The metal carport parts are delivered in several precut sections for example the base rail has sleeves sticking up which than allows the steel post to go on top of them and are secured with screws. The steel roof rafters are put on top of that and than the roof sheeting is attached on the top of the steel carport kit.

Here is a look at the metal carport parts to get a feel for the materials used on the carport kit.
The kits on the steel buildings come in either steel carport kits or steel garage kits. The garages come with a garage door and you can add serveral options such as a walk in door or a window. Need a larger garage door that is also available.
The metal building kits come in 3 different styles

Alan's Factory Outlet Prefabricated Metal Carports
The style of this metal carport is vertical which is made for snow to slide off of it. The only way to attach the roof panels like this is to add cross braces under the roof to attach the roof panels to. These braces make the vertical metal carport the strongest of the prefab metal carports available at Alan's Factory Outlet. At the same time due to the additional labor and materials it does cost a little more than the other two styles available. Here are the prefabricated metal carport prices.
If you plan on putting gutters on the carport the vertical style is the way to go since the rain will slide from side to side instead of end to end.
Configuring your prefabricated metal carport
What size (wide and long) will work best to provide the coverage for the items you plan on parking underneath the carport? This will help you figure out the size width and length of the carport. The prefabricated metal carports come in 12', 18', 20', 22', and 24' wide and the lengths start at 21' long and go in 5' increments longer for example, 26', 31', 36' and 41' with no limit on the length of the carport as it is just a matter of connecting 2 carports end to end. Please keep in mind that anything 36' or longer we recommend going with the vertical style carport because the longest sheeting available is 36' long and if we overlap the sheets this can create an area for leakage or a weak spot on the carport more prone to collapse. The vertical sections are best due to the roof panels being all vertical and going longer than 36' long will not weaken the metal carport.
What will be the tallest item you think you will ever want to have under it? This will help you determine the leg height you need.
You will than decide if you want the carport all open or partially enclosed like the picture of the above carport with just one side closed, both sides closed or you can fully enclose it and turn it into one of the prefab metal garages.

Metal Carports are not just for cars. The metal carports also make a great picnic shelter. Put a grill under it and you have a shaded place for family and friends to gather and catch up new events in their life and make some new memories. Carports also provide a shelter that will keep everyone dry from an evening shower.

A thicker 12 ga 2 1/4" tubing is also available as an upgrade. This 12 ga tubing comes with a 20 year rust through warranty.
Another idea is to use the metal carport during the warm summer months as a picnic shelter and during the winter snowy months you could use the carport to protect your car from getting snow and ice on it. This will save you time and energy in the morning as you won't have to shovel or scrap the snow and ice off your car or cars.

Metal garages are also available if you need a fully enclosed carport.

Carolina Carports metal carports are built in three different styles of carports and metal garages as shown in this picture.
Carolina Carports 3 Roof Styles
- Regular roof style carolina carports start out in the 12x21 size. The base width is exactly 12' wide and the base length is 20' long. It is called 21' long because the 6" front roof overhang and 6" back end overhang is counted in the overall dimensions. The regular style metal carports are built with a traditional barn roof. The regular carport is the most economical of the three carport styles. Here are the carport prices.
- The middle style shown in this picture is the boxed eave metal carport. The boxed eave carolina carports are built in an a-frame roof which is nice if the carport is right beside your home as most homes have an a-frame roof so the carport may go with the architect of your home better. These carports also have the 6" roof overhang however when you get a boxed eave carport you get a 6" overhang on both sides. As far as the price point goes these metal carports are the middle road on price. They are a little bit more than the regular style carports but less than the next style we are getting ready to cover.
- The third carolina carports style is the vertical roof carport. This carport looks just like the boxed eave carport as both are built in an a-frame roof and have a 6" overhang all the way around it. The big difference is the roof is built with the ribs running side to side which allows the rain and snow to slide off it where on the other two style carports the sheeting ribs run lengthwise which causes the snow to stay on their roof. In order to put the roof on this way on the vertical carports we have to place metal cross braces to attach the sheeting. These extra metal braces along with the fact that the snow will slide of the roof make this the strongest of the three carolina carports. The downside for those advantages in strength is the vertical carports are the most expensive of the three carport styles. Vertical carports can be fully enclosed to make a metal garage. Take a look at the metal garage prices.
All of the carolina carports are built with 14 gauge tubing and 29 gauge sheeting. Many options are available such as 12 gauge tubing which comes with a 20 year rust through warranty. All carports come standard with center and corner braces. Carolina carports are anchored to the ground, cement or asphalt with rebar or cement anchors for free. Mobile home anchors for additional wind protection and fully braced carports are a couple of other options you may want to consider.
Carolina carports also has have many other sizes of steel buildings such as triple wide carports and lean to carports.
