After ordering my steel carport, building or garage, how long will be before my scheduled installation?
It takes anywhere from 3-5 weeks depending on where you are located and the size of the structure. We work very hard to get your order built and installed at your location as soon as possible.
Can adjustments be made to my steel carport, building or garage if the ground is not level?
Although we prefer the ground to be perfectly level, our installers can adjust the legs up or down 2”-3” at the bottom on the base rail if the ground is a bit un-level. We do ask that your ground be level before our installers show up on the day of your installation.
Can I add options on to my steel carport, building or garage once its been installed?
Yes, but there will be a return trip delivery fee for options under $1000. Our sales consultant will be sure to go over these options before you order.
Can I install our steel carport, building or garage myself and is there a discount?
Yes. In most areas. Check with your sales consultant about the discounted rate on your order. We will drop off the materials needed and also send detailed instructions to help you through the installation process. (Be sure to ask if your area qualifies for a "drop off only")
How will my steel carport, building or garage be anchored when it is installed?
All "Non-Certified" carports have rebar pin anchors for ground installations. If you choose, you can upgrade to mobile home anchors for ground or asphalt anchors for an additional charge. If the structure is going on slab, footing or stem wall we will use concrete wedge anchor bolts to secure the structure. If you choose to have a Certified carport, building or garage on the ground, you will need to purchase mobile home anchors. Our engineers will determine how many anchors you will need to meet your areas wind and/or snow loads.
Is it required for me to have a concrete slab to order a steel carport, building or garage?
No! We offer mobile home or screw anchors and asphalt anchors that can be certified for installation on dirt, gravel or asphalt.

What is the angle or pitch of the roof on my steel carport, building or garage?
The standard "roof pitch" is approximately a 3/12 pitch. This roof pitch will vary a little depending on the width of your carport, building or garage.
What is the maximum leg height I can have on my steel carport, building or garage?
We can Install up to 12' leg height standard and special engineered 13' & 14’ leg heights. (Be sure to discuss the leg heights you require with your sales consultant)
What size should the concrete slab be for my steel carport, building or garage?
The concrete slab should be a minimum of 6” larger each side and end than the overall unit size. The length of the base rail is always 6" shorter on each end or overall 1' shorter than the roof line of the structure. For example: If you order a 12' x 21' carport, the foot print is 12' x 20' So your concrete would need to be poured at 12' 6" x 20' 6"
What would be the center or peak height of my steel carport, building or garage?
The peak height could range from 3'-6' higher than the leg height you chose depending on the "roof style" and width of your structure.
