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.
The metal carport shown in this picture is a 24x31 metal carport. Carports come standard with 2' center braces and 4' corner braces. This carport has options 4' braces for additional wind and snow strength. The 24x31 carports have 7 tubing bows which are 5' on center. The tubing is 2 1/2" square tubing which is 14 ga. 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.
There are many other sizes smaller and larger than the 24x31 carport size.
Metal garages are also available if you need a fully enclosed carport.
