Alan's Factory Outlet has a wide variety of metal carports for sale. All of the carports come with a 1 year workmanship warranty from the date of installation. When you order a carport online with Alan's Factory Outlet, you have a choice of 3 different roof styles. The 3 different styles are regular, boxed eave and vertical roof steel carports. The regular style carports are the most economical of the 3 roof lines offered for sale online. Carports need to function properly in all weather conditions, so carefully consider your area's climate when you buy a new carport.

The regular style is the only one that comes in a rounded barn shaped roof. The regular style steel looks exactly alike at first glance but with one major difference and that would be how the roof sheeting runs. On the boxed eave carport the 29 ga sheeting runs length wise just like the boxed eave and vertical car ports with the regular style, but on the vertical roof carport the sheeting goes up and down which helps the snow or rain slide off. The vertical carport is the most expensive to purchase but is the strongest of the three carports.

On vertical roof the roof sheeting runs up and down. Designed for rain and snow to slide off of it.

Alan's Factory Outlet makes purchasing your new car port online easy and efficient. When you buy the metal carport online your credit card will only be processed between 10% to 17% deposit after you approve the order on the metal carports. The initial processing fee can be paid with credit card or check. The remaining balance is due after it is built or installed, and can be paid with either credit card or check, whichever is best for you.

The metal carports are delivered and installed for free only to these states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

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.

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 the 12 gauge metal tubing comes with a 20 year rust through warranty.

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 reason the pad size needs to be 1' less on the length is because the listed size includes a 6" front and back end overhang. Make sure you do not have any bolts sticking up out of the concrete. We just need a level flat concrete pad as we will anchor it to the concrete for free and our holes are in different locations.

Estimated Delivery times for the Carports & Metal Garages

7 days to 30 days: 50%
30 days to 60 days: 40%

90 days or more: less than 1%

The estimated delivery time frames are not guaranteed, but approximately 90% of the time the delivery is occurring within 60 days of the order being received by the factory. Please keep in mind that if you are in an area that receives any kind of winter weather, there is a greater chance of this exceeding the 90 day estimate because winter weather can make it difficult to complete an installation.

If your carport or metal garage goes over 90 days we will either offer upon your request a 10% discount off of the balance due once it is installed for the inconvenience or provide a full refund of your deposit if you wish to cancel.

Special Note For Orders Placed After October 1st:

Any installations/deliveries occurring in: DC, IN, MD, NJ, NY, OH & PA, will most likely be delayed until Spring, due to common winter storms in these states.
