All structural steel metal components are NOT Created Equal !
All metal building components may seem to be the same, but they are definitely not. Smart metal buyers know what they are getting for their hard-earned money, and that less expensive metal is usually less expensive for a reason.
METAL PANEL THICKNESS OR GUAGE-
The metal thickness determines the panel's rigidity and strength. The higher the decimal number, the thicker the material.
|29 gauge||26 gauge|
|Prime||0.015" min||0.0185" min|
|Thrifty||0.0142" nom||0.018" nom|
The difference between a .0142 nom and a .015 min equates to 210 pounds more metal on a 40-square roof.
PANEL PROFILES OR TYPES OF PANEL COVERINGS - the metal panels are used to cover the metal frames and are available in several different shapes and sizes. The metal comes in a form of a large rolls and is ran though a series of rollers that custom makes the finished product designs.
It used to simple as only a couple of profiles where mostly used on most projects.
Today numerous types of various types of roof panels are being used. Various different manufactures used there own different types of various panel profiles so there are hundreds of different types of profiles being used today.
R- Panel, U-Panel, M-Panel, Corrugated Panel, AG Panel, CF Panel, AP Panel, 4 inch Rib Panel, N-Deck, Standing Seam, Locking Seam, Dur-a-lock and several more. Different suppliers has different options as these are custom built to spec building materials.

20X20 flat pan aluminum 2 Car carport canopy with an attached 14x 21 ft 10ft high fat pan RV canopy cover.
Today, there are numerous and various different types of building materials used in building any one canopy structure. There isn't a one type, size or style that fits all applications. In fact there are no two custom carports that are the very same. Every canopy project is different and that has to be determined before any prices can be giving for any one project. We have visit the project site first and talk to the customers to know how to build and what it is going to take to get the canopy project completed as we agree. Carports are the best alternative to a garage for these reasons:what
• Provide more ventilation
• Occupy less space
• Readily expandable
• Cost less
• Easily maintained
* Provides protection
Tired of running to the nearest canopy for cover every time there is a storm coming your way?
Permanent Carport Structures - are made from larger and heavier wooden or metal (Steel, Aluminum) building components for a reason. They are structurally engineered for use in a building designed to meet existing building code requirements. Any permanent structure can be attached to most existing structures or can be a standalone structure and must be attached to or anchored into cement pears. Permanent structures are safer, sturdier and longer lasting over time and during harsh weather conditions. Permanent structures is the only way to go...
Each carport system must consist of a frame system and its pole members a well as its top canopy covering and its related trim and accessories.
ABC does not sell these flimsy bend tube type of portable carport covers !

A very strong commercial grade structured steel oversized 25'ft wide X 20'ft projection double car carport canopy using 8" steel frame C-Beam & Purlins with 4" squire steel poles for its frame structure, Then using a 26ga steel low profile multi-ribbed canopy top cover and side trim panel covering with its gutter and downspouts system. These customers wanted a stronger carport structure because as they had an pervious experience with a lighter carports structure in there past that made a bunch of noise in the winds.
Not all Steel carports are created equal!
Before you spend your hard earned money on just anyone steel carport structure you should insist on one custom built by Carports of Oklahoma.
Ridged Red Iron / Steel carports are available in several gauge thickness and sizes. Steel is stronger then aluminum and provide a great options for many of our customers canopy frame requirement. A variety of C & I Beams, Purlin, Channel, Angle, Zee, Struts, Hat Channel, Tubing,
Prefabricated roof trusses are available in Red Oxide or Galvanized metal options for any cable or hip type of roof structures.
Structured Steel - Cee & I beams are available in various gauges and thickness depending on the open spans of the structure. Standard building codes do require larger beams used for larger open spans.
Carport structures also work well for horse shelters or equine loafing sheds, covers for travel trailers or fifth wheels and canopies for RV's as well as other application where shade and weather protection is needed...
Red Steel / Iron -
Cee Beam & Purlin Canopy frames
can be custom built to any style, size and standards for use as a carport or patio canopy structure.
Also referred to as Structural Steel, Red Steel / Iron
or Red Oxide Steel
and the top canopy can be covered with any type of multi rid panels of your choosing.
The Red Oxide is a premier sealer paint on the steel products to help prevent rust. The metal can be painted or put though a additional galvanized process which is referred to as Galvanized steel available in various sizes and gauges.
