Maximize a space’s utility by building a Utility Carport, which is a hybrid of a small garage or shed and a carport. Better Metal Buildings offers utility carports all across the continental United States. A utility carport is chosen to make use of the easy access carport with the added benefit of storing more sensitive equipment in the enclosed section. Utility carports come in either regular style of a-frame style.
A-Frame utility carports have the recommended option to add a vertical roof. Better Meta lBuildings has pre-packaged side entry utility carports with vertical roofs. Contact us to learn more. The storage unit can come with roll up garage doors, walk in doors, and windows. Other options like wood floors and insulation can make for a comfortable work room.
Many customers will park ATV’s, lawn mowers, tractors, boats, or cars under the carport section and use the storage section for lawn tools, mechanic tools, or other random things that are used often. The garage door under the cover of the carport makes it easy to access item in the storage department during any weather conditions.
Sizes – Utility Carports can come in almost any size. The most common sizes are found between 18’x31’x6’ and 30’x41’x7’. The standard sizes of storage areas are 5′ or 10’-12’ depending on the area.
Doors – Garage roll up doors are traditionally placed under the covered area and are usually 8‘x7’ in size. Other sizes are of course available. Walk in doors are usually placed on the sides of the storage areas to allow ease of access when vehicles block the roll up doors.
Side Entry – Any unit can be made into a side entry utility carport. The leg height must be at least 1’ taller than any door or opening and additional costs will be added.
Insulation – Foil-Foam-Foil, roll out insulation can be added to help maintain temperatures in the metal storage area.
