Carport: A Great Investment

Do you park your car outside? Do you not have a garage, or is it so full of storage, tools or equipment that you can no longer park your vehicle inside? If the answer is yes, you park your car on the road or on an uncovered driveway then it’s time to consider a carport.

Far too many people are leaving one of their biggest investments exposed to the elements for long periods of time, allowing rain, snow, hail, and other inclement weather – as well as animals and tree branches or other debris to damage it.

Protect your investment in your vehicle and reduce the likelihood of wear, tear and damage to it. Whether you need a structure for one car or three, a metal carport is a wise investment for several reasons.

Protect your vehicle from weather damage. When you’re parking your car under a tree or out in the open, rain, snow, ice, and the normal heat and light of the sun can cause extensive damage to your car over time.

Extra security and convenience. With optional lighting installed inside the carport, you will have an added measure of security for your vehicles, as well as yourself. A carport that extends to one of your homes’ doors will also make unloading groceries that much easier.

Added value to your home.  A well designed and high quality carport will be a financial asset to your home and a draw for future buyers.

Is Your RV Ready for the Road?

The best time of the year for your camper is almost here: Spring! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and the temperatures are starting to rise. Winter will be over soon enough, which means it’s time to prepare your RV for the open road!

She’s been safely stored under your metal RV carport during these cold months. It’s time to open her up, clean her up, fine tune her and get her ready for some new family adventures. Follow these simple steps in order to get your camper ready for the months ahead so that you can enjoy your camper without any issues arising.

Check the exterior – It’s not uncommon to find a water leak after the winter months. Check your roof and all the caulking around the windows, vents, air conditioners, and doors to make sure there are no cracks or missing caulk.

Charge the battery – Charge the battery completely. Also, make sure to check the water level in your battery and inspect the exterior. In the event it froze over the winter the outside may be cracked and the battery should be replaced.

Check the tires – Inspect your tires for sidewall cracks or cracks between the treads and replace the tire if you find any. Also, check the tire pressure.

Inspect the dump hoses – Sewer hoses have a limited lifespan. Inspect your sewer hose for any tears or holes before using it.

Clean your appliances – Inspect all appliances, including the outside access covers for your water heater and refrigerator for debris like spider webs, nests, dead insects or small critters.

With your checks complete, you’re ready to roll. Be safe and have a great camping season!
