Hail can dent and bruise your car. Excessive rain means rust. What it comes down to is… the elements are unforgiving. How can you keep your vehicles safe from weather damage?
Know When Vehicles Are Most at Risk
Larger vehicles are more at risk than small vehicles. RVs have been around a long time. In 1910, Pierce Arrow constructed the first RV or the Touring Landau. Its backseat doubled as a bed, there was a chamber pot inside and an intercom system for easy communication between passengers and the driver of the RV. RVs remain popular today, but standard houses and built in garages do not have enough room to accommodate them. Leaving RVs outside, though, opens up countless possibilities for weather and water related damage.
Larger vehicles are not the only ones at risk. Vehicles of any size are susceptible to wear and tear from hail, and hail damage is not covered by most insurance plans.
Carports and Garages Are Obvious Solutions
Architect Frank Lloyd Wright explained, “A car is not a horse. It does not need a barn.” It should come as no shock, then, that Wright also began describing shelters as “carports” and officially coined the term. Whatever you call them, metal carports or metal garages protect cars from the otherwise unforgiving elements.
Not only do metal garages or metal carport kits provide protection from or entirely eliminate exposure to precipitation and harmful elements like hail, these garages are also environmentally friendly. In North America, over 80 million tons of steel are recycled every year. Most garages or carports are constructed using these eco friendly, recycled materials.
Keep your car or RV safe and like new with a clear conscience by using garages made of recycled metals.
