Buying a carport can be as easy as counting one, two, three, or like we would say here at American Carports, single, double, or triple. Deciding on the best option that will fit your needs can sometimes be difficult, with American Steel Carports you shouldn’t have to struggle, we have professionals that can assist you through the whole process, from start to finish. Picking the right carport is perhaps the most important decision you will make in the entire buying process.
The first thing you need to decide when buying a metal carport is how the carport will be used. Consider how much space you’ll need to properly protect your belongings from all the different weather conditions the world can throw your way. It’s always better to have extra space rather than not enough. Also, it’s good to be sure to think about the future, maybe you plan to acquire additional vehicles that may need some extra storage.
Single Carports – Single carports range from 12 feet wide and are ideal for most single vehicles. A factor you might want to put in mind is height, our standard height is 6 feet which might be just enough for some cars. However, if you’re planning to use a single carport to store a larger vehicle like an SUV, trailer, RV, or even a motorhome, you may want to go up a size as it may be difficult to maneuver a large vehicle into a tight space.
Double Carports – Double carports range anywhere from 18 to 24 feet wide. Of course, a two-car carport is for storing two cars or a larger recreational vehicle or boat. As many vehicles might differ in size, it’s always best to make sure you measure the vehicle to be sure when getting your carport. After all it’s going to be way cheaper getting it right the first time.
Triple Carports – Triple carports generally range from 26 to 30 feet wide and provide just enough space for storing up to three vehicles. When you work with American Steel Carports, you can certainly opt for structures even bigger than that if you’d like more space!
