A-frame carports have a roofline that resembles the roofs of most traditional homes that you would find in the US. The horizontal roof has an industrial-inspired design. Because of the way it’s designed, it is occasionally referred to as a “boxed eave” carport. It takes advantage of the roof panels, using them to add strength and support to the structure. By doing that, this construction style uses fewer materials which lowers the purchase price making it more affordable than an A-Frame vertical carport.
