Steel Buildings and Metal Carports in Oregon We Sell
Our steel carport and metal building styles span just about every possible use, ranging from simple car covers to large enclosed structures with walk-in and roll-up doors and windows.
The steel carports in Oregon and steel building styles we sell include 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.
Benefits of Buying Metal Carports in Oregon
Customizable for Rural and Urban Areas
Adding a new structure to your property requires proper sizing of the building. For example, life in or near the city usually means less space and the space you have available, along with the intended use of the metal building or steel car port, will dictate how big, or small, it should be.
Oregon portable carports can be installed and uninstalled easily, and are therefore perfect for those who are constantly on the move. Besides the obvious functions that carports serve, there are some really ingenious uses they are being put to.
How do you fancy solar panels on your carports? That is what it is being used for in many commercial and residential establishments to generate electricity.
We stock a wide variety of sizes and using our Carport and Garage Builder and you can also design your own custom building. Using this handy online tool, you can go as wide as 30 feet and as long as 61 feet, which will handle most situations.
However, if you live someplace that has plenty of space and need for a steel carport larger than 30 feet wide or 61 feet long, we can still help you design the building you want. Just contact one of our knowledgeable sales representatives to talk about the custom building size you require.
Another question you’ll need to ask yourself is whether you need an enclosed car port.
Oregon is a wonderful place to live, but it does get cold, and then there’s the rain, snow and the hot summer sun. Plus, you may have security concerns about keeping valuables in you carport.
For those and other reasons, you may want to enclose the sides and ends on your carport or garage. Whether your new building will be freestanding, or abutting an existing building, we can customize the enclosures to meet your needs.
If you need one or all of the sides open, we can do that, too. As a farmer, you might need some cover but want fresh air to keep animal odors under control. We can even install just a single side if you want a partial wind screen for the animals.
Or, you may want ventilation to use the new carport for lounging to enjoy the outdoors. Open sides and gable ends offer cover and shade while allowing the fresh air and cool summer breezes to circulate inside. You could even grill undercover with the ventilation provided by open sides and ends.
If enclosures are needed, then you may need to include some doors and windows. You need to consider how you and your equipment will get in and out of your new structure, plus you might want to let in some natural light with a window.
We offer a selection of standard walk-in and roll-up doors which can be placed as you require. We also offer 30-inch by 30-inch windows that can be placed wherever you desire.
You may also have specific sizes in mind for doors and windows. We offer frameouts to accommodate custom sizes if you’d like to install your own once the car port has been installed.
Another advantage of carport kits from Carports and More is that, irrespective of the ground surface your area sports — sand, dirt, concrete, asphalt — you need not think twice before installing, for these carports are made in a way that favors easy and firm installation anywhere.
Carports and More installs standard concrete anchors for concrete pads, and rebar pin anchors are included when the installation is done on asphalt or on dirt, grass and gravel.
There is also an option to install mobile home augers. If your installation is over dirt, gravel, grass, or asphalt, consider installing mobile home augers for increased resistance to wind.
We make it easy to customize your anchor options, and if you have any questions about anchoring, please call and one of our expert representatives can help you.
Perfect for Residential Use
As an Oregon resident, you likely already own a car or truck that could benefit from a new steel carport or metal garage. But you may also have a home that requires equipment and supplies for things like lawn and garden care in the summer and snow removal in the winter.
When you think about it, the term gardening entails a lot: in addition to lawn care and snow removal, there are vegetable gardens, flower beds, fountains and ponds. And all these activities require equipment and supplies like smelly fertilizer or dangerous chemicals.
Those bulky, hard to store plows and lawnmowers may be best stored in a simple shed, which we sell. Or, you may have a large amount of gardening supplies and equipment and need an actual garage; no problem we offer garages, too. When it comes to storing and protecting your gardening equipment and supplies, we have a solution to meet your unique needs.
Oregon is also one of the world’s great places for outdoor adventure. Mother nature calls for the state to be enjoyed whether it is just hanging out in your own backyard, visiting a vacation home, or exploring the state’s natural wonders like Hells Canyon or Crater Lake.
However, outdoor exploration often involves recreational transportation like RVs, ATVs, and bicycles or sports equipment like skis, canoes, kayaks, tents, and windsurfing boards, all of which which require secure, protected storage when not in use.
Instead of using the valuable space in your home, install a new metal car port or garage to provide ample space to handle the storage of all those recreational vehicles and equipment.
