Yes, our carports can be made taller in 1 foot increments with up to 20' side height!

The concrete slab should be 1 foot shorter than the roof length (which is the exact size of the frame) For example, if the unit size is 26' x 31' the slab should be poured 26' x 30'.


Roof Styles

Regular Roof Style

Boxed Eave / A-Frame Roof Style

Boxed Eave / A-Frame Roof Style

  • Regular Roof style has a bend on each side from the roof to the sidewall with a 6" overhang front and back.
  • Comes with horizontal roof panels which allows the corrugated ridges on the roof panels run from front to back, or end to end. 
  • This style also comes with trim on front and back for a finished appearance!
  • The Regular Roof style is the most economical unit since it does not have the hat channel to support the roof panels, the ridge cap, the eave side trim nor the welded transistion from the roof bow/truss to the post.
  • All Regular Roof styles can be constructed in 14 & 12 gauge steel tubing and in certified configurations. We can customize any carport to fit all of your everday storage needs! 
  • Any carport can be turned into a fully enclosed garage!
  • Units longer than 36' should utilize the vertical roof style since our longest panel is 36' long.
  • Every carport comes with free delivery and installation on level land whether it is for ground or cement!
  • Avoid damange to your vehicle from weather and every day occurrences by purchasing sides and ends for your carport. 
  • For those on a budget and looking for something basic, this roof style is for you!

  • The A-Frame/Boxed Eave Roof style is our most popular design to match the architecture of the common A-frame house and is considered an upgrade over the Regular Style
  • In addition, this style comes with a 6" overhang eave on either side with box eave trim for a finished appearance!
  • Comes with horizontal roof panels which allows the corrugated ridges on the roof panels run from front to back or end to end. The roof bow/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin onto the posts.
  • It is also more affordable since it does not have the hat channel and ridge cap that the vertical roof has to support the vertical panels.
  • Every carport comes with free delivery and installation on level land whether it is for ground or cement!
  • Avoid damage to your vehicle from weather and every day occurrences by purchasing sides and ends for your carport!
  • If design aesthetics and budget are both important, this roof style is for you!

Vertical Roof Style

Boxed Eave / A-Frame Roof Style

Vertical Roof Style

image96

  • Vertical Roof (The A-Frame Design) - roof panels are installed vertically. 
  • The corrugated ridges in the panel run from the ridge cap down to the eave side of the building.
  • This allows dirt, trash, water and snow to exit off to the eave of the building.
  • This roof style is stronger because it is constructed with additional materials such as hat channel to support the vertical panels, ridge cap to cover the seams where the vertical panels meet at the apex of the roof. 
  • The underneath eave sides of the roof/truss are covered with a special vertical trim, giving it a very nice finished appearance!
  • All of our roof styles can be constructed in 14 & 12 gauge steel tubing and in certified configurations! 
  • Any of our carports can be turned into a fully enclosed dgarage!
  • Every carport comes with free delivery and installation on level land whether it is for ground or cement!
  • If high quality design and reduced roof-cleaning maintenance is more your thing, this roof style is the one or you!
