The decision between buying a carport and building a garage often comes down to the financial circumstances of the buyer. As the customization and general level of quality have increased over time, the decision to buy a metal carport instead of a garage has become much easier. In fact, the carports of today can do just about anything a garage can do at a fraction of the cost.
Traditional carport uses include providing protection for cars, snowmobiles, RV’s motorcycles, etc. The knock on metal carports was that they looked like carports but that has changed as these structures can now be constructed to match or complement the home of the buyer.
In areas where severe weather conditions are common, carports can be certified by engineers to ascertain their weight bearing capabilities as well as their ability to withstand high winds. These certifications can give buyers the peace of mind in knowing that their structure will be able to withstand even the harshest weather conditions.
Metal carports offer a wide variety of customization options which can give them all the functionality of a traditional garage with greater flexibility. These carports can be built to incorporate storage, office/work space, play areas, etc. The flexibility comes with the fact that a carport can easily be expanded to offer more space, a feat not easily accomplished with a traditional garage.
The great thing is that a metal carport can offer all these benefits at a much lower cost than a traditional garage. Combine that with a much faster installation and buying a metal carport makes a lot of sense.
We offer a 1 year manufacturers/workmanship warranty unlike the competitor's 30 day warranty. A 20 year wind warranty unlike competitors who don't offer any wind warranty. Up to a 20 year frame rust warranty with 12 gauge steel.
The spikes are installed for "Free" with any carport we sell. They do not have a high wind rating. They will be installed into the base rail of the carport system you purchase.
High wind anchors are $25 each and are recommended for installation on anything that is anchored into the ground. These would be installed in lieu of the spike anchors. High wind anchors are anchored about 30-32" into the ground. They have a wind rating of up to 110 mph straight winds. You can also go with concrete anchors for "Free" if you are installing on a concrete foundation. Concrete anchors are anchored 3" into the concrete and have the same wind ratings as the high wind anchors.
This customer elected to only anchor with the "free" spikes and not anchor their garage with the high wind anchors as recommended by the manufacturer. Now they regret their decision!
Advantages of Steel Carports
Advances in the design of steel carports have led an increasing number of people to choose them over traditional garages. These advances can either equal the benefits presented by traditional garages or exceed them.
Here is a list advantages that are now present as a result of the advances in steel carport construction:
* Cost – Steel carports provide a solution that costs a fraction of what a traditional garage addition would run whether the carport is installed professionally or as a do it yourself project. The lower cost can actually turn the purchase of a steel carport into an investment that adds to the value of the property.
* Variations in style and appearance – Design advances in manufacturing now allow for build to order customized steel garages in a wide variety of colors, styles, and finishes. These options mean that a steel garage can now be built to match the home or other buildings.
* Strength with low maintenance – A steel carport delivers strength and durability over the long term without the need for maintenance. A steel carport won’t suffer from expansion/contraction, termites, dry rot and a host of other issues that face wooden structures.
* Light weight components – Steel has one of the highest strength to weight ratios of any construction material. The light weight of a carport’s can make assembly easier and open the possibility of saving money by doing it yourself.
These factors give steel carports many advantages over traditional garages and should definitely be considered when deciding on adding a structure of this type.
Three Different Roof Styles:
Regular Style Carports
Regular Style Units have rounded corners and are considered the "basic" of carport designs. Acting as a founding product for all other designs, the regular style unit is typically the most economical and affordable carport but also offers the most clearance in the center.
A-Frame Style Carports
Boxed Eve units are designed with an "A" frame roof truss and horizontal roof panels. This modern design breaks away from the "basic" carport design, and has made this style unit one of the most popular available. An upgrade to Boxed Eve style is both stylish and affordable.
A-Frame Vertical Style Carports
Vertical Roof units are designed with an "A" frame roof truss and vertical roof panels. Hat channel runs the length of the unit to cross brace the roof and provide a mounting point for the roof panels. This design helps to prevent weathering elements such as rain and snow from "standing" on your building. Vertical Roof units come standard with ridge cap and specially designed wider trim that give the product a modern, finished appearance.
