12×20 Tube Carport

A 12x20 metal carport from General Steel is a great option for protecting a single car, ATVs, or lawn tractors. If you live in a region with a volatile climate, our 100% American-made I-beam carports provide the most reliable protection from the elements. If your carport will be constructed in a temperate climate with consistent conditions, a light gauge carport could be a more suitable option. Our building experts are happy to discuss your options.