The ridge structural steel frame C and I beams members are available in different sizes from 2" to 24 inch's or high depending on its size and open spam of the structure. The larger the open span the larger the beams there must be. Steel can meet or exceed any local building code requirements.
Its not complicated a fully boxed carport canopy frame structure is the best !
Multi-Rib Panels - Ridge Steel canopy coverings - These panels are used in many industrial siding-roofing. metal buildings and carport applications. The look of the multi-rib covering panel provides is used in many pre-engineered metal building applications, Standard lengths are 10' or 20' 25 Ft lengths, but can be produced custom sizes up to 45' length and are available in various profiles designs. The thickness of these panels are available in different thickness such as 29 or 26 gauges thick. Color coating options and normally come with a 25 - 40 year color warranty. Some of these building panels are also now available as a insulated panel as well.
All colors are approximate
Welded or screwed together frames - Most carports canopies are screwed together - All steel frame canopy structures welded as an additional service option.
Galvanized Steel Carport Canopies -
Just like any "Red Iron" components but the galvanized structured steel structure members are used to build a more maintenance free weather resistant frame. The galvanized steel frame are silver in color that is very similar in color to a galvanized chain link fencing but the steel has been put though a additional coating process to help prevent rusting and making the need to paint the frame virtually non-existent even in the long run.
Plus I think the silver in color frame makes for a cleaner and nicer fit & finished structural steel carport frame.
Don't get confused by any bent tubular galvanized steel carport frames as opposed to a much heavier and stronger Cee Beam & Purlin boxed frame structures...
Aluminum Carports - Aluminum is a non-corrosive building material which has a high strength to weight ratio. These qualities make it attractive, weather proof and option in building a metal carport. Also, the non-corrosive nature of the metal enhances the beauty of the carport preventing it from decaying. As a light weight and durable material, aluminum can be a great alternative to stick built or steel structures. Features, colors, and styles have evolved over the years to give the consumers many choices. There are numerous designs and styles of a aluminum carport canopy structures and we use three different aluminum canopy building materials.
we use three different rolled forms of interlocking aluminum canopy pans. The rolled forms of the Flat-pans and W-pans being the lighter weight and more economical priced aluminum panel option. Then there is the thicker heavy duty extruded aluminum pans are also available. Each pan system components are locked together to form nice looking solid canopy top system that is then screwed into some type of canopy frame structure.
We also build with the aluminum cladded structural insulated panels (SIPS) that can make an attractive canopy option and is available in various sizes and color options.
There are various forms of pan styles, designs and thickness and they all can make a attractive aluminum canopy structure. Some can come in a pre-engineered structure but most are custom fabricated then constructed using proven building construction disciplines and techniques.

The longer the projection, the wider span, or the higher the carport canopy may need to be, the heavy the frame and the canopy materials should be to withstand the higher wind loads...
Freestanding Carports - A substantial number of carport customers also need their carport structure to be a freestanding unit. At Carport of OK we a build almost any type of carport structure to the customers wants and needs. Some freestanding structures may require more building components such as poles and beams
Pergola Style - Cedar wood 6X6 poles. 3 - car
30ftX20ft X10ft structure with a 26 gauge metal canopy top recently was built in Newalla, OK after the recent tornado which came though and leveled this house in Newalla. OK area.
Wood Carports - Carport of OK offers custom designed and installs stick / timber frames wooden carports of all shapes and sizes which can be attached to a existing roofline or makes a great freestanding carport structure. Not all customers looking for a carport are interested in a metal carport structure. There is nothing like the look of a nice rustic Cedar wood structure.
Wooden Carports provide customers the option to paint or stain their carport to blend with their home. Some people might like to extend the roof from there house to use as a carport. We are experts in wood stick framing as our parent company A Better Construction Co has been in the framing business for over thirty years and we can provide you with any type of wooden carport or patio design.
The main differences between a wooden carport structure is that metal allows for longer spans and less 1/4 inch per ft roof pitches then any wooden carports
Most wooden carports structures have at least a 3/12 or 4/12 pitch roof design so most wooden carports are a cable or hip roof designs which results in more lumber and various building materials needed. Some customers may want a wood carport frame and then put a metal or shingled cladded roof covering. We also install the newer SIP panels on top of various wooden carport frame structures as well. Almost anything is possible...
