Two Car Carports

It can be difficult for families that are always on the move to nail down the smaller, important things in life – like protecting your cars. These crucial machines are the backbone of many homes, yet they’re often left outside exposed to the sun’s harsh rays. This UV light can eat through clear coats, fade paint jobs, and crack and dry out important plastic or rubberized components. But it doesn’t have to be that way! That’s precisely why you need a two-car carport to protect your vehicles and essential possessions.

A two-car carport is a fantastic way to keep your family cars and trucks safe from the elements. These sturdy, long-lasting structures are designed to keep vehicles safe from rain, snow, debris, and anything nature can conjure. So, if you’ve been looking for a storage solution to protect your family cars, you’ve come to the right place!

How Wide is a 2-Car Carport?

When you purchase a custom metal carport, you’ll have plenty of options available to you in terms of size. Most two car carports are designed to comfortably house one to two small to medium-sized vehicles. A general rule of thumb for this is that you'll need 18 to 20 feet of width for compact cars. This provides enough room to comfortably open vehicle doors. You may need more room for larger vehicles, such as trucks or SUVs. For these vehicles, you will want to choose a structure at least 24 feet wide. In addition to planning for your vehicle's size, building your carport a few feet larger than you initially arranged will also do wonders for giving you more space.

Roofing Options for Double Car Carports

One of the most important aspects of any carport will be its roof. After all, it keeps moisture, dirt, and sunlight from beating on your cars and trucks. And when you purchase a double car carport, you’ll be able to choose between several roofing styles, each with its own aesthetics and capabilities. Let’s take a deeper look into these roofing styles:

  1. Regular Roof : A regular roof is a roofing system typically used for carports, with horizontal paneling and rounded corners. It’s an excellent economical choice designed to work well in regions that experience minimal rain and wind.
  2. A-Frame Roofs : Also known as a boxed-eave roof, A-frames are a tremendous mid-tier option for carports in regions with high winds but little rainfall. These roofs look more like the type you’d find on a traditional stick-built building, with overhanging awnings and horizontal paneling.
  3. Vertical Roofs : A vertical roof combines the best features of the A-frame roof with vertically oriented panels. This engineering feat allows rain, snow, and general debris to fall away from your structure, minimizing the need for maintenance or repairs. Vertical roofs are considered the best match for regions that regularly see violent wind and rainfall.

The Right Materials Make the Best Carports

Carports have been around for about as long as vehicles have been on the road. Typically, these open structures were built from brick or wood, but steel has become the go-to solution in modern times due to its strength and durability.

Metal carports are precisely engineered for quick construction, making them capable of being constructed in a fraction of the time compared to wooden alternatives.

Customization Options for Two Car Carports

When you purchase a double car carport from Boss Buildings, you’ll have a wide range of customization options that give you the power to make your structure fit your precise needs. You’ll be able to change or adjust your:

  1. Building Size : No matter what sized building you need, we’ve got you covered. With a wide array of carport dimensions, you’ll surely find a structure that’s the perfect fit for you and your family.
    • Roof Styles : When you purchase a steel carport, you’ll have the ability to pick a roofing style that works for you. These include:
    • Regular Roofs : Regular roofs are our most affordable option, with rounded corners and horizontal paneling. This roofing type works well in most mild climates that have minimal wind and rainfall totals.
    • A-Frame Roofs : An A-frame roof is a fantastic mid-level option that features overhanging awnings, a sharp roof peak, and horizontal panels. If you live in a region with high winds but low rainfall totals, an A-frame might be right for you!
  2. Vertical Roofs : This roofing type is our premium option, with overhanging awnings combined with vertical paneling. It’s a great choice for keeping debris off your roof and is specially built to handle high winds and heavy rainfall.
  3. Color : Say goodbye to dull, lifeless metal buildings! Now, you can choose the color for almost every element of your carport or metal building. You’ll have free reign to make a structure truly yours, from the roofing to the trim and everything in between.
  4. Anchor Systems : While not necessarily a custom feature, the anchor system for your structure will depend heavily on its foundation. For dirt foundations, auger-like anchors are screwed into the soil. For asphalt, spiked rods keep your building in place. And for concrete foundations, we’ll use specialized bolts drilled directly into the concrete.
  5. 14- & 12-Gauge Framing : Most residential structures use 14-gauge framing as the industry standard. However, if your building is regularly facing off against high winds and snow, you may want to reinforce it with thicker 12-gauge steel.
  6. 29- & 26-Gauge Roofing : Much like the framing of your structure, you’ll also be able to choose the thickness of your roofing panels. Most buildings come standard with 29-gauge paneling, but for more heavy-duty buildings, upgrading to the thicker 26-gauge roofing panels might be a sound choice.
  7. Certifications : Certification is a system where a structure is tested to ensure that it can hold up against a particular region’s wind, snow, and seismic loads. In most localities, structures will be required to have certification to receive a building permit. Additionally, if you want your facility to be included in a future sale appraisal, it must be certified.

The Many Ways to Use Double Car Carports

Believe it or not, two car carports aren’t just for protecting your vehicles! These structures are highly versatile and work well in many applications. Don’t believe us? Take a look at just a few inventive ways these carports are used.

  1. Workshops : If you have a hobby, side hustle, or craft you like, there’s no better way to give it its own space than with a carport. You can even design it with walls, doors, and windows to transform your building into a fully-functional workshop!
  2. Storage Space : Whether you’re keeping the family lawnmower out of the rain or protecting the wood for winter, carports are your most cost-efficient answer. These structures offer the space, flexibility, and strength to keep your most valued possessions safe year-round.
  3. Gardening Storage : Do you have a green thumb? Are you not sure how to store all your soil, fertilizer, plants, and equipment? We have the perfect solution for you! A double carport is an excellent choice for keeping your gardening tools safe and dry.
  4. Event Planning : From birthdays to summer picnics and everything in between, a carport is a great way to keep everyone dry and cool to enjoy the festivities.
  5. Patio Covers : Not only are carports an excellent option for protecting your cars, but they can also be installed over patio areas and porches to provide shade for family and friends.

Certified vs. Non-Certified Carports: What’s the Deal?

When shopping for a carport or metal building, you’ll hear the term ‘certification’ bandied about. It’s an important aspect of the process that proves the structure you’re purchasing is up to the job. Sure, you can save money by buying a non-certified carport, but you may end up with a structure that’s not up to snuff when Mother Nature comes calling.

Most local building authorities require a steel structure to be certified before issuing a building permit. So, if you plan for your carport to be a permanent fixture of your property, you’ll want to make sure it’s certified.

The Price for Two Car Carport Kits

Boss Buildings is proud to offer a wide array of carports and metal buildings for every job and any purpose. However, the prices for these structures often change based on several circumstances. These factors include:

  1. Raw Steel : The price for raw steel fluctuates regularly based on consumer demand, shipping costs, oil prices, and logistical anomalies.
  2. Customizations and Reinforcements : When you purchase a carport from Boss Buildings, you’ll have a wide range of customization options at your fingertips. However, these customizations and reinforcements often require additional steel, thus raising the final price for your structure.
  3. Manufacturer Prices : Boss Buildings uses a network of manufacturers to ensure that you can get a quality structure no matter where you call home. However, some manufacturers’ prices vary, which can affect your carport’s cost depending on where you live.
  4. Installation Site : If your installation site is in a region that’s difficult for installation crews to reach, it may be charged for the additional equipment and manpower needed to complete the job.
