Canopies, covers, the list goes awn and awn. If you're unsure of what canopy you need to store your favorite things, we've got you covered! To help you narrow down your search and find that perfect shelter, we've amassed a handful of quick tips that'll send you on your way to a quick and pleasant shopping experience.
1. The first thing to do is ask yourself, "What am I storing?" There are storage canopies here for everything from firewood to farm equipment and your own motor vehicles. Even equine and livestock shelters are available at an affordable price. Use your imagination!
3. Measure out the area in which you plan to place your canopy. You don't want to get something too big to fit or too small to hold your items. When you know the size you need, browse by Canopy Dimensions.
4. Be certain of a canopy cover's durability. Different canopies are made of different materials and you want to find something that's tough enough to withstand the elements. Look for UV-treatment inside and out, key words like "fade blocking" and "anti-aging," and look for canopies that incorporate anti-fungal agents.
5. When it comes to waterproofing, anything under 100% just doesn't cut it. Hot air-fused seams offer 100% waterproof protection that you can depend on.
6. A quality cover is nothing without a sturdy frame for support. Steel is super-durable and aluminum is super-lightweight, and wither should be powder coated to prevent chipping, peeling, rust, and corrosion.
7. Even the toughest cover and the most rigid frame can blow away in a high wind. Read up on a canopy's anchors and foot plates. Does it utilize bolt hardware at every connection for extra stability? Quick and easy assembly is wonderful, but don't sacrifice dependability for convenience.
8. Just like cereal, shoes, and laundry detergent, there are brands of canopy that many swear by. If you know of a quality company then browse according to brand. You can also narrow your results even further by selecting customer review or price range in the left-hand navigation bar.
9. Know if your area requires building permits before you buy a canopy. Always check your local ordinance.
