Kentucky Carports – Regular Roof Style

The traditional style of carport roofs in Kentucky from Nelson’s Buildings features the rounded-edge roofs that most people imagine when they think about carports. This roof style is also the most popular style of roof among our Kentucky customers.

The roof is constructed out of sturdy stainless steel with stainless steel posts. People who choose this style of carport often express surprise at the strength of the posts and the quality of the construction.

Kentucky Carports – Boxed Eave Roof Style

If you want a carport that is even stronger for your home or business in Kentucky, you might want to choose a boxed eave roof style for your carport. While the boxed eave roof style is slightly more expensive, it is stronger than the traditional roof style.

The boxed eave roofs are A-frame roofs that have ridges running horizontally across the length. The ridges give the steel more surface area, which increases its strength. These also have steel linings running around the edges of the roofs and around the eaves to add even more support.

Kentucky Carports – Vertical Roof Style


Vertical roof carports in Kentucky

The vertical roof style is the heaviest-duty roof style that you can find in Kentucky for your next carport. This roof is an A-frame roof that has vertical ridges running through it. It also has steel plates and extra linings that are installed side by side for additional strength.

The vertical roof style is a great choice if you want the strongest carport that you can find in Kentucky. The vertical ridges add surface area while also allowing snow to slide off of the roof instead of building up on top.

How are the boxed eave roof carports different from the vertical roof carports?

Some customers are unsure how the boxed eave roof style and the vertical roof style are different from each other. The boxed eave roofs have sheeting that is installed along the length of the roof, and the ridges run horizontally. the vertical roofs have the sheeting installed side by side up to the roof’s peak so that the ridges run vertically. This allows snow to fall off from your roof instead of collecting on it.

Carports in KY Provide Protection

In Kentucky, people can enjoy all four seasons. The summers are warm and humid while the winters bring ice and snow. During the spring months, strong thunderstorms can bring hail, heavy rain, and tornadoes. The different types of weather that you might experience in Kentucky can cause damage to your cars, trucks, SUVs, tractors, farm equipment, ATVs, and lawn equipment. All of these items require a significant amount of money to purchase, making it worthwhile to protect them.

When you park your car outside in Kentucky, it will be unprotected from the weather. During the heavy storms of the spring months, your car can be damaged by hail, falling branches from trees, high winds, and heavy rains. During the summer, the sun beats directly down. The rays of the sun can damage the interior and the exterior of your car by fading the paint and causing cracks to form. Rain can cause rust to form. During the winter months, ice and snow can also damage your car.

Purchasing a steel carport from Nelson’s Buildings can allow you to protect all of your vehicles. Our buildings are strong and can withstand the changing weather conditions. Since they are made out of stainless steel, they also resist rust and require little maintenance. The carports come in many different sizes and heights, allowing you to purchase a carport that is large enough to accommodate all of your vehicles along with your other valuable possessions.

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.