Our Carports for sale in Oregon have designs & plans for everybody’s needs. It matters not whether your carport will house five trucks or only one car, as long as you are talking carports, Carports and More can satisfy your needs. Whatever the width you prefer and whatever the length and height, we can assure your complete satisfaction in the product we deliver.
Perfect for Commercial Use
Oregon supports a number of thriving industries like cranberry and hop farming, forest and timber products, and fisheries. In addition, tourism is an important sector of the economy. All of these industries can benefit from the use of one of our sheds, carports or buildings.
Cows and other livestock may need protection from the elements, or you may have tractors that need to be stored when not in use. The farm and agriculture industry always needs additional covered space, and metal buildings or steel carports provide it for a fraction of the price of conventional wood frame construction.
If you need the building insulated, then your metal building can also be enclosed and insulated to meet your needs. Steel buildings and metal carports in Oregon are a perfect and cost-effective solution for agricultural businesses that require covered space.
The forestry and timber industry, as well as agriculture, can benefit by installing new structures. Covered space is always at a premium and metal buildings can be installed to house lumber, operations like sawing, or equipment that needs to be protected or secured when not in use.
The fishing industry will also find numerous uses for the extra covered space that one of our carports or buildings can provide. Protect a boat or other equipment, or install another packing operation in a new metal building. With no limit on the building length and widths up to 100 feet wide, we can install the sorely needed new space that fisheries need.
Those in the tourism industry running bicycle rental agencies, restaurants, motels, convention centers, etc. will also find metal or steel buildings offer superior benefits when extra space is needed to secure and protect their goods, supplies, or equipment. Our structures are easily customized to suit your needs and are cost effective compared to other options on the market.
Factors to Consider When Buying a Carport in Oregon
Snow is a fact of life in Oregon, but it does vary depending on the region where you live. At sea level along the coast, the area does not get much snow, maybe 1 to 3 inches a year. But if you live in higher elevations, snow can average in the range of 150 to 500 inches.
For your car port, metal or steel building to withstand the load caused by snow accumulating on the roof, your roof must be designed properly. We offer three roof types; standard horizontal, A-frame horizontal, and A-frame vertical.
If you live in an area that receives substantial snow, we recommend the A-frame vertical roof since this particular roof design is flush on both ends, has trim on all four eaves, and a ridge cap. Plus, the ridges on our A-frame vertical roof make a difference as the ridges run from the peak down to the drip edge, which helps force snow off the roof.
This unique ridge detail in our A-frame vertical roof facilitates shedding of snow, reducing the overall weight on the structure. For this reason, we strongly recommend this roof configuration in areas that receive substantial snowfall.
To quote a famous singer, “rust never sleeps.” That is certainly true in Oregon’s varied climates, and the intended use of your structure plus its location may require you to consider how to protect the typical steel building against future corrosion.
But not when you buy a metal building from us. We offer a unique innovation for our steel carports in Oregon. Our carports are made with 12 and 14 gauge galvanized steel frames (14-gauge = 2-1/2” x 2-1/2″ and 12-gauge = 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″). The galvanization process coats the steel frame with a protective layer of zinc, which provides built in corrosion protection.
Oregon is home to a wide range of terrains and elevations. But most of the state experiences temperature swings as the seasons change and temperatures will fluctuate inside an enclosed, uninsulated metal building.
Temperature swings may not be a problem for some users. However, if you store items like electronics, or plan on occupying or working in the space regularly, it may be necessary to insulate and heat or cool your new structure.
Insulation is an additional expense, but it allows control of the inside air temperature. Your sensitive items, and you if you plan on working inside the building, will be grateful for the climate controlled space when the outside temperature plummets or skyrockets.
To insulate your new metal carport or building, you will first need to install metal tracking and studs followed by your choice of insulation. Once the insulation is in place, you can then install drywall or finish the interior walls as you choose.
Do not have any misgivings about the stability and strength of carports over garages. Oregon carport kit once installed can serve the same purposes garages do and are far cheaper with less maintenance.

Permitting and Land Usage
Like all states, carports in Oregon have permitting and land use regulations. Depending on the design of your metal car port, you may be required to obtain permits before you can install it. In general, small structures do not require a permit, but as the square footage and height increase, the odds that you will need a permit also increase.
Keep in mind that development standards vary by city and county, so be sure to check with local building and planning authorities before selecting or designing a steel building.
Be sure you comply with all the requirements in your particular locale and that you obtain the proper permits in advance. If you fail to do so, you could be fined and or even be required to renovate or demolish the building.
