Vertical Carports: A Unique Design for a Unique Ride!
A-frame vertical carports are built with superior structural strength. This is due to a feature known as hat channels. These steel beams, resembling hats, add a layer of durability and stability that no other carport can match.
Another excellent feature of vertical roof metal carports is the panel design, which runs vertically rather than horizontally. This allows rainwater to slide off the side, taking any debris that’s built up with it. Moisture will not accumulate on the corrugated roof panels, meaning lower maintenance and a less intense cleaning process for you.
A World of Applications for Vertical Roof Metal Carports
Most people may assume a carport uses its name literally, but you’ll find a multitude of different applications for space. It can serve as an ideal place for any business or event. Applications may include:
Patio Cover – In the summer months, who doesn’t enjoy sitting out on the patio, enjoying a nice lemonade and cracking open a book. A vertical roof carport provides the shade you need for a summer afternoon.
On-site Office Pavilion – Many people who run small offices, have seen the benefits of using vertical roof carports as outdoor gathering areas for employees, be it for team building exercises, lunch breaks, or just a nice place to work outside. There’s no shortage of studies showing a happy employee is a productive one, and the change of atmosphere may be just the trick.
Dog Shelter – Are you one of the 63 million Americans who own a dog? If you have several, you know what a joy it is to play with them outside, but it can be difficult to corral them. A dog shelter from a vertical roof carport gives them just the right amount of protection and a place to rest after throwing the ball around.
Picnic Area – Picnics are always a pleasant outing for the whole family. Come rain or intense sun; a vertical roof carport will keep your food and beverages safe and orderly while also acting as a communal gathering place for guests.
Extra Storage – You’ve accrued a lot of equipment, knickknacks, and personal mementos over the years, and it’s not always convenient to pay a visit to an off-site storage unit. A vertical roof carport doesn’t just have to store your vehicle.
A-Frame Vertical Carports: Customized to Your Specific Desires
But it’s not just the applications that can provide alternatives. You can further customize to perfectly align your vertical roof carport for precisely what you need.
Size – Vertical roof carports start at 12′ x 21′, the average size for any car. But if you’re looking to store larger vehicles such as RVs or boats, no problem. The size of your carport can be increased, for whatever you take on the road.
Roof Styles – Picking a roof style right for your climate has just as much to do with appearance as protection, as what will work best for you depends on the climate you live in. A vertical roof has panels that run vertically, which is ideal for those who live in harsh climatic conditions. But, for those living in mild and moderate weather conditions, you can choose from:
- Regular Roof The most economical choice on the market comes with horizontal paneling. Best in mild weather conditions, their attractive rounded corners make them a popular look.
- A-frame Horizontal Roof This roof also has horizontal panels. It’s more affordable than a vertical roof. This roof style is good for areas that have some high winds but don’t get a lot of snow or rain.
Colors – Selecting the right color for your vertical roof carport may seem like a decision based purely on your personal tastes, but it can provide a lot more than just a nice look. Depending on where you live, color can affect the temperature inside your carport. Light colors are recommended for warmer climates, while darker colors complement the cold well.

Gray.
Gables – A vertical roof carport can come with gable ends. These gables can be added in the front, back of both ends to cover up the truss and give your carport a touch of style.
Galvanized Steel Framing – High-quality metal is an American tradition, and its durability is the ultimate factor that makes it world-renowned. 14-gauge steel is typical in metal carports, but you have the option of thicker, 12-gauge as well. This provides an even sturdier structure.
Gauged Roofing – Customize the thickness of your roof. Vertical roof carports roofs are made to last. While 29-gauge steel offers plenty of protection, but always remember that the bigger the number, the thinner the steel. That’s why Triple-A Steel Structures also offers 26-gauge steel.

Building Permits: A Necessary Protection
For any building project, local city ordinances require that you meet the requirements and apply for the necessary permits before you start the installation. Fortunately, though, for something like a vertical roof carport, the process is fairly straightforward.
Cutting corners is never the right way to go; just ask any 70s disaster movie. At the very least, you’ll find yourself spending money on fines you never thought you’d have to worry about. Not doing this correctly can mean:
Fines – Failure to file for permits is a violation of the city ordinance. That’s why you should take this advice from the Salt Lake City Building Services and Civil Enforcement’s website. “Basically, all work being done requires a permit.” When in doubt, always apply for a permit. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Without one, they are liable to numerous fines, especially if safety is at risk. Fines can go up to $275 a day.
Installation Stoppage – If you’re caught without a permit, fines are only a part of your concern. The city can order installation to stop. They can also throw in an Order to Comply, an Order not to Cover, or an Order to Uncover.
Property Lines – It would be wise to familiarize yourself with how close you are allowed to build near property lines. They’ll vary from place to place, but it’s a safe bet to keep at least five feet from your neighbor’s property. Violating property lines can result in lawsuits.
Requested Response – If you do violate any permit laws, you’ll be requested to respond with the appropriate documentation within a set limit of time. This is why it’s vital to keep a record of any and all information or documents you receive throughout the process.
