HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR METAL CARPORT OR GARAGE
Selecting the right width for your custom metal carport or garage is important. You want to make sure the metal garage you order is wide enough for the vehicle or equipment for which you intend to house in it.
Metal Carports and Garages come in these standard widths: 12’, 18’, 20’, 22’, 24’, 26’, 28’, 30’, 32’, 36’, 38’, and 40’.
For reference, if you plan to park a single car, truck or RV the standard width is 12’.
If you plan to store more than one car, or larger equipment, use the approximate guide below to help you determine the estimated width needed:
12’ Single car, truck or RV
18’ Two compact cars
20’ Two midsized cars
22’ Two full-sized cars, trucks or SUV
24’ Two full or oversized cars or trucks
26’ Three midsized cars or trucks
All of our metal carport and garages can be customized to the length that you need. The industry standard length for metal garages is 21’, 26’, 31’, and up in 5’ increments. If you plan to use the garage for any purpose other than storing cars, like storing family bikes or other sports equipment, you may want to consider a longer carport/garage. If you are looking to just store a standard mid-sized car, 21’ should suit you just fine. We also offer standard metal garages that will fit most standard sized cars.
Garage height is measured by the side height, meaning the height on the sides of the metal structure, not from the very top point of the roof to the ground. Side height is used to make sure a vehicle can clear the lowest point of the garage. The standard option is 6’ height with the height requirements increasing to 8’ for any structure 32’ or wider. If you have plans to install additional features such as a garage door in the future, it is best to get the necessary height now so the structure is tall enough to accommodate a garage door.
