As we head into the 2019-2020 winter season, it’s important for homeowners across the United States to understand the toll that cold weather can have on cars, boats, lawn equipment, and outdoor gear. Leaving these belongings exposed to winter elements during the cold season can result in damaged property and other negative consequences, which is why you should consider protecting these valuables with a carport, barn, shed, or garage. Millennium Buildings has an array of options that can fit your needs – read on for what these structures can do to shelter your stuff from the cold.
How the Cold Can Damage Your Possessions
Cars and boats are both lifelong investments that should be taken care of properly. By leaving these vehicles unprotected during the winter, you expose them to numerous threats that harm their integrity and your wallet.
Driving in the snow can be tricky and dangerous, especially for southern dwellers who aren’t used to icy roads. Additionally, the cold can wreak havoc on the physical structure of your vehicle. To ensure that you can safely traverse in these conditions, it’s essential that your car is healthy and functioning properly. By shielding your car under a carport or garage provided by Millennium Buildings you are guarding it from the following cold-related risks:
- Dead Batteries
- Low Tire Pressure
- Thickened Fluids
- Failed Windshield Wipers
- Body Damage
These are some of the main consequences that come from allowing your car to sit defenseless throughout cold winters. Carports and garages help your car survive the winter with increased durability, less exterior and cosmetic damages, and less visits to the auto shop for repairs.
If you’re planning to stow away your boat for the winter, it’s necessary to understand how the cold weather can negatively affect your boat. These are all potential outcomes when you inadequately store your boat over the winter:
- Blocked Drains
- Stress Cracks
- Motor Failure
- Interior Damage
There are multiple steps that go into storing your boat for the winter. The first is to make sure you have a sizable carport or garage to keep your boat in. The second is to buy a durable, ventilated tarp that can cover your boat for an extended period of time. The last step is to occasionally check your boat’s hull and engine to make sure that there are no cracks or loose bolts and wires.
