The benefits of a detached garage addition to replace a carport:
First, let's get familiar with the overall change. Here are a few small images of the old 1-car carport from a few angles. (To see bigger images, scroll down.) You can see a rather small shed on the left side plus a minimal roof for shade (as well as some protection from things like hail storms). Obviously, there is not much security from that carport plus no insulation from heat or cold. Next, just below are a few similar angles showing the new garage.
The new garage is quite attractive. The contrasting colors match the new exterior renovations to the house (which our contractors can also provide in addition to any garage construction needs). You can see that the new garage has ample space for two cars, plus off to the right is a large storage area. That extra room is useful for many things, including as a hiding place to stash Christmas presents (because the kids would never look there).
Custom "design and build" services for the construction of your new garage
Generally speaking, most garages are a lot alike. To add an extra window or side door can be extremely easy to do. Most people who are looking for a garage builder mainly just want the roofline and the exterior to match the rest of the home.
Otherwise, some of the other common reasons that sometimes a few changes need to be made to a standard design are (1) the budget and (2) lot restrictions (like on how close you can build to any particular property line - also known as "setbacks"). Our garage construction team can speak with you about your priorities, then research the regulations, plus design and build your perfect new garage. If you are open to suggestions on the best way to finance the building of your new garage (even if you are still qualifying for a mortgage to buy the property), then be sure to let us know that detail when you contact us.
Fortunately, many garage designs and blueprint sets have some built-in flexibility. For instance, changing the depth from from 20' to 24' can be very easy (and can allow you more space to pull in longer vehicles or to back in a boat trailer). The width is also variable, as well as most any other feature, like a single 2-car garage door instead of 2 small garage doors (and two openers).

Last, if you need a reliable company to build your new garage (or you just want to talk with us about modifying a design to better fit your needs), then use the contact button in the very top left of this page. (In fact, if you want to have both a garage and a carport, our contractors can even build one along the side the other!) Since our garage builders are general contractors, too, then people who are considering multiple renovations can get bids on individual projects or a single bid on the entire remodel.
