Metal Garage Price Compared to Metal Carport Price
The carport price is going to be more economical when compared to the fully enclosed metal garage but the carport will only give you roof top coverage where the metal garage price is more due to the fact that that not only is the roof covered but both sides and both ends are covered with a garage door on one end. If you don't need full protection from the sun and weather or theft than the carport would be the way to go but if you need total protection from the elements than investing a little more today can help save you money in the long run from the metal garage that will help protect your valuable items.
One other option that some of our clients have done is go with a metal carport now to save money and down the road you can close the sides and ends and add a garage door later when the funds become available. Two things to keep in mind if you want to go this route is you will need to make sure the leg height on the carport is tall enough for the garage door to fit later. The regular style carports can be the same height as the garage door height while the 2 other styles boxed eave and vertical carport leg height will need to be one foot taller than the garage door height. One other thing to remember is there is a $50 trip charge for all add ons under $595. If the amount is over $595 it is free delivery and installation.
