Permitting my Metal Building or Carport

Updated: Nov 8, 2023

Not sure whether you need to permit your Metal Building, Barn, Shop or Carport? Most likely the answer is "yes" you would need to permit your garage, shop or carport. There are a few exceptions. Agriculture exemption is the most common.

You can contact your City or County Planning department to find out about permits. We have this checklist that we like our customer's to fill out and get back to us so that we can properly quote your #Carport or #MetalBuilding.

  1. Ground snow load psf?

  2. Roof or live load psf?

  3. Wind rating?

  4. Whats your ground surface?

  5. Does your City or County require Calculations along with Engineered Drawings?

Right now in 2023, plans and calculations are taking around 4-6 weeks to obtain. Our delivery and installation across the country is anywhere from 10 days to 12 weeks depending on location and based on weather.
