  1. Location Where you are going to install your carport is the first thing to determine. You want it near the house but not too close, because if there is ever a car fire, you don't want flames from the carport endangering your house. If your area is prone to lightning and thunderstorms, don't set it up next to a tall tree. Find a convenient location that allows you to park easily and safely.
  2. Size Carports are available in single, double, and triple sizes, so determine the size based on the number of cars you want to park and the size of your driveway.
  3. State and local regulations Check them out in case building permits are necessary to put up carports and where they may be placed.
  4. Install a certified carport Choosing a certified carport ensures a safe and durable structure that withstands heavy wind, rain, and snow.
  5. Materials Metal carports are preferable to wood or any other material. You can choose between steel and aluminum, which are strong and don't rust or corrode.
  6. Roof If you live in an area with heavy snowfall, make sure the carport roof is strong enough to hold a heavy snow load. The roof style can be gabled, single slope, or flat.
  7. Anchoring system If your carport doesn't come with its own anchoring system, purchase it separately. You need different anchors if you're placing your carport on grass or asphalt, so make sure you purchase the right anchoring system.
  8. Get help It's best to work in teams to get the job done faster and safer. Setting up a carport is easier if you have a helping hand.
