When you order one of our metal RV covers, you get a choice of three roof styles: regular, boxed eave, and vertical. There is an advantage to choosing a vertical roof for your RV: Metal carports with this type of roof don’t experience snow buildup. Because of the roof’s vertical sheeting, the snow slides off the side before it can accumulate. The regular and boxed-eave styles have sheeting that runs horizontally across the length of the building.

Here at Carport Central, you can find hundreds of metal carports online as well as metal garages. Metal carports can have open sides, open ends, or be partially closed. As they are without walls or have partially enclosed walls (side panels or cut panels), steel carports are also usually less expensive than the metal garages in our online shop. Our helpful building specialists will take your needs and budget into consideration when suggesting which steel building best suits your needs.


Did you know that adding a high-quality metal garage building to your property could increase the value of your home? One study conducted by Florida State University concluded that the addition of a new garage could add as much as 13% to your home value. Of course, as is true with any home improvement project, the quality of the garage building will go a long way in determining what sort of equity gains you will realize over time.
The regular-style roof is rounded on the sides with a barn-like shape. This is the most economical option for a metal building roof. The leg height on the regular garage packages is 8 feet, but at the top of the bend on the leg, it is 1 foot taller. This gives you 9-foot legs with a 9x8 garage door. The boxed-eave and vertical metal building packages come standard with 9-foot legs fully enclosed with a 9x8 garage door. The metal buildings for sale that have a boxed-eave roof have an A-frame gable roof with a 6-inch overhang on both sides. The vertical style is also built with an A-frame roof and has a 6-inch overhang on both sides. All of our steel buildings for sale have a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. The sheeting on a vertical-style roof runs up and down, allowing the snow to slide off of the building so you won’t have to rake the roof. Also, there’s bracing attached under a vertical roof to secure the sheeting. This adds strength to the structure of a vertical garage. When you look at the boxed-eave and regular roofs, you’ll notice that the sheeting runs horizontally over the length of the roof.

Carport kits are also available in any size that best fits your needs, that means carports and garage kits big and small no matter the size. From cars and trucks to boat docks, our portable carports fit the bill and keep you covered. Our custom car ports have even been used to cover tractors, dumpsters and rock piles in work yards! While you could easily buy car port plans and go through the process of building your own carports, working through carports and more you receive a high quality product that can comes with a 20 year steel warranty.

Modular: A modular building is a structure where the materials are designed and fabricated offsite and then transported to the project location where each part is assembled. Many businesses may choose this method as it allows a larger building to be built more quickly than a traditional building given the parts have already been cut and designed to the proper specs. For the same reasons, it is also an efficient way to build a home.
At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we have RV shelters for sale made with sturdy metal sheets that wrap around the support structure to create a roof and two partial sides or a roof and one full side. Carports that are partially enclosed provide ventilation while still protecting your property. Another benefit of our partially enclosed RV carports is that you’ll have easy access to your vehicle to clean it, load it, or just climb in for a quick inspection. But if you prefer, we also have affordable RV storage that is entirely enclosed.
