Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes are available?

We offer double and triple wides with entry from the gable-end without obscuring posts. However, if you need more bays, just enter from the side. The posts can be removed and a header installed for a small upcharge. Your unit can be made as long as you need, 4 bays, 5 bays, or even 6 bays. Your needs and acreage are the only real limits.

How is the carport or garage anchored and how much does it cost?

Thirty-inch rebar for units anchored into dirt or gravel and concrete anchors for units mounted on concrete pads are FREE. Certified buildings are tied down with helical mobile home anchors, which in some cases, are also included in the price. If they are not included, they are available for the small fee of $25 per anchor. When getting a permit, mobile home anchors are generally required.

Do I need a permit?

Whether a permit is required depends upon your state laws and local ordinances. You are responsible for knowing the permit requirements and for obtaining a permit for your structure. Generic engineered drawings are available from the Carport manufacturer for no charge. However, there is a reasonable charge for site-specific or sealed drawings. Please contact your local inspections department to make sure that you get the carport, garage, horse barn, or other unit that you need and that it meets code in your area.

How do I prepare for my carport, garage, horse barn, or combo unit?

MAKE SURE THE GROUND IS LEVEL. This will preserve your warranty and ensure that the unit looks good on your property. If the ground is not level:

  1. The crew may use bricks, blocks, or other levelers which will not be pleasing to the eye.
  2. The crew may be able to cut legs if the ground is unlevel side to side and not front to back. However, there will be a small cut fee at the time of installation for the time and trouble.
  3. The crew may be unable to install and there will be extra charges associated with any return trip. GET ALL UNDERGROUND LINES MARKED. This is usually a free service. You are responsible for making sure that the installation crew knows of any underground electric, gas, cable and other lines. This is of utmost importance for the safety of the crew and to protect your property.
Can my structure be put on a foundation other than the ground, concrete or asphalt or installed over obstructions or far from the trailers point of entry?

YES. Additional charges will be added for installation on or over RVs, campers, large obstacles, retaining walls, docks, decks, fences, or if the crew has to carry the kit more than 50 feet. If there is no electricity available, they will also need to know in advance in order to bring a generator to get the job done. As with everything, the more we know, the better it will go.

How much taller than the leg height is the height of the unit at its peak?
