Not only is aluminium a recyclable material, but it can also be painted in any colour - the possibilities are endless. You can match your carport with your carpentry, windows and doors, garage door, shutters, fences or gate. When choosing the colour of your carport, you should take into account your existing exterior design and your surroundings in order to make sure it fits in well with your surroundings and the rest of the building. Also, don't forget to consult your local council to find out if any colours are required or forbidden according to the local planning regulations, especially if you live in a listed or protected area.
Another important advantage of aluminium is that the coating requires very little maintenance. Good to know if you are still unsure whether to choose a wooden or aluminium carport. Wooden carports require care and maintenance, including a stain, varnish or preservative treatment at least once a year to keep them looking their best.
