What you provide:

  • Steel bar for reinforcement in footings – (see below)


This Awning is intended to be freestanding.  This estimate also includes general engineering guidelines that you should adhere to where appropriate. 
The engineering for this kit is based off of Amerimax engineering.


SlopeThe minimum slope requirement is 1/2 inch per foot.
Wind LoadThe wind load for this kit is 90 MPH. This kit is engineered for an exposure B area.  This refers to urban or suburban areas, wooded areas, or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstruction having the size of single-family dwellings or larger.
Snow LoadThe snow load will be as selected.  Snow loads are given in pounds per square foot and range from 10 to 60 PSF.   This measurement is also referred to as live load.  In most cases even light snow areas will begin at a 20lb load.  A 10lb load is for areas that receive no snow.  Contact you building department for your local required ratings.
Post SpacingThe max post spacing is indicated for each kit in the description.  The side overhang (from post to side fascia) cannot exceed 25% of the actual post spacing.
LengthLength will be as selected in 1 foot increments.
HeightThis is the distance from the ground to the bottom of the header. In other words this is the post height.
ProjectionThe distance from the gutter/fascia on one side to the gutter/fascia on the other side.
OverhangThere is no overhang with this kit.
PermitsIf a permit is being pulled, customers are responsible for getting these plans and the engineering approved by the local building department or appropriate organizations.  For accurate requirements for snow and wind loads, please contact your local building department or authority.  Please contact Absolute Carports if Engineering is needed. 


Footing AttachmentsAll freestanding structures require a poured footing.  These must be poured with the post being embedded into the concrete.  For this reason your quote will indicate a post size that is 2 feet longer than the awning height.  This extra 2 feet is intended to be used in the footing.  The post is 3 inches by 3 inches and constructed of 0.041 inch thick steel.  No brackets or bolts are needed for a footing attachment.  Customers must provide the concrete and steel bar for reinforcement for each footing.  Each quote will indicate a footer size.  This amount should be cubed for each footing.  Please see Footing Engineering for footing details on post depth and steel bar reinforcement.
