carport conversion

Many people start out with a metal carport to keep their vehicles and other valued outdoor equipment sheltered from the elements. But as time goes by, households and businesses get larger, and carport owners start looking to build additional structures for added storage space.

If you own a steel carport, you can easily avoid the hassle and additional expense of building a separate structure on your property. Custom metal carports and carport kits are easily expandable, so they can meet your needs both now and in the future. Ready to grow? Here are some ideas to help you convert your carport into something that can accommodate your changing needs:

Carport Expansion or Utility Carport Conversion.

Looking for extra space to house additional vehicles or outdoor equipment? Expand your current carport to accommodate more vehicles, or provide additional storage for household items. If you need a more secure storage option, you can consider a utility carport with a shed added to the back for a convenient way to stash outdoor equipment.

Carport to Metal Garage Conversion.

Need additional protection from the elements or extra security for your cars and other equipment? Add value to your metal carport by enclosing the sides and customizing with windows, a walk-in door, or even a garage door!

Carport to Metal Workshop Conversion.

If you need a dedicated workspace, consider converting your engineered carport to a metal workshop by enclosing the carport on all sides. You can customize your workshop with insulation for comfort, a walk-in door for easy access, or a garage door for larger equipment. You could even build out from your current carport to have both an enclosed steel workshop and a carport that still provides shelter from the elements and allows you to load/unload equipment.

Carport to Metal Barn Conversion.

Would you like to have a sheltered space for your animals? Consider enclosing your carport with windows and a large door to keep your animals, feed, and care equipment dry and safe. For a larger space, you can build out from your carport to create an enclosed shelter and open-air lean-to for your animals.
