The first car port appeared around 1909, but the term “carport” is credited to architect Frank Lloyd Wright. He used a car port in a house he built in 1936. This early type of carport canopy was attached and was part of the house, but it didn’t offer the type of flexibility we have today.

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 Buildings in Washington State From Carports and More
Washington State, or as many call it, the Evergreen State, is home to major cities like Seattle and Spokane. But, in addition to those large, populous cities, you’ll find some of America’s most spectacular rural landscapes in Washington state too.
Because of the extreme variation in topography and climate across Washington state, we find our customers truly value our customization options. We have options suited for both urban and rural areas, regardless of whether they’re for business uses or home and recreation uses.
Customized Metal Carports in Washington State for Rural and Urban Areas
One of our most popular website features is our unique online carport builder. Using this great tool, you can fully customize your next steel building down to the smallest of details.
You can customize the height, width and length. We can go as wide as 100 feet, and the length is unlimited. We also give you the ability to choose how many sidewalls you want, whether or not you want full height sides, and if you want doors, rolling doors, windows or frameouts.
If you’re living in an urban area, your space might be limited, but we offer metal car ports as small as 10’ wide x 10’ long and 5’ tall.
If you’re in a rural area and you’ve got the space, the sky is the limit when it comes to size options. Our quality carports can be built as large as 61’ long x 30’ wide, with a leg height of up to 12’ directly on the website.
if you need something larger just give us a call and one of our sales reps will gladly help you.
We also give sidewall options, which allows you to choose from one side wall only, partial height sidewalls or full height walls on both sides. Sidewalls are a great way to help keep your metal building’s contents secure. For complete security, you may want to add at least one walk-in door, and possibly windows and rolling doors as well.
If you’d like to add more than one access point to your steel building, you absolutely can. Our carport builder allows you to select multiple rolling doors, walk -in doors and frameouts on all four sides of the building.
But if security isn’t an issue, an open-sided steel building can be a super convenient addition to your home or business. You’ll have unrestricted access to your shed, and in the event you need to store an oversized item from time to time that might be too large for the footprint of your steel building, you can still accommodate it with no problems.
We find that our customers want to use them for large farm machinery, especially with larger buildings,. And although the size of our rolling doors is limited, we can supply your metal buildings with frameouts, allowing you to install custom doors and windows.
We can install metal carports in Washington state and steel buildings on almost any surface — dirt, asphalt, concrete, clay and sand — as long as it’s level. All our steel carports in Washington state are easy to clean and maintain and are designed to be sturdy enough to resist all types of weather conditions.
While we are able to install metal buildings in Washington state on almost every surface, we recommend that when you’re not setting yours up on concrete you include anchors in your custom build. We utilize the same technology that’s used in mobile homes for a very secure finish, and we thoroughly recommend their use when installing on dirt, gravel, or grass.
Depending on your specific build you may require a minimum of four anchors.

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 has almost every type of landscape imaginable, something you should think about when considering 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 it’s vital you use the right materials in any metal structure you’re planning. In areas like the Puget Sound, there is even waterborne bacteria that can speed up corrosion.
Fortunately, our carports for sale in Washington State feature a unique innovation.
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’re going to have to deal with a greater range of temperatures than those living in two season areas. Winters are cold, summers are hot, fall and spring are somewhere in between.
Depending on what you plan to store in your steel building, you’ll need to consider an enclosed structure. This will allow you to keep the inside of the building climate controlled.
If you’re using a metal car port for your business, it’s even more important that you maintain temperatures inside. If you’re storing crops, lumber or beer, climate control will help you keep your products in peak condition and possibly even help you avoid losing inventory.
In order to properly control the climate in your metal building, you’ll need to insulate the structure and install an HVAC system and a furnace. This will cost a bit more to do, but you’ll have an incredibly efficient steel building that allows for year-round 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 light protection against rain and snow. In this case, an open-sided metal car port 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. But residents living from the Cascade Mountains to the Eastern border of Washington State experience significant snowfall each winter.
At Carports and More, we produce three different roof styles: standard horizontal, A-frame horizontal and A-frame vertical. Each one is better suited for different types of weather.
But for Washington State residents in areas that experience heavy snow, we always recommend the A-frame vertical roof. On this roof, the ridges run side to side, which makes it easier for snow to run off on 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
As with all states, Washington’s municipalities and counties are subject to local permitting and land use regulations. Depending on the specific design of your car port or metal building, you may be required to obtain permits to begin construction.
Before purchasing, please ensure you’ve checked the regulations for your area to ensure your design is allowed and to make sure you get the proper permits. If you purchase a steel building that doesn’t meet the code requirements, you will not be able to install it.
