Carport Designs That Can Make Your Home Look Better
Let’s face it. When you install a carport, what you generally get are four to 6 posts, a roof, and you are done. The use of a carport, after all, is to provide your vehicle with a roof and most carport designs that you find being sold do just that.
Mostly we want a carport that actually looks good and adds to the beauty of your home. There are actually a few designs that you can find being sold in kits by manufacturers. There are also a few carport manufacturers that can customize your carport for you. All you need to do is to come up with the design that you like. To help you come up with ideas, here are a few that might be worth looking into the following:
Industrial Style Carport
If you have a rather modern looking house with glass and metal all around, you might want to consider. Your posts can be I-beams in black and your carport can have a high ceiling, kind of like what you would find in a loft apartment. You can then have clear or smoked polycarbonate roofing to tie in with the metal and glass design of your home. For a more industrial look, you can have a polished concrete floor for your carport or simply have gravel on it.
Pergola Style Carport
This is a carport that looks more like a garden feature than a carport. It is one that has posts that support an open lattice roof. Usually, pergolas have vines running through the lattice, which offer natural shade for the structure. For your pergola style carport, you can have clear polycarbonate roofing to allow sunlight in while still keeping your vehicle safe from rain and direct sunlight. You can also choose to have crossbeams instead of a lattice roof for your pergola carport.
Rustic Style Carport
Another idea you can go with when you want a carport design that helps enhance the look of your home is the rustic style carport. This is great if you have a rustic style home that uses dark wood and shingles for the roof. You can use the same types of materials for this carport design, and you can make it look more rustic. Probably use stained wood pillars and crossbeams, stone base, and a lava stone driveway.
Red Brick Carport
Also, you can opt for a carport that looks like it was transported into the present from the 60’s. The posts can be made with red brick and the roof can be either shingles or shale. The flooring can be poured concrete or you can opt for gravel for a more laid-back and nostalgic look. Another, you can opt for red clay shingles for the roof to give your carport a unified look.
These are just a few ideas that you can use to give your home a boost in the aesthetics department. Other ideas for great looking carport designs that you can use for your home include a carport with arched entryways, log-cabin inspired carports and modern carports with flat roofs and thin posts in monochromatic shades.

Different Barn Styles You Can Choose From For Your Varying Needs
When you talk about barns, the general idea that pops into a person’s mind is an image of an a-frame building with large double doors and no windows. While a lot of barns are designed this way, this is not the only design these barns come in. There are a lot of barn styles for you to choose from, and a few barn types that you can pick from as well.
What is the difference between a barn style and a barn type? For one, a style is basically the design of the structure while the type is the composition and material used to make such a structure. To help you decide which barn style and barn type is best for your varying needs, here are some descriptions for each to help you out:
- Gable Barns – this is the traditional barn that you would imagine if someone mentions this building to you. Also called an A-frame building, these barns have a triangular roof with a rather steep slope on each side, with the pitch of the roof varying between 4/12 and 12/12.
- Gambrel Barns – gambrel barns are also called Dutch style barns, and come with a roof that has double slopes on each side, with one slope being steeper than the other.
- Bank Barns – this barn is named as such because it stands on a bank or side of the hill, with one part lower than the other. This is often built on property that is hilly or uneven.
- Monitor Barns – these are barns that come with a lower wall and an upper wall, as well as a lower roof and upper roof. Also called a raised roof barn, you will find these are preferred by some not only because of its look but because the higher central roof actually makes the barn cooler.
- Post Frame Barns – these are barns that are constructed using a framing system that utilizes vertical columns and wood roof trusses. Also called a pole barn, these are the most economical to construct and one of the easiest to put up as well.
- Post and Beam Barns – if you want a very durable and heavy-duty barn, this is what you should build. This kind of structure is built with a solid frame that uses posts, headers, girts, loft joists, and rafters that are made with heavy wooden beams. The wood beams used in this kind of a barn are bigger and heftier than those used in a post frame barn, and these are connected using mortise and tendon joinery.
- Modular Barns – modular barns can come in either partly assembled or fully assembled designs. Fully assembled modular barns are delivered to the site on a flatbed truck and can be used immediately with no additional work needed for its completion. Partially assembled modular barns are also delivered via flatbed trucks or via trailers but may require a bit of finishing and construction work after delivery since these may lack a few components for completion. These are usually larger than fully assembled modular barns.
- Steel Barns – this is one of the favorites of farm owners and those who purchase barns for whatever needs they may have. This is because steel barns are versatile and can be used for just about anything. These are also easy to construct but durable, are fire resistant, can’t be damaged by termites, and are easy to maintain.
Used vs. New Carports: Why New Is Best
Adding a carport to your property can provide you with a great deal of added storage or work space for far less than the cost of a garage addition to your home. But one of the first questions that many consumers ask is why not buy a used carport and save even more money? There are several reasons that a new carport is a better choice than a used one.
A carport is a structure that is comprised of a frame and a roof. Some models also offer side panels that can be added. But in most cases a carport is designed to be constructed once and then remain in place. Sure the bolts and screws can be removed to disassemble it. And then it can be put back together but there is a good chance that some of the pieces will not fit together as well because the ground or surface that it is built on could be slightly different than the original location. And the most important thing to remember is that this carport is going to be put to the test by wind, rain and snow so you want to know that it can handle those stresses. A new carport comes with a full warranty if you ever have issue but not a more “affordable” used carport.
Sadly, we do not live in a perfect world and you cannot assume that everyone is totally honest. So buying anything second hand holds an inherent risk. You have no idea how well the carport was maintained or if any of the parts will be damaged when it arrives. But a new carport will arrive in perfect condition. And if there is an issue then you get a brand new replacement part from the company who sold you the carport. Granted, you are paying a little bit more but you are getting a warranty and a brand new product which is good for peace of mind.
As in most cases, you get what you pay for when you try to buy a cheaper used carport. And because you are going to use the structure to protect a vehicle, items that you want to store or maybe even a boat, the durability and integrity of the carport is critical. Buying new is worth the extra money to know that your belongings will be well protected.
