How to Build Classic Sunjoy Outdoor Gable Roof Metal Carport?
Are you still troubled by the lack of a garage or due to the high volume of vehicles, the garage cannot be parked? Carports are a great alternative or an addition to your garage. Carports provide storage and protection for your vehicle, and the best part about them is that they are relatively simple to build.🙌

There are many styles of carports, how should we choose? Having carefully selected the perfect carport, how should we properly build it?

Today Sunjoy will take a classic metal carport as an example to explain its build steps step by step.👏

  • How to Choose Perfect Carport Guard Your Car? 
  • Outdoors Size and Space Arrangement for Carport
  • A suitable carport, of course, must take into account the size. You can choose the right one according to the size of your outdoors and the space you want to give to the carport. If you have a large backyard, you can choose a large-size carport, Sunjoy's current largest carport size is 14x20 ft., other sizes also have ample space that can cover small and medium-sized vehicles completely.🌿

  • The Number and Size of Your Vehicle
  • The choice of the carport must be related to the number and size of your vehicle. You can choose a suitable size carport for your cars. Our carports are large enough to cover the vast majority of vehicles completely. We offer you a choice of three sizes to choose the right carport for your needs.🚗

  • You Can Pick The Material That You Need
  • Our current carport styles are generally made of steel or polycarbonate for the roof and steel or wood for the frame. 

    The steel roof is sturdy and durable, and the polycarbonate roof is translucent, with a high appearance and a sense of atmosphere. The steel frame is relatively hard and wear-resistant, and the wooden frame is more textured and blends into nature.🍃

  • You Can Pick The Style That You Like
  • We have 3 particularly classic carports, ranging from stylish translucent roof carports to very textured wood frame carports.

    Roof triangle construction provides stability and has a ceiling hook provided for suspending lighting.

    In both style and function, all three carports are excellent. 

    Come and choose your favorite carport! 🥰

  • How to Install Metal Carport to Any Surface
  • Metal carports are heavy, which allows them to hold still well in wind and heavy rain, as long as the installation is firm enough to withstand its forces. Ensuring that the posts will not move over time for long-term safety and stability. A good installation will make the carport stand the test longer.🥳

    Let’s take a look at what to do.

  • How to Install a Carport to a Lawn Surface?

  • How to Install a Carport to Wood and Concrete Surface 
  • Now comes the part that might confuse you, how to install the carport on a concrete surface. Fortunately, attaching the carport to the wood surface, paving stones, patio stones, or even concrete works the same way.

    Installing a carport on concrete doesn't have to be a daunting task. This becomes very easy if you have the right equipment at the ready, like a drill, bolts, or rods. You will need to buy these accessories separately at your local hardware store.

    Use Bolt down the legs to secure a carport to concrete. If you decide to use bolts, you will need a drill to help you out. Sunjoy carports already have holes in their feet, simply set up your carport, mark the point on the concrete surface where the bolt should go, and start drilling. Once done you can secure the carport to the concrete surface with the bolt. Repeat this procedure for all 4 legs. Please confirm the position you want, once drilled, it cannot be changed.👏
