Our metal carports come with many style roofs, vertical, a-frame, and regular. The frames are made of 12-gauge or 14- gauge steel. All materials are strong and tested to withstand the elements. We offer a 20-year rust through warranty on 12-gauge steel framing. Our 12-gauge framing is 2¼” x 2¼” in diameter and has a higher tensile strength, providing for higher snow load and wind load capacity. We recommend 12-gauge steel for areas with heavy snow and high wind loads, as well as for carports that are 10’ or more in height, or 30’ or more in width.
