Bid a Proper Farewell to Your Snow Thrower

 

Snow Thrower Cover

For many homeowners across the country, the time to store away the snow thrower is at hand.  Even if you hope to never see that snow thrower again — at least until next winter — resist the urge to push it to the back of the garage or shed and bid it a hasty farewell.

To be sure that your snow thrower works just as well for you next winter as it did this winter, take a moment to prepare it for long months of hibernation by covering it with a snow thrower cover.  That one small step prevents months of dust and dirt from settling on your snow thrower and its components.  This, in turn, reduces the amount of time and effort it takes to maintain your snow thrower and ultimately extends its life.

An Exception to the Rule of Getting What You Pay For

“You get what you pay for” is a familiar phrase that usually rings true.  Paying less money for something can often mean that you’re getting a poor quality product that doesn’t last.  In most cases, paying more on the front end for a better quality product actually saves money over time because that product lasts longer and doesn’t need to be replaced as often.  Luckily, there are exceptions to every rule — including the rule that “you get what you pay for.”

When it comes to protecting your outdoor patio furniture from harsh weather and extending its life, patio furniture covers are the key.  Better quality covers do a better job, but, of course, they are often more expensive than the cheaper varieties.  Keep in mind that most patio furniture covers that are cheaper in price are also cheaper in quality.  But, not all inexpensive patio furniture covers follow this rule.

Veranda Protective Furniture Covers are one of those lovely exceptions to the rule that “you get what you pay for.”  Veranda covers are constructed from a PVC-free waterproof and weatherproof 3-layer material that protects outdoor patio furniture beautifully for many years.  These furniture covers are equipped with the same kinds of features that more expensive covers have, including secure tie straps, padded handles, and an attractive color scheme that coordinates with any home and its natural surroundings.  The best part is that Veranda covers are surprisingly affordable, costing only a fraction of what other high quality furniture covers cost.

In most cases, it’s safe to assume that the phrase “you get what you pay for” means exactly that.  But, occasional exceptions make for pleasant surprises.  In the case of outdoor patio furniture covers, Veranda Protective Covers are the pleasant surprise that will protect your patio furniture and your wallet all at once.

Storage Solutions For Winter Tools – Spring is on the Way!

Since Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day 2011, we can only hope that his prediction is right: Spring-like conditions are on the way! Since the majority of the country has had a much harder than normal winter, even the thought of warmer temperatures is promising! With nicer weather comes the question of where to store your winter tools. Protective covers are a great solution. Generator covers offer all-season, heavy-duty protection from many environmental factors, including sun and UV damage, bad weather, dirt, birds, and tree sap. You can keep your generator in great shape and ready for next winter, while keeping it handy just in case of emergencies. Snow thrower covers offer the same protection to a tool that you will hopefully store away all summer long! Snowmobile covers keep your snowmobile clean, dry, and safe while not in use.  Rear air vents reduce inside moisture and keep the cover down during winds. Most covers include bottom hems that are elasticized for a fast, custom fit.

If you are looking for a larger summer storage solution, you could put all three pieces of equipment in a portable garage. Portable garages are available in a variety of sizes and are designed to withstand years of wear and tear. You can use these shelters year round to store anything that you don’t have room for or that you need to protect. Simple solutions can make storing your winter tools a breeze this spring and summer!
