What Size Do You Recommend?
Note: This is only an estimation. It is customer’s duty to measure what size best fits their needs.
The height or also known as “eaves” is where the sidewall meets the truss (bow). We carry a standard 4/12 pitch on our standard structures. Click here to learn more about your roof pitch. Oh! If you plan to enclose your metal carport in the future, make sure to select a leg height 6′ or above. No garage door fits in a 5′ leg height.
5′ Height – Simple carport. Will not fit garage doors
6′ -7′ Height – Perfect height for sheds to store tools, lawnmowers etc
8′ -9′ Height – Cars, Trucks, SUVs. Majority of garage doors fit in this height
10-11′ Height – Workshops, Garages, and some Motorhomes
12+ – RVs, Motorhomes, Semi-trucks
What size do I need for my concrete pad?
Concrete Slab should be flush with the measurements of your building.
Why go with vertical roof panels vs horizontal roof panels?
There would be less maintenance needed due to the fact that the snow, water, etc. would slide right off with vertical roof panels.
Do I need a permit?
You would need to contact your township & work with them, all townships vary. But we do send over the documents needed if a permit is required.