Some may want more then a carport and want an extensions of there house. Some want what is a called a Porte Cochere ? Porte cochere (pronounced "port-co-SHARE") It is a short portion of covered driveway, usually located at the front or the side of a house, under which cars can stop while the passengers get out and go into the home. An attached, drive under, covered, high end carport if you will.
See our Porte cochere section on our main web page at http://www.abetterconstructionco.com for more information.
Types of Carport Designs
Lean Too Design
Flat top design
Free standing carport design.
Cantilever, Semi Cantilever and T-frame designs.
Cable style or pitched roof.
Portable Carports - There is a huge difference between a light weight metal bent tubing (fence post) portable carport and a much heavier and stronger structural steel or aluminum carport structures. There are too many light weight flimsy under built so called carport structures that are available and sold on the open market today.
Most of time they are way over sold over Internet by an out of State provider and almost always installed by "a here today and gone tomorrow out of State sub-contactors installers without a any liability or workman comp insurance that are willing to cut corners. Most of the time the portable canopies are light weight and are anchored by a screw in ground mobile home anchor? Why would be need to move a carport?
Consumers might get confused by the various light weight round and squire bent tubular portable carport structures versa and a permanent structured steel carport structure. One sales slant is to make sure know that there carports are built out of 12 gauge metal. 12" of type of metal? There is a huge difference and no comparison between 12 ga steel "round or squire tubing" structure and a 12 gauge beam structure, With any type of structure the longer the open spans are the larger the beams will be required.
Most of the local metro cities will not issue any building permits for a portable type of carport structure. There for if you put one up they can make you take it down. Out in the more rural areas building regulation or code are unregulated.
Some tubular carports serves there purposes and some of the more expensive portable structures meets local building code requirements but most of the cheaper do not. The better built tubular carport structures will offer a design with a lot more reinforced tubing in the walls and a truss type of top canopy frame so they can withstand heavier snow loads but that does stop them from blowing away.Those type of portable structures cost a whole lot more then the ones you see on a street corner for $599 - $799 etc. Most municipalities require that any carport structure be anchored into a concrete pears that meets there own code requirement.
Almost all of those portable" carport canopies can't even be comparable to any type "permanent type" of carport structure" that meets local and national building code requirements, no matter what the retailer might say or claim. Don't be fooled.... Beware that most portable type canopy structures as they can become a flying UFO during one of our thunder storms or may be damaged in one form or the other with your hard earned expansive cars, trucks or RV under it? Who pays, You do!
Buyers beware of those of those so called "portable" type of carports / barns etc.
A RV / Barn structure that took flight during the El Reno tornado storm that also hit the South sides of OKC by the Will Rogers Airport. This structure was at SW 89th and the HE Baily turnpike area and ended up as a pile of scrap metal.
Why spend tens or hundreds of thousand on a car, boat or RV only to store it under a $795 or lower flimsy "blow away" portable carport? They are called portables as they where originally designed to cover hay out in a field from getting wet and move from one place to another. Who really needs to move a carport it should bolted to a cement pear. Someone got the bright ideal they could be sold as a carports so the market got flooded with them and some of then are higher priced. Some are only stand 5ft tall so you might knock your head on them getting out of your car. I've replace a lot of them. I might park me lawn mower under one or cover a dog kennel with one but not any vehicles, especially in Oklahoma !
Would you really fell safe about parking your vehicles under a structure that might blow away or even collapse under a server weather condition? Don't take the risks ,
Beware of what come in a box..
It has been our experience that we can provide a much stronger better looking carport structure option for your hard earned money that will last in the long run.
I'm hearing from a lot of customer on how the internet sellers are over promising and under deliver there products. Some have waited for long periods of time ( 6 months) to get there products and there still are get nothing but a runaround. It is because the out of State product providers want to get a several installations within the region before they can make it attractive enough for a installation contractor to come to the area and install them. There installers are going to be a hurry to get the job done and get onto the next install because they get paid by volume installs only. Most of the installers can't communicate because they don't even speak English. Got figure what type of installation your going to get.
Do it right the first time and you won't have to do it again !
Time has proven that a permanent type of carport structures custom built to local and standard building code requirements is the only way to go as they can withstand the test of time.

