Vehicle Shelter: 4 All-Weather Options for Owners

With the intense heat of summer and the ice and snow of winter, weather can really take a toll on your car. If you’re in the process of purchasing a home or renovating your property, you’ll need to consider all weather options for protecting your vehicle. While garages are common in some parts of the world, it isn’t always a guarantee that you will have a usable garage on your property. If you currently have no protection for your car, it’s time to plan. Read on for four ways you can protect your car throughout the year.

Put up a Tarp Garage

Tarp garages are an affordable and reliable way to give your car the protection it needs. Tarp garages are essentially fabric garages with all-steel frames. Though flimsy, these are incredibly easy to construct, and provide adequate shelter for your car. The tarp is a durable cover over the steel, creating a dependable and portable cover for your car. These tarp garages are waterproof and work well in the rainy season.

Install a Steel Garage

For a more permanent storage solution for your vehicle, try a steel garage. These types of garages are a durable and very permanent option for your backyard. These large spaces are guaranteed to protect your vehicles during any kind of weather.

Build a Carport

Carports are sometimes made partly of fabric and steel structures. Also, carports can stand freely or be attached to your home. While these carports aren’t enclosed, they provide excellent coverage in almost every type of weather. Carports are a great option for shade and are commonly used in apartment complexes, on patios, over decks, or in similar locations. Carports are also another alternative for storage. You can store your gardening tools and home maintenance equipment in your carport as well, depending on how large it is.

Renovate Your Garage

If you happen to have a garage but have been using it for storage, now is the time for a renovation. Redesign your garage by first hauling out any excess junk. Ensure your garage is ready to house your vehicles by redoing the floor and updating your garage door. A proper garage will be able to protect your cars in any type of weather.

Don’t leave the protection of your cars to chance during harsh weather conditions each season. Use these four ideas to help you keep your car safe during the year.
