The oldest known piece of steel is 4,000 years of age. It was found in Anatolia while archaeological work was being done. Today, the fields of construction and engineering count it as the most adaptable and vital substance on earth. Among its many purposes is as the material used in car ports and and cheap garage kits.
These steel carports can protect vehicles against inclement weather. And with about seven percent of the population in the United States in possession of an RV and U.S. citizens having about 18 million boats for the purpose of fun and relaxation, these kinds of structures–like metal garages–can be used to house these vehicles as well.
Architects from the Prairie School first introduced carports in 1909. Minnesota architecture professionals tried to dub them “auto spaces,” but that was unsuccessful. In fact, it was frank Lloyd wright who came up with the term “carport,” adding that unlike a horse, a car is not meant to be kept in a barn.
When choosing a steel carport, you may want to be certain that it has constructed using mostly steel that has been recycled. More than 95% of the water involved in the process of forging steel has been reused.
