Benefits of Buying a Massachusetts Carport From Carports and More
The Bay State is arguably the most scenic in the country. Massachusetts is small, but it’s certainly mighty! Mass has rolling countryside, wild coastal areas, and of course, buzzing cities, and because of this variation, the needs of carport shoppers across MA vary wildly.
Carports in Massachusetts are a cost effective and convenient way to vastly increase your storage capabilities. This is especially important for homes and businesses alike. Many existing homes and buildings across the state date back to a time when people didn’t own quite as many possessions, and where businesses didn’t keep large stocks.
We are the nation’s largest independent dealer, and we also have an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau. The best way to safeguard the value of your RV or motor home is to protect it from the elements with a MA metal carport, particularly one of our RV carports.
If you’re looking for a metal building in Massachusetts, you can also forget about the common problems faced by wooden carport owners such as mold, termite damage and wood rot. Metal buildings from Carports and More are impervious to these. This drastically reduces the amount of maintenance required to keep your car port in pristine condition, which is ideal for busy homeowners!
Another great benefit of a steel building is the ability to install renewable energy equipment right on the structure. The sturdy designs of the carports we offer mean that solar panels and even small wind turbines can be fitted, not only is this environmentally friendly, it can also put money in your pocket by saving on your energy bills.
We are the nation’s largest independent dealers, and we have an “A +” rating from the Better Business Bureau. You can find many affordable permanent and portable cover suppliers on the market, but CPM truly stands out as offering the customer maximum dependability and value for money.
Customizable Carports for Rural and Urban Areas
Customizing Carports is what we do best here at Carports and More. Given our experience in the industry, we know that every customer’s needs are different, and carports are rarely a ‘one size fits all’ kind of purchase, and that the type of area your home or business is located in can have a significant impact into the design of your steel carport or metal building. With that in mind, we suggest that you take a look at our 3D carport and garage building tool. This section of our website will let you design your MA carport to your exacting specifications, with options including height, width, length, roof style, windows, doors, and even color.
Those of you living in large cities like Boston or Worcester will understand all too well the struggles of modern life with limited storage space, whether that’s for your cars or RVs at home, or whether you’re looking to expand your business, but property prices in the city are just too high. We offer Carports in smaller sizes with nearly all of the available options of our larger units. Direct from our website, you can design and build a carport as small as 10’ x 10’, with a leg height of just 5’ if available overhead space is an issue for you.
If, on the other hand, you’re located out in a rural area, chances are you’ve probably got more land to work with. If this is the case and you’re looking for a large storage or business expansion solution, metal buildings from Carports and More are the perfect choice. Via the website you can design and orer carports as large as 61’ x 30’, with leg heights of up to 12’. If you need something bigger, don’t worry, we can still help! Just give our customer services team a call and they will help you place an order for something that suits your exact needs.
As well as length, width, and height, we also offer various steel gauges for our products. 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.
Another area of customization that we offer is in side walls. Again, depending on exactly what you plan to use your carport or steel building in Massachusetts for, we’re sure your side walls requirements will differ, but we commonly see those of you living in cities, placing orders for fully enclosed carports. Our fully enclosed options offer a higher degree of physical security than our open sided units. This is ideal if you’re looking for a safe place to keep boats, RVs or motorcycles, for example. If you live in the country, you may not have the same security concerns, and you may even just be looking for a means of keeping your vehicles protected from the harsh sun, or simply out of the rain. Our open sided metal buildings and steel carports are the answer in this case.
A question we often hear is “does it matter if I don’t have a concrete pad to place my carport on?”, and the answer is no! We can install our carports on virtually any surface as long as it’s flat and level! We can construct on sand, dirt, gravel, concrete, asphalt, you name it! Even though these buildings are versatile, you do still need to consider it when placing your order though, as the anchoring system required will vary depending on the surface. If you’re unsure what kind of augers, anchors or tethers you need, just give our customer service team a call for more information.
Perfect for Residential Use
The fact that you’re already looking for RV carports for sale in MA means that you’re likely to avoid some of the pitfalls that many RV owners find themselves in. Many owners forgo our utility carports and opt instead for a large tarpaulin to cover the RV. This can do more harm than you would imagine as it would stop air circulating and promote mold growth on the inside of the vehicle.
An RV is an expensive investment, and it makes sense to protect it in a proper car port. Our galvanized steel carport in Massachusetts canopy options have a zinc coating, which protects the carport frame from corrosive elements like water and salt. We can cover any size RV, and any size vehicle for that matter: we can go up to 100 feet wide clear span (call us if you need it wider). We can make any length possible.
A quality Massachusetts portable carport is a useful addition for your RVing trips. You can use these portable steel and aluminum car ports to protect your RV while on the road, or simply as an outdoor shelter to get relief from the cramped RV quarters. Your portable carport garages will protect you from the sun and rain as you relax or work outdoors. We at CPM are happy to take care of your RV needs, because we want you to become one of our thousands of satisfied customers.
