Keen’s Buildings: Selecting the Best Carport for You
If you have a recreational vehicle, a carport can offer protection for your RV between trips. There are many different carports to choose from, so it can be difficult selecting the right one. To help you choose the ideal carport for you here are a few things to take into consideration.
Your carport’s primary purpose
The purpose of your carport will help you make crucial decisions about your construction. The size of your RV, the amount of protection you want to provide your vehicle, and your future plans (like if you want to buy another recreational vehicle) can all impact the size, function, and look of your carport.
Where will you choose to install your carport
Firstly, you’ll want to select an area that has enough space for the installation, ideally on level ground. If the ground is not level, you may have to level the area. Which foundation you want is another thing to consider.
Your geographic location will also determine some aspects of your building. Additionally, certain areas will require certification for your structure. It’s essential for buildings to withstand high winds in areas prone to thunderstorms (like Florida) or weight from the snow.
Knowing the typical weather for your region will help you make design choices that best protect your carport. If you live in Florida, you’ll want a carport that is able to sustain high winds, while also offering optimal protection from the sun.
Lastly, there are your personal preferences to consider. What do you want your carport to look like? Are there additional elements you want for your steel construction? How tall and wide would you like your carport to be? Here at Keen’s Buildings, we offer many customizability options for all of our buildings and constructions.
