To better understand the installation process of a steel carport, many manufacturers offer steel carport building installation instructions (sometimes as a DVD) that will walk you through the process step-by-step. If you order something custom, the manufacturer should be able to provide you with a set of installation instructions tailored specifically to the application. Don’t be afraid to ask for instructions or plans before you make a purchase.

Here’s some things to look for in the installation instructions:

The installation instructions should include specifications for the concrete footing and specifications for the floor, which will save precious time as you are looking at bids from concrete contractors (or if you decide to do the concrete yourself).

Keep in mind that you may need a building permit before you begin construction. To obtain the permit you will need to submit the plans (drawings and structural specs) that are certified by an engineer. These plans will need the foundation and floor design.

You’ll also need to keep in mind the tools that you will need to finish the project. Ask for a list of the required tools so you won’t be running back and forth to the hardware store all day.

With a little planning and some preparation, your steel carport installation should be a breeze.
