Protecting Boats From Snow with a Metal Building

protecting-boats-from-snow-with-a-metal-building

Though UV rays are a bigger threat to your boat than snow or freezing temperatures, the cold weather and frozen precipitation it brings can still cause significant damage. It is not simply a thermometer reading of 30 degrees or below, but a combination of moisture with low temperatures that can wreak havoc with a boat. Some people go to the expense of heated storage for their boats, but that is not always necessary. If you have properly winterized the motor and any other component that contains water to prevent freezing, you will not need heated storage. However, putting your boat under cover will provide protection it needs from snow. One of the issues with snow accumulating on boats is that it tends to go through cycles of melting and freezing. Repeated cycles throughout just one winter can weaken your boat's hull because water has a way of sneaking into even the smallest hairline cracks, and then expanding when it freezes. That, of course, results in larger cracks over time. Additionally, snow tends to pile up, even through melt/freeze cycles. Boats that are not protected can be damaged if the  weight of accumulated snow and ice becomes too heavy. When you need protection from the snow for your boat, Coast to Coast Carports has the ideal solution. We have it all from basic carport designs that will effectively keep the snow off your boat to full metal buildings that can be built with or without heat and electricity for more comprehensive protection. We specialize in carports and metal buildings and can even work with you to custom-design the boat shed of your dreams. Our structures are built from the highest quality materials and their 12 gauge products are backed by an exclusive 20 year guarantee. Protect your boat from snow with a quality metal building from Coast to Coast Carports.
