Carports and Patio Covers in Zephyrhills, Clearwater and Tarpon Springs, FL

Carports and patio covers are practical and sensible extensions to your home

If you are thinking about home extensions and improvements you should seriously consider carports and patio covers. Both are extremely useful and sensible investments at the same time. A-1 Quality aluminum is a recommended contractor for screen enclosures in Naples and Clearwater, including carports, patio covers, pool enclosures, screened porches and screened rooms.

A carport is a good complement or alternative to a traditional garage. With a carport you get many of the benefits of a garage but at a fraction of the cost. Your vehicle is sheltered from adverse weather and protected from sun, wind, hail and snow. Nobody wants to scrape snow off their windscreen on a cold winter’s morning.  And when the sun beats down your car will get very hot inside making it comfortable top drive. Sun rays can also cause you vehicle upholstery to fade and crack.

Apart from protecting and extending the life of your car a carport can be used as a general shelter area in bad or uncomfortable weather.  For example you can pull your barbecue under a carport, store stuff or just get out of the sun or rain when you need to be outside. And if you consider yourself something of a handyman you can get one of those DIY kits and install the carport yourself.

Patio covers also improve your outdoor living by offering protection against the weather as well as insects and bugs.  Whether you go for fully or partially enclosed patios, you add comfort to your outdoor living while at the same time adding value to your property.

Carport and patio covers don’t have to look like afterthoughts.  Modern technology, quality components and innovative designs mean you get screen enclosures that look great and don’t stand out like a sore thumb.
