VERTICAL CARPORTS

If you have never purchased a carport before, you might be surprised to learn of the many different options that are available. Sure, a basic carport will look pretty similar from one model to the next, but there is more going on there than meets the eye. It’s a good idea to educate yourself on the options before placing an order, so you can be sure to make a purchase that suits your needs. For many people, their needs are going to lead them in the direction of a vertical carport from American Carports, Inc. If you’re ready, you can order now—or learn more about the benefits of this model below.

The word ‘vertical’ in this context refers to the orientation of the roof. On many carports, the metal that makes up the roof is oriented the long way across the carport, such that the ‘ridges’ are running from side to side. This is what’s known as a horizontal carport. As you might be able to guess, a vertical carport is one where the metal on the roof has been turned, running up and down the roof instead of parallel with it. This not only changes the look of the carport, but the performance as well.

It is the ability to deal with tough weather conditions that makes a vertical carport design so appealing. Since the panels on the roof will be running up and down, rain and snow will have an easy path to simply slide off and down to the ground. That is not the case with a horizontal roof, which can make it difficult for precipitation—especially snow—to make its way off. For those who live in an area where heavy snows are a common occurrence, opting for a vertical carport is an easy choice.

It is true that a vertical carport will cost slightly more than a horizontal model, simply because of the need for additional structure required to finish the build. With that said, given the performance benefits gained by opting for a vertical roof, the added cost will be well worth it in the end.
