If you’ve ever attempted to carry a boot-load of groceries from the car to the house during a downpour or had to remove ice from your car windows on a frosty morning, you’ll certainly understand that a Melbourne carport can be a great investment.
And while there’s little doubt that a carport in Melbourne can be a blessing in wet or frosty weather, with summer just around the corner it’s important to remember that a carport is a must have all-year-round.
Studies have shown that temperatures inside a car parked in the sun can soar 30 degrees or more higher than the temperature outside the car. You don’t need to be a maths whiz to calculate that 70-plus degree temperatures can therefore be a common occurrence inside your car during summer. As well as being darn uncomfortable, this heat can be potentially unsafe for the elderly or those with medical conditions. On the other hand, a car parked in the shade, particularly the shade of a carport, can be 15 degrees cooler than one parked in the sun.
Planning is important for any outdoor structure. For a carport you should give careful consideration to aspects such as where you want to locate your carport, the size of the carport you require (remember to think about potential future needs as well as current), the style of carport that will match or compliment your house and the materials.
Outside Concepts can help you with all these aspects and more, including council planning and building requirements.
