|What are the names of the parts used to create my carport?
The illustration above shows all the parts that go into creating a vertical roof carport. These components are the same for regular
style carports and for boxed eve style carports with the exception of the hat channel.
What materials are used to make the structures?
The majority of components utilized in our frames are made of 2 1/4" by 2 1/4" galvanized steel tubing for 12 gauge buildings and 2
1/2" by 2 1/2" for 14 gauge buildings.
What are the frame dimensions for my carport/garage?
The exact dimensions of the frame are as follows:
If the carport is a 12'x21', the frame will be 12' outside to outside of the frame, and the length will be 20' end to end. If an 18'x31', the
width will be 18' outside to outside, length 30' end to end and so forth. The extra foot of length comes from the standard 6" of roof
overhang on each end of the structure.
What methods are used to anchor the carport and garages?
There are three anchoring types. If the structure were to be mounted to a concrete pad or footing, then traditional concrete wedge
anchors would be used. We offer a 30 inch rebar anchor that is intended for use when a structure is mounted directly to dirt or
gravel surface. On our certified buildings, a helical mobile home anchor is used. On non-certified structures, these can be
purchased as an optional item.
How long does it take from the time I place my order until the time the building is installed? Local Area - 5 - 15
The majority of our installations are completed in 2-4 weeks! However some areas could possibly take up to 8-10 weeks depending
on factors such as weather, work load, etc...
What preparation should be completed before my building is installed?
Insure that the site designated for product installation is a flat and square surface. In order to provide you with affordable products,
with quick installation, site preparation, as well as building permits, are the responsibility of the customer. The customer is
responsible for any local permits, covenant searches, rights of way, set-back restrictions, etc.
Why should I consider a vertical roof versus a horizontal roof in my metal building?
As displayed on our carport and garage sections of the website, the ridges of the steel panels in a horizontal roof run parallel to the
sides and ridge of the carport or garage. Water, snow, etc., will drain to the front and back of the building, towards the door
openings. If the building is perfectly level, water will ten to pond on a horizontally installed roof. On a vertical roof, the ridges of the
steel panels run from the top of the carport or garage to the sides. This roof configuration displaces water, snow, etc., much more
efficiently and water will not pond on the roof. Water will also drain away from the door openings (unless the doors are installed on
the sides of the carports or garages).
What are the on center spacing of the frame legs/bows?
As a general rule, the spacing of the frame legs/bows are 4 feet or 5 feet on center.
What is the height in the center of the building if I order a certain height leg?
The chart below will allow you to calculate this measurement. For example, if the carport / garage is a Standard Style
Double unit, 20 feet wide with 7 feet legs, add 3' 0" to the 7 feet leg height for a total height of 10'.
Standard Style Double
Boxed Eave / Vertical Roof
12' 2' 6" 2' 0"
18' 3' 0" 2' 6"
20' 3' 0" 2' 6"
22' 3' 3" 2' 9"
24' 3' 6" 3' 0"
26' 4' 0" 3' 6"
28' 4' 3" 3' 9"
30' 4' 6" 4' 0"
If installing a garage door what leg height would I need?
If installing garage door centered on the end (width of building) the leg height can be the same height as the garage door. If
installing two garage doors on the end (depending on width of building) the legs need to be 1 foot taller than the doors. If installing a
garage door on the side (length of building) the legs need to be I foot taller than the door
