We have repeatedly said a carport is as good as the company who builds one. This is true…A good company will go to the best vendors for building materials and test their products. Good companies will visit the site prior to building and provide an engineer drawing that supports the current layout of the land. Good companies will also take the time to explain the processes of the build so you are aware of what the job will entail.
A great example of good companies sharing important information is determining if your carport will have welded posts or bolted posts. You may be wondering what the difference is. The importance of this fact is a bolted post will not last as long, causing a shorter lifespan for your carport.
Another important factor of carport building is the type of material will be used to cover the carport roof. Companies using anything thinner than 26 gauge panel may “seem” sturdy, but one heavy snowstorm and it could be goodbye carport roof!
What about carport posts? if a company is using cee-purlin posts, then the damage from a car’s impact will cause damages that could be devastating to your carport and any existing vehicles utilizing the structure. Solid steel posts are vital to the longevity of a carport!
