Alan's Factory Outlet metal carports and metal garages are built different in District of Columbia, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania such as the metal frame tubing 4' on center due to the heavy snow in these northern states. In these states certified package comes with 105mph and 35psf and you can upgrade for an additional cost to certified for 105mph and 65psf for IN, OH, PA, MD, NJ, NY and DC.
One other state that has different prices on the steel buildings is in Florida because all the structures in FL are required to be built certified for 150 mph with an option to upgrade to 180 mph.
The difference between the boxed eave and vertical roof style is the metal sheeting on the vertical roof is up and down which helps snow or rain slide off of the roof. The vertical style is the strongest style and we strongly recommend the vertical style on any carports 41' long because the longest roof paneling we have is a 36' long section.
If you're ordering a new car port online, please keep in mind the steel carports are only delivered and installed in AL, AR, GA, IL, KS, KY, LA, MS, MO, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA and WV.
One of the benefits of ordering your carport online with Alan's Factory Outlet is that you can customize your carport to meet your needs. In fact, the carports at Alan's Factory Outlet are custom built in the style, size and color you want. The leg heights on them can be made taller in 1' increments to fit a wide variety of items such as an RV, motor home, tractor, tractor trailer, cars, trucks, farm equipment and a boat to name a few.
Before you purchase, browse carport color options online. Carports can enhance your property's attractiveness so make the most of your color choices. The 13 different colors available apply to the roof and the trim which is on the end along the roof line. If you close the sides you also get to pick the color for the sides. All of the metal sheeting comes in 29 ga and has a baked enamel finish.
You can put down either a level gravel pad or a concrete pad. If you are putting down a gravel pad we recommend making the gravel pad 2' longer and 2' wider than the size you order. If you are putting down a concrete pad here is a list of the recommended concrete pad size for each size carport or metal garage.
The tubing on the carports come standard in 14 ga 2 1/2" square tubing. You can always upgrade to a thicker 12 ga tubing which is sized at 2 1/4" square tubing. The framing on both the 14 gauge and 12 gauge metal tubing comes with a 20 year rust through warranty.
