What to Look For: Carports come in many combinations of shapes and sizes. Many states nationwide have signs displaying a starting price of $695.00 for metal carports. Depending on where you live, however, you need to know what gauge to look for in a metal carport, as well as other factors. Did you know metal carport gauge makes a difference in price? Do you need something other than a 18’x20’x6′ carport? What about your needs for width, length, height or gauge? Will you need a certified metal carport?  The wall height of these structures is not the same as the peak height, which is commonly misunderstood.

Basic considerations of a metal carport include:

  • Width
  • Length
  • Height (wall height which determines peak height – two different things)
  • Gauge
  • Style
  • Color
  • Roof design type

What to Consider: So you can see there are many things to consider when you are in the market for a metal carport, RV cover, carcover or carporch. A lot of people find themselves in need of one of these portable carports in a hurry and they usually need to go online and shop quickly. It is nice to find a resource to answer questions but sometimes it is difficult to do so. If you are about to spend about a thousand dollars or more, you would want to know as much as possible about a steel structure that is going to protect and shade your vehicle, travel trailer, truck or car, right? I definitely would.
