Incredibly Affordable Single Car Carports

For families on the move, the family car is everything. It’s the machine that gets the kids to school in the morning. It carries you the long miles of your morning commute to work. It picks up the slack after school ball games and on weekend trips to the grandparents. But it’s also a significant investment that requires plenty of care to keep in working order. And a big part of that process is keeping your vehicle out of the elements.

Harmful UV rays beat down on cars and trucks each day, damaging their clear coats, fading paint, and cracking plastic components. It can also dry out important rubberized parts like hoses and connectors, leading to severe issues with the internal workings of your vehicle.

So, how do you protect the family vehicle from the elements? Sure, you can go with a cheap, temporary option like a car cover or a tarp, but that’s not a permanent solution. However, a single-car carport would be a fantastic, long-lasting option that can keep your vehicle safe no matter the weather.

One car carports are a great way to protect your vehicles from inclement weather conditions. At Boss Buildings, we have a wide range of durable and affordable single car carports available that are delivered and installed for FREE in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. We also offer flexible RTO and financing plans to make your purchase hassle-free. To make a small deposit for your custom carport, call our experts today at (336) 673-3065.

The Dimensions of a Single-Car Carport

In most cases, a one car carport is roughly 12 feet wide and 20 feet long, offering just enough space to house your vehicle while still providing a few extra feet for comfort. However, a single-car carport is only one size in a large assortment of metal structures. These vehicle covers can be as large as necessary and are capable of being built for boats, RVs, motorhomes, and just about anything you can think up.

Roof Style Options for Single-Car Carports

When you purchase a single-car carport, several roofing types are available, each with its own aesthetics, price, and capabilities. These roof systems include:

  1. Regular Roofs : Regular roofs are a great economical option, with rounded corners and horizontally placed panels. It’s an excellent choice for those in regions that see minimal wind and rainfall totals each year.
  2. A-Frame Roofs : An A-frame roof, also known as a boxed-eave design, is a mid-level option that looks more like the roof you’d find on a traditional home. It features overhanging awnings, a sharp roof peak, and horizontal paneling. Additionally, this design is great for areas that regularly experience high winds but minimal rainfall.
  3. Vertical Roofs : Vertical roofs are our premium design option, combining the best features of the A-frame roof with vertically oriented paneling. This clever design allows rain, debris, and snow to easily fall away from your building, keeping it safe with minimal need for repairs.

Determining Your 1-Car Carport’s Size

When purchasing a carport, it’s crucial to know what size structure you’ll need. You don’t want to buy such a significant investment only to find out that it doesn’t provide the room you need. That’s why you’ll want to take the time to carefully estimate how much square footage you’ll need.

  1. What Vehicles Do You Own? : Vehicles come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from large trucks and SUVs to small compacts and everything in between. And while a 12×20 single-car carport might offer enough room for a single smaller or mid-sized car, it might not be large enough for bigger SUVs or trucks.
  2. How Many Cars Do You Have? : A 12×20 carport is a perfect size to comfortably house a single vehicle, but if you have multiple family cars, you might need a larger size.
  3. How Are You Going to Use Your Carport? : Is your new carport solely for protecting your vehicle? Or will you use it to keep equipment and tools dry as well? Knowing how you intend to use your structure will give you a good idea of how much space you’ll require.
  4. Future Plans : Will you be purchasing more vehicles in the future? You’ll want to know how your needs might change, requiring more room to expand.

Luckily, Boss Buildings offers a wide selection of carport sizes to suit any need or purpose. From single-car carports to enormous, enclosed garages, we do it all!

Customization Options for Single-Car Carports

One of the best aspects of our metal carports is their customizability. You’ll be able to customize it all, from the paneling to the trim and everything in between. In fact, let’s take a deeper look at just a few of the customization options available to you.

