How Much Does a Metal Carport Cost?

The metal carport cost will vary depending on the size and style.  So when someone asks, "How much does a metal carport cost?"  There are three main questions that need to be answered to get an accurate idea on the metal carport cost for each person based on their needs.

3 Metal Carport Cost Factors

  1. The size of the metal carport you buy will effect the carport cost more than anything else.  Of course you don't want to go with a carport to large for what you plan on using it for but you may want to also look into the future and is there a chance that you may get a larger vehicle, boat, motorhome or an extra vehicle or farm equipment.  The same point holds true for making sure the metal carport will properly cover your items.  You will want to first figure out how wide you need the carport to be.  Alan's Factory Outlet metal carports start out at 12' wide.  The other widths available are 18', 20', 22', 24', 26', 28', 30', 32', 34', 36', 38' and 40' wide.  After you get a feel for the width you need you will want to decide on the length.  The shortest length is 21' long followed by 26', 31', 36', 41', 46', 51', 56' and 61'.  You can actually go longer than 61' feet if you need to but the sizes run in 5' increments longer.  The last size configuration you will need to make is the leg height.  The leg heights start out at 5' or 6' height depending on the metal carport style.  You can make the carport taller in 1' increments with up to 12' legs.  One thing to look at is the peak of the carport is going to be taller than the leg height you choose.  So the width, length and height will all help you start to get a picture of how much the metal carport will cost, but without the next two questions answered the exact price will still be unknown.
  2. What style carport you pick will help you find out the metal carport cost.  Alan's Factory Outlet has three different styles of carports.  The styles are regular, boxed eave and vertical style.  The regular style is going to be the metal carport that cost the least amount of money.  The boxed eave and vertical style look the exact same except the roof on the vertical carport is up and down which will allow snow to slide off the roof.  The vertical carport will cost the most but it is definitely the strongest of the three carports.metal carport cost prices
  3. The last thing that will determine the metal carport cost is options.  There are several options such as a thicker 12 ga tubing which gives you a 20 year rust through warranty.  Metal carports can also be fully braced to help make them stronger.  You can also get mobile home anchors, a certified carport, close the sides, close gables or ends and add a garage door to turn the carport into a metal garage.  You could also turn the carport into a metal garage at a later date but a key point to remember that in order to have enough clearance for the garage door on the regular carport the legs can be the same height as the garage door but on the boxed and vertical carports you will need the legs to be one foot taller than the garage door height.

2 car metal carport

2 car metal carport is delivered and installed for free to 19 different states in the USA.  The 2 car metal carport comes in a variety of sizes.  The width for the 1 car carport is 12' wide then there is a 18' wide some people call this a 2 car carport but it is a little to narrow to be able to park a car and safely open the doors.  The 18' wide would be fine for a car and a motorcycle or a small tractor.  A small 2 car metal carport would start out at 20' wide then the next size is 22' wide and that a comfortable and most popular 2 car carport is the 24' wide.  

The shortest in length is a 21' long carport which is OK for smaller vehicles but a 26' long would be the way to go if you have a longer truck or if your wanting to have an area on the back end for storage which really comes in handy.  You can make the metal 2 car carport longer in 5' increments.

The metal carport is anchored to the ground, asphalt or concrete for free.  The 2 car carport can be made taller depending on the height of the car or truck your wanting to park under the carport.  The legs get taller in one foot increments with up to 12' legs.  The 12' tall leg makes a great rv carport.

If you need a carport wider than the 2 car carport we also have a triple wide carport and a 40 wide carport.

The carports can be partially enclosed, fully enclosed and turned into a metal garage or let open.

The 2 car carport is custom built in your choice of 13 different colors.

Metal Carports Are Not Just For Cars

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Thu, Jul 14, 2011

metal carportsMetal 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.

Feel free to share some of the ways you utilize your metal carport.
