Steel Carport Kits: Do-it-Yourself or Professionally Assembled


When you build your own carport, you have free rein to make it just the size you need to fit a car, truck, RV, or even boat. Beyond vehicle storage, carports have a variety of other uses. Some customers buy carport building plans to design an at-home gym or a picnic area to gather with friends. A DIY carport also provides excellent shade where you can sit and enjoy the outdoors without too much exposure to the sun. Alan’s Factory Outlet has a range of attractive and sturdy do-it-yourself metal carport kits. Our collection has metal carport plans to suit any need.

We provide free delivery of our carports to dozens of states, and our capable installers are happy to help you build your own carport. But if you already know or want to learn how to build a carport yourself, that option is open to you, too. If you want to do it yourself, carport plans can be added to your order. That way, you can enjoy the quality of a carport from Alan’s Factory Outlet and the satisfaction of building one yourself.

For some people, purchasing a carport from us means a chance to improve their DIY skills and learn how to build a carport.

Some of the DIYers who order from us and want to learn how to build a metal carport frame themselves recruit family and friends in the construction process, whether to create the concrete pad and level gravel foundation or to participate in the building of the actual structure. Younger children can watch with fascination as the idea of a metal carport becomes reality. Just like that, following metal DIY carport plans turns into a family affair!
