Look for the Right Features
If you want to add a carport to your property, and you want to make sure it’s the best heavy duty carport available, there are certain features you should have on your checklist. If another carport dealer is offering buildings that don’t hit on some of these points, you’ll likely be disappointed with the product in the end.
A significant warranty
The warranty that a manufacturer is willing to place behind their product pretty much says it all, right? If they don’t think it’s going to last for years to come, they aren’t going to offer to replace it if something goes wrong. At American Steel Carports, Inc., the 12-gauge carports we sell are backed by a 20-yearrust through of framing warranty. With two decades of coverage, you can be sure that we believe in what we sell.
This is another important point to consider when ordering a carport. Has the design of your carport been certified by an engineer? If not, you’ll be left to wonder if the structure is going to live up to the heavy duty expectations that you have for the carport. All our products are certified by an engineer for your peace of mind.
Carports are simple structures, but they still need proper support throughout the design to make sure they stand tall in tough conditions. One way to keep a carport strong for years to come is to add roof bracing. We add the recommended bracing, so you won’t need to worry about your roof coming down when the wind comes up.
In an ideal world, every carport manufacturer would consider the things listed above as essential. That’s not the case, however, so be sure to work with someone like American Steel Carports, Inc. to make sure you get the strong carport you deserve.
Designed for Strength
The Build & Price tool on our site is a popular feature that we are proud to offer. With this tool, you can customize nearly every part of your carport, leaving you with a building that suits your needs and requirements. As part of this customization process, you can make selections that will only enhance the strength and performance capabilities of your new carport.
For example, going with an A-Frame Vertical roof design is going to increase the strength of the carport as compared to a regular roof with rolled eaves and horizontal panels. Also, you may decide to add a sidewall on the side of the carport that is most exposed to the elements in your area. That will help keep some of the wind out from under the structure, placing less stress on the building over time.
Those looking for a heavy duty carport will also want to be sure to select 12-gauge framing as opposed to 14-gauge. Various anchor options are available, as well, to make sure your carport remains firmly rooted in place.
