Top choice: 7 advantages of a steel carport kit
Building a carport on your property is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. They provide your car and possessions with an extra level of protection, add exponential value to your property and can be used for other endeavours like home DIY stations and studios.
But to get the most out of your investment, you should never look past a steel design, as these provide your home with the most value. Carport kits prices vary in price, but one thing’s for sure: you’ll never beat the value of Australian BlueScope Steel for your design.
Let’s take a closer look at why:
- Steel designs are easier to construct
Steel carport kits are prefabricated and can be quickly sent to your location for installation. Prefabrication involves cutting, welding and drilling done at the manufacturing site, making it much easier to erect the final structure. The completed kit will then be quickly installed on site, making the process much faster than installing a brand new garage.
- They offer the best value
Due to manufacturing efficiency and the wealth of benefits attached to steel structures, this option provides the very best value for money. Construction costs on a conventional construction are typically much higher than a prefabricated model, ensuring you are receiving great value for your investment.
- They are a lighter material (yet incredibly tough)
Steel, although being a relatively lightweight material, is actually one of the toughest and most durable on the market. Renowned for its strength and resilience, steel constructions have one of the highest strength to weight ratios in the industry, whilst being lighter than brick, concrete and even wood.
- They are easy to clean & maintain
Steel is essentially a maintenance-free material, ensuring you won’t have any trouble with insect damage, rotting or structure deterioration. Steel carport kits are resistant to warping, mould, mildew, cracks, creeping, splitting and more. What’s more, this fantastic material is resistant to weather, temperature/climate patterns, and you will only ever need a little soap and water if you want to wipe down the structure!
- Steel carries a lower fire risk
This is especially important for homeowners in rural areas, as steel is non-combustible and highly resistant to fire. This can also work in your favour when going to insure your prized possessions.
- Withstand climatic extremes
The world’s tallest buildings are made from steel as they comply with strict wind and seismic resistance requirements. Concrete is the next strongest material, but it is also susceptible to cracks or shifts from seismic activity, as well as being more susceptible to crumbling in strong winds.
Steel has the capability to bend slightly and sway along with a storm. Steel can handle the force of wild weather, due to it being ductile, meaning it can bend without breaking and absorb this type of energy.
- It can greatly increase your home’s value
Steel is the best carport kit option for if you want to sell your home, as it is a highly reliable material that is renowned for offering the best level of protection for precious goods. Steel can increase your home’s resale value exponentially, another reason why this material is simply perfect for this type of structure.
As you can see, steel is the ultimate building material for these vital structures. It comes with so many fantastic benefits that make it a joy to have on the property, and we’re sure you will be absolutely thrilled with your stunning new structure once it is quickly prefabricated and delivered to your location!
