The most common reasons to choose an a-frame are to match the aesthetic of your home or main building and to resist heavy weather. In particular, the sloped edges of the a-frame roof mean snow, rain, and other debris will often slide right off.
A-frames are also some of the easiest types of buildings to construct, which can save you time and money. Their ease of construction and wide use also means we can modify your a-frame carport to match any aesthetic or design specification you have.
We can construct your a-frame carport to any specifications you require. Perhaps the most important decision you’ll need to make is what kind of roof to go with.
This decision will depend primarily on how much you plan to spend on the unit, but also on the weather in your area as well as what you’ll be storing in the unit.
If you’re looking for the most stable and longest-lasting structure possible, a vertical roof will provide the stability necessary for long-term reliability. However, the lesser cost of the boxed eave roof will make it the better choice for some who aren’t looking to spend too much money on the structure.
Much like with the roof, your choice of whether to add side panels and complete your garage or stick with the simpler carport design should depend on finances and weather.
An open carport is simple to construct which makes it less expensive. This could be more pragmatic if you are not storing anything particularly valuable or vulnerable. An open carport is essentially the frame of a garage supporting your chosen roof.
Naturally, the additional panels and labor required to complete a garage will cost more in the short term. However, a fully enclosed garage is the only choice for complete weather protection as well as safety from theft or prying eyes.
We can turn an open carport into a closed garage with just the addition of a few panels. Be sure to check out our barn builder tool so you can create the best design for your needs.
