From sheltering your vehicles to providing the perfect shaded area for family gatherings and barbecues, our A-frame metal carports can accommodate a variety of applications. You can also have your carport customized specifically for storage, increasing the available space in your home. And while a roof-only, boxed-eave carport provides basic protection for your vehicles and other belongings, you can opt for additional features such as gables and side panels for extra coverage. With a little bit of imagination, you have your dream structure exactly the way you want it.
From the foundation of your building to its roof, we make sure you have a say in your building’s features at Winslows Custom Buildings. And while some features are slightly more important than others, each has a crucial role to play.
Roof Styles – There are three roof styles offered to our customers at Winslows Custom Buildings – regular, boxed-eave, and vertical. The regular roof is the original design for roofs in the metal building industry, being the most economical option. It is installed with rounded edges, resembling the look of an older, traditional barn. Our A-frame style has horizontally-oriented paneling and side eave trim that resembles the design of a traditional house. The vertical roof is our most popular, top-selling roof design at Winslows Custom Buildings. It is engineered with vertically-oriented paneling, ridge caps, and a hat channel that provides additional protection.
Additional Paneling – We also offer additional side paneling at Winslows Custom Buildings for those who wish to add coverage to their structures. While you may like the open concept of a roof-only building, side panels can be added for additional protection to your property.
Utility Storage – Everyone has junk laying around their homes that they wish they could just put up somewhere. By adding a utility unit to your carport, you can finally have a place to store all those items that seem to always be in your way. It can also be used for gardening tools, outdoor equipment, sporting gear, or even decorations.
Dimensions – Choosing the dimensions of your structure is a crucial step to the process. There are a few things to remember when making a decision though – how you plan to use the carport, how much available space your site has, future needs, etc. If you aren’t sure what size you need, just call one of our specialists for assistance.
With such versatile designs, you’ll never have to worry about your style being cramped when you purchase an A-frame carport. Not only do they blend seamlessly with current structures, but they shelter your belongings from adverse weather, no matter rain or shine. And with additional side panels or gables, you can further the protection of your personal property. There are a number of advantages to owning a boxed-eave metal carport, including:
Customizable – From the panel orientation to the anchoring system used to secure your building to the ground, you can customize everything. We will never ask you to compromise your needs, wants, or budget at Winslows Custom Buildings.
Easy Installation – These pre-engineered carports have a quick and easy installation process to follow. With a level site, the proper tools, and good weather, your structure can be put up and ready-to-go within a few days.
Durable – These structures have been designed and engineered to withstand harsh weather, the ever-changing elements, and your ever-changing needs. Their heavy-duty, galvanized steel framing allows them to last for years on end with little required maintenance.
Choosing the right combination of colors for your custom metal carport allows you to harmonize the structure with your property. You want to avoid your carport clashing with the aesthetics of your home design. With this tip in mind, you can select colors for the roof, side panels, and trim of your carport from our unique collection. Depending on your location, the number of available colors may vary. Because of our handy color planner, you can also see all your chosen customizations on your new carport before spending any of your hard-earned money. This tool gives you the option to make any changes to the structure before placing your order.
Compared to regular roof structures, our A-frame carports have a slight upcharge due to their side eave trim. However, the lack of ridge caps and hat channels that our vertical roofs require keep the cost at a reasonable number. Along with these framing pieces, the size of your carport, site location, manufacturer, and added customizations will also factor into the final price of the building. Keep this in mind when choosing how big or small you wish your carport to be.
When comparing the two, there are obvious differences in their aesthetics. For example, boxed-eave carports have horizontally-oriented panels and side eave trim while the vertical roof carports are installed with vertical panels, ridge caps, and a hat channel for additional protection. Each roof provides reliable protection for the structure’s contents but are engineered for specific weather conditions. Boxed-eave roofs are best suited for areas that may have some high winds with light precipitation; the vertical roof is recommended for harsh weather elements but is reliable in all conditions.
The thickness of the steel, also known as steel gauge, is what determines the strength of the steel components used to build your carport. We have two sizes to choose from at Winslows Custom Buildings: 12- and 14-GA tubing. The 12-gauge tubing measures at 2 ¼” x 2 ¼”, a much stronger, more durable option compared to our 14-GA. The 14-GA tubing has a diameter of 2 ½” x 2 ½” and is the tubing standard in the metal building industry.
