Protecting an RV from Weather Damage

Those who invest a great deal of money in their recreational vehicles usually look to protect their investment from the elements. The sun, rain, hail and wind can cause costly damage to a pop up camper, a fifth wheel trailer or a motor home.

The sun will oxide and fade the finish of the RV, as well as heat the interior to unbearable temperatures. Hail will leave pock marked indentations in the roof and siding and is nearly impossible to remove. Wind can produce falling limbs that can break windshields, windows and roofs. Considering the cost of an RV and the potential repair costs due to weather damage, a certain degree of protection is a priority for owners.

Some may seek to have their vehicle stored offsite at a storage facility or on the property of another. But monthly rental costs at a storage facility can quickly add up to several thousand dollars per year, provided one is available.

An enclosed garage is another option but may be cost prohibited to some. A garage requires a concrete foundation, a great deal of lumber, exterior side, roofing shingles and electrical wiring. A building large enough to store an RV 30 feet or longer will be a substantial construction project. In some areas, building restrictions may prohibit construction so large in residential neighborhoods.

Many RV owners are now considering metal car ports to provide storage for their campers and motorhomes. A carport is a prefabricated structure consisting of a metal frame and metal panels for roofing and siding.

Metal RV carports will consist of a roof to cover the RV and partial or full sides. The metal panels are prefinished at the factory. Because the finish is applied under factory conditions as opposed to onsite, it is a more durable coating. Predrilled holes for attaching the panels to the frame are performed at the factory and the hardware should come with the kit.

Those with minimal mechanical ability can often erect the carport without the use of professional building trade workers. If skilled tradesmen are used, the structure will be completed in less time than a garage. One can be constructed with or without a concrete foundation. A fully constructed metal RV building is often less than half of the construction cost of a similarly sized garage. So for those seeking to keep their RV out of the elements but wish to do economically, the metal building is often the method of choice.

Bigger Space For Music Room

If only I have a bigger space here at home, I may put up a music room, you see we have numbers of musical instrument and we just put it any corner in the house. The violin that I bought was left alone in one corner in our bedroom; the guitar of Faith was also in another corner of the bedroom. The piano is in the kitchen and oh the drums? Lol we actually don’t have drums maybe if my budget is enough for home renovation and I can put up an extension to get a bigger space. I would probably buy yamaha drums at guitarcenter.com, I am sure Mj will be delighted that we have a set of drums that she can practice playing at home.

My eldest daughter is a musician in fact she know how to play almost all of them. I am so proud seeing her playing the drums on their recital, she said she learned the beat on her own for a particular song. Her coach even congratulated her for a job well done.

See the picture of the drum set? If I have the same size, I really need a bigger space at home. I want to do the renovation right now but the savings is not enough, so we need to wait patiently. I know for sure my dream will come true.

Building A Garage Soon

Finally I was able to talk to someone who knows how to construct a garage. He will give me the whole details and the budget by tomorrow. We won’t be using bars for the braces, he suggested Gemilina materials for the braces, and he said that kind of wood could not be attacked easily by the termites. I can’t wait to see the design that he will be putting up. It has been so long already that I had been planning to put up a garage outside but I just don’t have the budget and time and since I will receive my 13th month pay early, I think I can afford to build a garage. I have so many garage designs I have in mind, but I am contemplating of these two:

This could be classy, but I think it won’t look good in our area

This is what keeps on taunting in my mind, but I am not sure if I can attain this. It looks very expensive to me at all. Maybe somewhat similar to this will do, I hope the one I would hire will not price me that much or else I will be doomed.
