Let's build a scenario. We are searching online for a carport because we just realized it is finally in the budget this year. First stop? Google. We type in Commercial Carports. A long list arrives on our page and we begin sifting through the various websites, searching for that one answer;
What we forget when asking this question is the more important, underlying question that could potentially haunt you after only a few years or one mishap.
That Question is:
“Quality and workmanship for the price?”
So often, we concern ourselves with the cost of something that we fail to recognize the hidden threat of replacement and hassle looming in our near future. How do we know if the quality matches the cost? USA Eagle Carports to the rescue!!! Here is a list of things you should ask your potential carport builder when gathering quotes.
1. What materials are being used?
USA Eagle is dedicated to providing a quality product near the price for a simple kit. We install 1) rectangular steel tubing for posts to strengthen support, 2) thicker metal sheet decking to handle design loads, and 3) welded structures that will not loosen over time. In most cases, USA Eagle will *match ‘competent’ bids, when bidding for like-kind carports. (*varies based on location, site specifics, and timeframe of install)
See our post Let's Talk Materials for more information!
2. Who will you be working with?
USA Eagle is known for providing the manpower and equipment necessary to have a quick turnaround during the install phase. Our customers will not have to worry about a long, slow process that could potentially harm profits. We have recently installed over 1700 spaces in 4 weeks for one project. We understand the needs of our customers and we don’t expect them to walk us through every aspect of an install.
3. Can the price change?
USA Eagle’s goal in bidding is to provide a solid turnkey ‘furnish and install’ price. We know many factors can affect plans and every site is specific. Our price generally includes mobilization, materials including paint, all labor regarding carport installation, and footings including concrete or base plates. Once a price is agreed upon and contracts are signed, we don’t expect to flood your office with a long list of change orders.
4. How long will the carports last?
USA Eagle expects our structures to last 25 – 30+ years with very little maintenance. With return on investment in 18-36 months* (in most cases), your carports will provide residual income for many years to come.
