Metal Pavillions - An Outdoor Entertainment Hub

Picture this: a beautiful summer evening, gathering with friends and family under the shade of a metal carport turned pavilion. With some comfortable seating, a few tables, and decorative lighting, your carport can become the ultimate outdoor entertainment hub. Whether you're hosting a barbecue, birthday party, or simply enjoying a leisurely afternoon, this space offers protection from the elements while enhancing the ambiance of your outdoor gatherings.


Metal carport structures are perfect for: 

  • Municipal parks and recreational centers 

  • Residential entertainment spaces 

  • Picnic areas 

  • Outdoor basketball or sports court covers 

  • Event centers

  • Wedding venues

  • Commercial outdoor meeting spaces 

  • Campground pavillions 

  • Covering children’s play areas or playground covers 



From intimate gatherings to lively celebrations, the shelter provided by your pavilion ensures that the festivities can carry on, rain or shine. 


A covered outdoor gathering space is essential, especially in Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas, where the extreme summer sun or unpredictable rain can disrupt outdoor activities. So whether you're toasting marshmallows on a summer evening or gathering on a crisp autumn day, your protected outdoor entertainment hub will be appreciated. 


Covered Dining Areas for Businesses or Homes 

In the south-central U.S., outdoor dining is possible for more than half the year. Why dine indoors when you can savor your meals surrounded by nature? 


Indaco Metals carports are one of the most efficient and economical ways to create an outdoor dining area where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Our clients have customized their metal carports with colors that complement their homes or commercial buildings to create a space that is cohesive with the environment where it is built. 


Carports as patio covers are common for: 

  • Restaurant patio covers 

  • Event venue patios 

  • Homes and vacation rentals 

  • Cafeteria outdoor dining spaces 

  • Office patios and dining spaces   


For businesses and restaurants, metal patio covers provide the most reliable outdoor patio protection to protect your tables, chairs, and other property from the elements throughout the seasons. 


Creating an outdoor dining space with a custom carport structure provides a refreshing change of scenery. Our carports are fully customizable and built with a solid steel frame and precoated steel sheet metal to ensure the long-lasting performance of your patio covering. If you choose a custom color and add potted plants and a dining set, your carport can provide a welcoming atmosphere at your home. 


Open Sided Covered Workshop or Hobby Space

Metal carport structures are perfect for a dedicated area for pursuing hobbies or tackling DIY projects. With a sturdy structure and ample space, a carport kit can create the ideal spot to set up a workshop or hobby area. 


A covered outdoor workspace creates a flexible, dedicated space for machinery, workbenches, and storage units to organize your tools and supplies. Our past clients have used steel carport structures for woodworking, crafting, or working on cars.


The robust construction and generous (and customizable) dimensions provide an ideal setting for establishing a workshop or hobby area tailored to your interests. 

Covered, Open-Air Outdoor Fitness Area

With the increase in CrossFit gyms, boot camps, and other group fitness activities, our metal structures (both metal buildings and carports) have been used by trainers, gym owners, and fitness fanatics to create dedicated spaces for working out. 


For many, using a metal carport as a designated fitness zone is a no-brainer. You can set up exercise equipment, weights, yoga mats, or a punching bag. With the open-air environment and natural light, exercising in a covered carport structure provides shade from the sun and protection from the elements, while outside feels energizing and invigorating. 

Metal Carports As A Creative Storage Solution 

Are you running out of storage space in your home or garage? Many people use metal carports as a creative storage solution. Consider adding shelves and hooks to keep outdoor gear and gardening supplies organized, or park your lawn equipment, ATVs, or other vehicles. 


Indaco Metals carports are an excellent solution for keeping your home or commercial tools and equipment organized and easily accessible. By maximizing the open space and utilizing smart storage solutions, you can declutter and free up valuable space for other purposes.


Open-sided carports are also useful for: 

  • Agricultural equipment storage

  • Hay and straw storage 

  • RV and trailer storage 

  • Car Storage
