Metal Carport: Let’s Customize

Imagine your own metal carport.

metal carport

Great job!

Now imagine the rush of pulling into the all-steel protection of this metal carport. Like driving into a protective pod with no walls. Or with three solid walls. Or two, or one. That’s the beauty of it: you can imagine your metal carport with as many walls as you want.

But why would you use your imagination on a carport, when there’s an online building system that lets you design your metal carport with the click of a button? Wouldn’t you rather use your imagination on other things, like a car that grows wings and can fly higher than a rain cloud? That’s something we, as 21st-century Americans, don’t have. But what we do have is something strong, something attainable, and something practical. We have a metal carport.

But keep imagining your metal carport. Imagine what color panels will best complement your house. Imagine which of our three roof styles says, “Take your best shot, weather!” in your unique tone of voice. Imagine a skilled team of builders installing a carport for one, two, or even three cars! Now imagine the quality steel, the years of protection you’ll get for your vehicles and equipment.

Now go make it a reality.

Elephant Structures carports aren’t your run-of-the-mill metal sheds. These metal carports are designed with your needs in mind. Width, height, color, roof—it’s all custom.

Carport or Garage: Which Should I Choose?

Carport or Garage: Which Should I Choose?

When choosing between a carport or garage, there are a number of factors to take into account. True, you have to consider the cost, but even garage can be customized and be as inexpensive as a metal carport. So here’s a good list for determining whether you want a carport or garage. Enjoy!

Firstly, what’s the difference between a carport and a garage? Well, carports are designed to be used without requiring an access door. They can have no walls, two walls, or even three walls, as long as they’re open for a car to pull in and out. Garages, on the other hand, are always fully enclosed and have a garage door and sometimes a walk-in access door.

Each design offers a number of benefits–you just have to decide which is the best fit for you!

Carport Benefits

To quote the late, great architect Frank Lloyd Wright, “A car is not a horse, and it doesn’t need a barn.” Yes, Wright took a fancy to carports as early as 1936. Cars have long luxuriated in the protection of carports, and it’s time yours did, too. Metal carports are a cost-efficient way to protect your vehicle without having to tuck it away and out of sight. It’s protected against your basic damaging weather conditions like snow, rain, hail, sun, and yes, even those sneaky falling leaves that eat at your clear coat. Extra walls add extra protection; the choice is up to you!

You can customize your metal building to include walls, doors, windows, and have it fit the exact dimensions you need.

Garage Benefits

Garages offer more protection against theft, vandalism, and environmental hazards. Garage doors allow you to enable access by vehicles big and small, while still being able to close up the space. Your car’s still protected against snow, rain, hail, sun, wind, and leaves, and you get the added benefits of extra storage space for your tools and equipment! Customize your garage to make it just the way you want it.

When you shop Elephant Structures, your metal structure–whichever you choose–will be custom built to your specifications. Fine steel components come together to form a quality product, carport or garage, that you’re sure to be pleased with.

3 Residential Carport Designs That Impress

3 Residential Carport Designs That Impress

A residential carport doesn’t have to be lame. After all, it’s got one of the most important jobs on the homestead, right? And like anything this important, it has to look good. A sleek metal exterior. Not just the husk of a steel building–you want something jazzed up. Something that shows off your snazzy self.

And it doesn’t have to be all about the looks. After all, what use is a good-looking building when it doesn’t actually do anything? That’s why we’ve brought our chic sense of style and combined it with steel designs engineered for durability without equal. Because we take pride in our residential carports. And we want you to be proud of yours.

The Residential Carport

What you see here isn’t just a regular residential carport. This is the future of carports. It’s a residential carport designed to impress. From the sweeping green of your backyard, to the peaking towers of the city, this is the only thing that stands between your car and the elements. And we don’t know about you, but its custom design sure does impress.

White Residential Carport

Custom carport designs can be fully-enclosed. Take this one, for instance. Three walls are perfect for saying, “I am a practical and upbeat homeowner, and I car what happens to my car.” The custom color selection here is clean, modern, and to be honest, pretty slick. The A-Frame roof is modern and gives the carport a sleek, sharp appearance.

red garage

There are few things as charming as a red garage. It’s a reminder of old times. Sure, we made this a blog post about residential carport designs, but what’s a garage if not a fully-enclosed carport? While the white residential carport above provides increased protection against sun and precipitation, this garage design is perfect protection against all the damaging elements. That includes sun, rain, wind, snow, hail, and those slow-attacking autumn leaves. This garage in particular is designed for 2 cars, with plenty of space to move around and store your equipment! Now that’s impressive.

How does your current residential carport stack up to these?
