Building Of The Week – 12×26 Custom Single Carport

12x26 Metal Boat Carport

A carport doesn’t have to be huge in order to provide reliable protection! Got a single vehicle, RV, or boat you need to keep under cover? This featured custom single carport will do just the trick. Plus, this steel structure offers a level of performance you simply can’t get from a building made with wood or aluminum.


As is the case with any carport or outdoor shelter, the roof overhead is really the most important feature. Because the roof provides structural stability – and is really your first line of defense – you really don’t want to cut any corners there. And the vertical roof we’ve placed on this metal carport is really the best roof you can get! It’s constructed on a sturdy A-frame, and includes all the bracing & reinforcement it needs to stand strong in the face of multiple weather threats. Thanks to the engineering standards we follow at Carport Central, this shelter is certified to withstand wind loads of 140 mph and snow loads of 30 psf.

It’s fully enclosed on both sides too, so it delivers an additional level of protection from wind, rain, sun, snow, or falling debris. At the same time, both front and back ends are left open to allow for easy access in either direction; you can back in as easily as you can pull through. It’s taller than a standard carport, too. Most carports are only built to a height of 7’ or 8’, but this one has a leg height of 10’. The immediate advantage of a taller carport like this is that you’re not limited to just being able to park a standard passenger vehicle. With this much vertical clearance, you can choose to accommodate a boat or RV instead. In other words, this custom carport gives you more options!


This featured install looks pretty sweet against the backdrop of its wooded lot, too. The roof and the sides are covered in an attractive green, while the trim is done in a nice complementary tan. But what if your carport won’t be installed in a wooded area? Or what if you’d like to have some other colors from which to choose for your roof, sides, and trim? Not a problem. Carport Central offers 14 standard colors and 3 premium colors from which to choose (specific color availability can vary by location), so you’ve got all sorts of color combination possibilities. You can even go with a two-tone wainscot look for the sides, if you prefer.
