Certified & Uncertified Metal Carports – What’s the Difference?
Some areas may require that your metal carport meet local building code. Sometimes, this means that your building must be certified. A certified metal carport—a certified metal building in general, in fact—means that the metal building can withstand certain wind, rain, snow, and other pressures and weights—thereby making it certifiable. If you live in an area with a substantial amount of snow, wind, rain, or other inclement weather, it’s quite possible you’ll be required to purchase a certified metal building.
Alternatively, a non-certified metal building means that, though it’s a strong and stable metal building, it does not need to meet certain requirements or pressure loads.
Even if it is not required, you may wish to opt for a certified steel carport. Doing so gives your building stronger framing, improved anchors, and other upgrades to improve its overall durability and strength.
