The A-Frame carport is sometimes known as a ‘boxed eve’ carport. It is a metal structure built in the same design as a traditional American house. Coast To Coast Carports offers the A-frame carport with a horizontal or vertical roof. The more economical horizontal roof utilizes the strength of the metal roof panels in its industrial design. This reduces materials required for the structure. Find out more about the products from Coast To Coast Carports today. We can get you the A-frame carport you want, at a price you can afford. See below for more details about our great A-frame, horizontal-roof carports.
A-Frame horizontal carports are available in both 12 and 14-gauge steel framing. The 12-gauge steel is the stronger and sturdier option. It also comes with a 20-year rust-through warranty. Do you need a stronger building? We can add extra braces, bows, and anchors. We can also make sure your building is certified. This ensures that you’ll meet building codes and regulations. It also makes for a stronger building overall. Find out more about the certification process and how we can help you with it.
Coast To Coast Carports can certify carports to meet wind and snow load requirements almost anywhere. Certifying a carport adds all the necessary bows and braces. It requires stronger anchors. This allow your structure to meet wind loads of over 90 miles per hour and snow loads starting at 20 and up to 90 pounds per square feet. Higher certifications are also available. Talk to a Coast To Coast Carports representative or authorized dealer for more details.

Gabled ends are the top of an end that fills the triangular space formed between the tops of the legs and the peak of the building. A gabled end reduces the clearance height. It also adds more support while making the steel building look more refined. Gabled ends can be added to the front, back, or both ends of a metal carport. These additions can improve the strength and look of your structure. Find out if gabled ends are right for your carport.
When determining the clearance of an A-frame horizontal building, you will start with your leg height. The roof has a standard pitch of 3/12. That means that for every 12 feet of width, the roof will rise 3 feet. To make math easier, that is the same as a ¼ pitch. For every 4 feet over, go up one foot. From the top of the legs to the point at which the roof begins to slope is about six inches on the A-frame carports. Let’s look at an 18 foot wide A-frame carport with a leg height of 6 feet. You will calculate the clearance with the following formula. First, take the leg height of 6 feet and add the 6 inches to the roof where it starts to slope. Now you’re at 6 feet, 6 inches. Next, you will move toward the peak (or center of the building). Count 4 feet in, then move up 1 foot. This brings you 4 feet inward. You have a clearance of 7 feet, 6 inches. Do this until you reach the peak of the building. In this case, it is 9 feet from a leg to the peak. That means the rise will be 2 feet, 4 inches, plus the original 6 inches from the leg, plus the leg height. In total, the peak will have a clearance of about 8 feet, 10 inches. However, you must take the top brace into account, which will lower your peak by a few inches. It might seem complicated, but you can also talk to one of the experts at Coast To Coast Carports for help.
Every carport from Coast To Coast Carports comes with free delivery and installation. We offer this whether it is on ground or cement. When a carport is being installed on cement, it will come with cement anchor bolts. These are pounded into a drilled hole and then bolted to the base rail of the carport. When a carport is being installed on the ground, it is the responsibility of the customer to level the ground and contact the ‘call before you dig’ people. Carports on the ground are installed with the standard pin anchors. The pin anchors are classified as temporary. It’s recommended that buyers upgrade to stronger anchors if wind or snow conditions are a threat. The pin anchor is a 3-foot rebar anchor with a nail head top. The anchor is pounded into the ground through the base rail of the carport.