All Steel Carports is a proud member of the B.B.B. with an A+ rating.
Commercial Grade Clear Span Buildings
All of our commercial grade clear span buildings come standard with vertical roofs. They also have optional vertical siding and ends. We offer them in both a 14 or 12 gauge framing.

The specific prices for car ports, garages, barns, recreational vehicle covers include anchoring, shipping and installation on your level site within our normal service area. Keep in mind, we do our absolute best to keep the prices that are contained in the pages of our website current and the best in your area. In some instances, you may find a company who is quoting a cheaper price, please get a detailed description of the building they are quoting you in writing and we can usually meet or beat the price. Usually in these cases, the structure was quoted without features that are recommended to design a building that is going to last. This is why we require a written quote to be able to compare prices and design to make sure we are comparing apples to apples.
2. The second most frequently asked question about the installation of your Structure, "How long before my Carport or Metal Building is installed?" Usually installed in 2-4 weeks, but can be as quick as 1 week or in remote areas up to 8 weeks. What makes us different from the competition is our years of experience. We know who will best service your area for delivery, price, and warranty.
3. Can I have my Carport, Garage, or RV Cover built to a custom size in width and length? I don't see the size I need! Yes. For example, you may need a carport or building that is 11' wide x 24' long. We will make it that size. To determine the cost it would be the exact same cost as the next larger standard size unit. So, for this example a 11’ wide x 24’ long would be the same cost as a 12' wide x 26' long structure. This example would apply in every circumstance.
4. Does a color choice add to the cost of my Carport, Garage, or RV port? What do you have to choose from? No, you may choose any of our 13 different colors. You may choose one color for the roof, a different color for the trim, a different color for the sides and if a gable end is desired a different color for it at no additional charge. You may also choose to make all of the colors the same on your structure; it's your choice.
5. Can I buy the materials or kit and assemble it myself? Yes, in some cases. Deduct 5% from the prices. All materials will be delivered to your home. You cannot pick up materials under any circumstances. No assembly instructions are provided. There is no warranty on Do it yourself kits and 5% is not that signification of a savings when you consider your time and effort. This option is not recommended.
6. Do I have to pay sales tax for my RV Shed, Car Canopy or Garage / Workshop? Yes, Tax is determined by your local area City and/or County and State. We only collect tax. We do not charge it. If you are purchasing for the federal government, state government, have a farm or agricultural exemption or have a sales tax exemption number and are willing to sign a sales tax exemption form you can eliminate the tax on your purchase. You will need to provide proper documentation when purchasing.

9. 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. Carports will not be assembled if the ground is more than 9" out of level from the highest point to the lowest point. Garages will need to be on a level surface to seal up properly.
10. What can I do if my ground is more than 9" out of level? You can always dig out or use blocks, timbers or piers to level up the base rail.
11. Do I need a permit? You may, depending on your local zoning regulations. It is up to you to determine and obtain any permits. We do not require that your have one. Please inform us if you will be pulling a permit or if inspections are necessary. We will need to price the carport, garage or RV cover to match your local requirements and in most cases will add an additional cost to the standard price. We also offer some units that are engineered and certified for your area at no additional cost, ask you salesperson for details.
13. What if I want to enclose the whole carport and make an RV garage or auto garage? We can build partially enclosed or fully enclosed structures. See below for questions that pertain to garages, workshops, barns, combo buildings and such.
14. 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. Keep in mind when doing this you will need to plan for the future when it comes to height of the building to accommodate doors.
15. How tall does this need to be to cover my motor home or camper? 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. It is up to you to tell us the height that you require but we know that in all cases your travel trailer or 5th wheel will fit under our tallest unit with 12’ legs. All carports have two heights to consider; the leg height and the peak height. We specialize in RV Covers, give us a call and we can help you determine the length of the legs to best suit your needs.
16. Can it be attached to my home/garage/other structure? No, we do not attach the units to any existing structures. With that being said, it is possible to be attached, but this is something you will have to do yourself.
17. Who installs my structure? Factory trained installation teams deliver the materials and assemble the structure immediately upon arrival in your area.
