If you have valuables you need to store outside of your home, there are reasons aplenty to choose a steel storage building by Carport Empire. Growing up, I remember a small, wooden storage shed that stored my parents’ paperwork and sometimes doubled as my playhouse. I also remember seeing that wooden shed come down, weakened by the Florida sun, rain and one nasty termite infestation. These are just a few of the reasons that steel makes more sense for storage buildings of any size.
Unlike wooden sheds, steel storage buildings are resistant to damage by exposure to the sun and rain. Carport Empire’s certified steel storage buildings also are engineered to withstand heavy snow loads for our cold-weather clients, and winds of 110 mph, 130 mph and 150 mph – an important consideration if you live in areas that are prone to tornadoes and hurricanes (in fact, steel homes are popular choices in many of these areas). Steel storage buildings also are safer in high wind and earthquake-prone areas, because steel sways while other materials like brick or concrete crumbles.
With a steel storage building, you’ll also avoid costly damages by termites and other wood boring bugs and critters. Carport Empire’s steel storage buildings and other structures, including automobile and motorhome carports, covers and enclosed garages, are built completely wood-free. And steel is less susceptible to fire damage too. So, whether you’re storing important paperwork and family records, Grandma’s antique armoire or your favorite fishing rods, a steel storage building makes the best choice for protection.
Whether you have a personal travel bus or a fleet of sleek, shining corporate tour buses, these vehicles represent a major financial investment. Protect that investment with a high quality bus canopy, bus cover or bus garage. Parking your bus under a steel bus canopy or bus cover or inside a bus garage from Carport Empire protects it from the affects of the sun, wind, snow and rain, preventing extensive damage to the rubber and fiberglass components of your vehicle. And, it can help keep your bus’ or motorhome’s interior cooler during the hot summer months by shielding it from the sun.
In choosing the right bus canopy, bus cover or bus garage, be sure to specify your vehicle’s length and height. Don’t forget to calculate clearance of air conditioner units and other items mounted on the roof of your bus. Carport Empire offers open bus canopies and bus covers with widths from 12 feet up to 40 feet. The length of your bus canopy, bus cover or enclosed bus garage is unlimited and can be customized for single port, double port and triple port bus canopies, covers and enclosed garages.
For the best possible protection, your bus canopy, cover or garage can be certified, which means they’re engineered to withstand heavy snow loads and wind speeds of 110 mph, 130 mph and 150 mph. Certification also ensures that your bus cover, canopy or garage will meet any city, county and state regulations specific to your area. Carport Empire operates in all 48 contiguous states and our professional installers know exactly what to look for in local permitting requirements to guarantee that you will be in compliance.
It sounds simple and affordable: buy a do-it-yourself canopy kit, garage kit or steel or metal building kit and skip the extra costs of a professional installation. After all, the kits come with all the easy-to-read instructions and diagrams. How hard can it be, right? Perhaps the actual assembly of a canopy kit, garage kit or steel or metal building kit is easy enough. But there are multiple factors that must be taken into consideration and handled correctly and safely before you grab your hammer and nails.
A top priority is ensuring that the space you select for your canopy, garage or steel or metal building is a safe distance from any underground wire, gas lines or utility lines and that the ground where the unit will be placed has been completely leveled. Also, some cities, counties and states require that structures be certified, which means they meet specified engineering codes. This certification assures that your canopy, garage or steel or metal building can withstand wind and snow loads and comes only with professional installation.
Carport Empire’s installation professionals know what to look for and how to make sure your canopy, garage or steel or metal building meets building codes and permitting requirements in your area – and installation is no extra charge. We do ask that you ascertain the locations of underground wire, gas lines and utility lines prior to our beginning work at your property. If you’re unable to level the site ground, Carport Empire can dig the base rail into the ground for an extra cost.
With professional installation offered at no extra cost, why hassle with the DIY canopy kits, garage kits or steel or metal building kits and risk the high costs of mistakes? For instance, a building that fails to meet or exceed building codes can be ordered demolished, and hitting an underground wire or gas line can be dangerous.

Living near the water – salt or fresh – is all the reason in the world to buy a beautiful boat. Now, make sure you protect that investment with a high quality boat canopy, boat cover or boat garage. Whether you’re a health-conscious adventurer looking for a paddle canoe, an avid fisherman who enjoys a relaxing day casting lines from the bow of a bass boat, or the social type planning to entertain friends on your new party pontoon, you’ll want to protect your investment from damaging natural elements above and below the water’s surface.
If you keep your boat docked, adding a boat canopy or boat cover over your dock or boat lift will help protect your vessel from above-the-surface elements including rain and snow, and leaves, limbs and other debris falling from trees. Boat canopies and boat covers also can be outfitted with small, enclosed rooms for storage of boating supplies.
When keeping your boat inland to protect it from water damage and leaks, consider an enclosed boat garage. A boat garage offers protection from the elements, plus the added security of being able to lock the boat away, keeping out of reach of vandals and critters.
