Ordering your Metal Garage
What do I need to do to place an order for one of the metal garages?
Placing an order at Carport1 is a pretty straightforward process. After selection and customization of the metal garage, you can place an order for the garage. The processing of the order will start only after you pay the down payment for the metal structure.
If the price of the metal garage is under $1500, the down payment is just 10% of the total cost, while it is 12% for an order that has total cost between $1500 and $4000. The down payment for structures with prices higher than $4000 is 15% of the total cost.
We accept payments through VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and PayPal. These modes of payment can start the processing of your order earlier than checks. Though acceptable, with checks we need 5-10 business days to make sure that the check clears before starting the order. Purchase orders should be sent in for approval before we accept them.
Installing Metal Garages
How much preparation do I need to make before the order arrives on site?
The site for construction of metal garage has to be leveled before the installation actually takes place. Any site with a slope difference of more than 3” will cause instability of the entire structure. Metal garages built on an unlevelled piece of land can also develop other faults like leaks and cracks as well as difficulty in operating the openings.
Our installation crew will not be able to install a metal garage in such sites. So, before the installation crew arrives, make sure that the construction site is leveled. Any obstruction, vegetation, or debris that might impede the construction process should also be cleared off the site.
The delivery and installation of our metal garages within our service area are free as long as the site is level and clear.
Metal Garages vs. Metal Carports: Which Should You Buy?
When it comes to sheltering your vehicles and equipment, steel carports and garages are two of the most popular options. But which should you buy? Which shelter will be perfect for you?
Many of our customers come with the same dilemma. Well, there is no clear winner in the metal carport vs. metal garage battle. Each of these shelters come with some advantages and some downsides. Ultimately, it all depends on your individual storage needs.
Still, we have compiled a list comparing the various features of metal garages as well as metal carports to make your decision easier.
Cost of Metal Carports and Metal Garages
Metal carports are generally cheaper than garages. That is because carports require less material to be manufactured. Hence, the manufacturing cost of the carport is low. Especially our open carports or smaller carports, like single car carports or double car carports, are some of the cheapest metal carports you can find in the market.
If you want affordable options for metal garages, then you can take a look at our regular roofed garages. You can also bring down the cost of the garage by customizing it to fit your budget.
The strength of the Metal Carports and Metal Garages
A basic metal garage is more robust than a standard metal carport. The coverage of the garage adds to the structural strength of the metal building. Hence, garages can handle any type of weather conditions. To increase the strength of a carport, you can also increase its coverage by opting for gables, side and end panels, etc.
Protection For Your Belongings
Metal carports can give your belongings fundamental protection against the elements. However, they are not as effective against other threats, like thieves, and vandals.
Even though metal garages are not as easily accessible as carports, they do offer better safety for your vehicles. You can increase the security of these metal buildings by investing in cameras, alarms, and other such equipment.
The decision of carport or garage depends on your storage needs. If you want something cheaper and more accessible, then metal carports will serve you well. But, if the safety of your belongings is of utmost importance, then you should choose steel garages.

The building turned out BETTER than I could imagine. The entire process was great, start to finish. Brandon really made the entire process simple. Between pulling the permit, getting us scheduled, and the installers arriving with the building to install, we could not ask for better customer service! The installers were the best you could ask for, very professional and super nice.
