Handy Search Tips For Covers
1. Bigger is better! Your cover will fit better and perform better if it is slightly larger than the object being covered.
2. Allow a few inches of space between the ground and the bottom of the cover to promote adequate air flow.
Covers For Seating Furniture
1. If you can't find the correct size chair cover, consider putting two of them together and using a bench or loveseat cover to cover them both.
2. Are your chairs stackable? If so, maybe a stacking chair cover or a bar chair cover would work instead of an individual chair cover.
3. Since they are the same profile, covers for benches, gliders, loveseats and sofas are interchangeable, so be sure you search in all categories for furniture with multiple seating.
4. Can't find the right size chaise lounge cover? Try putting them together and using a double chaise lounge cover.
5. The ideal position for an adjustable back of a chaise lounge is about 45 degrees for proper water runoff. However, any angle will be better than laying flat.
6. Large sectionals are difficult to cover because of the unique shape. Try separating them slightly, then covering each section with a bench or glider, loveseat or sofa cover.
BBQ Grills Covers
1. If you're having a hard time finding a grill cover for your free standing BBQ grill with side shelves, you may be able to cover it iwith a rectangular cover if the side tables fold down.
2. Standard (free standing) grills and island grills have similar profiles, so look in each of these categories during your cover search.
Table and Chairs Covers
1. One way to prevent water from accumulating in the center of your table and chair set (the "bowl" effect) is to cover the table and the chairs individually.
2. In order to prevent water from standing in the middle of your table and chair set is to place an item such as a bucket, beach ball, flower pot, etc. in the middle of the table. This will create slopes or valleys for water runoff.
3. Round table and chair covers will protect round, octagon, hexagon and square table and chair sets.
4. Rectangular table and chair covers will protect rectangular and oval table and chair sets.
Firepit and Small Table and Ottoman Covers
1. Firepits, small tables and ottomans have similar profiles, so search in each of these categories to find just the right size cover.
2. Small items such as side tables and ottomans can often times be placed upside down on seating furniture (chair, chaise, sofa, etc.) and protected by the cover used for the seating furniture.
3. Kettle or smoker covers can be used to protect many types of small accessory patio items.
