Custom built carports are a better product than metal carport kits : Why?

metal carport

We get asked every day: “Why would I pay a premium for your crews to build my metal carport when I can buy steel carport kits that are easy to assemble for cheaper?”

The answer to that question partially depends on how handy you are. Carport kit manufacturers love to tell you how easy to assemble their kits, but it may not be that simple if you struggle with Ikea furniture.

It also depends on how time sensitive your project is and what kind of help you will have. For example, our buildings have a 4-6 week lead time, but once we get to your property, we will build your metal carport in just a couple of hours.

We will go over a steel carport kit and how it compares to a custom built steel carport from Leland’s.

What are metal carport kits?

Carport kits are not custom built carports. Carport kits come in a big box that contains all the materials to create a metal carport but not the carport builders.

You have to build it yourself, and because of this, the process might take longer than usual, and it will require more time and effort than any other type of frame structure.

How is a custom built metal carport different than metal carport kits?

On the other hand, a custom-made metal carport is built by our expert crews for you based on your specifications. Each detail can be customized as you want so that we can produce exactly what you’re looking for!

A custom built carport will provide you with a better product than a kit since you will have someone who is an expert in their field working on it. They can customize it to fit your needs, including the measurements and material of the structure.

Customization is Key

Customization is essential when it comes to making your home feel like yours. Unfortunately, carport kits just don’t have that unique custom feel. You don’t want a cookie-cutter home, so why would you build a cookie-cutter steel carport?

Custom-built carports are better than kits because they are designed to fit your home and property. They come in a variety of styles and sizes. Custom built carports can also be installed on ground that isn’t perfectly level. This can save you money in the long run if you don’t have to have property grading done.

A custom steel carport is better than a carport kit. They use the same materials and construction methods as a home but with fewer parts and more straightforward construction. In addition, a custom carport can be customized to fit any size vehicle or boat, with openings for more light or awnings to protect your cars from damage.
