  1. And you don't want to use just any carport, but a carport designed for winter weather. If you live in a windy area and deal with wind chills, you should start by getting a carport with walls instead of the open structures that are used in warmer climates.
  2. Next, make sure you get a carport with a high snow load rating of 10 pounds per square foot, which refers to the amount of weight the shelter can handle.
  3. You can pick a carport design that is a lean-to, or you can add to an existing garage or a carport that is a roofed building that is ideal for protecting seasonal vehicles. Other options for winter carports are barn like designs and full steel buildings. You should look for a carport that has a traditional triangle or slanted roof, as the weight from snow on a flat roof will be much harder on the structure.
  4. Carports have a galvanized steel frame with a steel or polyethylene top that can withstand several pounds of snow and ice. The top portion of a carport is designed to keep out snow. Steel tops are coated with silicon and cover metal carports that are ideal for storing all kinds of vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, and a variety of seasonal vehicles.
