When you are done reading this post about metal carport canopy, I believe you will decide to have it installed in your place. 

Or if you have it already installed, there is also a room for an adjustment.

The time and the efforts you make to keep your car engine alive, that's how you should care about its exterior as well as the interior.

Although, metal Carport canopy could also be used for more purposes such as car wash business or for storage.

We have talked about 5 Amazing Benefits of The Rectractable Awnings in the past.

Today, we want to talk about why you need this carport shade structure as a property owner, or a hotel owner, shopping malls, transporters etc.

How you can maintain it, maybe after few years of its installation and again, you may decide to upgrade to a newer version.

Let's jump in.

Why You Need Metal Carport Canopy

Metal carport canopy is a simple structure that doesn't have doors.

You are able to achieve the roof by a few vertical poles without any obstruction whatsoever at the parking space.

Most housing stock especially, in a place like the UK is beautifully made and equipped to reduce the impact of long periods of cold temperatures and a high degree snowfall.

So there has to be central heating, good materials that make the house warm while in such an environment. Good right?

Now one of your most valuables is your car.

It is not advisable to leave your car in the open because it gets exposed to the weather elements such as temperature and humidity.

Carport shade structure can protect your car from snow.

Then, in the tropical regions like Africa for example, in Nigeria. In most cases you see cars reducing paint beauty as a result of the negative impact of the UV rays.

And again this does not only affects your car paint but also causes the interior fabric to fade.

Metal carport canopy could add more value to your property.

It could provide extra storage like as I mentioned earlier.

Now, do you feel comfortable always parking your car under a tree canopy?

Think again.

Autoglym researchers have confirmed that the bird's deposits on your car, when it is not removed as soon as possible could make your car paint dull.

Meanwhile, when you try to remove the stain it toughens. I have personally tried it not quite long ago. So you need to keep your car paint protected in the shade.


If you ask me whether you can maintain this shade structure? I will say yes of course!

Metal carport canopy could sag for various reasons, for example, an inexperienced installer may install it and within some few minutes, it sags.

Or it may sag after some months, or sometimes after some years of its installation.

     Things to Do:
  • Make sure that both the horizontal and the vertical part of the shade structure are level.
  • Check if there are any possible rust and rot.
  • Remove any damaged part of the components. Therefore, there should be a replacement to avoid total damage.
  • But do bear in mind that it may attract reinstallation bill.                                          
Upgrade To  a Newer Version of Carport canopy

You may decide to build a newer version of carport shade structure to make things new and unique.

The new version is innovative, built with marquee design in mind.

That means you may choose to add side walls in the future to completely cover your car(s) if you will.

This design consists of the roof with original PVC fabric and steel framework. See one example on the screenshot below by Gala shade:

One of the most interesting things about this design is that it is not only used domestically but commercially such as a temporary garage, storage, weddings etc.

And finally, it is durable.
