Choosing The Perfect Grill Cover

By in

If you have recently purchased a grill and are looking for the perfect grill cover to protect it, look no further than Creative Covers. We manufacture tailor-made grill covers to the exact specifications of your product and in the material of your choice, giving you peace of mind that your grill is well-protected!

It is important for your grill to be covered up in between uses as exposure to the elements and corrosive lawn chemicals can result in damage and as a result, higher repair or replacement costs. If you need some tips on choosing the perfect grill cover, let us help you out with some suggestions in this article.

Avoid Felt- or Flannel-lined Grill Covers

When choosing a cover for your grill, felt- or flannel-lined covers are a bad option as they make good nesting material for animals such as mice and squirrels. If you are unlucky enough that these animals tear your cover to pieces, you will be back to square one. Instead, good material choices for grill covers include vinyl, polyester and nylon.

Look for Covers Without Venting Holes on Top

Chances are, you are going to be storing your grill in an outdoor area with full or at least partial exposure to the elements. A cover that comes with venting holes on top will allow water to get through, defeating the purpose of using one in the first place! Even if your cover material is weather resistant, letting water in deliberately only obliterates the purpose, which brings us to the next point.

Choose a Weather Resistant Material such as Polyester

It is important to choose a material that is breathable and water resistant for your cover, especially for equipment that will be stored outdoors. Drying in the fastest possible time, a water resistant or waterproof material such as polyester will prevent water from accumulating on your grill, which can lead to mold growth and/or corrosion over time.

Other factors to consider when choosing the perfect material for your grill cover include:

  • Form-fitting: You will want your cover to fit your grill as snugly as possible, leaving minimal gaps that will allow dirt and debris to get in.
  • Scratch resistant: Even if your grill is in a partially “covered” area outdoors, the possibility of items such as tree branches falling on it and leaving unsightly or damaging scratch marks remains. You will need to choose a material that can protect your grill from such incidents.
  • Functionality: Consider what other functions you would like your grill cover to serve, be it UV resistance, fade resistance or more.
