Our Metal Carports Styles
At AA Metal Buildings, we are proud to offer a wide array of different carport options to suit any need. These carports come in an extensive variety of sizes and feature tons of customization potential. You can easily change the dimensions, add framing reinforcements, and even pick roofing styles!
Now having such a wide array of options available to you might seem a bit overwhelming. After all, it’s important for you to find the right building type for your needs. To help make the process a little more straightforward, we’ve put together some of our most popular carport types:
- Regular Roof Carports
A regular roof carport has that ‘classic’ carport shape, with rounded roof corners and horizontal paneling. These carports are one of our most affordable styles but are designed to hold up well against the weather in most regions. However, if you live in an area with severe weather, you may want a heartier roof style.
- A-Frame Roof Carports
A step up from the regular roof option, these carports have roofs that closely resemble traditional house roofs, with horizontally placed panels, and a sharp roof peak. This roofing style offers quite a bit more protection from heavy winds but doesn’t stand up as well for areas that experience a lot of rain. If your location regularly sees high winds and torrential rainfall, you want a vertical roof.
- Vertical Roof Carports
Our strongest and most durable option, this roof features the advantages of an A-frame roof, except that its vertically placed paneling. This vertical paneling is a clever design that allows debris and snow to easily fall away from your structure, saving you tons of time and money in maintenance costs. This roofing option is the highest tier and holds up well under just about any amount of stress.
- One-Car Carports
A one-car carport is designed to comfortably house a single vehicle. It’s a great economical choice to protect your new family vehicle.
- Two-Car Carports
Larger in size compared to our single-car models, this carport is ready to protect two vehicles from the elements.
- Three-Car Carports
Even bigger, a three-car carport offers plenty of storage space. Easily house several automobiles or keep heavy equipment like mowers and tractors safe and dry. The options are endless!
- RV Carports
When you need a carport, but bigger in just about every way. These carports are designed broader and taller than traditional models, offering plenty of room for larger recreational vehicles. This is a perfect choice to keep your RV safe during the winter off-season!
- Boat Carports
They say the two best days of a boat owner’s life are the day he buys it and sells it. But not anymore! With a boat carport, you can rest easy knowing your boat or watercraft is safe from moisture damage, dry rot, and decay.
- Motorhome Carports
These carports are no joke! Built big enough to house your motorhome, RV, or bus, this carport is capable of handling just about anything you can throw at it.
Metal Carports by Size
There are tons of different building sizes out there! So many that it can be hard to focus on your needs. However, using our state-of-the-art 3D Building Estimator, you can easily design a carport to almost any size and adapt it to fit all your requirements. To give you an idea of some of the sizes we offer, we’ve detailed a few of our most popular building size ranges.
- 12’-24 Wide Carports
These carport sizes are great for protecting your cars, trucks, and automobiles from UV rays, high winds, heavy rain, and snowfall. They are large enough to comfortably house one or two vehicles while still offering ample room for extra storage space.
- 26′-30′ Wide Carports
If you feel like you’re on the right track, but you just need more room, buildings ranging from 26’ wide to 30’ wide might be more your size. These structures can easily hold larger vehicles while still providing a ton of extra space for storage.
Why You Need a Carport
If you’ve been kicking around the idea of purchasing a carport, you’re not alone! It’s a significant investment, but one that will serve you well for years. And since there’s no shortage of reasons to own a carport, let’s narrow it down to a few:
Harsh rays from the sun conspire daily to fade, crack and peel the paint on your important vehicles. And automobiles are a big investment in their own right, so why not take steps to keep them looking pristine?
In addition to direct sunlight damaging your property, the extreme midday heat in many regions is enough to bake most things into oblivion. By purchasing a metal carport, you can relax knowing your valuables are sitting in the cool shade.
In most regions of the US, the weather is a significant threat. Heavy winds, torrential rains, and more can cause untold amounts of damage. Steel buildings are your best form of defense against Mother Nature.
Carports Aren’t Just for Vehicles Anymore
It shouldn’t surprise you that metal carports from AA Metal Buildings are highly adaptable. These structures can be built to almost any size and composition. They can include paneling, windows, doors, and much more. These carports can even function well as:
- Picnic Shelters
Playgrounds and picnic areas are an everyday staple in many communities. And a perfect way to protect these areas from harsh sun and rain is by covering them with a carport. With a carport, you can easily hold family gatherings, reunions, and more without having to worry about the weather.
- Patio Covers
Our carports make excellent patio covers. These structures can be custom-built and attached to an already present building such as your home or garage.
- Driveway Cover
Even if you don’t intend to store any vehicles, these carports make an excellent cover for your driveway or home.
Advantages of Investing in Metal Carports
We could go on for days about the different advantages of owning a metal carport. They’re virtually endless, after all. But let’s take a deeper look at some of the most significant advantages of choosing a metal carport from AA Metal Buildings:
- Protection from the Elements
Winds, heavy rains, and even deep snows are common threats. But with a metal carport, you can rest easy knowing your vehicles will be protected from rain or snow.
- Comfort In and Outside of Your Car
Whether you’re completing repairs on your vehicle or you simply want to avoid a sudden downpour of rain getting in and out of your car, a carport is a perfect solution.
- Tremendous Value
You just can’t beat our metal building prices! Compared to wooden buildings, steel structures can’t be beaten in terms of affordability. Some metal structures can be built nearly 50% cheaper than similar-sized wooden alternatives!
- Minimal Maintenance
Unlike wood, our metal carports are engineered from galvanized steel, making them virtually impervious to moisture, rust, and pests. Your building will last years with very little need for repairs or upkeep.
- Going Green
Did you know that steel buildings are entirely recyclable? Steel is far more eco-friendly than other construction options like wood. It’s more easily sourced and can be melted down and used again and again.
