Shelters are a great commodity for those looking to optimize the space they have whether it is to enjoy the outdoors, hide tools, or protect various vehicles from that pesky force called nature, all while looking neat and keeping organized to avoid cluster and damage. American families today work hard to enjoy the big ticket purchases of their choice, and they would like to continue doing so in comfort, knowing that their assets are safe and out of site. Having a yard that looks pristine can be achieved at a reasonable cost, and having your brand new vehicles looking brand new is a priceless feeling for consumers across the nation. Shelters offer options for different situations, and as part of their large appeal amongst buyers, shelters can be used instead of the garage that, in a number of cases, already occupied.

Some ask, what in the world would I need a shelter for, are they effective? The truth is that a shelter of any kind can be used for an assortment of reasons and tasks. One problem that most people have found is the trouble of vehicles, an RV, motorcycles, bulky equipment or boats being protected against risk factors. Shelters are perfect for solving this problem, as they can stop the weather in its tracks, the harmful rays of the sun, and dings and scratches from appearing, while keeping the yard looking neat and tidy. Children on the block can play sports without concerned and cranky neighbors watching from the windows, storms can thunder down while proud owners have the luxury of watching in awe and ease, and not a complaint can be made with the sleek design of the shelter hiding anything that might clutter the yard. The days of worry and trips to the body shop can be forgotten and dismissed with the helping hand of a protected cover.

Shelters can be used for different occasions as well, they can provide any handyman a work station where the kids are away from hazardous tools and cleaners, and their convenience can be optimized with piece of mind while your tools are being protected as you work. There are also shelters for emergency situations, the emergency shelter can store rations, blankets, water, and any other supplies you may need in the instance of an emergency, and can be a wonderful meeting place for the family if ever the occurrence arrived. For all of the rugged people out there that cherish their time spent under the sky, there are shelters that can provide a little leverage if dealing with outdoorsy tasks. A horse run in shelter or a calf shelter can be extremely useful on a farm, and an ice fishing shelter can be useful for those in the great North. The bottom line is that a shelter of any kind is useful and effective for any house hold that needs a little bit of protection.

Why Purchase Shelters from MDM?

Shelters by MDMHighest Quality Shelter Fabrics - MDM Shelters' covers are made of a 10 oz industrial grade rip-stop poly that is ultra-violet ray treated on both sides to prevent sunlight from deteriorating the covers. These covers will last years in the sun. Rip-stop poly means if you were to get a tear in the cover, the rip will not continue. We also offer our shelters in three attractive colors, green, gray and tan to match your landscaping. All three colors have a white interior which makes for a bright inside. Only MDM Products LLC's fabric is flame-resistant and meets California fire code CPAI-84. Many of our customers run heat inside their garages to keep warm while working in their portable workshop.

Galvanized Steel Shelter Frames - MDM Shelters uses only high quality galvanized structural steel tubing that is designed not to rust. Most other manufacturers powder coat their steel, which is basically a cheap way to cover black raw pipe and make it appear galvanized. Powder coating, once chipped or scratched, may rust within 24 to 48 hours. Our frames are also pre-drilled and are assembled with carriage bolts so that there are no power tools required during assembly. Average installation time on the one car garage is 2 hours with two people the first time setting it up. We make two styles, house and round. Both styles are designed with heavy duty, galvanized steel frames to withstand snow and high winds.

Secure Cable Hook Shelter Anchors - We use a cable hook anchoring system. Each anchor is 3 feet long and the cable is made of stainless steel. This prevents rusting. It's driven into the earth with a 3 foot long drive rod that fits into the head of the anchor. Each cable earth anchor has a 1200 pound pull out ratio. Other companies use augers that are only 6 inches long and they are very difficult to screw into the ground and may pull out easily.

MDM Shelters' Standard Options Always Seek To Exceed Our Competition - Double zippers or triple zipper doors are standard front and back on all our buildings at no extra charge. Other companies only include one double zipper door and will charge you $60.00 extra for a door in the rear. We like our customers to have access from either end. This also allows cross ventilation. Door hold up kits front and back are also standard on basic one car garages. Doors can be easily rolled out of the way and fastened with bungee cords. Other companies will charge you $40.00 extra per door just to hold the door up. Colors are no extra charge because we want the shelter to match your landscaping or your house. Green, gray or tan are standard choices. Other companies will charge you 10% extra to change the material run. We think the colors should be your choice, not ours. Anchors are very important to us because we don't want your buildings to blow away. Once again this feature is standard in our kits. The cable hook anchors are designed to be used on asphalt or dirt. Other companies will charge $8.00 per cable hook anchor and $10.00 for the drive rod. Our 10 oz fabric cover is standard on all our buildings. Most companies use only 7oz or 8 oz and will only last 1 or 2 years. Other companies will charge 40% more of the overall price to upgrade to 12 ounce.
