Roof Design - We offer two primary roof designs. One of which is the Standard Rolled-Corner design. The other design is the A-frame with Boxed Eave. Both designs can be constructed the 12 Gauge, 14 Gauge, and Certified configurations. 

Options - We also offer a variety of options with our carports. On both the standard type and the A-frame type, the carport comes with a Standard Horizontal Roof. The roof panels run parallel to the side of the carport. With our A-frame with Boxed Eave products, you can choose to have the panels installed vertically at an additional charge. You should consider purchasing additional panels to the side of your carport to keep the blowing rain off of your vehicles or equipment. Also consider the addition of gable ends to your carport, especially if you are placing the carport near your home.

What are the names of the parts used to create my carport?

The illustration above shows all the parts that go into creating a vertical roof carport.  These components are the same for regular style carports and for boxed eve style carports with the exception of the hat channel.

 

What materials are used to make the structures?

The majority of components utilized in our frames are made of 2 1/4" by 2 1/4" galvanized steel tubing for 12 gauge buildings and 2 1/2" by 2 1/2" for 14 gauge buildings.

What sizes are available for carports and garages?

For most of our carports and garages, the standard sizes are listed below. However, if these standard sizes are not suitable for you, please call us and we will try to accommodate your needs!

12 x 21 12 x 26 12 x 31 12 x 36 12 x 41

What are the frame dimensions for my carport/garage?

The exact dimensions of the frame are as follows:
If the carport is a 12'x21', the frame will be 12' outside to outside of the frame, and the length will be 20' end to end. If an 18'x31', the width will be 18' outside to outside, length 30' end to end and so forth. The extra foot of length comes from the standard 6" of roof overhang on each end of the structure.

What methods are used to anchor the carport and garages?

There are three anchoring types. If the structure were to be mounted to a concrete pad or footing, then traditional concrete wedge anchors would be used. We offer a 30 inch rebar anchor that is intended for use when a structure is mounted directly to dirt or gravel surface. On our certified buildings, a helical mobile home anchor is used. On non-certified structures, these can be purchased as an optional item.

How long does it take from the time I place my order until the time the building is installed?

The majority of our installations are completed in 2-4 weeks!

What are the tallest legs that can be ordered?

The tallest legs that can be ordered are 12 feet. Anything taller than 12 feet can be ordered by special approval only. Our installation professionals are equipped with the tools to to handle installations of up to 12 feet.

What preparation should be completed before my building is installed?

Insure that the site designated for product installation is a flat and square surface. In order to provide you with affordable products, with quick installation, site preparation, as well as building permits, are the responsibility of the customer. The customer is responsible for any local permits, covenant searches, rights of way, set-back restrictions, etc.

Why aren't the prices listed online?

Our authorized dealers have up to date price listings and prices do vary from state to state. Several factors govern why our prices vary from state to state. Shipping and freight from our distribution centers, construction requirements, which factor in snow load requirements in northern states, wind and anchoring system requirements in hurricane and tornado prone areas, are all factors that result in price variances from state to state.

Will ordering direct from USA Carports result in a lower price?

No! We will take your order but the price will not be any lower. We would prefer that you visit a partner/dealer that is local to your area. Our dealers have been the key to our sales success and we are very loyal to those dealers. Our price will not be less than the price they provide to you.

Why can't I order from Eagle Carports online?

First and foremost, we would prefer that you contact one of our professional dealers. They are equipped with the prices, photos, options, etc. to assist you in placing your order.

Why should I consider a vertical roof versus a horizontal roof in my metal building?

As displayed on our carport and garage sections of the website, the ridges of the steel panels in a horizontal roof run parallel to the sides and ridge of the carport or garage. Water, snow, etc., will drain to the front and back of the building, towards the door openings. If the building is perfectly level, water will ten to pond on a horizontally installed roof. On a vertical roof, the ridges of the steel panels run from the top of the carport or garage to the sides. This roof configuration displaces water, snow, etc., much more efficiently and water will not pond on the roof. Water will also drain away from the door openings (unless the doors are installed on the sides of the carports or garages).

What are the on center spacing of the frame legs/bows?

As a general rule, the spacing of the frame legs/bows are 4 feet or 5 feet on center.

What is the height in the center of the building if I order a certain height leg?

The chart below will allow you to calculate this measurement. For example, if the carport / garage is a Standard Style Double unit, 20 feet wide with 7 feet legs, add 3' 0" to the 7 feet leg height for a total height of 10'.

Width

Standard Style Double
Carport/Garage

Boxed Eave and Vertical Roof
Carports/Garage
12' 2' 6" 2' 0"
18' 3' 0" 2' 6"
20' 3' 0" 2' 6"
22' 3' 3" 2' 9"
24' 3' 6" 3' 0"
26' 4' 0" 3' 6"
28' 4' 3" 3' 9"
30' 4' 6" 4' 0"

 

If installing a garage door what leg height would I need?

If installing garage door centered on the end (width of building) the leg height can be the same height as the garage door. If installing two garage doors on the end (depending on width of building) the legs need to be 1 foot taller than the doors. If installing a garage door on the side (length of building) the legs need to be I foot taller than the door
