10 Most Commonly Asked Questions
How long will it take to get my building delivered after I place an order?
Delivery times vary depending on your area, although it is generally 2-8 weeks from the time your order is received. To inquire about specific delivery times in your area, contact our office and speak with a customer service representative.
What are the dimensions of the building, outside to outside?
Our building measurements are width x length x height. For example: An 18’ x 21’ x 6’ building’s base frame size is 18’ x 20’ x 6’. Note that the measurements stated are the dimensions of the roof metal. It has a 6” overhang on each end so the bottom base rail frame is one foot shorter than the roof. The width is measured from the outside of the baserail to to the other outside of the baserail.

You should pour your cement exact to width and 1’ shorter in length.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is my carport anchored to the ground or dirt?
On non-certified units, 32” long rebar anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail. The anchors are driven into the ground with a sledgehammer for a secure hold. On certified units, double helix mobile home anchors are augured into ground and a bolt is inserted through pre-drilled holes in the side of the base-rail. The bolt is secured with a nut. Mobile home anchors are an optional upgrade for non-certified ground installations.
How is my carport anchored to my concrete slab?
Holes are drilled into your concrete slab. Wedge anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail of your unit into the holes in the concrete and fastened for a secure hold.
How is my unit anchored to asphalt?
On non-certified units, 32” long rebar anchors are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the base rail. A small hole is made in your asphalt and the anchor is driven into the ground with a sledgehammer into the asphalt. For certified units, mobile home anchors must be used.
How is my carport anchored to a wooden surface?
Lag bolts are inserted through pre-drilled holes in the carport base rails and screwed down into the wood surface for a secure hold.
Do I need to do any site preparation?
Remove anything out of the way that would impede the progress of the installation. Clearly mark the four corners of the carport location and level the site if it is unlevel.

All styles are, approximately 3:12 roof pitch.
Can I have a unit installed on a wood floor or deck?
Yes. Additional fees may apply.

We must be able to unload the truck and trailer near the boat dock without carrying materials over 50 feet or up/down steps. There must be a 3’ unobstructed access on all sides to the dock.

Does the price for the carport or building include installation?
As long as you are within our normal service area and your land is level, yes.
What roof styles do you offer and what are the features of each style?
We offer three roof styles:
Regular Style units have rounded corners and are considered the “basic” of carport designs. Acting as a founding product for all other designs, the regular style unit is typically the most economical and affordable product
Boxed Eave units are designed with an “A” frame roof truss and horizontal roof panels. This modern design has made this style unit one of the most popular available. An upgrade to Boxed Eave style is both stylish and affordable.
Vertical Roof units are designed with an “A” frame roof truss and vertical roof panels. Hat channel runs the length of the unit to cross brace the roof and provide a mounting point for the roof panels. This design helps to prevent weathering elements such as rain and snow from standing on your building. Vertical Roof units come standard with ridge cap and specially designed wider trim that gives the product a modern, finished appearance.
Can I order a custom sized unit?
Yes. For example you may need a unit that is 23’ wide x 24’ long. We will make it that size.
Do color choices add to the cost of my unit?
No, color choices are included in the cost. You may choose from any of our colors. You may choose one color for the roof, a different color for the trim, a different color for the sides and if a gable end is desired a different color for it, at no additional charge. You may also choose to make all of the colors the same on your unit.
Can I buy a carport or garage in a kit and assemble it myself?
Yes, units are available for drop-off only. All materials will be delivered to your location. No assembly instructions are provided. We highly recommend that you have your unit installed by the professional contactors.
What are certified buildings and why should I purchase one?
Certified buildings are engineered to meet a specific snow and/or wind load. Many areas, particularly in the northeast and along the coastal regions, require that the buildings meet a specific wind or snow load. You should be aware of your area’s requirements and purchase a structure that meets the wind and/or snow load requirements for your area. We service a wide territory and since requirements can change from city to county, it is your responsibility to know the requirements and to purchase a structure accordingly.
Do I have to pay sales tax?
You must pay sales tax unless you reside in a tax-free state or can provide a copy of your sales tax exemption. Federal and state governments are tax exempt.
