Utility Carports with Side Entry
Our utility carports offer side entry for easy access to the enclosed storage units built in your carports. Better Metal Buildings has a large selection of customizable side entry carports and garages with utility-style buildings to provide covered and open space in the same steel building unit. Most side entry utility car ports have storage unit built at the end of the metal storage building, however, we offer complete customization so that you can add freestanding lean-tos or a storage unit on one of the lean-tos too. Instead of renting a mini-storage unit or purchasing/building a backyard storage barn, consider building a utility enclosure into your metal carport or steel canopy.
What are the uses of a side entry utility carport?
Our customers that have boat carports or equipment storage units utilize the storage part for fishing equipment, garden equipment, ski equipment, and for general purpose items to expand their house. Some of our customers use the carports with storage units to shelter their cars, trucks, or other vehicles and use the utility storage to store motorcycles, ATVs, indoor games, lawn movers, shoe racks, used furniture, and golf-carts. These combo carports can also be used as carport shelters and storage lawn and garden equipment. We have constructed fully enclosed metal workshops and garages with a porch on the end of the unit too. We can configure entries on the end or sides of the carports with storage buildings.
However, you wish to use your utility carport from Better Metal Buildings, our skilled customer team members can help you choose from our vast array of designs, features, and colors, helping you to create the perfect solution for your utility carport needs.
