I had a simple duty: to keep avoid having our stuff damaged by water. My family lives in rainy Bend, Oregon, where showers are more common than a smile. Which is why us doomed to live in the Northwest need all the help available in regards to keeping our valuables dry. And I have many things that need guarding: a motorcycle, a boat, and a lawn mower. To preserve them I bought custom canvas custom awnings for home Nevada to keep the weather out, so my cool toys can last longer.
These canvasses do a great job at keeping stuff in good shape, and they are cheaper than building an awning. For shame all that stuff can't fit below my patio area. They even feature snap buttons to guarantee long-term durability.
The downpours could go on but at least there is some affordable protection.
