Much like a patio cover, a carport cover can be an attractive and functional addition to your home. Adding a carport cover should be done correctly with attention to detail. Paradise Builders has the experience to help you install your carport cover while ensuring your home remains attractive and undamaged.
Our carports are custom made of heavy duty steel framing. This generally consists of 4”x4” square steel posts and either 8” or 10” cee purlins. The framing comes standard in “red iron” color but can be painted as well. The roof can be made out of 3 or 4 inch foam insulated aluminum panels or 26 gauge steel panels. The insulated panels come in a variety of colors and are self guttered. You can order panels with conduit to install light fixtures or ceiling fans in them. With the thickness of the foam, potential damage from a hail storm would not be visible from underneath. A more simple roof would be the steel panels, typically R-panel. These are not insulated and screw directly into the steel framing. It will still provide cover for your vehicles and is generally a less expensive option than the insulated panels.
Carports are simply constructed and are set in 2’ piers. Due to variances in local building codes, professional installation will ensure your carport is properly installed and anchored. Adding a carport cover keeps your vehicle out of direct sun and weather. As a result, it is often easier to get going on bad weather days. In addition, carports offer fantastic protection when a garage is not available.
