Which Portable Garage Is Best For Winter Weather?

portable garageIf you live somewhere where snow and harsh winters are a concern, then selecting the right portable garage is important. Not only will it impact how long your portable garage lasts, but it may just save you headaches in the future. Now, we've taken a closer look at which portable garages are best for surviving harsh winters. At the end of the day, it's all about stability.

Consider Round or Barn-style Portable Garages

Because portable garages are not engineered buildings, they can't be wind or snow load rated. This means that they're not guaranteed for a certain weight of snowfall or for a certain wind strength. However, there are some styles of portable garages that will be more likely to hold up under the elements than others.

If you expect heavy snow loads, consider round or barn-style portable garages. Both of these are shaped so that snow is more likely to slide off more easily from the roof. In addition, barn styles have more roof supports in the frame.

The Best For Handling Winter Conditions

With that said, the style that's the best for handling winter conditions is the square tube frame peak style model. Not only does this have extra support, but it also allows snow to slide off more easily.

Of course, there are other factors to keep in mind if you live in more-northern climes. Be sure to have more of a heavy duty material when you choose the fabric for your portable garage. Choosing 14.5 oz. industrial material or 21.5 oz. ultra-duty material can make a huge difference when it comes to the lifespan of your portable garage, or how your portable garage handles the elements.

If you're expecting an exceptionally large snowstorm, though, the best thing to do is actually disassemble your portable garage. That way, your garage won't collapse under the weight of heavy snowfall during the storm. If you can't disassemble your garage for whatever reason, be sure to instead brush off the snow throughout the storm.

Remember to check out all of our portable garages, and pick the one that best suits your needs for winter weather or beyond.
