Metal carports are one of the most convenient and versatile steel structures we sell at Global Carport. These structures are perfect for providing shelter suitable for both the urban setting (vehicles, bicycles, boats, RVs, and other valuable property) to the rural setting (as an open-sided barn, a shelter for horses and livestock, or storage for hay and other crops). With easy access in and out, the convenience of a metal carport is only surpassed by its durability.
At Global Carport, we have worked hard to become the best dealer for prefab metal carports in the United States. We are committed to providing metal carports to suit every need by focusing on quality, durability, and versatility.

Our Most Popular Metal Carports
For those who want a versatile steel carport that will provide protection from the weather for their vehicles, possessions, or whatever else they can dream up, these are some of the best we offer at Global Carport.
How to Choose the Right Roof for Your Metal Carport
The most important factor in choosing a roof for steel carports is the weather in your local area. At Global Carport, our experienced building experts will help you choose between a regular roof, an A-frame, or if you live in an area with more extreme weather, a vertical roof.
Vertical Roof Carports
If you regularly have to deal with extreme weather where you live, like heavy winds or huge amounts of snowfall every winter, a vertical roof metal carport is the best choice by far. Visually similar to the A-frame roof but with one critical difference: the durable steel panels are aligned vertically rather than horizontally, causing snow and debris to slide right off rather than accumulating and potentially causing damage.
A-Frame Roof Carports
An A-frame roof for your metal carport provides a style and durability upgrade over the regular roof. Featuring the same horizontal panels as a regular roof, it also adds box eave trim on the sides and comes to a triangular peak rather than a rounded top. Just like the regular roof, it is recommended mainly for those with milder weather.
Regular Roof Carports
The simplest and most cost-effective steel carport roof is our most popular – regular roof. These roofs are great for protecting equipment and vehicles from the weather, rain, or shine. The roof has horizontally aligned panels and a rounded shape with the rugged durability of our high-quality steel. Perfect for places with fairly mild weather.
More Than Just Somewhere to Park Your Car: Creative Applications for Prefab Metal Carports
At Global Carport, we believe that customization and imagination work hand in hand to finding the right steel carport solution for everyone. Aside from just protecting vehicles or animals, here are five unique ways customers use our versatile carport buildings:
Outdoor Kids Play Area
With a little bit of customization, you can use one of our metal carports as an awesome shelter to protect the kids while they get some fresh air. Whether they want to draw chalk art on the ground without it getting washed away or just have a place to skateboard safely, a carport can help.
If you’ve got an outside dog or cat that you want to provide with a bit of shelter, a prefab steel carport can be the perfect solution. Maybe you have a couple of horses and a nice field but no barn? Use a custom carport to provide them a comfortable spot to relax out of the sun!
If you’re the kind of person who loves hosting a good barbecue, you’ve surely experienced the frustration of a sudden change in the weather and those first annoying raindrops splattering on the ground. The solution? A custom steel carport setup as your outdoor cooking and eating center!
Got a nice patio behind your house that you can’t use whenever it’s too sunny or too rainy? Use an open-sided steel carport as a covering and take back your patio! Plus, you get to enjoy the music of rain on a steel roof!
Outdoor Storage Area
Is your utility shed awkwardly full? Patio chairs piled on top of the lawnmower, gardening tools buried somewhere in the back, and an inflatable pool sitting on top just waiting to have a hole poked in it? Consider a custom metal carport as a way to reclaim that space and discover what’s buried under all that stuff!
What Do You Want Out Of Your Carport?
By now, you may have realized that versatility is one of our core values at Global Carport. In that spirit, we’ve got a range of customization options available so you can design the perfect metal carport for any situation. Our customization options include:
We’ve got a variety of standard sizes available, but we’re also able to design a metal carport that perfectly fits the space you have in mind. Regardless of if you need it wider, taller, or longer, we’ve got you covered!
Whatever the weather where you are, and however, you want your steel carport to look, we’ve got a roof for you. Our team of design experts will help you decide whether a regular, A-frame, or vertical roof is the best choice for you.
Mobile anchors can really improve stability if your new metal carport isn’t going to be set up on a concrete pad. We have multiple options available to make sure you don’t have to worry about a thing when high winds strike.
The gable on your metal carport is the triangular part that is directly under the sloped roof but above the eave line. Global Carport gables are made of the highest quality materials to ensure they last for years to come.
J-Trim is the lighter gauge metal that we use to finish up your steel structure. You can spot it around the openings and where surfaces intersect.
12- & 14- Gauge Steel Framing
The standard thickness of the metal used for the frame and roof of your metal carport is measured using the gauge system. We offer a standard 14- gauge framing plus the option to upgrade to the thicker, stronger 12- gauge option.
26- & 29- Gauge Roofing
We have two different gauges of roofing available, our standard 29- gauge roofing and an upgraded 26- gauge roofing material if you want to make sure your carport is as durable as possible and ready for any weather.
Your custom metal carport is going to be one of the first things people see when they pull into your driveway, so you want to make sure it looks as good as it performs. We’ve got 13 different color options to select from at Global Carport:
- Barn Red
- Slate Blue
- Quaker Grey
- Pewter Grey

Is it Necessary to get your Metal Carport Certified?

We offer a fully certified package option if you are in an area that requires you to submit blueprint drawings to your local building department. The package includes certification of the wind rating up to 140 mph and the capability of handling a 30-psf snow load. Additionally, all our certified carports have additional corner braces, a durable anchoring system, and are constructed with 12- gauge steel.
