Metal Carports in Arkansas We Sell
The metal buildings in Arkansas we sell span just about every possible use, ranging from simple car covers to large enclosed structures with walk-in and roll-up doors and windows.
We offer a wide variety of metal carports in Arkansas, including the following:
Steel carports are most commonly used as car covers, but they can also be used as outdoor storage shelters. We sell carport kits, as well, which are designed for do-it-yourself assembly. In addition, we sell RV carports and portable carports, which are compact and easy to move.
Our steel garages are fully customizable. No matter what size you need, and no matter what features you require, we can help you design a garage to fit your needs. We also sell garage kits, which are a bit easier to install, and portable garages that can easily be moved.
Portable canopies can be used in more ways than just about any other products we sell. Their light-weight construction makes them extremely easy to install, take down and even move. Not only that, the wide variety of sun shelter options we stock makes it easy to pick the right one.
Utility Carports, Sheds and Buildings
The biggest selling point of a utility shed is that they’re often designed to include both open and enclosed space — like a carport with storage. We also sell portable sheds, which are mobile, as well as lean-to and loafing sheds, which are partially enclosed utility buildings.
Not every metal carport vendor sells solar carports. But we do. It’s one of our stand-out products, and it shows we’re a leader in our industry. Solar carports cost more, but they’ll drastically reduce your electric bills and help you recoup your investment over time.
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
ADUs, also known as mother-in-law suites and granny flats, are gaining traction throughout the country. They help control rental rates while giving homeowners the opportunity to supplement their income. Although they can be costly, metal ADUs are a great affordable solution.
One of the biggest trends in home building, barndominiums — a combination of “barn” and “condominium” — are houses often built on large plots of land in rural areas. Barn homes are more affordable than houses made of other more costly materials, like brick or stone.
Another home building trend, shouses, or shop houses, are residential structures with a built-in shop. A shouse is also known as a shop with living quarters attached. These home styles are ideal for homeowners who require a place to work, but don’t want to build a detached workshop.
Cold-formed Steel Framing
In addition to metal carports and steel buildings, we sell all kinds of metal building materials, including cold-formed steel framing. We stock purlins, trusses, studs and track framing. These frames can be used to support roofs, load-bearing walls, interior walls and more.
Why Buy Metal Carports in Arkansas From Carports and More?
Metal buildings in Arkansas offer a level of durability and cost-effectiveness that other building styles, like wood, brick or stone, simply can’t. But at Carports and More, we want to do more than just sell metal buildings in Arkansas. We want to help you design a carport that meets all your requirements, and we want to make sure it’s assembled properly. So, we do.
We offer zero cost installation and delivery in every state. Take advantage of our carport kits for your home or business — they can have multiple uses. Our utility carports are perfect for your home office, or you can use them as workshops, warehouses, or industrial offices.
Or, you can use them to cover and shelter vehicles and other equipment that normally wouldn’t fit in a smaller, enclosed garage, such as big boats, tractors, RVs, and tractor-trailers.
We can make any length steel carport in AR, and we can go up to 100′ wide clear span (call us if you need it wider). Carports And More has been in the Arkansas car port business for over a decade. Our galvanized metal RV carports are perfect for Arkansas, with its humid climate. Our metal carport canopy options offer the best security and durability available.
Our ten-plus years in the metal carport business has made us one of the most experienced metal building suppliers in the nation. We’ve sold steel buildings to thousands of homeowners and businesses across the country, and we hope you’ll join our list of satisfied customers.
Metal Buildings in Arkansas Must Work in Rural and Urban Areas
While quality is important to us, we’re also extremely proud of our design capabilities. In fact, we have a tool, the Carport and Garage Builder, on our website that allows you to plan out how your carport will look before you buy it. You can choose the dimensions, the walls — if any — as well as the doors and windows. You’ll even be able to see what metal carports in Arkansas cost.
Being able to customize a metal carport is a big plus, especially in a diverse state like Arkansas. It’s really the only way to make sure you’re getting exactly what you need in a steel building.
One of the first things to select when planning your steel building design is the size. We let you choose all the available dimensions, including the width, length and height.
