    4 Types of Car Shelters for Summer Vehicle Protection

    Many people believe that winter is the most dangerous season for their vehicles, and it is during this period that they ensure they stay under the protection of a car tarp tent or another shelter. As the weather begins to warm, we bring our vehicles out and are less determined to keep them under shelter. However, this is a dangerous belief since summer weather and conditions can also compromise your vehicle's exterior and interior.

    Throughout this article, we touch on why summer can be a damaging season for your vehicle and the different types of car shelters to protect them during the summer.

    The Importance of a Car Shelter for the Summer

    While there isn't ice, freezing weather, and salted roads during the summer, there are still damaging weather conditions. Overexposure to sunlight steadily causes the color inside and outside of your car to fade. Rain and hail cause rust and dents over the exterior of the car. If you live in a wet and humid area, these will set in on the car even faster.

    A car shelter is an essential addition to your summer protection to maintain the value of your vehicles. They can easily protect your car from rain, help create a balanced environment on the interior, and stop your car from getting dented during hail storms. Whether you decide to get one with or without walls is up to you and the amount of work you want to put in to maintain your car. For example, a car shelter without walls might still require you to dry the exterior of your car after a rainstorm if the rain slanted to come under the shelter.

    When you consider the car shelters below, think about the weather patterns you experience in your region, the space that you have, the aesthetic you would like to maintain. Also, think about the other uses a car shelter could have for you to maximize

Whether it’s a get together for the big game, or a holiday gathering, enjoying food and fun outdoors never goes out of style. Sometimes shade can be at a premium when it comes to those outdoor parties. A fabulous way to give your guests comfort while adding style to your backyard is by adding a gazebo.

    What are the Benefits of a Backyard Gazebo?

    A backyard gazebo is a freestanding or attached structure without walls. It is designed to protect people from the sun and other weather while they enjoy time in their backyards. However, a backyard gazebo can also protect you and your loved ones from other elements. When paired with mosquito netting, gazebos can also keep your family and guests safe from pests and other airborne bugs when you’re outdoors. A stylish gazebo can also serve as a great ornamental addition to your backyard and increase your property’s aesthetic. Use a gazebo to create a nice centerpiece to a backyard garden. Or let vines or other creeping plants climb the posts to create a stunning visual or add strings of lights to the eaves to light up your garden.

    A backyard gazebo can be used in so many ways. While you may think it’ll be used to cover a sitting or dining area, you’ll discover just how versatile they can be. Let’s look at some of the many ways a backyard gazebo could be used:

  6. 8 Tips for Using Your Shade Cover

    8 Tips for Using Your Shade Cover
    There are plenty of options for deck or patio shade, but shade sails offer a charmingly unique and practical solution. Not only do they provide quality sun protection, but these breathable and water-resistant solutions complement any outdoor space for gorgeous and functional outdoor décor. In order to get the most out of your shade cover, you need to use it properly! Check out these 8 tips for a long-lasting backyard shade solution.

    1. Pick a good spot.

    First, you need to pick an ideal area in your backyard for your shade cover. A shade sail should be placed over a spot that not only looks good but ensures you actually benefit from the shade. Include shade over your patio’s dining area, lawn furniture, or wherever the sun shines for up to 90% blockage of harmful UV rays. Further, pick a spot with anchor points within reach. Shade sails need to attach to your home, building, or other posts in order to be erected. Stay clear of electrical wires, utility lines, and tree branches.

    2. Slope your shade sail.

    While our shade sails feature knitted polyethylene that allows water to pass through, angling your shade cover can help maximize its water resistance. If you position your shade sail on a slope, large amounts of water are less likely to pool. Not to mention, leaves and other debris are less likely to accumulate on top with a slanted position.
