Carports are wonderful as a temporary shelter for workshops and building areas when homeowners are remodeling. It keeps the garage open for parking vehicles and can keep the construction mess outside of the home. When tarps are installed along the sides of the carport it can make it less of an eyesore for storing materials as opposed to having them spread across the yard. The tarps will also keep nearly all but torrential rains from getting to the materials.
