    2. 12 gauge galvanized steel framing; square measures 2¼" x 2 ¼"
    3. 26 gauge steel Max-Rib panels in 15 different colors.
  5. What if my ground is not level?

    Normal installations allow for the ground to be 3-4 inches out of level. If ground is more than 4" out of level we likely will have to trim the legs to fit the contour of the ground. Carports can typically be assembled if ground is out of level from the highest point to the lowest point 4"-9" with additional fees. To determine leveling fee, see item number 9 above under Fees. Carports will not be assembled if the ground is more than 9" out of level from the highest point to the lowest point.

  6. What can I do if my ground is more than 9" out of level?

    You could do what was done here to custom level a site.

  7. Do you make carports longer than what is on your price list?

    We'll make carports as long as you need.

  8. Do I need a permit?

    You may depending on your local zoning regulations or rural location.

  9. What if I want to enclose the whole carport and make a garage?

    We invite you to view our metal garages.

  10. What if I want to just get a carport now, and later on have installers come back and put sides on to make a garage? Is that possible?

    Yes that is no problem. There would just be an additional return trip fee plus the cost of the options you were having installed at a later date.

  11. How tall does this need to be to cover my motor home?

    The number one mistake people make is they get them too tall for RV's. If you were in the pouring rain with an umbrella in your hand, would you hold the umbrella as high as you could or hold it down close to your head for added protection from the elements?… Even the tallest RV's on the market today are 12'6" tall to the top of the A/C.

  12. Can it be attached to my home/garage/other structure?

    No, we will not attach.

  13. Who installs my carport?

    Factory trained installation teams deliver the materials and assemble the carport immediately upon arrival in your area.

  14. I have other questions or concerns. How can I talk to someone?

    Call our knowledgeable staff toll free at 1-877-942-3745. Mon-Fri (9 A.M. - 5 P.M. EST)

  15. Visit the common law of business page for an interesting viewpoint regarding pricing.

  16. Can you install on a boat dock?

    We will only install on a stationary dock. We will not under any circumstances install a carport on a floating boat dock. Further, we must be able to back a truck and trailer up to the boat dock without carrying materials over 50 feet or up/down steps. Installation on a boat dock will assess additional fees. See item number 9 above for additional fee.

  17. Do you provide rain gutters?

    No, we offer no rain gutters

  18. What width carport is good for 2 cars?

    Most people prefer a carport width of at least 20' wide for 2 cars, although some report that 18' wide is sufficient.

Construction Questions

  1. How is my carport assembled?

  2. Do I need to do any site preparation?

    Remove anything out of the way that would impede the progress of the installation. Clearly mark the four corners of the carport location and level the spot if necessary.

  3. How many braces are included?

    All carports come standard with peak braces and a minimum of 4 corner braces.

  4. What is the difference between 14 and 12 gauge framing?

    Both are galvanized steel. However, the wall thickness of the 12 gauge framing is 3 hundredths of an inch thicker.

  5. What is the roof pitch on my carport?

    1. For regular style carports the roof pitch is approximately 3:12.
    2. For box eave style carports the roof pitch is approximately 4:12.
  6. What is the post spacing?

    1. For 12' to 24' wide carports the post are spaced no more than every 5' apart.
    2. For 26' to 30' wide carports the post are spaced no more than every 3'6".
  7. Can I have a carport installed on a wood floor or deck?

    Yes, carports can be installed on wood surfaces, floors or decks. However, when installed on wood surfaces, floors or decks they cannot maintain the engineer certified wind and snow load ratings. To qualify for the wind and snow load ratings the engineer offers three surfaces to anchor to. The engineer offers the following three choices to mount to and maintain wind and snow load ratings - anchored to the (1) ground/gravel, (2) concrete slabs with footings built to the engineer/county specifications or (3) asphalt. This means that in order for carports to have wind and snow load ratings they cannot be built on retaining walls, concrete retaining walls, wood surfaces, wood decks, wood platforms, concrete platforms, rooftops, etc.

  8. Is the Box Eve style or the Regular style stronger?

    There is no difference in strength.

  9. How long does it take to assemble?

    Carports can take anywhere from 1 - 8 hours to assemble depending on the options that were ordered.

  10. How tall will my gable end be?

    The bottom of the gable end is typically the same height as the legs.

  11. How close can I put this carport to another structure, building or fence?

    There is no hard and fast rule. However, keep in mind that there will have to be enough room for the installers to attach the sheet metal to the sides with their screw guns and set their ladders for taller structures.

