The Kootenay wood and steel carport combines the natural beauty of wood with the strength and durability of steel. This sturdy DIY carport kit system provides you with the right size and quantity of steel trusses, metal roofing, braces/fasteners and wood to fit your storage needs. You can choose to order a full kit, or just the steel trusses, braces, post boots and fasteners to customize with wood and roofing which you supply.
This timber frame style carport provides a snow load rating estimated at over 90 pounds per square foot. Our patented and CSA approved welded steel trusses, post boots and brackets support a recommended 26 gauge ribbed metal roof. An eaves trough can also be attached on each side.
