Features of A-Frame Metal Carports
Steel frame carports are twice as strong as standard aluminum, and the a-frame design offers enhanced structural support. While steel offers greater resistance to damage from weathering and corrosion, the boxed eve / a-frame slope design prevents debris and precipitation from accumulating on the roof. Steel also won’t turn chalky and worn looking as the years pass, which can be a problem with standard wood and asphalt roof structures.
What is the difference between an a-frame carport and a vertical-roof carport?
A-frame roofs are both durable and attractive, but they don’t cost as much as top-of-the line vertical roof metal carports.
How much does an a-frame carport cost?
The cost of an a-frame carport varies based on size, gauge of galvanized steel, and other customizations. Carport sizes for sale in our inventory include single, double and triple-wide. Use our metal carport prices chart or use our Built It Online tool to get a custom price and save your design:
What happens next after I purchase my carport?
It can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to arrange for the installation of your carport, depending on your location and permit process in your area. After purchase, the manufacturer will communicate with you to see if the install site has been prepped and is ready. Once the site is ready, they will share the estimated install time frame with you.
Do I need to prepare the site where my carport will be installed?
Yes. The installation site must flat & leveled. Depending on where you live, a building permit may be required. Use our Selecting the Best Location for Your Metal Building article as a guide.
What is a Certified Metal Carport?
Certified Metal Buildings are specifically designed to withstand weather conditions like heavy snow fall and high winds. Certification often implies a heavier gauge of steel and is available for an additional cost when specified during purchase.