  12. If I order a side panel, how far down the side will it go, or how much coverage would I expect?

    Side panels will come down 3' (three feet). So if you order one side panel, you will have three feet of coverage. If you order two side panels, you will have six feet of coverage. Three panels would equal nine feet of coverage.

Anchoring Questions

  1. How is my carport anchored to my concrete slab?

    Holes are drilled into your concrete slab. Then wedge anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail of your carport into the holes in the concrete and securely fastened.

  2. Is a footer required for the installation of a carport?

    The engineer for your state specifies a footer similar to this on the engineering prints. However, some local zoning officials have approved installation of carports on 4" slabs; consult with your local zoning department for clarification to meet local zoning department requirements.

  3. How is my carport anchored to asphalt?

    A small hole is made in your asphalt for helix or mobile home anchors to be inserted into the ground. Then the carport base rails are bolted to the mobile home anchors for a secure hold. Additional fees apply, see question number 9 above.

  4. How is my carport anchored to the ground or dirt?

    Carports with certified wind and snow load ratings are anchored to the ground. We install into the ground next to the base rails of the carport mobile home or helix anchors. Once these anchors are screwed into the ground they are then bolted to the base rail of the carport for a secure hold per the engineers specifications.

  5. How is my carport anchored to a wood deck or other wood surface?

    Lag bolts are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the carport base rails and screwed into the wood surface for a secure hold. Please note however, that carports installed on a wood surface, can no longer be certified for with a wind and snow load rating. We are aware that some customers are quite creative and add anchor bolts and structural reinforcement after we anchor the base rail to the deck although no wind rating can be provided.

  7. Can I have a carport installed on a wood floor or deck?

    Yes, carports can be installed on wood surfaces, floors or decks. However, when installed on wood surfaces, floors or decks they cannot maintain the engineer certified wind and snow load ratings. To qualify for the wind and snow load ratings the engineer offers three surfaces to anchor to. The engineer offers the following three choices to mount to and maintain wind and snow load ratings - anchored to the (1) ground/gravel, (2) concrete slabs with footings built to the engineer/county specifications or (3) asphalt. This means that in order for carports to have wind and snow load ratings they cannot be built on retaining walls, concrete retaining walls, wood surfaces, wood decks, wood platforms, concrete platforms, rooftops, etc.

  8. Is the Box Eve style or the Regular style stronger?

    There is no difference in strength.

    There is no hard and fast rule. However, keep in mind that there will have to be enough room for the installers to attach the sheet metal to the sides with their screw guns and set their ladders for taller structures.

  12. If I order a side panel, how far down the side will it go, or how much coverage would I expect?

    Side panels will come down 3' (three feet). So if you order one side panel, you will have three feet of coverage. If you order two side panels, you will have six feet of coverage. Three panels would equal nine feet of coverage.

Anchoring Questions

  1. How is my carport anchored to my concrete slab?

    Holes are drilled into your concrete slab. Then wedge anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail of your carport into the holes in the concrete and securely fastened.

  2. Is a footer required for the installation of a carport?

    The engineer for your state specifies a footer similar to this on the engineering prints. However, some local zoning officials have approved installation of carports on 4" slabs; consult with your local zoning department for clarification to meet local zoning department requirements.

  3. How is my carport anchored to asphalt?

    A small hole is made in your asphalt for helix or mobile home anchors to be inserted into the ground. Then the carport base rails are bolted to the mobile home anchors for a secure hold. Additional fees apply, see question number 9 above.

  4. How is my carport anchored to the ground or dirt?

    Carports with certified wind and snow load ratings are anchored to the ground. We install into the ground next to the base rails of the carport mobile home or helix anchors. Once these anchors are screwed into the ground they are then bolted to the base rail of the carport for a secure hold per the engineers specifications.

  5. How is my carport anchored to a wood deck or other wood surface?

    Lag bolts are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the carport base rails and screwed into the wood surface for a secure hold. Please note however, that carports installed on a wood surface, can no longer be certified for with a wind and snow load rating. We are aware that some customers are quite creative and add anchor bolts and structural reinforcement after we anchor the base rail to the deck although no wind rating can be provided.

  5. How is my carport anchored to a wood deck or other wood surface?

    Lag bolts are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the carport base rails and screwed into the wood surface for a secure hold. Lag bolts are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the carport base rails and screwed into the wood surface for a secure hold. Please note however, that carports installed on a wood surface, can no longer be certified with a wind and snow load rating. We are aware that some customers are quite creative and add anchor bolts and structural reinforcement after we anchor the base rail to the deck although no wind rating can be provided.

