What size do I need to make the concrete pad?
We recommend having your slab poured to the exact footprint of the building but we can always install a building on a bigger slab if that is what the customer already has existing. Once an order is placed you can request concrete specs.
What are the dimensions of the carport outside to outside?
Width x Length x Height (ex. 18 x 21 x 5)
Length dimension is measured by the roof metal with 6″ overhang on each end. Therefore, the bottom base rail is one foot shorter than the roof. Width is measured from outside base rail to the other outside base rail.
What is the highest leg height I can order?
12’ is a standard leg height and anything above 12’ can be done but they are considered custom.
How much adjustment do you have to level your carport?
You about 2-3 inches to work with.
