Why We Build Steel Carports

Over the past few decades, steel carports and buildings have grown in popularity. Today’s economic climate and the concerted effort on the part of homeowners and the construction industry to adopt more environmentally sensitive products and methods make steel carports and steel buildings even more desirable.

Metal and steel construction is becoming an increasingly popular choice for warehouses, churches, gyms, community centers, schools, retail outlets, sports and riding arenas, livestock barns, storage facilities, airplane hangars, even homes. And Realtors nationwide say that a steel carport can significantly boost your property’s value.

Quality carports of any type construction are property value boosters. They offer homeowners protection for their cars, trucks, RVs, boats and other vehicles, whether an enclosed carport or open carport configuration. Enclosed steel carports can be used in an endless variety of fashions, from simple storage buildings to decorated kids’ playrooms, professionally outfitted automotive and wood workshops to decked-out man caves. With the right insulation and soundproofing, you can even turn your enclosed steel carport into a working music recording and mixing studio.

Steel carports by Keen’s Buildings are constructed with heavy-duty 29-gauge standard steel panels and 14-gauge standard steel tubular framing. We use steel because it’s durable, environmentally friendly, attractive and economical. A certified steel carport is guaranteed to withstand heavy snow loads and wind speeds of 110mph and 130mph to meet all city, county and state building code and permitting requirements. It’s not at the mercy of wood boring pests like termites, and it’s resistant to mold and mildew growth. And at the end of its usable life, it’s 100% recyclable.

Steel carports are cost effective, too. On average, building a steel carport will cost you 40% to 50% less than more conventional construction materials and methods. Despite the savings, installation of an open or enclosed steel carport will increase your property’s resale value and prompt a quicker sale, according to Realtors.