Construction Questions

  1. How is my garage assembled?

  2. Do I need to do any site preparation?

    Remove anything out of the way that would impede the progress of the installation. Clearly mark the four corners of the garage location and level the spot if necessary.

  3. How many braces are included on my garage?

    All garages with 8′ legs or higher come standard with a minimum of 5 peak braces and a brace at every leg where possible.

  4. What is the difference between 14 and 12 gauge framing?

    2. For 26′ to 30′ wide garages the post are spaced no more than every 3′ 6”.
  7. Can I have this installed on a wood floor or deck?

    No, because we would no longer be able to maintain the wind load rating of 140 mph.

  8. How long does it take to assemble?

    Garages can take anywhere from 1 - 2 days to assemble, depending on the options that were ordered and the size of the garage.

  9. How close can I put this garage to another structure, building or fence?

    There is no hard and fast rule. However, keep in mind that there will have to be enough room for the installers to attach the sheet metal to the sides with their screw guns and set their ladders for taller structures.

  10. What leg height should I have on my garage?

    Although, there are exceptions, the rule of thumb is, if the garage doors are to be placed in the end (width) of the garage the leg height must be 1′ taller than the height of the garage door(s). If the garage door is to be placed in the side wall (length) of the garage, the leg height of the garage needs to be 2′ taller than the height of the garage door(s). (i.e. 24′ wide x 40′ long x 9′ leg height with two 9′ wide x 7′ high roll-up doors placed in the 40′ side wall. Result is 2′ higher leg height of garage than the height of the garage door).

  11. What size should I pour the slab?

    Pour slab the same size as your garage footprint. As an example for a 24′ x 40′ garage a slab should be a minimum of 24′ wide x 40′ long.

  12. NOTE: Our garage doors are roll-up steel ‘coil′ type doors

    View a coil type door. They work great but electric garage doors do not work with these. In situations where an electric garage door opener is required we recommend that you let us build the garage door with framed in openings that will accommodate the garage door(s) size of your choice. After your garage is completed you or a local garage door contractor can install a sectional raised panel garage door that an electric garage door opener will work with.

  13. Why is the vertical style roof so highly recommended for a garage?

    A vertical style roof is far superior. Why is it superior? A vertical style roof is far less prone to leak. The roof does not hold water, leaves, pine straw and other debris. It also has a natural ridge vent and a more pleasing appearance. Wherever you buy, insist on the vertical style roof.

Anchoring Questions

  1. How is my garage anchored to my concrete slab?

    Holes are drilled into your concrete slab. Then wedge anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail of your garage into the holes in the concrete and securely fastened.

  2. Should I put anchoring bolts in the slab while I am pouring the slab to make the installation easier? That way they can just put the garage base rails right over my anchor bolts and not have to drill.

    Absolutely not. The base rails are pre-drilled during manufacturing and will never line up where you place your bolts. These structures are engineered to have the bolts at specific locations. Therefore, please allow us to drill our own holes in your existing slab where we need them.

  3. How is my garage anchored to asphalt?

    32" long anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail. A small hole is made in your asphalt and the anchor is driven into the ground with a sledge hammer under the asphalt.

  4. How is my garage anchored to the ground or dirt?

    32" long anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail. The anchors are driven into the ground with a sledge hammer for a secure hold.

The engineer offers the following three choices to mount to and maintain wind and snow load ratings - anchored to the (1) ground/gravel (2) concrete slabs with footings built to the engineer/county specifications or (3) asphalt. This means that in order for garages to have wind and snow load ratings they cannot be built on retaining walls, concrete retaining walls, wood surfaces, wood decks, wood platforms, concrete platforms, rooftops, etc.

If the garage door is to be placed in the side wall (length) of the garage, the leg height of the garage needs to be 2′ taller than the height of the garage door(s). (i.e. 24′ wide x 40′ long x 9′ leg height with two 9′ wide x 7′ high roll-up doors placed in the 40′ side wall. Result is 2′ higher leg height of garage than the height of the garage door).

    A vertical style roof is far superior. Why is it superior? A vertical style roof is far less prone to leak. The roof does not hold water, leaves, pine straw and other debris. It also has a natural ridge vent and a more pleasing appearance. Wherever you buy, insist on the vertical style roof.
