7 Different Carport Options

When you do business with MCM, you have options…lots of them. See, we don’t have a one size fits all carport solution we try and push on everyone. Instead, we offer you a variety of choices to ensure that the final product we install for you is exactly what you want and need.

Below we highlight 7 options you will need to consider when you have a carport professionally designed and installed for your building.

1. Flat roof
2. Gabled roof
3. Post placement
4. Solar panels
5. RV size
6. Walkway
7. Types of trim

Each different option gives you a myriad of choices. For example, if you choose a gabled roof, then you can either have it covered in tin or with shingles. For post placement, you can have a single post in the middle or double posts on each end of the spaces.

Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for in the choices? No problem. Contact us and we’ll see how we can customize a carport to fit your needs.

3 Reasons to Add a Carport to Your Apartment Building

You own a multi-family dwelling and you need to maximize your investment. Maybe you’re in the renovations phase or perhaps you just have a little money set aside that you’d like to spend on a wise improvement. Whatever the case, adding a carport to your apartment building is a smart move. Here’s why:

  1. Adding a Carport to Your Property Increases the Resale Value. When it comes time to sell your property, every little improvement helps. The carports will boost the market value of your complex.
  2. Carports give you an additional revenue stream. When you add covered parking, you can charge extra. What many complexes do is make the covered parking an option to tenants at an additional cost.
  3. Commercial carports can attract more renters. Remember, you probably aren’t the only apartment complex worth renting from in your area. That said, you need every advantage you can get. In some cases, covered parking might be that deciding factor for a renter.
