Will a tarp carport weather the storm?… Our steel ones will!
- Storms and precipitation are on the rise, especially in the Southeast US. Would a tarp carport be able to handle this kind of precipitation and storm cycle each year? Don’t risk it! A certified structure from elephant structures is guaranteed to withstand winds up to and over 130mph and to hold up a heavy weight of snow. Whether you’re preparing for a blizzard, a gale, or a hurricane, you can rely on our metal shelters to protect your belongings.
Plastic Tarps Just Won’t!
- If you’re just laying a plastic tarp over your car, RV or boat, be careful! That tarp will not protect your vehicle from even the lightest weight snowfalls. Ice and snow weighing down on the vehicle are likely to cause dents without proper protection. Plastic tarps are even worse for your car in the summer, when the heat will cause the plastic to stick to the hood and various other parts of the vehicle, sometimes permanently. When it’s hot outside, or when there’s a chance of ice, snow, or hail, a plastic tarp will not protect your car.
