In the past, the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960’s garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time, often without any maintenance or inspection, the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak. This weakening of the springs or points of attachment would often lead to an inadvertent explosive failure flinging the broken spring components across the garage, embedding the spring or steel components into the garage walls, cars or other items in the path of travel. Unfortunately, sometimes people were in the path of travel of these explosive occurrences. As these springs failed, as an attempted safeguard, some manufacturers devised a "caging" system for the springs. These cages were retrofitted onto the stretched springs in an attempt to capture the parts that would release if a failure occurred. While these caging devices were helpful, they were not completely effective. Some of these spring devices are still in use today. Whenever this condition exists or the quality of garage components are questionable, a qualified professional service technician should be consulted.

If the car port is beside your house you can share a mutual wall and thereby save some money. Will the carport add to the beauty of your home or detract from the appearance of your home? Perhaps it would be best for your carport to be a stand alone structure near your house or behind the house.

These structures are constructed in a free standing position. Some exceptions are mounted on a wall. A carport does not have a complete wall enclosure unlike other structures. Carports are basically intended for car owners who want to have their vehicles protected.

Although materials such as wood have been employed in making carports both presently and in the past, there seems to be a preference for metal carports to wooden carports. This seems to be due to the fact that wooden carports are often exorbitant.
