Simple, Small, but Resistant


At American Steel Carports, we want our buildings to meet all your needs and expectations. We can accommodate your specific requirements, especially when it comes to building permits. We can add as much material as it takes to get the unit fully protected and certified to the requirements of the city.

It is important that you talk to your local building department to verify all the state codes, because not all states or even cities within a state have the same ones.



What if you need extra spacing on the sides?


Our buildings come with specific numbers of legs to withstand the wind and other elements. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing we can do to customize to your needs. Here is a notable example of a carport for a customer who decided to add two headers to the sides for extra spacing or to park a small vehicle:


10’W x 21’L x 8’H

12-Gauge galvanized tubing

A-Frame Vertical Roof (Earth Brown)

2 – 9′ Header (one on each side)

Concrete Anchors (90-mph wind warranty)



The outcome was beautiful, and the colors matched the house and the environment. Please be aware that headers will reduce the side opening height by approximately 6″ – 24″ depending on state codes and length of the header. We will have to reinforce the structure with extra material in order to provide durability.


You can come up with your own ideas. If you have a project in mind, don’t hesitate to give us a call! A sales representative will go over the project with you so that we can find just the metal building you’re looking for. We can also draw sketches to ensure that customization and features, such as doors, windows, gables, siding, and headers, are in the right places before you make your final decision.

14′ Tall Metal Carport

Looking for a simple carport for your RV? Does your RV overpass the 12-foot standard height from the flyers?

At American Steel Carports, we ensure that our metal buildings meet all of your expectations and needs. We can accommodate your requirements, especially when it comes to building permits. Keep in mind that we can add as much material as your unit needs in order to make sure it’s fully protected and certified for the requirements of the city. However, it’s important for you to go to your local building department and talk to them in order to verify all of the state codes. Since all of the states have different requirements when it comes to installations, they might need to see plans or specifics.

When our customers look for metal RV covers, they can be concerned when the leg height that they’re looking for isn’t listed on the pricing flyers. But that doesn’t mean that we cannot go taller than 12 feet; in fact, the tallest we can go on a building is 20 feet in height. However, keep in mind that the leg height cannot exceed the width of the unit.

Take this metal carport as an example. It’s 14 feet tall:

  • 30’W x 41’L x 14’H
  • 12-Gauge Galvanized Tubing
  • A-Frame Vertical Roof

All of our metal units are engineer-certified, and with their one-year workmanship warranty, we allow our buildings to go through all four seasons to make sure that they don’t have any leaks or issues.

Give us a call! If wind and/or snow loads are your main concerns, don’t forget to ask our representatives about our wind warranties and how we can certify your unit when it comes to large amounts of snow.
