Ideas For Your Home
There are many ways to build a carport cover. On this page we will
take a look at a few ideas from the state of Missouri.
This carport is
all wood construction and it was built in such a way as
to not look like an add on.
The roof is plywood with
shingles and a nice attic area was built underneath.
This is a
wood carport attached to a house. The beams
were set on steel posts and mounted to a concrete slab. An
aluminum fascia cap was added to protect the paint. The rain
gutter was an afterthought but it is very effective at keeping the
roof debris off the driveway.
This is a metal
cover like the ones that can be found at Wal-Mart
and Home Depot. They come in do-it-yourself kits and if
anchored well can last for many years. In most cases you will
have different options for siding color. When matched to the
house, like this one, they don't look bad at all.
This is a very simple wood carport cover. It uses 4x4 posts
and 2x6 rafters. The plywood over the rafters is then covered
with felt paper and shingles. There is no way to hide that it
was added on but they do make a quality cover at a low price.
