Most people purchase a carport to protect their vehicles and valuables from the elements, but our custom-built metal carports can do that and so much more! For example, a carport can double as a covered picnic area or an outdoor studio to keep you dry and safe! We can also build small metal sheds attached to the carport structure in case you need little extra storage. These are called utility carports or storage carports; they serve the dual purpose of vehicle protection and outside storage. Contact us today to let us show you some of the most valuable uses for a steel carport and the many benefits it will bring!

What size metal carport is suitable for your growing storage needs? Here are a few factors to consider when determining the right size carport:
Determine whether you need a single car carport, 2-car carport or specialty size carport for an RV, boat or agricultural equipment. The size of the vehicles or equipment you’re housing will help you narrow down the size you need. As a “guideline,” a 12’ wide custom carport can fit a single car, a 22’ wide steel carport can fit two full-size cars, and a 26’ wide carport can accommodate three midsize cars.
If you plan to store more items in addition to your vehicles, you may want to consider adding more length to your custom prefab carport. The pre-engineered standard lengths for adding length to your design plans are 21’, 26’, 31’, and up, increasing in 5’ increments.
When deciding which carport style will best match your requirements, remember steel carports are measured by the height on the sides of the structure, not the top point of the carport. Make sure that your vehicle can clear the lowest point of the metal carport! Carport Central has a variety of carport buildings for sale with a standard height of 6’; however, your steel carport plans can be customized to a taller height. If you plan to enclose your metal carport and install a garage door in the future, make sure you consider that when customizing your steel carport.
Roof style can make a big difference in your custom metal carport price. It’s very important to consider the weather in your area when choosing steel carport’s roof style.
Before the installation process you need to make sure the site is level, and that you have enough space to assemble the metal carport frame size, you plan to buy. Not only should you measure the width and length of the site where you plan to install the carport, but you should also make sure that the height of the steel carport structure can accommodate your vehicles and equipment.
Depending on your area, local building regulations may require that your metal structure is certified to handle a specific amount of snow load or wind. Contact your local building department to determine if this applies to you before purchasing your new steel carport. If your local government does require certification, contact a Carport Central building specialist for more information.
Now that you’ve determined the size and roof style that would work best for your new structure, it’s time to think about the customizations you would prefer. Below are some options to consider for your new steel carport:
For more detailed information about these features, check out our carport buying guide.
One way to add strength or support is upgrading to 12-gauge steel. The standard steel gauge used for all metal carports is 14-gauge, which measures 2 ½” x 2 ½”. If you would like to upgrade to a carport frame with a higher strength that can better support high snow and wind loads, then a two ¼” x 2 ¼” 12-gauge steel frame would be recommended.
Bows and Trusses are structural supports that fit inside the roof and along the sides of a metal carport to provide extra support and stability. You should consider adding these supports to your custom carport design if you live in an area with heavy snow or other intense weather.
The anchor used during installation will depend on the foundation type in which you plan to anchor the steel carport. If you feel that additional strength or support may be needed, contact one of our friendly building specialists for more information.
The average cost of a metal carport starts at $1200 based on the structure and area of installation. Metal carport prices vary based on sizes, roof styles, and customization options.
All our steel carports include delivery and installation.
Whether your design plans are ready or need some help, you can contact one of our friendly building specialists today to get started. A deposit of anywhere from 10%, to 20% is required when you place an order for your metal carport; the percentage will depend on the unit size and the manufacturer. The remaining balance won't be due until your pre-engineered carport is installed.
Before the scheduled date of your carport building installation, you need to make sure the ground is level, the foundation is set, and the area is cleared of debris. Check out our blog for more information on how to prepare your site for installation
