Do I Need a Galvanized or Powder-coated Steel Carport?

CarportThe galvanized steel used to manufacture the frames that come with most carports is highly durable and weather resistant. Each frame is an extremely strong and weather resistant alloy made out of steel and zinc.

Structural steel frames, however, are bonded with a Dupont thermoset baked on powder coated finish that prevents chipping, peeling, rust and corrosion. Once the frame is properly anchored into the ground, the carport is ready to shelter many different types of vehicles.

Depending on the size, a structural steel carport can be used to store a single seasonally used vehicle all the way up to providing long term shelter for a bus or commercial farm equipment. An enclosed carport with a galvanized steel frame is a smart long term investment.

Portable GarageMany structural and galvanized steel carports can also be used for temporarily sheltering animals, protecting cords of wood from getting wet, and even for social gatherings. As the current weather patterns move toward longer and harsher winters along with longer and hotter summers, the need to shelter vehicles and machinery becomes more and more vital. The number of blizzards, tornadoes and hurricanes has increased greatly over the last ten to fifteen years. It is not uncommon to see storm footage on the news in which cars and boats are being tossed in the air like a cheaply-made rag dolls. A well-made and properly installed galvanized steel carport will help protect your vehicle during these types of violent storms.

Often times, farmers and other workers will use a carport as a place to cut wood, assemble things or even just as a meeting place. Many families like to have picnics, small receptions or other social gatherings under their carports. Depending upon the needs of the consumer, both galvanized and or powder coated carports are sound investments.
