Certified Metal Carports

Depending on the county you live in, you may or may not have to certify your carport. Here at Get Carports, we provide certified steel carports to our dedicated customers throughout most of the continental United States. The difference between our non-certified and certified structures is that our certified units are installed with additional corner and snow braces, anchoring systems, and a stronger, thicker steel framing. And since certifications are based on our location, it is your responsibility to speak with your local building department about their requirements and building codes.



Benefits of Certified Carports

Benefits of Certified Carports

If your local building department doesn’t require you to certify your carport, that doesn’t mean you can’t. And other than their obvious benefits of being stronger and longer-lasting, there are several benefits to investing in a certified structure, including the following –

  • Durable
  • Long-Lasting
  • Fully Customizable
  • Versatile
  • Adaptable
Features of Certified Carports

Features of Certified Carports

Certified carports are specifically designed and engineered to meet and fulfill building codes that are required by your county. And because they have such specific designs, they include several features our other building styles do not. Let’s take a look below at some of these special features.

  • Higher wind and snow loads
  • Additional anchors
  • Additional braces
  • Thicker framing
  • Stronger, thicker sheeting

Certified vs. Non-Certified Carports

When compared to non-certified structures, those that are certified not only include additional framing pieces for extra protection and strength, but they are engineered to withstand more extreme weather conditions and meet your area’s requirements. And while non-certified structures are still very durable and reliable, they are typically installed in areas that do not experience high winds, heavy rainfall, or heavy snowfall.

Available Roof Styles at Get Carports

Before making a big decision like choosing the roof style of your structure, you need to know everything that is offered by each roofing system. There are three roof styles offered at Get Carports, including our vertical roofs, A-frame horizontal roofs, and regular roofs.

  • Vertical Roofs – Designed and installed with vertically aligned panels and additional framing pieces, the vertical roof design is the most durable, top-selling option offered in the metal building industry. While this roof style is engineered to withstand all climate types, it’s best suited for areas that are prone to extreme weather conditions.
  • A-frame Horizontal Roofs – Also known as a boxed-eave roof, the A-frame horizontal style is an excellent option for customers who live in warmer areas with some winds, but very light precipitation. The primary advantage of our A-frame horizontal roofs is being able to own an A-frame style structure without the cost of a vertical roof.
  • Regular Roofs – Out of the three available roof styles, the regular roofing system is the most economically built and priced. And due to its simple framing and horizontal paneling, it is most suitable for areas that only experience mild to moderate weather conditions.
