The Boxed Eave style metal carport, (A-frame type), has a more traditional look. On the Boxed Eave style metal carport with the horizontal roof, the roof panels run parallel to the side of the carport.
Certified: 14 gauge 20 PSF/110 MPH*, 12 gauge 30 PSF/120 MPH*
A-style roof matches the roof style of most homes.
The roof metal is installed horizontally so that the ridges of the metal run from the front of the carport to the back. As a result, water will drain off the front or rear of the building, since that's the way the ridges run. During installation, the Boxed Eave style carport will intentionally be installed slightly out-of-level (about an inch, and invisible to the eye) so that the water will drain in the preferred direction.
25 stock sizes available, from 12x2' through 24x4'. Custom sizes also available.
Our buildings are engineered for high wind speeds using the highest quality steel components and have the following certifications*: 110 MPH/20 PSF (wind speed/snow load) on the standard 14 gauge steel frame; 120 MPH/30 PSF on the optional 12 gauge steel frame; 150 MPH/ 65 PSF is also available for an additional charge (*certification requires the building to be properly anchored to a suitable surface).
Leg heights from 6-12' (with center clearances from approx. 8-14')
"Lean-to" style (single pitch) carports also available. Contact us for pricing.
If you live in an area that receives heavy rainfall or snow, we strongly recommend our Vertical Roof model which sheds water and snow more quickly than the Boxed Eave Style.
Standard configuration is 29 gauge roof metal with a 14 gauge tubular steel frame. If you live in an area that receives heavy wind, rain, and/or snow, you might consider upgrading to the stronger 12 gauge steel frame.
Carports to be installed in the southern states come standard with 2' braces on each corner leg, while carports installed in the northern states come standard with braces on EVERY leg. For carports with corner braces only, adding optional braces on every leg is an economical way to add superior wind resistance to your carport.
