It Starts with Sizing
There are many factors that influence the price of metal carports, none quite so obvious as size. The correlation between size and price is simple—as the building size increases, so does the cost.
There are several standard sizes of steel carports available, starting at 12’ by 21’ and increasing to 70’ by 101’ (and beyond, depending on location). In other words, there is a prefab metal carport for your specific size and budget!
A Wide Range of Options
One of the main appeals of metal carports is the impressive array of options available. The price of your carport will reflect the type of carport you select, so it’s important to know your options and how they may influence the price. We’ve listed some key options below and recommend calling Steel Building Empire for more information regarding your specific needs and applications.
- Regular Style Carports – Prefab steel carports come with three different roof styles, own with their advantages. The most affordable roof design is the regular roof. By reducing waste and improving efficiency both in production and installation, the prices of these roofs are kept low. They are ideal for budget-conscious buyers living in temperate climates.
- A-Frame Horizontal Carports – Additional framing, bracing, and eaves differentiate A-frame horizontal carports from their regular roof counterparts. These additions make this style slightly more expensive, but also more suitable for inclement weather.
- A-Frame Vertical Carports – The strongest roof design available is the vertical roof, which replaces the horizontal roof panels of the other two options with vertical ones. This style also has the highest weight-bearing capacity, making it perfect for areas with harsh climates.
- RV and Camper Covers – For those with large recreational vehicles, an RV or camper cover is likely the best option. Thanks to the customizable sizes of steel carports, they can be made to house just about any size recreational vehicle.
- Boat Carports and Shelters – Prized possessions that are used seasonally need a home for the remainder of the year. Boat carports are perfect for protecting water vessels from the elements, providing a functional space to perform maintenance and repairs, and other store and tinker with your boat!
