A-Frame Horizontal Carports

A-Frame Horizontal

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.

You have two construction options to choose from for an A-Frame Horizontal carport.

  • A 12-gauge steel frame (can be an upgrade)
  • A 14 gauge steel frame

Certification (an Extra Option)

The 12-gauge steel frame is stronger and sturdier, and you get a 20-year rust-through warranty included with your purchase.
We can get the your steel carport certified, and by doing so, you’ll have the assurance that your carport complies with your local building code requirements. Certification is the equivalent of a stamp of approval that ensures that your carport complies with the state and local snow load and wind ordinances. Without this you could face a fine depending on your local ordinances where you live.
Once certified, your carport can withstand wind speeds of more than 90 mph, and it can support snow loads from 20 pounds per square foot to 90 pounds per square foot. Certified carports include extra bows and braces and come with stronger anchors to ensure that the structure is stable after installation.

A Variety of Options and Extra Features

  • Insulating the Roof
  • Gabled Ends (Gables reduce the clearance height, but the feature gives the roofline a more sophisticated and elegant look. The gabled ends will increase the overall strength of your carport, too.)
  • Extra Roof Panels
  • Extra Braces
  • Extra Bows and Legs
  • Height Extensions
  • Concrete or Mobile Home Anchors
  • Concrete Ground Supports (Optional)
  • Pitch Adjustment Above the Standard 3/12

Free Delivery and Installation

We offer free delivery and installation, but you’ll have to prepare the ground at the installation site before we deliver your new steel building and prepare to install it. You’ll need to ensure that the ground is flat and level.
