Carports are the perfect place to protect your truck or car.

Carports are built in several different sizes and styles.  The carport in this picture is a boxed eave style carport.  The metal carports can be left open and used as a shelter, fully close it and you have one of the metal garages or like this carport you have the best of both worlds. 

Carports Garages

A carport shelter area where the vehicle goes and then a garage storage in the back to secure items that need to be locked up or require 100% protection from the weather elements.

The garage door size on enclosed garage section in this picture is 6x6 which is the smallest size garage door we offer.  Another option would be to go with a taller leg height carport and then you would be able to go with a 9x8 size garage door.  Or if you will only be storing items that need to fit through a 36" door than the 36" walk in door may be they way to go. 

Carports length go every 5' in length increments.  This metal carport is 26' long so that leaves you with 5' of storage space.  The next size longer is 31' long which would give you 10' of garage storage space if you kept the carport portion the same.

Alan's Factory Outlet carports garages may just what you've been looking for a carport and a garage in one convenient building.

Carolina Carports

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, May 14, 2011

Carolina Carports

carolina carports

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Alan's Factory Outlet carports and metal garages are delivered and setup for free to 18 different states.

Please feel free to ask a question or leave a comment about the carports.

10x16 Vinyl Dutch Barn | Vinyl Storage Buildings | Amish Sheds

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Sep 18, 2010

Vinyl Storage Sheds Dutch Barn 10x16 VA Virginia

Alan's Factory Outlet has many different sizes and styles of Vinyl Sheds.  The Vinyl Storage Building in the picture above is of a 12x16 Dutch Barn with an optional arched glass door.  All of the Sheds are Amish Built and delivered on a truck and shed trailer fully assembled and ready for you to immediately begin enjoying.  Amish Sheds come with double doors and two windows with shutters.  The shed windows have a screen in them.  Two gable vents are also included with the storage buildings.  Amish sheds are built in several other siding options other than the vinyl 4" dutch lap siding.

Storage Building Siding options by price from the most economical to premium.  

  1. Metal Carports and Metal Garages are the most economical building which is kind of unfair in this comparison due to how it is constructed, however we did want to include it as an option as this may be the best option for some people.  The main advantage with steel buildings is they are built on site.  Metal buildings are actually the only product line that we have that are built on site.  All of our other structures are prebuilt modular structures.  Now to explain the main difference.  The metal buildings are made with 2 1/2" 14 GA tubing which is 5' on center and then 29 GA metal sheeting.  The Amish sheds are made with 2"x4" Joists 16" on center.  So you can see that the prebuilt sheds are built to the specs of a house.   
  2. Wooden Sheds are the most economical siding option of the prebuilt structures.  The wood sheds are built with Duratemp Siding.  The Duratemp siding has a 25 year warranty. 
  3. Vinyl Sheds are the next most economical siding.  Vinyl sheds will never need to be painted and many people have vinyl homes so a vinyl shed just makes sense.  The 4" dutch lap vinyl siding has a limited lifetime warranty.
  4. Board Batten Sheds are a heavy duty rustic alternative.  This is the same type of siding the Horse Barns and Run in Sheds are built with.  The siding is 1" thick eastern white pine siding.
  5. Log Sheds come with a 6' front porch and makes a great hunting cabin or if you have a log home you may want to invest in a log shed to make your shed blend in with your log home.
  6. Cedar Sheds is the premium siding option with 1"x10" Cedar Siding.  Cedar siding is a very durable siding and of course has the nice cedar chest kind of smell.

The movie below is a 10x16 vinyl dutch barn.  The main color on this building is sandlewood, trim green with green doors and shutters.
