The regular style carport is by far the most popular and the most affordable. The regular style carport consist of a circular frame design or as some call it a radius bend frame. What this means is that the connection between the side walls and the roof is circular in design as to allow sheets to run from the roof down to the sides, without any type of connection. This type of design allows for sheet metal to be installed from the front of the building to the back also known as horizontal sheets or horizontal roof. The ridges(corrugated) on the sheets of this type of installation run from front to back and are only recommended on buildings that are 31’ FT or shorter in length. This unit is considered to be more economical due to the fact that the sheets(on roof) run horizontal and do not require the building to have hat channel (extra framing to support roof), ridge caps, eave side trim, nor the welded transition from the bow(roof truss) to the legs(wall support/frame).
The boxed eave style carport is an upgrade to the regular style carport, this carport consist of an A-frame roof design. The bow/roof/truss has a welded transition via a steel pin onto the legs, note this type of buildings are often used just for the appearance and extra support that is provided by the welded transition. This building comes with horizontal sheets (the same type of sheets found in regular style) meaning the ridges on the roof run from front to back. As mentioned before this building is often purchased for its appearance as it has a better finish and comes with boxed eave trim that is installed underneath the eave sides of the roof/truss/bow. Remember The ridges(corrugated) on the sheets of this type of installation run from front to back and are only recommended on buildings that are 31’ FT or shorter in length.
The vertical style carport is by far the best and most desirable type of carport, this building is an upgrade to the boxed eave style. This building is highly recommended for areas that see a large amount of snow and rain throughout the year. Vertical carports/buildings are built with the A frame design seen in the boxed eave style, the main difference is that the roof in this carport is installed “vertically” meaning the sheets are installed in a way where the ridges run from the center of the building to the sides. This is important because it allows for rain, snow, leaves, etc. to run off the sides as opposed to staying on the roof, in order to achieve this hat channel is used and is the primary cause of why this building is set at a higher price. Verticals also come with boxed eave trim for appearance. Verticals are recommended for all buildings longer than 31’ Ft in length
