The industry leader in metal Quonset Hut Carports
When you invest in a vehicle, you want to do everything you can to protect it. A SteelMaster metal carport is an ideal solution for customers who want a quality, custom-engineered structure that’s easy to put together and cost-effective.
Carport Applications and Sizes
Strength and Durability
One of the most popular benefits of purchasing a steel carport kit is its amazing quality and strength. Instead of wasting money on maintenance or replacing it after a storm hits your area, you will only have to build a SteelMaster carport one time and it will last for decades.
Unlike a cheap DIY carport made from other materials, a steel carport is able to survive in all kinds of weather. It will not rot, warp, buckle, twist, or crack.
These structures are coated with Galvalume Plus, which is a zinc and aluminum mixture that resists the extreme heat of the sun and protects the steel from rusting or warping.
|Wooden Carport||Tin/Aluminum Carport||Steel Carport|
|Warping & Buckling Protection||No||No||Yes|
|Twisting & Cracking Protection||No||No||Yes|
|Snow & Wind Load Strength||No||No||Yes|
Our metal custom carports are also corrosion-resistant, fire-resistant, and cannot be destroyed by termites. SteelMaster’s DIY metal carports are engineered to survive some of Mother Nature’s most deadly weather including hurricanes, tornadoes, heavy snow storms, hail, and even fire.
Many of the other carports on the market are built with thin materials that are vulnerable to strong winds and heavy loads.
However, SteelMaster’s experienced design specialists will calculate the gauge of steel you need based on the size and configuration of your carport and your location’s wind and snow load requirements.
The possibilities for SteelMaster metal carports are endless. No matter what needs to be covered, trust our carports to protect your most valuable possessions.
Metal Carport Applications
The most common carport use is in the name itself–car storage. Whether you have one car, two cars, or more, our design specialists can help you decide the size you’ll need to keep your vehicle safe.
SteelMaster’s durable RV storage covers are some of the strongest structures in the industry and they provide the best protection for one of your greatest investments. Our DIY RV carport can protect your motorhome from being damaged by falling trees or large branches, harmful rays from the sun, or dangerous hail storms. Our RV storage covers can also accommodate additional vehicles if more storage is necessary. We also provide RV garages as an option.
Our carports can be installed on a dock as a boat slipcover or the arches can be mounted to a shipping container to create a shipping container carport. These are popular applications for private boat owners or shipyard and commercial customers.