Size is an important consideration for our customers. Those living in cities, like Little Rock, may find their available space is limited, and as such require a smaller footprint. In fact, our metal buildings in Arkansas can be ordered as small as 10-feet wide by 10-feet long by 5-feet tall.
Rural residents of Arkansas, are the other hand, generally have a lot of space. Whether you’re looking for something for your residence or a solution for your business, a metal carport can provide you with as much covered storage as you could ever need. We can make any length steel carport in AR, and we can go up to 100′ wide clear span (call us if you need it wider).
We also offer two different steel frame sizes. Each metal carport comes in a 14-gauge or 12-gauge frame (14g = 2-1/2” x 2-1/2″ galvanized steel) (12g = 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ galvanized steel). The 12-gauge is 20 percent stronger than the 14-gauge.
If you’re planning to store any items of value in your AR carport, you should be looking into a fully enclosed unit. If you enclose all the walls and add roll, or walk indoors, you’ll be able to properly secure your car port and ensure access is granted only to those who are authorized.
Depending on the size of your vehicles and equipment, you may want to consider adding frameouts to your metal building. We can add frameouts to any metal building or carport large enough to accommodate all sizes of trucks, from pickups to semis.
If you’re in the country and you’re looking more for convenience than you are for security, we sell carports with open sides in all sizes. Going with this option provides basic shelter for your outdoor equipment and vehicles, and allows quick and easy access.
A metal carport is only as strong as its foundations or anchoring system. Depending on where you live, you may have to opt for different means of securing your steel building.
If, for example, you’re installing your steel building on any other surface than concrete, we strongly recommend using mobile home augers to ensure your carport is secure.
We can additionally provide asphalt anchors, which are much more commonly used in urban settings where an asphalt base is the norm.
How Metal Buildings in Arkansas Benefit Homeowners
Even basic cars and trucks cost a lot of money these days. But if you live in Arkansas, chances are, you also own other vehicles used to enjoy the outdoors, such as boats, motorcycles, ATVs or UTVs. In that case, you not only want to protect them from the elements, but also from theft.
Your expensive toys, tools and vehicles are exceptionally vulnerable to Arkansas’ famous hail storms. The hailstones have been reported as big as 5 inches in diameter. As you can imagine, hail can cause significant damage to car bodies and windows. But a metal carport can protect your vehicles — and it may cost less than repairing your vehicle after a storm.
There are a multitude of possible uses for your steel car port in Arkansas besides storing vehicles. Some of our customers have converted a metal building into a horse barn. The strong and sturdy carports that we sell are ideal for this application.
But, if you live in a subdivision with strict rules on the design of any auxiliary buildings, like metal carports, use our designer tool to make sure you can meet those regulations.
Homeowners associations can often impose rules on the storage of trailered boats and RVs in driveways. If you have no garage, or no room in your existing garage for your additional vehicles, a portable carport, or metal building, could be the perfect solution.
Metal Carports Fit Right into Arkansas’s Industrial Economy
Business owners and operators across Arkansas are already taking advantage of the benefits of steel carports and metal buildings, and if you’re not one of those satisfied customers, we strongly suggest looking into investing in one of our products. Whether you run a small independent business or a large chain, we can help provide a metal carport solution.
There are many sectors of industry across the State of Arkansas, but the four biggest contributors to the economy are food and beverage processing, paper and timber production, steel production, and aerospace and defense. All of these industries, and others, can benefit from incorporating metal carports and steel buildings into their operations.
Food processing, in particular, is a massive industry in Arkansas. In fact, 23 of the top 25 most successful food and beverage companies in the world have manufacturing facilities in Arkansas.
If you’re in the food processing industry, you can absolutely benefit from metal carports.
Our enclosed metal carports can be outfitted for poultry farming, catfish processing, cotton and cottonseed preparation, and more. And if your Arkansas agriculture specialty is in the growth of crops like wheat, barley or soybeans, our steel buildings make the perfect storage units. Enclosed buildings can even be climate controlled, making them perfect for year-round use.
At Carports And More we know a thing or two about steel. And if steel is your business, you should definitely consider one of our metal buildings to expand and improve your operation.
