We gotcha covered!
Buyer beware of anyone who tries to install any type of patio cover canopy and lay it up on top of your roof. Don't get bite by the carport/patio cover Sharks!
Time to call up the crew and get them over to watch the big games out on your new patio cover or screen room. Time to get some family and friends together and create some memories together. Time to protect them from the SUN while adding value to your home instead of taking away from it.
It is also Carport season with all of the stuff that will be falling from the trees this fall. Did you know that Oklahoma second wettest month is September? The Winter season right around the corner it is time to protect your vehicles.
Got hail? Tired of running for some shelter every time a thunderstorm is headed your way? Tired of scrapping the ice and the snow off of your car? Is our sizzling hot summer sun just baking the finish off of your ride? Are the trees spitting all kinds of stuff and dropping that sticky tree sap or acorns on your vehicle? Protect your vehicle's investments and keep them looking good so you can keep them nice much longer.
The Spring / Summer / Fall are storms seasons on the Southern Plains which has some really unique weather conditions. Besides our sizzling hot summer seasons that can bake the finish off of your vehicles. We can get really strong and severe or an outright wicked and wild thunderstorm that can produce heavy rains, large hail, abnormally high and very damaging winds drafts and even tornados. As of matter fact Oklahoma has more tornados per square mile than any other State.
When the winds come swiping down the southern plains, Oklahoma's weather is not like any other place on earth! Last year we didn't very many tornadoes like we normal do, but we received a lot of hail. The weather people are calling 2021 "The year of the Hail" and 2022 the year of the drought. Who know what we are going to get in 2023 but we have three days of tornados out-brakes this year. When building any type of outdoor canopy structure with our unique Oklahoma weather conditions, high winds and live loads must be taken into consideration.
Any and all of the building material has their own unique limitations of what they should be used for and that should not be surpassed. There are various deferent thicknesses and types of building materials used to construct anyone building structure depending on the structure's unique applications.
The taller a canopy structures might be the more upload lifts wind drafts the structure is going to get under the canopy structure and it wants to take flight up in the air or they just be torn apart.
The larger canopy frame must be built to withstand these unique weather conditions. Most parts of the country might see 35-mph wind loads so their product may not work very well in our weather conditions. Here we see 85 -100 plus mph winds loads all the time.
What works in one part of the country, might not work around here because they may not see all kinds of winds that those structures are not built for. That is why we tell people not to use any prefabricated kits you might see at the big box stores. Some come from overseas, and most are not built to our building standards. Get protected with a safe and secure well-built perinate canopy structure.
Same goes for the larger patio covers structures. The wider and or the longer the open spins might be the larger and stronger the poles and the cross beams must be.
Do not scamp out on the poles and beams. The frame is what holds the entire structure up! The larger pole and beams are the higher with structure can withstand higher weather eliminates. It does not matter what type of canopy top the structure has on it. The structure is what does all of the heavy lifting. It all starts with the frame!
A carport is no longer just a luxury item, it is a necessity to protect your vehicle investments!
Be prepared to shelter your vehicles!

If your vehicles are currently stored outside and is exposed to the weather elements, we suggest investigating the possibility of purchasing a custom built perinate carport canopy structure to protect your valuable vehicle investments.
Get prepared and shelter your valuable vehicles under new carport structure.
Don't let Mother Nature damage or wreak your vehicle, machinery or other investments. Our vehicles cost a lot more and they are normally our second most valuable investments that we make. Our vehicles are not getting any cheaper so get prepared and protect your vehicle's.
Your vehicle(s) or RVs is something that probably took you a long time to save up to purchase. In fact, you may still be paying for them and there would be nothing worse than having it damage due to just one of our hailstorms. We all want to keep our vehicle(s) in tip-top shape to resell them at the highest price possible.
Most of the people that we build for say they should have done it sooner than they did.
Carports pay for themselves several times over their lifespan. We work hard to educate our customers how a carport pays for itself with your ROI (return on investment) being really high. If just one of your vehicles was to get damaged what happens after your insurance pays to have it repaired.
1. Customer must pay the ins deductible.
2. Vehicle title gets marked as being damaged.
3. Vehicles value plumets as you got a wholesale valued vehicle not a frontline valued vehicle and more than likely sold to a wholesale buyer. Just like the vehicle had been wreaked. A mark title is just that...
4. To a train eye you a spot a vehicle finished has been repainted and repaired. Especially a couple of years later. As the sun will take its toll on even the best paint repair.
I can testify to that as two years ago, I had a old truck repainted down one side. Now the clearcoat is bubbling up and coming off. I went to take it back and the body shop but they have sold to new owners.
Portable - Able to be moved - especially because of lighter weight.
Temporary - Lasting for only a limited time -
Not Permanent - PUT UP AND TAKE BACK DOWN. like you're tailgating at the game.

There are standard code requirements that should be meet or your structure could be at risk. Each and every building material has their own building engineering requirements and limits to what they should safely be used for, or you risk the entire structure.
During one of our extreme weather events, the roof is one of the most vulnerable areas of a structure. But it is the frame of the structure that does all of the heavy lifting. The larger or heavier the understructure framing members are the higher the wind / snow load the structure can withstand.
A good wind seismic performance and engineering are critical and very important to any type of structure design. With that being said there such a thing as an engineered or a non-engineered structure.
A standard build code requirement is a minimum building standard that should be followed. A customer might have their own building standards requirements that is above and of course that is alright as well.

Put simply Aluminum is a non-furous metal that cannot rust and requires less ongoing maintenance such as staining and sealing or on going painting.
You can beat the paint off any aluminum product, and it won't never rust.
Steel has zinc in the metal, and it will rust. Aluminum is strong and lightweight.
Carport canopies are much like a patio covers and vice-versa and are used for several different purposes. Such as sidewalks, entryway, and store front covers. Some might use window awnings as shade from the sun, but they also used as protection from our hailstorms that has beat up on some local store front in our recent past with broken store front windows. Protection from the weather such as the heat from the sun's rays beating down on a front door handle that can burn your skin to the touch. Some might just need a need a new architectural look from a basic ole standard metal building look to set themselves apart from the others.

- Today - Solar Carports & Patio Covers- We can use a very thin-film and flexible type of solar modules that can be installed over low-load-capacity roofs that prove challenging for conventional crystalline solar panels and rack systems because the carport roofs can’t support the added weight. Most were not designed and built to add any additional weight up on top of them. Today’s flexible modules use a factory-applied butyl-based self-adhesive. Installed with this simple peel-and-stick adhesive, flexible modules become an integrated part of the roof system and have the same wind uplift and seismic performance characteristics of the roof system itself.
03/2023 Solar shingles, or solar roof tiles, are made of slim photovoltaic (PV) sheets that either overlay or replace the existing shingles on a roof are now available.
