Carports come in many shapes and sizes, but there’s one thing that customers often ask us when they are ready to purchase one: Which prefab structure roof styles are the best?
We believe that customers need to choose the carport that meets their needs the best. This means there isn’t one roof style that is better than another. They all have their pros and cons.
Prefab Structure Roof Styles: Which One Is Best?
The following are the three most popular prefab structure roof styles, and the benefits of each one. This way you can choose the one that will work for you.
The three carport roof styles we will be explaining are:
The standard carport roof does not have a steep slope. It’s wider, so not as high. This makes it perfect for locations where you have to think of height. For example, if you’re trying to fit the carport underneath a tree. You may have to choose this standard roof style over a vertical one to make it fit. The disadvantage of this roof is that you may have a harder time removing debris from it since its slope isn’t as high, so leaves, branches, and other items won’t roll off as easily.
The boxed eave carport does have a steeper slope. This means that you won’t have to worry so much about debris getting stuck on the top of it. On the other hand, a boxed eave metal roof doesn’t come over the side like it does in the standard roof style. This means the standard roof style may provide a bit more coverage, which could cut down on the wind.
This leaves us with the vertical roof style. This one is the tallest of them all and it has the steepest slope on it. It’s natural for recreational vehicles or any other tall items needing to be stored. It is manufactured with more metal than the other two because of its size, and this means that it’s pricier than the boxed eave and standard designs.
If you’re looking for the most economical carport, you may want to go with the standard roof style. You can place small to mid-sized vehicles under it, store items underneath, or use it as a canopy for days you’d like to be covered from the sun or rain.
Those looking for a bigger, more robust carport are probably going to skew toward the vertical roof style, although the boxed eave is also a good option. It’s perfect for almost all vehicles, and you have a lot of room for storage and hosting events under it.
The vertical roof is best for people looking for maximum storage space in width and height. It gives you a lot of sheltered space to do whatever you can imagine.