Within the past few years, billions of dollars has been poured into Arkansas’s steel production industry, turning the state into one of the country’s industry leaders. Producing steel requires storage — raw materials and finished products — and metal buildings are the perfect solution.
The State of Arkansas boasts nearly 20 million acres of forestland, making it the perfect location for lumber industries. In fact, over 5 percent of Arkansas’s total economy comes from forestry.
Arkansas has developed a sustainable approach to the wood industry, and thanks to these efforts, it will remain a strong sector for years to come. With this in mind, an investment in a metal building for any company in the timber industry can provide a safe and secure place for storing wood raw materials and products that need protection from the elements.
There are a large number of major aerospace and defense companies based in Arkansas as well. In fact, civilian aircraft, engines and parts are the State’s leading exports. Businesses in this industry can also greatly benefit from owning metal carports in Arkansas, whether it’s to help with production or supply chain and logistics.
Considerations for Buying Metal Carports in Arkansas
Anyone looking to build a carport in Arkansas, whether for residential or business purposes, should take note of the following factors. From inclement weather to the state’s varied topography, take note of these tips before you start designing metal buildings in Arkansas.
Use the Right Anchors to You’re Prepared for Strong Arkansas Winds
Arkansas is prone to extreme weather conditions, including strong winds and even tornadoes, which is why it’s vital you prepare your carport for these possible conditions.
While we are more than capable of installing our steel buildings on a wide range of surfaces, we recommend that our Arkansas customers install metal carports on a concrete slab. Pouring a slab of concrete allows us to attach the structure to the ground using concrete anchors, which are much stronger than bar pin anchors used on dirt, gravel and grass surfaces.
If a concrete base isn’t an option for you, you can also pour an asphalt slab. But if the only surface you’re able to build on is dirt or soil, you’ll need to install mobile home anchors, which provide an extra level of security, in addition to the bar pin anchors that are included.
We will fulfill your metal carport needs, building in whatever shape and size you need, on whatever surface you present us with – asphalt, clay, sand, dirt or concrete – as long as it’s level.
Add Sidewalls to Keep Out Hail and Debris
As you’ve likely gathered, Arkansas weather, while generally mild and temperate, can occasionally turn extreme. Depending on what you’re planning to keep underneath your carport or steel building, you may want to enclose it entirely.
During a hail storm, for example, significant damage can be caused to vehicles’ bodywork and glass, and in some cases, the vehicle can be totaled by the insurance company.
An open-sided carport may not be the best choice if you’re the owner of valuable or vintage vehicles that need protection, as hail can blow almost horizontally during bad storms. For the best protection, a fully enclosed carport with a roll-up or walk-in door is the best option.
Similarly, during high winds and tornados, flying debris becomes a real hazard to any valuable vehicles or equipment. Keep your cars and possessions safe in an enclosed carport.
If you’re using your metal building to store lumber or other items that likely won’t be damaged by an ice storm, an open carport or shed should provide adequate shelter for your needs.
Workers Will Require a Climate-controlled Space
Many residential carport owners won’t need to consider climate control. But if you’re a business owner erecting a metal building to bolster your operation and plan to have employees working indoors all year round, we suggest you enclose your metal carport and install an HVAC system.
Summer weather in AR can be extremely hot — sweltering, in fact. Providing a comfortable atmosphere for your workers is essential. To do that, we suggest proper insulation to ensure thermal efficiency, as well as installing an air conditioning and heating system.
Note that installing an HVAC system is only recommended for fully enclosed steel buildings to avoid excess energy costs.

Permits for Metal Buildings in Arkansas
The versatile nature of metal carports has helped increase their popularity in Arkansas. The speed and ease of installation compared to a brick and mortar garage or timber-framed carport is beyond comparison, and the strength and durability are unparalleled, too.
Of course, it’s easy to assume that because our process for buying metal carports in Arkansas is so simple, all there is to do is make a few clicks. However, like all other states, Arkansas has building codes and regulations that must be adhered to, and that includes carports.
We recommend acquiring permits before you make a purchase. After you’ve applied for and have been granted permits, your metal building project is usually able to begin immediately.
For more information specific to Arkansas carport installation, head to your city or county’s website and review the planning and development guidelines. For general land use information and guidelines, refer to the state’s project manual.
