What is a Carport?

Carports are outdoor structures with roofs supported by beams or posts. They protect vehicles from the elements, like an outdoor garage, but without a door. 

If you don’t have a garage on your property, it might be worth installing a carport. Carports not only safeguard your vehicles from wind, rain, snow, and UV rays but also increase the value of your home and provide a versatile space for storage or other purposes.

Let’s delve deeper into the benefits of carports offered here at Siesta Windows: 

Protection from External Elements: 

Many people are forced to park their vehicles outside. Depending on where you live, parking your vehicle outdoors can leave it exposed to harsh weather like rain, ice, snow, sleet, wind, hail, and sun. Some of these can damage your prized possessions and reduce their lifespan. Having a carport can significantly protect your vehicle. 

Extra Space: 

Carports come in various sizes, offering extra room not just for vehicles but also for storing other items like recreational vehicles and lawn equipment and providing shaded areas for gatherings.

Protection from Vandalism and Theft: 

Carports can deter theft and vandalism by making vehicles less accessible targets compared to when they’re parked on the street.

House All Types of Vehicles: 

Despite the name, carports can shelter various vehicles, including RVs and motorcycles.


Open-sided carports make it easy to load and unload items from vehicles without worrying about doors or confined spaces. They also help prevent seats from becoming too hot in the summer.

Energy Efficiency: 

Carports consume less energy than garages, as they don’t require electric lights or door openers, thereby reducing energy costs.

Adds Value to Property: 

Having a carport can increase the value of a home, especially if it lacks a garage, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

Savings on Storage: 

Carports can provide additional storage space, potentially eliminating the need to rent expensive storage units while still offering security for stored items when enclosed.
