What does an engineer-certified carport or building mean?

Purchasing a steel carport may mean you need to obtain a permit from your local county or city.  For Advanced Plans and Calculations, our manufacturers engineers will contact your local county to ensure your building is up to code and can withstand the elements such as wind and snow. The Advanced Plans will include all of the necessary information for you need to submit with your permit application. The plans are an additional cost, non-taxable, and payment is required at the same time as your down payment.P

Gauge

Every carport or steel building starts with the base-frame. Depending on you locale, you may opt for the stronger gauge steel frame. The 12-gauge steel frame is our recommended choice for all carports or buildings, no matter the size.
