Louisiana Carports – Regular Roof Style


Regular roof carports in Louisiana

Metal carports that have regular or traditional roof styles in Louisiana have gambrel roofs. These roofs are made out of steel for good durability and protection. As the most economical option, our regular roof carports are also the most popular among our Louisiana customers.

The regular roof carports have strong frames and are dependable. The stainless steel roofs help to ensure that these steel carports will last for a long time in Louisiana. You can pick the color that you prefer and customize the size of your regular roof carport.

Carports with a regular roof style are simple to set up. Nelson’s Buildings offers free delivery and installation services across Louisiana, so you will not have to try to figure out how to set yours up after you receive it.

Louisiana Carports – Boxed Eave Roof Style


Boxed Eave roof carports in Louisiana

Carports with boxed eave roofs are slightly more expensive than our regular roof carports, but they have greater durability. These carports have A-frame roofs that have horizontal ridges. The ridges make the roofs stronger by increasing the steel’s surface area to help it withstand the hail and heavy rains that are common in Louisiana.

Our Louisiana boxed eave carports also have steel lining running along the edges for added strength. They also have steel panels to support the roof and to make it stronger.

Like our other carports, you can customize your boxed eave carport on our website. Once you place your order and pay your deposit, we will deliver it to you and set it up for free anywhere in Louisiana.

Louisiana Carports – Vertical Roof Style


Vertical roof carports in Louisiana

The vertical roof carports are the strongest options for Louisiana residents. The vertical roofs combine A-frame structures with vertical ridges, which helps rain, ice, and snow to slide off easily.

These carports also have additional steel panels to increase their strength. While they are more expensive than the other roof styles in Louisiana, vertical roof carports are worth your investment. You can use them to park your vehicles throughout the year or to serve as pavilions for outdoor events.

Nelson’s Buildings delivers our vertical roof carports all over Lousiana for free. When you purchase your carport, we will deliver and set it up for you quickly so that you can start protecting your vehicles and other property.

What is the difference between a boxed eave roof and a vertical roof?

Vertical Roof Style Carport Nelson's Buildings

Vertical Roof Style Carport

Many people are confused about how the boxed eave roof carports differ from the vertical roof carports at Nelson’s Buildings. The vertical roof carports have metal sheeting installed side by side with vertical ridges so that snow and other precipitation slide off instead of pooling. The boxed eave roof style has sheets that run lengthwise across the roof. Since Louisiana receives so much precipitation, it might make more sense for you to choose a vertical roof carport instead of a boxed eave roof carport.

Carports in LA Provide Protection

There are several advantages to purchasing a carport in Louisiana. Weather in the state can be unpredictable, and the summers can be very hot. When you purchase a carport, you can protect it from the following elements:

  • Sun
  • Rain
  • Hail
  • Wind
  • Ice
  • Snow

The Louisiana sun can especially wreak havoc. Over time, the rays can cause your paint to fade. The rays of the sun can also lead to cracks in the leather upholstery in the interior. Parking your vehicles under your carport can protect them from damage caused by the various elements. Carports also can be set up in other areas of your yard to serve as picnic areas or shaded places for your friends to gather. Parking your vehicle under a carport can also help to keep the interior cooler so you won’t have to get into an unbearably hot car during the summer months.

Nelson’s buildings offers a variety of carport sizes to Louisiana residents. You can choose a standard carport with dimensions of 12 x 21 feet or opt for a wider width from 18 feet to 24 feet. You can also choose a longer carport ranging from 26 feet to 41 feet, and we can also make your carport longer in increments of five feet. Because of the ability to customize their carports, our customers come back to us to meet their needs and refer their friends to us.

If you want a steel carport that is wider than 24 feet, we can accommodate you. We have triple-width carports from 26 feet to 30 feet. These wider structures are perfect for Louisianans who have multiple cars or who have several different types of vehicles such as boats, RVs, farm equipment, trucks, and SUVs.

If you want an even larger metal carport, we offer a lean-to metal barn carport that comes in widths ranging from 36 feet to 48 feet. If you want your steal lean-to carport to be longer than 21 feet, we can add length in increments of five feet until we reach the size that meets your needs.

We offer free delivery and installation anywhere in Louisiana, including the following metropolitan areas:

  • Baton Rouge
  • Bossier City
  • Kenner
  • Lafayette
  • Lake Charles

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.
