Simple carports can transform into something customized!

Metal steel carports have been in the industry for many years, offering great protection for your belongings. That’s why American Steel Carports is here to back you up! With over 15 years of experience, we know exactly how to install a strong and steady carport.

Customizing your metal carport is another key service that our company offers. Our experts can give you recommendations on certain sizes or dimensions. If you have an idea or a rough sketch of your dream building, let us help you bring it to life! It is important for us to build your unit according to your needs, whether you want a lean-to for storing extra equipment or additional shade, like in the building below:

  • 26’W x 41’L x 12’H (main unit)
  • 12-Gauge galvanize Tubing
  • Standard Roof
  • Horizontal Gable End (back end)
  • 12’W x 41’L x 11’/10’H Lean-To


The outcome of this customization was very beautiful! Our customer’s idea turned out to look incredible, especially since the metal carport is near the shore.


You can customize your unit, too! Give us a call and ask to speak with one of our sales representatives. They will go over your ideas until we can build you the perfect building. Whether your carport is custom or non-custom, we will explain the process to you in easy steps. Remember that we can provide a free sketch on how your unit will look if you need visual representation. Also, don’t forget to ask about our financing options, or click here for more information.

The Importance of Having Mobile Home/Asphalt/Concrete Anchors

“Why do I need a wind warranty? Nothing happens here anyway! The anchors are an unnecessary expense! I’ll just stick with the rebar anchors.”


These are some of the comments that we hear all the time. However, strong winds can always catch us by surprise, especially at the start of summer. It’s better to stay safe than be sorry later on.


One of the things you must know is that we do offer free rebar anchors (measuring 30”), but those are only temporary—they don’t come with any type of warranty. That’s why is important for you to consider one of our three other anchor choices that will prevent any type of damage to your carport.


We offer both asphalt and mobile home anchors (both measuring 30”) for $25.00 each. Both of these types of anchors stick up 2/5 inches off the ground (the same as the base rail). We also offer concrete anchors (measuring 7”) for $10.00 each.


Here are two examples of why it is so important for you to consider purchasing anchors instead of getting our free rebar ones:







It might seem as if the anchors would not make a difference, but they do, especially in the southern areas of the country.



Nobody but you knows the exact wind scenarios of your area. If you’re not sure about your wind concerns, you can always go to your local building department for more detailed information. Remember, we’re here to help! If you want us to certify your metal building for winds above 90 mph, let us know! We will have our engineering department help build your metal carport or metal garage to withstand those winds.
