A Deceptively Simple Design of an A-Frame Metal Carport
Boxed-eave carports, also known as A-frame roof carports, have a unique design that looks simplistic, where the style matches the roof of a house. The primary difference between a boxed-eave carport and a vertical one has to do with the direction of the roof sheeting. Rather than running vertically, they run horizontally. This allows rain and snow to run off the roof as opposed to down the sides. This is a sturdy, cost-effective option for your storage and coverage needs.
A Plethora of Applications for A-Frame Carports
Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s limited in use. A boxed-eave carport is best suited for moderate climates, which means they’re perfect for all kinds of outdoor activity.
Outdoor Work Area – The perfect setting for getting some woodworking or welding done in the shade, boxed-eave roof carports are a great place for hobbies and work.
Poolside Cabana – Turn your pool area into a miniature resort. Poolside cabanas made from boxed-eave roof carports are a cost-efficient way to pamper yourself. Paint it bright colors, include fresh towels and maybe even a minibar for optimum pleasure.
Shaded Playground Area – If you have children, you’re always on the lookout for safe places for your kids to play. An A-frame metal carport provides just the right amount of shade, and it can be placed where you can still keep a watchful eye.
Picnic Area – Outdoor family gatherings are always a treasured experience to be reflected upon years later, and a boxed-eave roof carport can protect your food and beverages from even the most unpleasant weather.
Storage for Lawn Equipment – Those with particularly elaborate lawns need a place to keep their top-of-the-line mowers and other equipment that makes their shrubbery the prize of the neighborhood. Boxed-eave carports are durable and secure, reducing concerns about theft significantly.
Boxed-Eave Carports: Customized to Your Specific Desires
But the options don’t stop with applications. Further customization to tailor your boxed eave roof carport for precisely what you need is practically at your fingertips and easy to set up.
Size – Boxed-Eave roof carports start at 12′ x 21′, the average size for any car, but can be easily altered higher or lower or wider depending on what you require.
Roof Styles – Selecting a roof style right for your climate is an important step of the process, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style. Our A-frame roof carports have boxed-eave paneling that runs horizontally. But that’s not your only option.
- Regular Roof Our regular roof carports come in the popular rounded look, and like the boxed-eave, run horizontally.
- Vertical Roof For the premium option in prefabricated carports, vertical roofs offer additional reinforcement and panels that run vertically, allowing leaves and debris to slide off the side with the rain.
Colors – Choosing the right color for your boxed-eave carport is much more than just an aesthetic choice. Depending on where you live, the right color can provide extra protection from heat and extreme cold. Up to 16 different colors are at your disposal, from White, Q. Gray, Black, Beige, Sandstone, Clay, Tan, C. Red, Barn Red, V. Burgundy, S. Blue, Evergreen, E. Brown, H. Orange, Galvalume, and P. Gray.
Gables – Boxed-eave carports can also come with gable ends. These fasten the roof to the sides of the building firmly.
Anchors – We use different types of anchors to secure our A-frame roof carports. We can customize your anchors depending on if you plan on installing your steel carport on grass, gravel, asphalt, or concrete.
Galvanized Steel Framing – 14-gauge steel framing is typical in steel carports, but a 12-gauge is thicker, offering an even sturdier metal building.
Gauged Roofing – Our steel carports come in 26 and 29-gauge panels for the roof. If you’re looking for the best in strength, the 26-gauge offers more resistance to dents.
Certifications – A certified metal carport must meet the local safety and building code requirements. Triple-A Steel Structures offer certified metal buildings to make sure your building is up to all the local standards.
An Elegant Look at an Affordable Price
The durability and eloquence a boxed-eave carport provides are enough of a selling point, as is the fact that they’re considerably cheaper than the alternative. The final cost will depend on what customized options you decide upon, your location, and the manufacturer you choose. However, the starting price for a boxed-eave roof is $1,295.
It’s not a minor purchase by any means, but the financing options available, whether you choose to rent-to-own or use a traditional financing program, are completely catered to the cost-aware buyer.
A Permit to the Future
Like any construction project, the necessary permits you need to apply for vary from location to location. But for a simple job such as this, it’s a fairly straightforward process that may be time-consuming but hardly complicated. And the risks of forgoing what local ordinance requires are too severe to incur.
Cutting corners is always a dicey proposition, and it’ll only end badly. But there are headaches you can avoid by obtaining building permits before you begin metal carport installation. Not doing this correctly can mean:
Fees – Failure to file for permits is a violation of the city ordinance. You are liable to numerous fees, especially if safety is at risk.
Installation Stoppage – Being caught building without a permit can not only result in fines, but the city will halt the installation, setting you back to square one.
Property Lines – You should also be familiar with what you’re allowed to build near property lines, which can change from place to place.
Retroactive Permits – Retroactive permits are possible to get if you’ve overlooked something, but it’s better to have all your ducks in a row before you start any project. Fees, loss of license, and delays are not worth the hassle.
