Stop Sun Damage With a Steel Carport
Keeping your car in the shade provides the best protection against the dangers of the sun. If you don’t have a garage, a steel carport is your next best option. Although a plastic or fabric carport may seem like a good option at first, these materials also break down in the sun so they require frequent replacement.
Steel reflects both the heat and rays of the sun, so not only is your car protected from sun damage – it’s also cooler. You can further take advantage of the shade and cooling effect by placing the carport next to your home, which will provide additional shade and protection for your car.
The steel also keeps other weather, including hail and rain, off your car. Hail can tear right through flimsier materials, so they provide no protection. Even rain is a danger or fabric carports. Rain may pool on the fabric, leading to a collapse. Not only does this leave your car vulnerable to weather damage, but also to the dangers of the collapsing carport.
