Why a Metal Carport Makes Sense for Your North Carolina Lifestyle

I Like Calling North Carolina Home

Many of you NC residents may be too young to remember that popular commercial jingle which was introduced into our airwaves during the 1970s. But if you’re like me and was fortunate enough to grow up here during that time period, “I Like Calling North Carolina Home” got drilled into your brain hundreds of times between episodes of Sanford and Son, Happy Days, Good Times, Laverne & Shirley, and The Jeffersons. I recall the jingle sounding a little on the cheesy side, but the truth spoken in those lyrics has not been lost on me over all these years. North Carolina really is a great place to call home!

And those of us who grew up here aren’t the only people who realize this. Long-gone are the days when North Carolina was able to fly under the radar as just another sleepy Southern state that all the Yankees (translation: anyone who lives north of Richmond, VA) passed through on their way to Florida. People have been moving to the Old North State in droves for decades now. As of 2019, NC continues to be among the top 10 fastest-growing U.S. states, and currently ranks as the 9th most-populated state in the union.

Why does everyone seem to want to come here? For starters, North Carolina has an ideal set of geological features. We’ve got the Blue Ridge mountains, we’ve got plenty of gorgeous beaches and islands, and we also have a rich assortment of foothills, piedmont, and coastal plain sections. In terms of attractive land features, we’ve really got it all.

Oh, and there’s the weather. NC is blessed with a temperate climate that features four distinct seasons. We get plenty warm in the summer, many parts of the state get some of the white stuff in the winter, and spring and fall are both refreshingly pleasant here. Too cold for you “up North”? Too hot for you “down South”? In North Carolina, you can find just the right weather sweet spot.

And if the geography and climate aren’t enough, NC has a pretty thriving job market overall, and it’s harder to find nicer neighbors than those you’ll encounter within our borders. Our metropolitan areas continually rank as some of the best places to live and work in the nation, and we’ve still got plenty more rural areas that continue to exhibit their own brand of Southern, small town charm.

A Metal Carport Suits a North Carolina Lifestyle

All that being said, this article wasn’t written to try and attract more people to relocate here. We’ve got plenty of folks here now, thanks! No, this article is really meant for those of us who already call North Carolina home. We do enjoy a great quality of life here, but I want to take a moment and let you in on a little secret that more and more North Carolinians have found that’s making their life even better. What am I talking about? A metal carport from Metal Barn Central, of course!

Tired of seeing your vehicle’s interior and exterior fade from sun damage? Need to protect your truck from hail damage when a storm passes through? Tired of having to scrape and dig out your car every time it snows? Wish you had someplace to shelter your boat or RV? Metal Barn Central has a solution for you! Our steel carports, garages, barns, and other custom structures are extremely rugged and versatile, and are fully customizable for open-air, partially-enclosed, or fully-enclosed protection. You can also choose from three roof styles and from many great color options for your roofing, siding, and trim. Our steel buildings are known for better strength, durability, & cost-effectiveness as compared to shelters made with wood or other materials. They’re also more versatile and adaptable, less expensive to insure, and fully portable should you ever decide to relocate.

More Than Just a Carport

While our carports are great for protecting your vehicles and equipment from the elements, they’re useful for other things, too. Our steel structures also make great shelters for picnics or barbeques, as well as nice covered areas for the kids to play under. You can also use them as outdoor studios, or places to stay dry and shaded while working on hobbies or other projects. If you like the idea of combining open-air space with enclosed storage space, we can also provide you with a combination utility carport. And as our name implies, we do much more than just metal carports at Metal Barn Central. We also provide metal barns (obviously!), as well as garages, RV covers, storage sheds, large clear-span buildings, and more! Basically, if you can think of it, we can help you design it!
