The common carports have a traditional flat roof design but you can also choose from designs such as arched, gabled, and peaked. Choosing the right carport roof is often based on how well it would look together with the design of the house. However, it would be best to consider the weather conditions in your area when choosing the design for the roof. If you are living in an area where there is heavy snow and rain, then a flat roof is not suitable since the rain and snow can only accumulate on the roof and add weight. A flat roof on places with high wind is perfect since it can withstand high winds. The wind simply flows around the shelter.
The time it takes for you to completely install a carport does depend a little on the style of roof that you will choose. A flat roof carport is probably the easiest option available. Almost all carport kits are nearly complete and you only need to put them together and bolt them tightly and securely with the aid of bolt fasteners. Flat roofs need to be assembled just like gabled, peaked and arched style of roof. A carport with enclosures can be a challenge during assembly but it is nothing that you wouldn’t be able to handle yourself. However, you may want to ask for help from your family or friends especially since the sides are a bit large.
