Find the highest-quality steel carports in Florida at Nelson’s Buildings

Florida residents love the year-round warmth and sunshine that living in the state allows them to experience. While the sun is great, the rays can cause damage to both people and cars. If you do not have enough space to park your car inside of your garage or simply do not have a garage, parking your car outside can lead to faded and cracked paint and interior damage. A better alternative to parking your vehicles outside is to purchase a new metal carport from Nelson’s Buildings. By purchasing a stainless steel carport, you can protect your vehicles from the sun, high winds, rain, hail, and other elements that occur in Florida.

Florida Carports – Regular Roof Style


Regular roof carports in Florida

The Florida carports from Nelson’s Buildings with regular roof styles have gambrel roofs. These roofs have shallow peaks and rounded roof edges.

The regular roofs in Florida are constructed out of strong stainless steel, which allows them to withstand the weather. Stainless steel is resistant to rust and dents, allowing you to enjoy your carport with little maintenance.

The regular roof style is the most economical option for our Florida customers. This makes it very popular with our customers.

The boxed eave roof carports that Nelson’s Buildings offers to Florida residents are our mid-grade option. These roofs are made out of stainless steel that has horizontal ridges. The horizontal ridges in the steel give it more surface area, which adds to its strength.

The boxed eave roof style carports have A-frame roofs with boxed eaves. There are steel linings installed along the edges and around the eaves to provide extra support and strength.

Florida Carports – Vertical Roof Style


Vertical roof carports in Florida

The vertical roof style is the heaviest-duty option for our Florida customers. The vertical ridges add to the surface area of the steel for more strength.

The vertical ridges allow precipitation to easily run off of the roof during heavy rain in Florida. These carports have additional steel plates installed side by side with steel linings running between the plates and around the edges. These roofs have A-frame roofs.

Nelson’s Buildings sometimes fields calls from our customers in Florida who are confused about the differences between our boxed eave and vertical roofs. The boxed eave roofs have horizontal ridges in the steel that run the length of the roofs. The vertical roofs have vertical ridges in the steel that run from the peak of the roof to the sides so that rain and other precipitation can run off instead of pooling on top.

Carports in FL Provide Protection

The metal carports from Nelson’s Buildings protect cars, SUVs, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and other vehicles from the different types of weather that Floridians experience. They can be anchored to the ground, to asphalt, or to concrete slabs to help to keep them in place during hurricanes and high winds. The roofs and posts of our carports are made from strong stainless steel, helping to protect your vehicles from hail and other problems. You can partially or fully enclose your carport to provide even more protection.

The protection that our carports offer to Florida residents is the primary reason why our customers purchase the stainless steel carports from Nelson’s Buildings. In addition to protecting your vehicles from the elements, your new carport can also offer many other benefits to you. You can also use your carport to store other outdoor items such as lawn and gardening equipment. Some people like to use their carports as shady structures in which they can entertain their family members and friends during backyard barbecues. Our carports provide shelter from the sun for children while they are playing outdoors and are a convenient place for parents to sit while watching their children playing. Some residents use their carports to complete different projects such as woodworking that produce too much dust to be performed indoors. How you might use your carport is only limited by your imagination.

Types, styles, sizes of metal buildings we offer in Florida.

With Nelson’s Buildings, you can find a carport that will fit your available space and your needs. Our carports can be built in a broad range of sizes and styles, ranging from 12 x 21 feet up to 24 x 41 feet or larger. If you want a wider carport, we have triple-wide carports that range in width from 26 feet to 30 feet. You can add length to your carport beyond 41 feet in five-feet sections.

We also offer metal barn lean-to carports that can be as wide as 60 feet. You can add length to your carport in five-feet sections until you get the length that you want. All of our Florida carports are certified and rated for winds of up to 150 miles per hour. This helps the carports from Nelson’s Buildings to withstand medium-strength hurricane winds up to Category 3. You can also upgrade to a carport that is rated for 180 miles per hour, which means it will withstand nearly every hurricane that makes landfall in the state.

For our Florida steel carports, we use 14-gauge steel with 2 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch square tubing. As an upgrade, you can choose 12-gauge steel with 2 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch tubing. The 12-gauge steel tubing is highly rust-resistant, which is important if you live in a coastal area in which your carport will be exposed to salt spray from the ocean. It has a tensile strength of 54 pounds per square inch, which is much stronger than what you can find in aluminum carports. Our cement anchors come standard with every carport that we sell.

When you are planning to install a new metal carport from Nelson’s Buildings for your Florida home or business, you need to check with your local county or city for the building codes. You should plan your concrete pad to be a size that fits your carport while remembering to factor in the overhang. Some of the other options that we offer for our steel carports in Florida include the following:

  • Bracing with two- or four-foot braces
  • Longer or wider carports
  • Carports that are taller to accommodate vehicles such as semi-trailers and RVs
  • Partial or full enclosures
  • Fully enclosed metal garages with doors and windows

You can make your selection of the options that you want from the convenience of your home or business at our online shop. After you choose the length, width, style, height, color, and other options, you can place your order and pay a minimum deposit. We will then build your carport to meet your specifications and deliver it to your home or business for free anywhere in the state. Our carports are entirely made in the U.S.A., and we install them for free.

Daniel arrived promptly on a Friday evening after my garage became inoperable. After replacing two springs and some final tuning I was out the door in 30 minutes.
