Aluminum Carport that is made from Alumawood materials, same as the Alumawood Patio Covers.

The only difference between "Carports" and "Patio Covers" is that through insurance issues the "Carports" have to be designed with a minimum Live Load of 20 Pounds Per Square Foot where as the "Patio Covers" are only required to have a minimum Live Load of 10 Pounds Per Square Foot.

Note that this becomes irrelevent in areas where any cover whether is be a "Carport" or a "Patio Cover" requires a 20 Pound Live Load or higher such as a 25 Pound Ground Snow Load, at that point both covers are basically identical; besides the load requirement there are absolutely no differences other than "commercial" and "carport" covers are allowed to have taller posts (up to 18' vs 12').

This is also true of the Classic "W" Carports and Classic "W" Patio Covers, same rules apply.

So in an attempt to not have duplicate content on our website almost all of the information for the Alumawood Carports can be found under the Alumawood Patio Covers; just keep in mind the cover has to be a minimum of a 20 pound live load. Thats it except for the post height note above!
