Choose a Protective Roof to Meet Your Exact Needs

The key to protecting your valuable belongings lies in choosing the right roof for your metal carport. Metal carports come with three general roof types:

  • Regular Style Roof: Features a Radius Bend Frame Design with the roofing panels installed horizontally. The corrugated ridges in the panel run from front to back or end to end of the unit. Our Regular Style Roof design is the most economical unit that we offer since it does not have the hat channel, the ridge cap, the eave side trim, and the welded transition from the roof bow/truss to the leg a period.
  • Boxed Eave Style: Features an A-Frame Design which can in many situations replicate the look of your home. The roof panels on the Boxed Eave Style are installed horizontally, which means the panel’s ridges run from front to back or end to end. The Boxed Eave Style is more cost effective since it does not have the ridge cap or hat channel which are included in the Vertical Style Roof. In addition the roof bow/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin into the leg post. To finish off the Boxed Eave Style’s appearance, we install Boxed Eave trim underneath the eaves sides of the roof bow/truss.
  • Vertical Roof Style: Features an A-Frame Design with the panels installed vertically. The great thing about the Vertical Roof Style design is that the roofing panels are installed Vertically from the ridge cap down, which allows rain, snow, ice, dirt and debris to slide off the unit with ease. Steel Panels on homes and business applications are always oriented this way. Like with the Boxed Eave Roof Style the roof bow/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin on to the legs of the unit. A Vertical Style Unit also has Vertical Roof trim on the side and trim on each to provide a finished appearance as well as a hat channel to support the vertical panels and it adds rigidity to the structure.

Customizing a steel structure to fit your needs

One of the best things about our metal carports is their extreme versatility. Do you have multiple vehicles and significant storage needs? Consider the benefits of a triple wide carport. Do you need to store a large truck or heavy construction equipment? We can build metal carports with a leg height as high as 20 feet.

Installation and Pre-Installation Procedures

On your metal carport delivery day, our installation team will arrive with all the tools necessary to build your building on the level site. The team will secure base rails and preassemble the frame on the ground to exact customer specifications. Installers will then secure the frame to the base rail foundation, ensuring that the entire structure is square and plumb before they complete the installation process.

All building permitting and foundation construction must be completed before the delivery date. For more information about local construction procedures and zoning regulations, contact your local government office. Rules and regulations will vary significantly from location to location.