While they’re very useful for RV owners, our carports aren’t only for trailers and motorhomes, in fact you’ll benefit from one of our metal buildings no matter what type of vehicle you own, be it a boat, ATV, scooter, motorcycle or anything else. You’ll gain security and weather protection, two surefire ways to preserve the life and value of your treasured possessions.
Perfect for Commercial Use
Carports and More are poised to help you and your business flourish with one of our metal buildings. Whether you’re a start up, or you’re getting ready to expand your operations, we are ready to help you!
Massachusetts is a State with a wide and varied economy, but when it comes to the main drivers of industry, there are some standouts. Read on to find out how metal buildings can specifically benefit you if you’re involved in one of these sectors.
Agriculture – Massachusetts isn’t the first state on most minds when you mention farming, but believe it or not, the Bay State benefits greatly from this industry. Notable crops to come from MA include many greenhouse and nursery products, as well as fruits like cranberries and apples amongst others. Farmers can use our metal buildings for a multitude of purposes – for example, you can utilize them as crop storage facilities, they can be equipped to handle food processing facilities, and they can even be used for simple reasons such as machinery and equipment storage.
Tourism – Massachusetts has one of the richest histories of any state in the country, and millions of tourists flock annually to take in the culture of major cities like Boston, and in the fall the state becomes a haven for those looking to watch the leaves change – a truly spectacular sight. You can easily use one of our metal buildings for your tourism business. They make ideal garages, a great spot to store your vans and buses, and if you’re in with the latest trends in sightseeing, you could even use a steel building as a storage and charging location for Segways and electric scooters, too.
Fishing – The Bay State is known worldwide for its huge fishing industry. Many Mass residents make their living on the ocean, and we’re sure that if you’re amongst these individuals, one of our steel buildings will suit your business perfectly. While you can’t take your carport out fishing with you, they do make the ideal location for your processing line, and can even be set up as canneries. On top of this, you could even use one as a workshop for maintenance and repair of your fishing equipment.
Factors to Consider When Buying a Carport in Massachusetts
At Carports and More, we aim to give you the complete buying experience. Our goal is to prepare you for every eventuality, including giving advice about factors to be taken into consideration for carports in Massachusetts. Keep reading to find out more about some MA specific considerations to make for your carport or steel business purchase.
Temperature Regulation Inside your Metal Building
This one is particularly important for those of you looking to use your metal building commercially! Massachusetts winters can be truly harsh, and while summers are generally temperate, temperatures can climb well into the 90s. An enclosed metal building being used for business purposes, especially if you’re planning to store crops, or to have your employees working inside must be kept at the correct temperature to void spoiling product and to stay on the right side of occupational health and safety laws.
Climate controlling a metal building is achieved by following a couple of steps. First, insulation. Insulating your building will make it thermally efficient by keeping the cool air in during the summer and the cold air out during the winter. Once you’ve insulated, you can install a full HVAC system to provide hot and cold air on demand.
Metal Carport Roofs Made for Heavy Snow Loads
Massachusetts, like other Northern States is prone to big snow dumps during the winter months, this, of course can cause no end of problems if you’re keeping your vehicle uncovered at the moment. A metal carport in MA can help by keeping your car safely indoors when the white stuff starts falling – think about it, no more waking up early to scrape off the car before work!
At Carports and More we produce three different roof styles. Each have their merits, but of course, certain roofs are better suited to certain tasks. Metal buildings in Massachusetts can be ordered with standard horizontal, A frame horizontal and A frame vertical roofs, but if snow is a concern for you, we generally recommend the A Frame vertical roof.
Why do we recommend the A frame vertical? Well, thanks to the ridges, which run side to side, the inherent design of this style assists snow in sliding off your roof under its own weight, helping to reduce the need for you to physically get up on the roof to clear dangerous quantities of snow and ice. Excessive weight on the roof can put extreme stress and strain on the structure, and that’s the last thing you want!
Sea Air and Steel
Massachusetts’ coastline is wild and rugged, and Atlantic storms can blow salty air well into the mainland. As anybody knows, salt, water, steel and air often ends with rust, a deadly combination for a metal structure. That is, of course, if your steel is unprotected. Metal buildings from Carports and More are galvanized for excellent longevity and extreme low maintenance.
Galvanization involves coating the steel in a sacrificial layer, most often zinc, which protects the steel underneath. If you’re right on the water, we recommend giving your building a regular fresh water rinse to avoid salt build up, but outside of that, very little, if any maintenance is required.

One of the most convenient features of buying a carport from carports and more is that you can order your metal building completely online.

Permitting and Land Usage of Metal Buildings in Massachusetts
As you’ll find everywhere else in the country, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that anybody looking to install any kind of structure, including metal buildings and steel carports, applies for and obtains the proper permit before beginning construction.
This is absolutely essential in order to remain compliant with all applicable laws. Before hitting the check out button on our website, you must have the permit in hand. Once you have the paperwork taken care of, feel free to place your order.
