How To Keep Your Driveway Safe With A Shade Structure

Jun 26, 2008
A shade structure is a necessary thing these days given the state of the weather and climatic conditions. The heat especially - it would be a very welcome thing to do as it would sort of reduce the direct impact of the heat on the building.

The driveway is a private road that enables vehicles to travel from a public road to the entrance of a building such as a house or an hotel. Thus is there any need for a shade structure on a driveway? This seems like a smple question really. But in all seriousness, it is not. This is because it is not exactly necessary that driveways have a form of shade structure.

However, in the planning of roads and homes, people tend to want to think of including a shade structure in the driveway. As far as I have seen, there is no driveway with a shade structure except in hotels and resorts. In all such cases, a driveway is of utmost importance. Why? Because the hotel management does not want their guests dripping water all over the hotel lobby particularly if they had to alight from their car in the rain before entering the hotel. So, in a sense, it can be said that the need for a shade structure on the driveway of any hotel is important and in the case of any other building, is dependent on the nature of the building that the driveway leads into.

So, how do you know what kind of shade structure to choose for a driveway if you need one?

It is all dependent on choice and what you intend to achieve with the driveway. Most people simply opt for the steel roof type as they are easy to maintain and do not require excessive maintenance costs. However, if you require something more aesthetic in nature, you might have to opt for the fabric canopy which is less durable than the steel type although it would still give the desired effect.

In summary, do home driveways need a shade structure? I would say no because there is really no need for it. Afterall, you would not be parking the car in the driveway. If however, the driveway is lined with trees which serve as some form of natural shade structures, it would be nice to leave the trees there unless they start constituting a nuisance. So, before putting up any form shade structure, look at all the options available and make your choice based on all the nformation you have.
