Importance of Shrink Wrapping
Boats and furniture left outside suffer from UV rays throughout the year (not just the summer). The UV rays breakdown the molecules leading to degradation and opening up the "pores" to allow water to penetrate and freeze.
Shrink wrap provides a barrier to protect your possessions against the harsh winter and sun.
A professional, skilled in shrink wrapping, will make sure the surface is covered completely. Be certain that all holes are properly taped and the wrapping properly seals off all entry points.
Animals seeking warmth, including squirrels, birds and raccoons will take refuge under the shrink wrap if not properly sealed.
There are a number of people that provide shrink wrapping services. Make sure you choose someone who does it (a) full time, (b) has insurance and (c) has many years of experience. Broken antenna's , burnt umbrellas, melted furniture, scorched gel coats are real damages you may face if you pick the wrong company. You should insist that workers performing work on your property carry their own insurance - accidents happen.
