The carport installation was a success. It is providing shade and rain cover as anticipated and the dogs love playing under it, especially in the dog pool.

Wichita, KS

A customer called in to finish paying her balance by credit card.  She wanted to also say how she felt about the installation.  She spoke with GPB, Inc. about how very happy she and her husband were with the installation.

At the time she called in, Friday 7.9.10, the crew was there and were almost finished installing.  Our customer was gushing with thankfulness.  She said the carport looks great, what an excellent job was done, and she was so happy because the carport was installed promptly.  The customers even gave a $60 tip to the crew for carrying materials to the back of the property, as there was no room for the delivery truck to pull in as it normally would have done for the customers.

All around, this was a very successful transaction and we are quite happy when things work out so nicely for our customers, crew and all involved.  Thanks to GPB, Inc. and everyone.

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.
