Shelter From The Storm with Elephant Structures
Shelter is one of our three basic needs, alongside food and water. But it’s important to consider in modern society what you need to protect. A total of twenty three ambulances were taken out of service by a hailstorm in Fort Worth, Texas on Saint Patrick’s Day. Many cars in the area received enough damage to smash their windshields. In San Antonio, another hailstorm produced hail up to 4.5 inches in diameter- the same size as a grapefruit. Then, San Antonio was hit again the next week with hail the size of tennis balls causing almost as much damage as the first storm. High intensity hailstorms also affected several other areas across the United States including Nebraska, Indianapolis, Fort Smith, and Washington D.C. last year. Hail forms when thunderstorm updrafts are strong enough to carry water droplets above freezing level. This process forms a hailstone which grows larger and larger as additional water freezes onto it. Altogether, hail storms have cost the United States billions of dollars in insured damages, and most of the damage is done to cars parked without shelter. Leaving your car parked in the driveway or on the street without shelter leaves it vulnerable to hail damage. It also leaves your car without protection against things you don’t think about like sunlight. Long-term sun exposure can cause your paint job to fade and your interior to overheat. When your interior overheats, it could cause substantial damage to your upholstery. Tinting your windows is one way to protect the interior of your vehicle, but it isn’t always attractive and it still leaves the exterior of your car vulnerable to nature’s wrath.
The only way to ensure that your car is protected is to make sure that it’s shielded by a garage. If you don’t have one, then there’s not much you can do to make sure your vehicle won’t be damaged. Elephant Structure carports offer the best defense against Mother Nature. It is a cheap way to ensure that your car won’t get damaged and start to lose value. With durable metal panels, cars and other stored items are totally protected from the elements. The carports are aesthetically pleasing and completely customizable. You can choose which gauge, color, and design you want to make your structure. Depending on what best suits your needs, you can choose whether you want a completely enclosed space or a partially open one with a metal awning to protect your vehicle. The carports are extremely durable as well. They stand up to extreme weather and protect your car from the sun. There’s even an online interface where you can build your own carport virtually. When you’re done all you have to do is pay online and submit your order. Keeping your car protected from nature is extremely important when considering its value over time. When left without shelter, cars are vulnerable. You run the risk of suffering accidental damages to the car and decreasing its value.
