The company carries two basic types of carport structures. certified or uncertified. with the main difference being that certified structures are larger and specifically designed by an engineer. Certified structures are engineered to withstand a certain amount of wind and snow load and are backed by a 20 year limited warranty. Uncertified structures on the other hand. only come with a 30 day workmanship warranty.
The other option for choosing a carport is a fully-metal design. All portable carports are designed with a galvanized steel frame to prevent corrosion when exposed to water for longer periods of time. and in the case of a fully metal carport. the roof is metal. as well. With a slightly peaked design. the roof made from galvanized steel is coated with silicon to last for several years. In fact. metal carports. on average. are designed to last twenty years before being replaced. As far as protecting a car or any vehicle underneath. the steel roof is naturally waterproof and UV resistant.
With these two basic options. carports have valance and enclosed styles. If the vehicle or investment is being stored for several months at a time. an enclosed carport has the necessary features. with polyethylene on all sides to provide full coverage. An enclosed style. in some cases. becomes a hindrance when moving a vehicle in and out of a shelter. and in such cases. a valance carport. one with a top and open sides. is ideal.
