The team at Indaco Metals has created this comprehensive guide on the relationship between carports and weather. As experts in steel roofs, carports, and buildings, we’ve heard every question and myth about carports. Our team knows the important role a carport can play in safeguarding your vehicles against the diverse elements nature throws their way.
For over 30 years, we’ve manufactured the highest quality steel buildings, metal roofing, and carports in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and the surrounding states. We know the weather here can be wild, so we’ll walk through every season and discuss how steel carports stack up. We will explore how our metal carports provide a reliable shield, ensuring your vehicles or other equipment remain protected every season.
If your carport questions are about more than withstanding the weather, check out our post “Everything You Should Know Before Buying A Carport.”
An Introduction to Carports and Inclement Conditions
The need for a robust shelter for your car, machinery, or farming equipment becomes even more pronounced in regions prone to storms and adverse weather conditions. Indaco Metals has two locations in Oklahoma (Sand Springs and Shawnee), and we’re accustomed to doing business with people throughout “tornado alley” including Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. The position of the central plains states place us in a region where weather systems routinely meet and produce extreme weather conditions–not just during tornado season.
Our metal carports stand firm throughout all types of stormy weather, offering a secure refuge for your vehicles when the skies and winds unleash their fury. The durable construction of our steel roofs ensures your vehicles are shielded in every season. We’ll get into the details throughout the article, but it’s important that our clients know extreme weather conditions are an expected and essential part of our business.

Spring: Embracing Rapid Weather Changes
As nature wakes from its winter slumber, spring brings fresh air and a vibrant renewal of life. Yet, with this change comes the challenge of unpredictable weather patterns. Our metal carports seamlessly adapt to the changes in the spring season, providing a reliable shield against spring showers and sudden temperature fluctuations.
During spring, the open sides of our carports continue to play an important role. The design allows for unhindered airflow, preventing moisture buildup that could lead to rust or other issues. Carports also protect falling berries, excessive pollen, or other natural droppings from spring trees.
Late spring often includes thunderstorms and hail. The strategic design of our carports minimizes the risk of damage during storms. Our steel roofs' sturdy framework and high-quality materials provide a reliable defense, giving you peace of mind even in severe weather. The strength of steel will withstand higher wind speeds and provide better protection than carports made of aluminum or weaker metals.
Summer: Hot Sun and Metal Carports
The scorching heat of summer can wreak havoc on your vehicles, from sun damage to uncomfortably hot interiors. Our metal carports act as a formidable defense against the relentless summer sun. Crafted with precision, the reflective surface of the steel roof efficiently deflects the sun's rays, preventing excess heat from permeating through. This ensures a cooler environment for your vehicle and prolongs its overall lifespan. Many of our customers also choose lighter colors for their steel carports so that the metal doesn’t absorb as much heat during the hot 100+ degree days.
The open sides also allow for natural ventilation. As the air circulates freely, it creates a cooler environment (compared to trapping the air inside), reducing the risk of overheating. Investing in a metal carport is not just about protection; it's a commitment to preserving the condition of your vehicles during the sweltering summer months.
Fall: Rain, Wind, and the Resilience of Steel
As autumn begins, it also brings a medley of weather challenges. Rain showers and brisk winds become the norm, posing threats to the exterior of your car or machinery. Here, the durability of our metal carports shines. Our steel carports block and divert rainwater away, preventing the water from reaching your vehicle's surface.
Winter: Carports Withstand Frost, Snow, and Cold Temperatures
Winter brings new kinds of inclement weather, including snow, ice, harsh winds, and bitter cold. When discussing carports, we often hear about frost-covered windshields and the weight of accumulated snow.
Our carports are built to withstand these challenges with unmatched resilience. The robust structure of the metal roof resists the accumulation of snow, preventing it from burdening your vehicle. A steel carport from Indaco Metals can mean no more early mornings shoveling snow or scraping ice.
Beyond snow protection, our metal carports also help address condensation. The elevated design allows for proper ventilation, minimizing the chances of frost buildup. Winter may be harsh, but with our steel carports, your vehicle can endure it.
Customization for Every Climate: Tailoring Metal Roofs to Your Needs
One size does not fit all when it comes to carports. We understand that different climates demand tailored solutions. Our metal carports come with the option for customization, allowing you to choose features that align with specific weather challenges or your preferences.
The flexibility in design ensures that your possessions receive optimal protection, no matter the weather conditions.
