Default Stand Alone Carports vs Attached

Hi all, Do those stand alone carports hold up under rough weather pretty good? Or would you recommend only having the attachment kind built onto the house?

I turned my garage into a full time woodworking shop. Even screened in the overhead door to keep out flies and mosquitoes. There are times when I need to work on my cars so I had one of the free standing car ports put on my driveway. It has been up 2 years without a single problem. I had them set it with one end right up against the garage and I sealed it with spray foam. I can go in and out of the garage for tools and such without getting wet when it is raining. LOL
