Steel is twice as strong as standard aluminum. Steel offers greater resistance to damage from weathering and corrosion especially when galvanized or coated. Steel also won’t turn chalky and worn looking as the years pass, which can be a problem with exposed aluminum structures.
What is the difference between a carport and a garage?
A carport is a roofed-over parking space with open sides, while a garage is typically defined as a completely enclosed structure with a garage door. When a carport is attached to a house, it usually has two or three open sides.
How much does a carport cost?
The cost of a carport varies based on size, gauge of galvanized steel, roof-type and other customizations. The regular roof style is the least expensive. The A-Frame (Boxed Eave) roof style requires slightly more investment. The vertical roof style carport is the premium roof style.

Certified Metal Buildings are specifically designed to withstand weather conditions like heavy snow fall and high winds. If you live in an area that regularly sees these types of weather, or an area that requires a permit for your metal building, you will need a certified metal carport. Certification often implies a heavier gauge of steel and is available for an additional cost when specified during purchase.
