MaxSteel Buildings Metal carports are designed to protect cars, trucks, boats, small campers, and other equipment from weather conditions, but they can provide great solutions for a variety of needs. A metal carport can serve as a covered outdoor recreation area, as shaded outdoor workspace, or as open storage. Depending on the site of the carport you need, what you plan to keep under it, and the weather conditions possible in your area, a certified carport may give you the documentation and peace-of-mind needed. If you like the value of a metal carport but need some additional enclosed storage space to keep valuables protected from harsh weather, consider our Carport with Storage Unit.
Although a certified metal carport can be made in smaller sizes, MaxSteel’s 26′-30′ wide structures are automatically certified. They are made with the highest quality, heavy-duty materials and are perfect for storing oversized equipment, multiple vehicles, or even hay, straw or crop yields that need to be protected from harsh weather and high wind load. A certified building is ideal for areas or municipalities that require you to have engineer stamped drawings. They are built to withstand the wind load and snow load of each municipality.
These certified metal structures are available in any length listed and offer wall heights up to 16′. Triple wide metal carports offer wider metal trusses for customers with larger storage needs. Base prices for certified metal carport prices are for frame and roof only (no side panels or other customizations) and include FREE delivery and installation on level land, concrete slab or asphalt (wood foundations cannot be certified). Labor charge may be added for non-level job sites and other issues. Certification is FREE for building widths of 26′ or larger. Customers must supply wind load and snow load requirements to MaxSteel Buildings as certification may vary based on county or state regulations. Note: The frame will be one foot shorter than the roof due to 6″ overhang on each gable end, so a dimension of 26’x31′ has a frame dimension of 26’x30′. Regular roof styles do not have any overhang on the sides while both the boxed eave and vertical roof do have overhang.
And don’t forget, while you may start with a simple metal carport, it can be enclosed to become a metal garage, or expanded with a lean-to to create a workshop or other useful metal building.