  1. Size : The size of your structure will dictate much of how it can be used. And luckily, you’ll have free reign to design your carport as small or as large as you need. From single-car carports to enormous parking areas for RVs and motor coaches, we’ve got you covered.
  2. Roof Styles : You’ll be able to choose between several roofing options, each with its own capabilities and aesthetics. These include:
    • Regular Roofs : A regular roof is a fantastic option that features rounded edges and horizontal paneling. It’s well-suited for regions with minimal wind and low rainfall totals.
    • A-Frame Roofs : An A-frame roof is a nice mid-tier choice that closely resembles the roof you’d find on a traditional home, with overhanging awnings, horizontal paneling, and a sharp roof peak. It’s a wonderful choice for regions that regularly experience high winds but minimal rainfall.
    • Vertical Roofs : Vertical roofs are our cream of the crop, with the advantages of the A-frame roof combined with vertically oriented panels. This engineering feat allows debris to easily slide away from your structure, keeping it cleaner for longer.
  3. Colors : Your building doesn’t have to be drab and lifeless! In fact, you’ll have a wide selection of colors to choose from! And if you prefer a more subtle approach, you can change the color of your trim, roofing, and even wainscoting, giving you a carte blanche to make the structure your own!
  4. Anchors : The anchor system for your structure will depend on your chosen foundation. For dirt foundations, auger-like anchors are screwed down into the soil to adhere to your structure. For asphalt foundations, spiked rods are used to anchor your building. However, for concrete foundations, bolts are drilled directly into the pad.
  5. 14 & 12 Gauge Framing : Most residential structures use 14-gauge framing as an industry standard. However, if you live in a region that regularly sees high winds or heavy snow, you may want to upgrade to our thicker, 12-gauge framing.
  6. 29 & 26 Gauge Paneling : Much like the framing of your structure, you can also change the thickness of your paneling. For regions with violent weather, thicker 26-gauge steel might be a more suitable option.
  7. Certifications : Certification is a standardized procedure that ensures a structure can withstand the wind, snow, and seismic loads of a given region. Most localities will require your building to be certified before issuing a building permit.

The Many Ways You Can Use Carports

Whether you’re protecting your family vehicles or simply keeping your essential tools safe and dry, there are many ways to use a carport. Let’s take a look at a few inventive ways you can use these incredible structures.

  • RV Cover : If you’re the proud owner of a new recreational vehicle, a carport is a great way to keep it dry and out of the elements. They can be built to any size and are perfect for your new RV!
  • Storage Units : Did you know that you can customize your carport with walls, windows, and doors? Enclosed structures make excellent storage units, allowing you to keep your most valuable possessions safe year-round.
  • Agricultural Use : Carports are excellent on the farm, where they’re regularly used for livestock shelters, hay covers, and storage buildings.
  • Playgrounds : Playgrounds are a great way for children to enjoy the outdoors. However, the weather isn’t always cooperative. But with a carport cover over your play area, kids will be able to enjoy recreation no matter the weather outside.

How to Choose the Right 1-Car Carport

Purchasing a new carport is a big journey! That’s why it’s so important to choose the carport that’s right for you and your family. But how does one determine the ‘right’ carport? Well, we can help with that!

  1. Understand Your Local Ordinances and Building Codes : This is a no-brainer. Some localities have strict restrictions on how large or small structures can be. You’ll want to check with your local authorities to determine what size carport you can build before you start the buying process!
  2. Think About the Climate : Are you living in a region that regularly experiences severe weather? If you do, you may want to consider enclosing your metal structure or choosing reinforcements that will allow it to hold up to the weather.
  3. Choose the Right Metal Building Dealer : There are many metal building dealers out there, and not all are created equal. So you want to pick a company with a history of providing premium products and excellent customer service. Doing so can save you a ton of trouble and headache in the long run.

One Car Carports Prices

Boss Buildings is proud to offer a wide selection of carports and metal buildings at affordable prices. However, these prices are subject to change based on a number of factors, including:

  1. Raw Steel Prices : Raw steel is a valuable commodity that can vary in price based on demand, shipping costs, and logistics. In turn, these fluctuations can affect the final cost of your structure.
  2. Customizations : The number of customizations you pick for your structure can affect its final price. Additional components, reinforced panels, and farming will all require additional steel.
  3. Manufacturers Location : Boss Buildings uses a network of manufacturers to ensure you can get a quality carport or metal building no matter where you call home. However, different manufacturers may charge different prices, ultimately increasing the cost of your structure.
  4. Installation Location : Some install sites are located in remote or hard-to-reach areas. In this case, installation crews may be required to charge additional fees for the equipment and manpower needed to complete the job.
