About The Regular Style Carport
Regular style carports are available in 12 and 14-gauge steel framing. The default gauge is 14 gauge but depending on your location, you might want to get 12 gauge framing. 12 gauge metal framing is thicker than 14 gauge metal. 12 gauge metal also comes with a 20 year rust warranty. Certification also can be added to regular style carports. This means that a regular style carport can be constructed to meet or exceed building codes and regulations in most areas. Get in touch with our team to learn more about certification and how we can help.
All regular style carports come with a standard horizontal roof. The 29-gauge panels run perpendicular to the bows. The bows are the metal arches making up the roof’s framework. These assist in the structural integrity of your carport. We can also provide additional braces and bows. This can help to enhance the durability of the steel building.

We also provide concrete and mobile home anchors. Customers who live in severe weather conditions should consider upgrading to our 12 gauge framing to add strength to their carport.

Many of our customers choose to add gabled ends to their regular style carports, which fill the triangular space between the tops of the legs and the peak of the building. A gabled end cuts down on your clearance height, but at the same time, it adds more support and gives the steel building a more refined look. Gabled ends can be added to the front, back, or both ends of a metal carport.
Here’s how you determine your regular style carport’s clearance. Begin with the height of the legs. The standard pitch of the roof is 3/12. That translates to the roof rising three feet with every 12 feet of width. Think of this as roughly the same as a ¼ pitch. That would mean that you go up one foot for every four feet you move to the side. There is close to nine inches of space from the top of the legs to the spot where the roof starts to slope. This is for a regular style structure. Let’s look at this thinking of an 18 foot wide regular style carport with 6 foot high legs.
Here is how you measure the clearance. Look at the leg height of 6 feet, and add the nine inches to the roof where it begins its slope. This puts us at 6 feet 9 inches. Then start moving toward the peak of the roof. This is in the center of the building. Count four feet in, and go up one foot. Four feet inward you should have a clearance of 7 feet, 9 inches. Keep doing this until you finally reach the peak of the building. For our example, it’s nine feet from a leg to the peak. That the rise will be two feet, four inches. You also have to add the original nine inches from the leg, in addition to the leg height. All together, the peak will have a clearance of about 9 feet, 2 inches. Don’t forget to take the top brace into account. This is going to bring the peak down a few inches. If you have questions, our friendly team of experts is here to help.
We can install these carports on either concrete or ground. We include cement anchor bolts for cement installation projects. We’ll pound these through a drilled hole in the structure. Then, we bolt it to the base rail of the carport. There’s a slightly different process for ground installation. It’s the responsibility of the customer to make sure the ground is level first. Also, make sure to contact the ‘call before you dig’ people prior to starting construction. We install ground carports using standard pin anchors. Keep in mind that these pin anchors are classified as temporary. We recommend that buyers upgrade to stronger anchors. This is especially if they expect to encounter snow or wind conditions. We use a three-foot rebar anchor with a nail head top as the pin anchor. This gets pounded into the ground through the base rail of the carport.
