We know carports are very useful additions, but USA Eagle knows you are budget driven and need answers for accounting on what the return on investment will be for your carport. To answer this question is not an easy task as carports support a wide variety of business models. However, because we care, we will pass along some examples.
We know for an apartment community, a carport can reap a return as soon as 3 to 4 years. This can be done by transferring the cost of the carport to its residents. Paying for the luxury of shade and vehicle preservation is an easy decision for the average worker.
What about other companies? How do carports reflect a good investment? Think of the current appraisal of your company’s property. Now imagine what it would be if a carport improved the property? By adding a carport to your current business, not only does it enhance the ambience of your parking space, but it also adds value to your location.
In the book “Real Estate Riches”, Dolf De Roos talks about one of his favorite solutions to obtain money and it all refers to the Humble Carport.
Aside from the benefit of protecting your tires and vehicle interior from the blaring sun, attaching your carport to an existing building can help cut down electricity costs. Think about it, more shade makes the air conditioner run less.
We have mentioned this in our previous blogs, but solar carports are a great idea and can actually pay you in the future. Rain barrels can also help you save money when water bills sky rocket.
Finally, carports build customer appreciation. Maybe that doesn’t seem like much on the scale of ROI, but it makes sense that a happy customer makes for a buying customer. Take the time to review your options and call one of our friendly USA Eagle Representatives to discuss ideas about how to build your next Carport. You will be glad you did.
