Metal Carport Kits
The average number of cars per household in the US comes to about 1.88. That's nearly two cars per family! And with vehicles being such a huge investment, it's no surprise why many folkswant to keep them protected. Every day, harsh UV rays, rain, and dust conspire to ruin clear coats, wear out rubber and plastic components, and shorten the life of your ride.
One of the most cost-efficient ways of protecting your vehicles from these elemental hazards is with a metal carport. But typically, when you order one of thesestructures, professional metal carport installation is part of the process. But with a metal carport kit, you’ll handle the construction of the building yourself.
If you have a background in engineering or construction, choosing a metal carport kit can save you time, money, and hassle. Let’s take a closer look at what these versatile buildings have to offer.

What You Receive in a Metal Carport Kit
When you purchase a carport kit, you'll receive all the components of a traditional metal carport.Essentially, you'll have everything you need to break ground on your new structure. The parts included are:
This will be the backbone of your entire structure. The steel framing will include support columns, trusses, and additional hardware.
Your roofing panels are one of the most important parts of any carport. These will arrive pressed and cut to size for your build.
If the framing is the backbone of steel carports, the wall paneling will be its skin. Much like roofing panels, these components will also arrive ready for assembly.
Fasteners and Hardware
No one wants to spend all day searching through their tool shed to find the correct fasteners, bolts, and components to complete a job. And luckily, you won’t have to, since we will deliver it all to you!
Anchors are the components that will connect your building to its foundation. Depending on your chosen foundation type, these anchors can vary.
You’ll also receive any additional components that you’ve added to your metal carport during its design phase.
The Many Types and Styles of Metal Carport Kits
Believe it or not, a metal carport isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of structure. In fact, they come in many different styles, iterations, and size options. First off, let’s take a look at the roofing options you’ll find on these structures:
Regular Roof Carports
A regular roof is your traditional carport roof, with rounded cornersand horizontally placed paneling. It’s a great go-to option if you live in a region with mild weather conditions.
A-Frame Roof Carports
Also known as a boxed-eave carport, a-frames will look more like the roof you’d find on a residential home. They have overhanging awnings, a sharper roof pitch, and horizontal panels, making them far more effective at handling high winds.
Vertical Roof Carports
A vertical roof is prized as the cream of the crop in terms of weather resistance, thanks to its vertically oriented paneling that allows leaves, rain, snow, and debris to slide harmlessly away from your roof.
When you purchase any of the below types of metal carports, you'll be able to choose the roofing type that works best for your region and needs.
A one-car carport is a carport designed to specifically accommodate a single small or medium-sized vehicle. They're an excellent option for those who want to keep their new car safe, dry, and pristine.
A bit larger, this metal carport is designed to comfortably house two small or medium vehicles while still providing enough room to move around.
As you may have guessed, a three-car carport is a vehicle cover engineered to protect up to three standard-sized vehicles. They're a great, cost-effective option for families that own multiple vehicles.
Metal RV carports are a bit taller and larger than other standard carports to accommodate large recreational vehicles, buses, and motorhomes. They're a fantastic way to keep your RV in good shape during winter.
Boat carports are perfect for those that own various types of watercraft. From boats to jet skis, keeping them in good condition year-round can be expensive. But with a boat carport, protecting them is easy and cost-effective!
Sometimes it's valuables and equipment you want to keep out of the rain. And now you can do just that with a utility carport! Some styles can even be customized with walls and doors!
Customize a Metal Carport Kit to Meet Your Needs
One of the things that genuinely sets metal construction apart from the competition is its customizability. From top to bottom, you can alter and change almost every aspect of your metal carport kit. We've detailed just a few of these customization options below.
When you purchase a metal carport kit, you’ll have free rein to pick between over 15 colors, including:
- Pebble Beige
- Bright Red
- Royal Blue
- Burnished Slate
- Earth Brown
- Slate Blue
- Barn Red
- Quaker Gray
- Pewter Gray
You’ll also be able to choose how wide, long, and tall you’d like your new carport to be. This is a perfect solution for those that need a particular sized building for their needs.
While a carport won’t have doors, when you purchase an enclosed metal building, you’ll be able to add as many entryways and garage doors as you want!
An open carport won't need windows, but windows are a great way to let in natural light for enclosed structures.
The anchor type used for your structure will depend entirely on your chosen foundation. Soil and gravel foundations use auger-like mobile home anchors, while asphalt foundations will require spiked rods. Concrete foundations, however, will require specialized bolts driven directly into the pad.
Framing and Paneling Gauges
For most residential structures, 14-gauge framing and 29-gauge paneling are the industrial standards. However, if you live in a region with high winds or heavy snowfall, you may want to opt for our thicker 12-gauge frames and 26-gauge paneling.
