The coast of North Queensland has some of the harshest conditions in the country and we have one of the highest UV ratings in the world!. As such, getting a carport is a good idea if you reside in Townsville. The primary function of a carport is to protect your vehicle or vehicles from the harshness and unpredictability of Townsville’s harsh tropical weather.
So what do you need to know before ordering a Carport in Townsville?
At Carpenters Townsville, we offer Townsville Carports of varying designs and at affordable prices. So let us consider some of the factors that position you in the best before investing in a carport in Townsville.
Carports are made from a wide array of materials ranging from PVC to steel. Unlike steel, PVC is relatively cheap and does not require regular maintenance. However, carports made from PVC are vulnerable to expansions and contractions when exposed to too much sun. Therefore, given Townsville’s hot and humid climate, PVC is not the best material for making carports. Steel is also not such a good choice as it is prone to rust and is expensive. The best carports for use in Townsville are aluminium carports. Aluminium is both cheap and resistant to corrosion. Thus, aluminium can withstand the harshness of Townsville’s weather.
Apart from the material, it is also important to consider the size of the carport you wish to buy. Carports come in all sizes and designs. If you want a carport for sheltering your compact hatchback , small truck or boat, then a small carport will do just fine. Most standard carports measure 12 by 21. On the other hand, if you own a large truck, a large family minivan or both then you will need to have a large carport. To accommodate your large vehicle you can find a carport with an extra wide design. Thus, the size and design of the carport you want to purchase should match that of the car you want to shelter.
