A-Frame Metal Carports

A-Frame Metal Carports

The shape of an A-frame style building is one that has made it a popular and useful type of structure for generations. With a roof that pitches off to each side, A-frames tend to be strong and they do a great job of shedding precipitation in the form of rain or snow. So, when looking for a new carport to serve your property, choosing an A-frame metal carport from American Steel Carports, Inc. is a wise move.

If you would like to see what’s possible with a new A-frame metal carport, start by trying our Build & Price tool. This free online tool is available on our site and it will enable you to design a custom carport from the ground up. Should you need any assistance, please contact us right away and a member of our team will be happy to help!

Why Choose an A-Frame?

By going with an A-frame carport, rather than a structure with a rolled roofline, you’ll enjoy several notable advantages. For starters, it is easy to customize this type of carport, especially when you work with a reliable partner like American Steel Carports, Inc. We take pride in our many customization options, so you can be sure you’ll come away with precisely the right carport for your needs when the process is complete.

In addition, if you happen to live in an area with particularly rough weather conditions, an A-frame is the ideal shape to stand up to the wind, rain, and more. You want to get many years of service from your new carport, and going with an A-frame makes it much more likely to reach that outcome. If the customization and durability weren’t enough, there is also the visual appeal of an A-frame to consider. These are good-looking buildings that will be a welcome addition to any property.

The Importance of a Vertical Roof

As you work on the design of your new A-frame carport, we strongly recommend that you consider using vertical roof panels on this project. Orienting your roof panels horizontally may save money, but the vertical option is only modestly more expensive and will deliver some welcome benefits. Most notably, a vertical roof on your carport is going to excel at shedding precipitation. For climates with consistent rain and snow, a vertical roof will be a big, important upgrade.

The benefit of using a vertical roof can also be seen for carports that are located under or near large trees. If you expect a fair amount of debris to fall on the roof of your carport during the year, the vertical orientation of your roof panels will help that debris slide right off. And, what doesn’t slide off on its own should be easy to remove.

If you have any questions about picking between a vertical and horizontal roof, please contact us directly for assistance.

Picking the Right Custom Features

Once you’ve decided on a roof structure, you can choose the best custom features that suit your needs. You may want to add a partial or full sidewall on one or more sides of the carport to protect against the elements. If the rain and snow tend to blow in from one specific direction on your property, you can protect that side with a wall to keep everything under the roof nice and dry. Or, you might want to consider extra-tall legs to elevate the level of your roof and make it possible to part a large RV or boat under the A-frame. Whatever the case, our team will work with you to make sure this is the carport of your dreams.

Metal carports come with many benefits, but you’ll only enjoy the full weight of those benefits if you order from a trusted brand with a long and proven history in this business. With American Steel Carports, Inc., you can be sure the carport you receive has been carefully constructed using durable materials that will hold up for the long run.
