WHAT ROOF STYLES DO YOU OFFER AND WHAT ARE THE FEATURES OF EACH STYLE?
What roof styles do you offer and what are the features of each style?We offer three roof styles. They are: Regular style units have rounded corners and are considered the “basic” of carport designs. Acting as a founding product for all other designs, the regular style unit is typically the most economical and affordable product. Boxed Eave units are designed with an “A” frame roof truss and horizontal roof panels. This modern design has made this style unit one of the most popular available. An upgrade to Boxed Eave style is both stylish and affordable. Vertical Roof units are designed with an “A” frame roof truss and vertical roof panels. Hat channel runs the length of the unit to cross brace the roof and provide a mounting point for the roof panels. This design helps to prevent weathering elements such as rain and snow from “standing” on your building. Vertical Roof units come standard with ridge cap and specially designed wider trim that give the product a modern, finished appearance. for more information about our roof styles visit our roofing systems page.
