How to Choose a Replacement Cover for Your Portable Garage

A portable garage is designed to provide many years of protection for your vehicles, lawn care equipment, or other belongings. With strong frames and covers designed to stand up to rain, snow, wind, and the sun’s UV rays, a portable garage can be a relatively inexpensive long-term solution to your storage needs.

Even though portable garage covers are tough and durable, after years of wear and tear, a violent storm, or an accident, they can tear. If that happens, but the frame is still in good condition, you can simply purchase a replacement cover, and your storage shelter will be as good as new.

How to Choose the Right Material and Size

When shopping for a replacement cover, choose carefully. Many companies offer replacement covers, but they vary in terms of the materials used and the quality of manufacturing. Some may last years, while others may rip quickly.

Polyethylene is a good choice for a portable garage cover. It is designed to protect a shelter’s contents from water, which could cause major damage to vehicles, especially motorcycles, and equipment. Sealing out water also prevents the growth of mold, which could not only damage the garage and its contents but could also cause health problems in people.

In addition to its water resistance, polyethylene is commonly used to manufacture portable garage covers because it offers protection from the sun’s UV rays. Sun can cause the paint to fade and peel, seriously detracting from a vehicle’s appearance. Repainting a car can be expensive, so it’s better to do what you can to avoid sun damage.

Portable garage covers come in a wide range of sizes. If you aren’t completely sure of the size of your portable garage, take out a tape measure and check. That way you can order the right size replacement cover the first time and not start the process of attaching the cover only to discover that it doesn’t fit and have to send it back.

Replacement covers are designed to be easy to install. You should be able to complete the job with the help of another person, or maybe even by yourself if you have a small portable garage.