Rolled Formed Canopies W or Flat Pans -
A rolled pan type of carport structures have been used for several years. Each carport or patio cover has several interlocking pans that are lock together to form one large strong canopy structure. Each interlocking pan is formed by using coiled flat stock material and sending that though a machine with a series of rollers designed to bend the flat stock materials into the formed shapes.
Note: The flat stock materials used to form rolled formed pan designs can be of aluminum or a coated steel building materials and can be of different thickness.
All rolled formed pans are not equal as different manufactures may use there own shapes to form there own unique pan designs.
You can rely on a proven, quality product from an industry leader in steel or aluminum fabrication. Custom designs are available depending on your project specifications.
After - A two car 20ft X 20ft Steel Flat Pan carport in Ivory color in Shawnee, OK
Flat Pan Canopy Materials - The thickness of the carport roof "pans" depends on your particular application needs. The thickness for an aluminum roof pan is generally .019" to .048". This thickness works well with most awnings where there is little to no "snow-load" possibility or shorter spans.
Flat stock aluminum or coated steel material can be custom rolled into a formed pan materials and have the handsome baked-on finish as well as the strength to give you beauty, durability, and minimal maintenance cost. The carport pan materials are available in different colors although different manufacturers offer different color options. The Flat pans can be rolled into a 8, 12, 16, or 18 inches wide panels and can have a 3" inch high locking sides which makes and strong light weight canopy top. Noted there are several different thickness of pan options.
Insulated core "Flat Pans" are available. We can take a steel or aluminum flat pan panel and install a Styrofoam core the cover it with a top panel covering to help protect it from hail damage or falling tree debris.

Insulated Structural Panels (SIPs) or Laminated Roof Panel (LRP) are made with an foam core. SIP is a high-performance insulation specified by architects nationwide for many of today’s energy efficient homes. Using these insulated panels with our designed components will create a strong, durable Sunroom, Patio Cover or Carports. Structural insulated panels (SIPs) is a high performance advanced building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural metal facings that has been used for years within the Sunroom industry. Our Insulated panel structures are built with a interlocking system which ensure a structurally sound canopy system that is engineered to understand the most extreme weather condition. These SIPs are excellent when used within a hail prone area.
Panels are now available such as:
* 30ga & 24ga aluminum panels
* 26ga steel panels
* OSB wood panels
Panels thickness available in a 2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12 inches depending on the project application needs and requirements. The structural load, open spans, and wind load must be taken into consideration of each project design and application.
Standard Insulated Panel Color Options -
All colors are approximate.
Standard Perimeter Gutter, Side Fascia, Dripedge Fascia Color Selector.
3 inch Aluminum Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) 20X20ft carport with the Santa Fe pergola trim.
As more Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) become popular and used more main stream within the construction industry because of its superior energy efficiency and strength advantages.
SIPs are significantly stronger than stick frame construction. The whole panel acts like a structural load bearing panel. The benefits include a whole roof systems that eliminate the need for a truss or standard stick frame system. A SIP roof system is structurally superior to conventional stud framing methods plus you get the added advantage of the built-in insulation which can result into more energy savings or less heat transfer though the SIP.
The newer heavier gauged Aluminum and Steel cladded SIP's offers the best of the cladding materials that can withstand most of the hail and is considered within the roofing industry as a lifetime (50 yr) roofing material.
We now offer the OSB (ordinary stand broad) cladded SIPs that will allow us to use shingles that can match an existing roof structure. With any comp type of shingled roof structure the heavier roofing products being used in its construction must be taken into consideration and a thicker SIP panel and / or a higher rated and a decider foam SIP panel(s) may be required to handle the higher load requirements. Each SIP panel must be engineered and rated for the purpose it is being used.
Why not get the ultimate in building product technology and the best of both worlds!
Insulated Roof Panel (SIP) Carports Systems are the perfect product to provide shade, and give protection from rain, hail, or snow. Insulated canopies not only offer more installation between you and the sun but they also offer less noise as won't hear as much of that pinging noise when it is raining like you might with any steel or aluminum rolled form structures.
Metal (Aluminum or Steel) SIP panels are available in a standard stucco finish in the above color options. Note that some manufactures may offer additional SIP product colors and finishes. That are available on a special order bases.

Arbors / Pergolas / Pavilions - are available in wood or aluminum building materials and are available in custom built or prefabricated options. We also have the clear transplant top options so you can enjoy your structure year round while letting the sun shine though.
From mild to wild and anything in between !
