With temperatures turning, it’s time to give your outdoor kitchen areas a sheathing until warm temperatures again grace your backyard. Whether you have a custom island grill, a built-in, kettle-style grill, or smoker, covering your outdoor essentials with weatherproof grill covers should be a top tier priority.
Misfitting covers can’t be guaranteed to protect your grill unless they are properly sized. A looser cover is bad because it provides space for pests, rodents, and vermin to take refuge for the winter while tighter ones pop up on one side when you pull the opposing side down.
Moreover, improperly fit grill covers expose your grill to harsh weather and elements that can cause damage. Picking a tailor made grill cover is the best way to ensure adequate protection not just for winter, but year round.
If unable to find the right size cover for your grill, custom covers offer tailor-made protection in accordance to the exact measurements of your grill. No matter the size or shape, you can find or design a cover that you can rest assured will secure your grill until you’re ready to put it to work once again.
The Fabric of Your Lifestyle
While felt, flannel, and padded covers that use cotton batting are readily available options, they also attract rats, birds, and other nesting pests. Grill covers in high-tensile, waterproof and durable material such as unlined vinyl, heavy-duty polyester, weather-proof nylon, and canvas can make for good material options.
Lightweight polyester is easy to handle as it is outfitted with straps and handles. It repels water and is pretty inexpensive. Whereas, oilcloth or treated cotton can be a little pricier, but as durable. These materials provide elegant protection as chair covers in addition to grill covers.
Synthetic fabrics provide solid protection with PVC-coated polyester or the more eco-friendly PVB backing version of polyester. Offering both water and UV-resistant, these materials prove to be economical yet easy to maintain options.
Custom Covers for Any Occasion
There might be no ready-made solutions for covering your backyard grill on the market. But there is a world of options to cater to your specific size, design, and shape that can be tailored just for you.
Custom covers for all varieties of grills not only protect but provide signature style as well. Once personalized with a logo, name, special quotes, or message, these custom covers can prove to be incredible gifting options. Let your Dad know he’s got the best barbeque on the block by gifting him a grill cover with his name and a special message printed on it. Surprise your loved ones with these holiday gifting ideas for the whole family.
Security for Grill Covers
Various tie-down options provide added support and security for your tailor-made grill covers. Foolproof weather protection is all about utilizing additional measures of security that will best protect your grill from anything mother nature may throw your way.
To consider tie-downs, think about how you would secure a bespoke cover on a custom fitted table cover. You need multiple options to choose from, to best suit your table. Do you need elastic bands? What about straps? These are the questions you should ask.
Grill covers with elastic bands at the bottom or equipped with multiple grommets seem to be the best fit. The elasticized bands cinch hold the cover in place even on windy days, while ones secured with tight straps and grommets ensure a snug fit and flawless appeal.
Be Good to Your Grill
Taking good care of your grill means keeping it clean and protected during the off season. While you still may use it during the winter months, make sure to clean it the right way to ensure it keeps its functionality while storing it away.
Keeping an eye on grill covers throughout the winter is crucial for grill maintenance and safety. Make sure there are no rips or tears on covers to save yourself from investing in a new grill the next season. Also, examine the nooks and crannies of your grill for any vermin that might take up refuge during winter.
