Let’s look at metal carport roof types
When it comes to metal carports there are three roof type: regular, boxed eave, and vertical.
The regular roof type has rounded eaves that come down the side a little bit.
A boxed eave is squared off, providing a small overhang on the sides, with lines running horizontally from front to back.
A vertical roof has lines that run vertically from the peak to the walls and is recommended for excellent strength and runoff and will typically add to the overall price of a metal carport.
Gabling covers the end caps at the roof. You can customize your Metal Carport with one gable end or two you can have one end completely walled.
Reinforce your Metal Carport with walls
Walls are often available in 3-foot increments. They do provide security and shelter and give your carport an enclosed look.
Metal Carports in the north will require extra strength to handle snowfall. Those in the south may require extra anchoring for high winds during hurricane season. Some can be built with thicker steel and come with a longer warranty. Each of these will add to your cost by varying degrees depending on the size. Be sure to discuss this before buying.
