Most of our pricing is baseline, but in some areas where state and county laws require, we may have to certify your building or add extra supports(more steel). This increases the overall price of the building and is done to ensure the safety of the Carport in your area. A good rule of thumb: if your carport will be located in a state or area that usually has heavy snow,rain, or strong winds, the expectation should be that pricing will be higher in your area. If you find a company that is providing outrageously cheap pricing, be careful as the safety of your carport could become a concern, or your building may not be meeting the required certifications for your state. This could result in much larger issues for you in the future.
