Despite being easy to assemble, Pioneer Carports are also designed to stand up to the roughest weather. Having one can give you peace of mind that both your vehicle and your carport will not suffer damage during a rainstorm, windstorm, or snowstorm.

What is a Carport, and how Does it Differ from a Garage?

A carport is a covered structure that normally consists of a roof supported by posts. These tough, durable structures can be placed in your driveway, patio, or yard to help protect your vehicle when you don’t have an indoor storage option.

Pioneer Carports are Open-style Structures

Unlike a garage, a carport has no walls or doors. Although carports are an open-style structure, they can still provide vehicles with a level of protection against rain, snow, ice, or sun exposure. In fact, in the cold weather, frost will not normally form on the windsheild of a vehicle that is parked underneath a carport.

Pioneer Carports consist of a strong, sturdy rust and corrosion-resistant powder coated steel frame, and a 29-gauge galvanized steel roof that is treated to prevent corrosion and is designed to also protect your vehicle from tree limbs and other objects that can fall from the sky.

An Pioneer Carport does not need to be attached to a foundation to stay on the ground. Instead, anchors are used to keep it secured*. However, they are engineered to stand up to the test. It can withstand up to 100 MPH winds and up to 35 PSF snow loads. Additionally, since it is not considered to be a permanent structure, it may not be considered taxable property in most municipalities.

Pioneer Carports Also Offer Versatility

An Pioneer Carport can be used for more than just a vehicle shelter. Since an Pioneer Carport doesn’t require a foundation, these structures can be moved from place to place, and used for multiple purposes.

For example, if you are having a picnic, you could disassemble and move your Pioneer Carport from the driveway to the backyard and use it as a protective cover over a patio or seating area. It doesn’t have to be a one-time move, either: An Pioneer Carport can be used primarily as a patio or pavilion cover year round. It can also be used to cover workshop space, children’s playground equipment, and more.

With a carport enclosure, you can also use your carport like it’s a garage or an outdoor shed all year long. Carport covers are easy to install, give your stored items or vehicles extra protection from the elements, and provide extra privacy and an additional sense of security.

Pioneer Carports are Not Just for the Home

An Pioneer Carport is not just a shelter made for use in your driveway or your backyard at home. A free standing carport can also be used in a municipal or business setting to protect people from the rain, snow, or the sun’s harmful UV rays.

A municipality can use an Pioneer Carport as a protective cover for a park picnic area. In times where social distancing is important, smaller carports can be used to create spaced-out covered areas that families can use to have lunch or take a break from their activities.

In addition, an Pioneer Carport can be used to create a pavilion that can be used for special events, concerts, and more. The pavilion can be rented out for parties, meetings, community events, and more, and can deliver a positive return on investment for the community.

With restaurants looking to expand their year-round outdoor seating options, an Pioneer Carport can be used to cover an existing patio area, or to create a new outdoor dining area in a parking lot or next to a building. The structure can stay up all year long without worrying that a severe storm could knock it down.

An Pioneer Carport can also be used in an office park or industrial park as a protective cover for an outdoor break area, as space where outdoor staff meetings can be held, and even as a spot to host client gatherings and business receptions.

Also, an Pioneer Carport can be used on the farm to store equipment such as tractors, trailers, hay bailers, grain haulers, and plows, or at a construction site for vehicles and equipment such as payloaders, augers, backhoes, cherry pickers, and cement mixers.

We always recommend a properly anchored structure. Please reference your manual for anchoring best practices or check out this anchor guide. Wind and snow loads given are for reference only and assume a securely anchored frame according to local building codes and ordinances. These have been calculated using combined snow and wind load provisions in accordance with ASCE 7-05. These calculations are based on an unoccupied, fully enclosed building. Local building code requirements vary by location; conformance to local codes is the responsibility of the purchaser. Before you buy a temporary garage, we recommend you check with your local zoning department to see if you need a permit or other permissions to erect one on your property.
