Frequently Asked Questions

Which areas do you services?
We deliver and install throughout California, Oregon, Washington, border line cities in Idaho and Nevada.
Can I order a building and install it myself?
Absolutely, you can install our buildings yourself (No instructions provided). Although we do not charge for delivery or installation on your level land. You can pick up the materials or we can deliver the materials for those customers who would prefer DIY projects.
How long before you contact me to schedule for delivery?
We contact all customers 1-3 days prior to installation.
Do I need a permit for my building?
The customer(s) is responsible for any permit(s) that are required in the area. The best place to find out if a permit is required would be at your local county and/or city building department. Professional licensed engineered plans are available at an additional cost.

Please contact our office for cost.

How long will it take for the carport to be completely assembled and installed?
Most of our products are assembled in a day. In some cases, it may take two days depending upon the size of the building. Larger buildings may take up to a week.
Do these structures build up condensation?
Yes, it is very normal for this structure to build up condensation, so we do recommend going with our vertical roof style and adding our vapor barrier.
Will I have any leaks in my structure?
Most of the time we can expect for your building not to leak. If you are buying a structure longer than 31’ long, we highly recommend the vertical roof to prevent any leaks. Also please keep in mind we DO NOT SEAL THE BASE RAIL, so it is normal to have water under base rail. For this we recommend for the customer to seal the base rail after installation.
Should I be able to see any light coming in my building?
Because the way our buildings are designed you will be able to see some light coming in where the side panels come together with the end panels. We do offer foam strips at an additional cost to prevent this from occurring.
Where is the best location for my building?
The key to a successful installation of any of our products is to make sure that our product is installed on a leveled, squared surface. We do not perform any site preparation or do any concrete work.
Do you offer insulation?
We offer insulation services at an additional cost.

Site Preparation
• Site preparation is very important for a good installation. As a reminder we are not responsible for any site prep. Below are a few steps that will help with building installation:
• Mark all underground lines if any on or around site area.
• Land must be squared and leveled. Call for more details.
• Minimum workspace of 2-3ft around entire structure.
• When overhead power lines are involved, a minimum of 10 ft is needed, or power lines must be completely shut off.
