Parking your car outside without a cover may not seem like a big deal, but there are steps to take that can prolong the life of car and protect it from daily wear and tear. Covered parking comes with several benefits that will keep your vehicle well cared for and maintained for years.
How Covered Parking Can Serve Your Vehicle
Adding a carport to your property comes with many benefits, specifically protection for your car or other vehicles. The exact benefits you experience will depend on the area where you live, but some possibilities include the following:
- Avoid damage. When parked outside, it’s possible that your vehicle could be damaged during a storm by falling branches, hail, etc. With a carport over the top of your vehicle, the roof of the carport will be there to protect the roof and windshield of your car. This way, tree branches, sticks, or pine straw will stay off your car and keep it from getting damaged.
- Cut down on car washes. A car that is parked under a carport should stay cleaner throughout the year than one parked outside. This means you’ll have to go to the car wash less frequently. That will not only save you money, but it may also help to preserve the condition of the exterior of your vehicle.
- Protect the wipers. You probably don’t think very often about the windshield wipers on your vehicle – you just want them to work when you press the button. Parking your car under a carport can keep your wipers in better condition than leaving the vehicle out in the open, especially if you live near trees that drop leaves or sap, or experience extreme temperatures. Ice buildup can also harm the condition of your wiper blades and they may need to be replaced more often as a result.
Of course, this is just a starting point for what you stand to gain from covered parking. Whether your local weather conditions are often blazing hot or freezing cold, keeping your vehicle protected from the elements will go a long way.
Other Important Benefits
Building a carport can protect the condition of your vehicle, but it comes with other benefits as well. If you live in a snowy climate, you won’t have to dig your vehicle out of that snow before leaving for the day. Sure, there might be some shoveling to do in your driveway, but your vehicle will be clear from snow and ready to head out.
Even if snow isn’t a concern, being under a roof is a nice advantage on a rainy day. For example, if you get home from the grocery store during a rainstorm, you’ll have cover to get out of the car, organize your bags, and prepare for the walk into the house. This is much more comfortable and convenient than getting soaked as soon as you open the door. Also, the ground below your feet should be mostly dry under the carport, which would not be the case with outdoor parking.