19. 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. Keep this in mind when ordering that your basic parking lot strips are 9’ feet apart.
20. What width garage is good for 2 cars? Most people prefer a garage width of at least 22' wide for 2 cars, although some report that 20' wide is sufficient.
21. 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 buildings location and level the spot if necessary.
22. How many braces are included? All carports come standard with peak braces and a minimum of 4 corner braces. In some states, units come standard with braces on all legs. Some locations will require leg braces on all bows in which case they are standard in these situations.
It is recommended that on all structures 8’ tall and higher that braces be installed on all legs, 10’ and taller requiring 3’ or longer.
23. 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 and in most cases only required when heavy snow loads are encountered or taller legs are installed in high wind zones.
24. What is the roof pitch on my carport? Most box eve styles, the roof pitch is approximately 4:12. Most regular style, the roof pitch is approximately 3:12.
25. What is the post spacing? For 12' to 24' wide carports the post are spaced no more than every 5' apart and in some locations 4’ apart. For 26' to 30' wide carports the post are spaced no more than every 4’ in most cases they are 3’ 6”.
26. Can I have this installed on a wood floor or deck? Yes. You will be required to facilitate the mounting of the unit to the substrate by providing fastening materials like bolts and screws in such cases.
27. Is the Box Eve style or the Regular style stronger? There is no difference in strength.
28. How long does it take to assemble? Carports and RV Covers can take anywhere from 1 - 8 hours to assemble depending on the options that were ordered. Garages, Horse Barns, and Industrial Sized Buildings can take up to 2 days but most in 1 – 8 hours depending on size and options.
29. How tall will my gable end be? The bottom of the gable end is typically the same height as the legs.
30. How close can I put this Carport, Garage, Horse Barn, and Motor Home Cover 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.
31. 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.
32. How is my Carport, Garage, RV Cover 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 for a secure hold.
33. How is my Carport, Garage, RV Cover 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 sledgehammer under the asphalt.
34. How is my Carport, Garage, RV Cover 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 sledgehammer for a secure hold.
35. 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 down into the wood surface for a secure hold.
36. Can I have the garage built now on the ground and then pour concrete inside later? Yes, that is possible but certainly is not recommended. You turn out with a much better floor finish and appearance if the floor is poured ahead of time.
37. 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 gable end (width) of the garage the leg height should be 1’ taller than the height of the garage door(s) but not in all cases depending on how close the doors will be to the sidewalls. If the garage door is to be placed in the sidewall (length) of the garage, the leg height of the garage must be 1’ taller than the height of the garage door(s). (i.e. 24' wide x 40' long x 8' leg height with two 9' wide x 7' high roll-up doors placed in the 40' side wall. Result is 1' longer leg height of garage than the height of the garage door).
38. What size should I pour the slab? Pour slab 3/4" wider in width and the same length is recommended but we leave this up to you and your concrete contractor. As an example for a 24' x 40' garage a slab should be a minimum of 24' 3/4" x 40' long.
39. 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.
40. NOTE: Our garage doors are roll-up steel 'coil' type doors. They work great but electric garage door openers 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. In Oklahoma Arkansas and Kansas we can assist you in the garage door installation.
41. What type of roofs do you offer on your Garages and Carports type covers? All of our carports and garages are quoted 3 ways 1.) Standard Style (Rounded over look) 2.) Box Eve Style (A-frame Look) and 3.) Vertical Roof, which is far superior to all, 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. Consider the vertical style roof as your best choice, even though the standard and box eve styles work well depending on your particular use and budget.
42. What are the financial terms to purchase? 10-15% deposit usually paid with a credit card or check is required. Balance due after your carport is installed. Purchase order is acceptable with approval.
43. Is financing available? Yes, With approved credit. Call 405-344-SHED (7433) for details.
44. How do I order? Give us a call at 405-344-SHED (7433) and we can place your order over the phone.
45. What happens after I place an order? Once we receive your signed invoice, the scheduling department will contact you approximately 2-6 days prior to installation. We will not just show up to install your carport. You will get a call to schedule the installation.
