A lot of people get confused with a garage and a carport because of their small yet significant differences. Although both offer outdoor car protection, carports are best for homes that have limited space. With a carport, you will no longer have to rent extra space for the storage of your vehicle.

To differentiate, a garage is a completely enclosed structure that has walls, roofing and a door. A carport, on the other hand, is a parking space with roofing but open sides. Both allow homeowners to keep their vehicles out of the weather, but a carport is more affordable in terms of construction and maintenance. Aside from its affordability, a carport is also best for areas experiencing heavy rains.

Here are some of the basic carport designs to help you choose which one best suits your home so that you can be sure to protect your vehicle from the harsh environment and other elements.
