If you are planning a car cover construction project consider aluminum products. Aluminum is durable and will retain it's good looks much longer than wood covers.
A car cover like the pictures below will not only be affordable but offer your vehicle lots of shade and protection. This is a freestanding aluminum awning with the ends of the panels left open to allow for snow runoff. The steel posts are buried 2' into the ground and set in concrete. The gutters have been turned upside down and used as beams for the panels to be screwed into.
The clouds in the background were giving us a bit of a scare. We had scheduled one day to be out of town and complete the job. To be rained out was not in our plans. Luckily the rain held off and the job was finished as planned.
This car cover was constructed near Roosevelt Lake in Arizona. Many valley residents have property like this near a lake, or up farther into the high country, in places like Pinetop and Show Low. We build car covers, awnings, sheds, rooms and decks all over the great state of Arizona. We also ship our aluminum products all across the US. Please use this quote form for a no obligation estimate.
