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.
