Why An Outdoor Canopy?
While many canopies–such as pop-up canopies–are used as a temporary cover in the wind, rain, and snow, outdoor canopies are slightly different. They are usually made from sturdier fabric than the pop-up canopies. They are made to withstand wind, rain, ice, sleet, and snow for long periods.
Also, outdoor canopies are specifically made to protect from sun damage as well as damage from the elements. This is important if you have a car, truck, RV, motorcycle, or ATV you want to protect.
Research shows that car paint can fade an average of one shade per year if it is left out in the elements without protection.
A Temporary Garage
One of the best reasons to have an outdoor canopy is to make a temporary garage for your new baby.
Maybe you made a spur of the moment purchase, and you haven’t had time to clean out space in your garage. No problem. An outdoor canopy can cover your investment and protect it until you have done your cleanup.
We understand your time frame may be a few months–or a few years. Outdoor canopies with walls so that you can make sure your vehicle is protected. There is even space for you to fit in there with your car to make repairs, polish, shine, or just admire your newest acquisition.
There may be times that you need some extra storage for a short time. If you are building a deck, you may want to keep your wood out of the elements. No problem. We have outdoor canopies that can protect your equipment and your materials. We can also protect your tools and machinery.
Storage space is hard to come by in some homes, we know. When you bought your house, it might have been you and your partner. Now, there may be kids and pets in the mix, and your home isn’t as big as it once was.
You are working on remodeling your house, but it will be a little while before you can build a new garage or workspace. Outdoor canopies allow you to have a spot to transition between an old storage space and a new one.
Whatever space you are in, there is a canopy to handle the differing needs of your life.
