Single carports are recommended between 12 and 18 ft wide.This gives you the width to park comfortably and open both doors without a much concern for damage to your car. The extra width could be used for storage or can be helpful in keeping heavy wind-blown rain off your vehicles.
Double carports are considered between 20 ft. wide and 24 ft. wide. The wider you go the more comfortable you will be in parking two cars. Car sizes depend on the make and model of your car, so to be accurate you should measure your car to make sure you have the space you need. You could also consider a side entry carport if you need more width, going longer is cheaper than going wider (per sf).
Triple carports are considered between 20 ft. wide and 24 ft. wide. The wider you go the more comfortable you will be in parking two cars. Car sizes depend on the make and model of your car, so to be accurate you should measure your car to make sure you have the space you need.

Regular roofs are the original design for roof styles and also the most economical. The bows or trusses are bent during manufacturing to create its unique barn-style shape. We recommend this style for customers who reside in areas that experience only moderate weather conditions.
Also known as the boxed-eave roof, the A-frame design is cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing. With the paneling running horizontally (end to end), this roof is best suited for areas that may experience some high winds but not heavy precipitation.
The vertical roof style is not only the most popular options we offer at Winslows, but it is also the highest recommended. Its additional framing and vertical-oriented paneling make this roof functional in all climates; however, it is recommended for areas with foul weather such as high winds and heavy precipitation.

All our carports are made with heavy-duty galvanized steel to ensure superior strength and durability. There are two types of steel framing that we use for our buildings: 12- and 14- gauge. The lower the gauge, the stronger it is, 12-gauge being our strongest options. It has a diameter of 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” and a high tensile strength, commonly used for carports 10’ or taller. Our 14-gauge framing is 2 ½” x 2 ½” in diameter is the industry standard.
