Metal carports will provide your car with overhead protection. This type of canopy cover is great if you want something fast and simple to protect your car from sun or weather damage like overhead hail or fallen branches.

Discovery Buildings offers a wide range of carports that can be customized to your needs and to the space you have available. We make it easy to design your carport online.

Plus, with free installation and normally fast delivery, you can cut out the middleman and get your building delivered and constructed in no time. Each carport is created with certified engineered drawings to ensure the most structurally sound and durable carports, guaranteed to stand the test of time and ensure many long years of safety and protection.

We use only factory trained and insured installers to ensure each carport installation is done right the first time, eliminating the need for later modification. The crews we work with are experts and will provide you with top-notch service from installation to post-job cleanup.

All metal carports need to be placed on a solid level surface (within about 3 inches) so that the structure is not compromised. The new carport will be installed on site and must comply with your local building codes and property setbacks. In the context of these simple requirements, metal carports are a great solution if you need to protect your vehicle from the elements, and our expertise in the design and installation makes this choice even easier to make.

Carport Roof Styles

VERTICAL CARPORTS

This style includes vertically installed roof panels that help to prevent dirt and other debris from building up on your roof.

BOXED EAVE CARPORTS

Similar in appearance as the more expensive Vertical roof however, the roof panels run horizontally. Because of the roof panels running horizontally then tend to collect more debris and will need more maintenance effort to keep clean.

REGULAR CARPORTS

Our horizontal panel regular roof carports are the most economical that you can buy to protect your car from the outdoors. With a curved roof style, they are simple, yet highly effective protection.

 

Common Questions

Do I need a permit to build a metal carport?

Yes, in most cases. Permit requirements vary from one municipality to the next, but many local governments require a building permit to install a carport. Building permit fees vary by location.

How long do metal carports last?

Our metal carports are durable and can last for dozens of years. Each of our American-made carports comes with a 10 or 20-year rust warranty and a one-year workmanship warranty.

What size carport do I need for a car? For two cars?

Metal carport sizes can be customized to your needs. To determine the right carport size, consider the following:

  • How large is your current vehicle?
  • Will you possibly purchase a larger vehicle in the future?
  • Do you need a single-car carport or a two-car carport?
  • Will your metal carport be large enough for an RV, boat or farm equipment?

A 12-foot-wide carport can fit a single car. For two cars, we recommend at least a 20-foot width but 22’ or 24’ will offer better protection to your vehicle when opening doors.

We are in the process of using Discovery Buildings for our 20' X 26' Metal Building. The process has been seamless and working with Scott has been a pleasure we have had to make three revisions based on unforeseen circumstance and each time Scott has been super responsive getting the change order in place. Based on our experience we would use them again!!

Don Tait is very well versed on what it takes to put in a building. One of the first thing he told me was to go to county zoning and see what they would let me do. Turns out in "rural residential" your outbuildings can be no larger than 50% of your air conditioned living space. (a window unit on my back porch saved me) I couldn't go above 1000 sq. ft. Don helped me fill out the permit applications in Carolina Carports name.. All in all it was a good experience in spite of dodging hurricanes and such. No problems dealing with Carolina Carport. Building is a good value for the money I spent.

We went back and forth on so many designs. I think DB should have been exhausted. But they took care of us. We haven’t had any issues with the building either. We even spoke to them about some of their bad reviews to get a context. I can’t speak for the entire company but Blake took care of us %100. We will be contacting them in the future for some more buildings as well.-Austin

Competitive pricing and fast response. Devon was brilliant to work with and had answers for all my questions within a day. This was a new idea and concept for me. I have never had to hire someone to build before, much less over the phone, and his patience with the questions I had was exceptional. I appreciate what they did and cannot be more pleased with the results. I will definitely come back to them when I add a second building.
