Buying Metal Carports in Washington State: Things to Consider
We all know the weather in Washington State ranges from amazing to downright severe. From the coast to the mountains and everything in between, Washington also has almost every type of landscape imaginable, something you should consider when buying a metal building.
How Ocean Air Affects Steel
For those living on the coast, the salty air can pose issues for metal structures. Unprotected steel can rust and cause damage.
If you live within 3000 feet — about half a mile — of the ocean, you’re in the prime corrosion zone and must use suitable materials for any metal structure you’re planning. In areas like Puget Sound, there are even waterborne bacteria that can speed up corrosion.
Fortunately, our carports for sale in Washington State have a unique feature. They’re available in 12-gauge and 14-gauge frames (14-gauge = 2-1/2” x 2-1/2″ galvanized steel, 12g = 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ galvanized steel). During the galvanization process, the steel is treated with a layer of zinc, designed to protect the steel from corrosion.
Climate Control and Temperature Regulation in your Metal Building
Washington State is a four-season state, meaning you’ll have to deal with a greater range of temperatures than those in two-season areas. Winters are cold; summers are hot, and fall and spring are between.
Depending on the purpose of the steel building, you may need to consider an enclosed structure. This will allow you to control the internal temperature of the building.
Maintaining the building’s internal temperature is very important if you use a metal carport for your business. If you’re storing crops, lumber, or beer, climate control will help keep your products in peak condition and possibly help you avoid losing inventory.
To properly control the temperature in your metal building, you’ll need to insulate the structure and install an HVAC system. This will cost more, but you’ll have an incredibly efficient steel building that allows for year-round optimal storage.
If you live further inland, where the weather isn’t as seasonal, you may only be looking to keep their vehicles out of direct sunlight or for lightweight protection against rain and snow. In this case, an open-sided metal carport may be all the building you need.
Metal Carport Roofs Made for Heavy Snow Loads
Coastal Washington may have sea air and rain to deal with, but snow isn’t as common. However, residents from the Cascade Mountains to the Eastern border of Washington State experience significant winter snowfall.
We produce three roof styles at Steel and Stud: standard horizontal, A-frame horizontal(boxed eave), and A-frame vertical roof. Each roof panels have different functionality in different types of weather.
For Washington State residents in areas that experience heavy snow, we recommend the A-frame vertical roof style. On this roof type, the ridges run side to side, which makes it easier for snow to run off to the ground, reducing the weight load on the roof.
Avoiding a heavy snow buildup means you’re putting less stress on your steel building’s structure, and just as importantly, you’ll avoid going up on the roof to clear it.

Permitting and Land Usage of Metal Carports in Washington State
Washington’s municipalities and counties are subject to local permitting and land use regulations on a steel structure, as with all states. Depending on the specific design of your carport or metal building, you may be required to obtain permits to begin construction.
Before purchasing, please check the regulations for your area to ensure your design is allowed and ensure you get the proper permits. If you purchase a metal garage that doesn’t meet the code requirements, you may not be able to install it.
