One of our projects this week is installing new carports for a client in Naples.

Fairways Condominium at Marco Shores called us after their carports were demolished by Hurricane Irma. Here are some of the damages and there are also several holes per carport. The photo on the right is one of the newly-installed carports.

We used 4-inch by 4-inch (4”x4”) and 2-inch by 10-inch (2”x10”) carrier beams. For the roof type, we used composite panels. To make it sturdier, we used tapcons that are a half-inch thick to anchor into the concrete beneath the asphalt. Compared to regular tapcons, these ones are really thick. Here are more before and after photos.
