    Caring for Your Tarp Building in Winter
    Come wintertime, having the perfect outdoor storage building for your vehicle and snow removal equipment is invaluable. Whether you’re storing your automobile or a snow blower, you can ensure your belongings will stay safe in a tarp building.

  5. How to Maintain Tarp Buildings

    How to Maintain Tarp Buildings

    Tarp buildings provide reliable, portable, and versatile storage space. With easy-to-assemble yet durable materials, these structures offer convenient storage you can count on virtually anywhere. Not only that, but with proper care and minimal upkeep, you can easily re-purpose your tarp building for a number of uses. Find out how to get the most out of your fabric shed and maximize your investment for a long-lasting structure with these simple maintenance tips.

    Start with Proper Assembly

    tarp buildings First and foremost, proper assembly is crucial for ensuring a sturdy and safe storage structure. When erected over a flat, level surface away from other existing structures, you help guarantee stability while avoiding potential risks such as snow or accumulated debris falling from one structure onto the roof of your fabric building. Also, choose a spot with sufficient drainage to further prevent moisture accumulation in and around your tarp shed. As you assemble, ensure bolts are secure on your frame and your cover is taut to resist tearing due to heavy winds and inclement weather. See our manuals page for complete assembly instructions to all our tarp buildings.
    PRO TIP: Proper assembly requires anchoring your structure. Check out our accessories page and choose the best anchor based on ground material and structural needs in order to secure your structure and meet wind and snow load expectations.

    Care & Cleaning

    As mentioned earlier, keeping a tight cover greatly reduces the risk of tears. Always maintain a properly fitted cover and keep your roof clear of snow or excess debris. When removing snow from your shelter, use soft instruments such as a dull edged broom or mop. Avoid using hard-edged tools like rakes or shovels so you don’t accidentally puncture your cover. To clean your tarp building, simply use mild soap and water. Do not use bleach or harsh abrasive products. Remove snow from the base of your shed to avoid mold or mildew spots at the bottom of your cover or rust to your frame.
    PRO TIP: Avoid moisture or condensation inside your shelter by purchasing a vent kit. This ensures a cool and dry interior to keep your cover and valuables inside safe from damage.

    Replacement Covers

    tarp buildings While our tarp buildings consist of quality fabric meant to last, many seasons of use can wear down your shelter cover. Instead of buying an entirely new unit, simply replace your cover to extend the lifespan of your original tarp building. Or, invest in a replacement cover if you’re looking to equip your building with higher-quality weather protection. Our replacement cover kits come in multiple weights and strength options to maximize coverage capabilities. Contact us to find out if you’re eligible for a stronger replacement cover.
    PRO TIP: Don’t want to replace your entire cover due to a small rip just yet? No problem. A common fabric patch or vinyl patch kit can be used with adhesive spray for a quick fix.
