Is My Cover Leaking?

At this time of year, especially as its been very mild this winter,  we are asked the same question over and over from some of our customers. Is my cover leaking?

On certain days of the year, you may step outside in the morning to check on your car only to discover that your vehicle is covered in lots of water droplets. How has this happened? You specifically bought a waterproof cover from us to prevent this from happening and to protect your pride and joy from the elements.

Your car is wet and it hasnt even been raining.  What’s happening underneath your cover is the same thing that happens to the grass when dew forms. When there’s moisture in the air, like during our typical British autumnal weather, the cooler temperatures we experience through the night cause that moisture to condense into liquid and that liquid then gathers in droplet form on the coolest surfaces. Those surfaces are often the inside of your house windows, on the grass, on spider’s webs and also your covered car. It’s a completely natural process and one that can’t be avoided.

As moist air passes through the breathable fabric it hits a cold car and condenses, forming water droplets.  This will then vent away during the day naturally as the temperature rises.  Its perfectly normal.  There are afew things you can do to reduce the amount of condensation you experience in the mornings.

a) Park the car in sunlight so it raises the temperature of the car quicker.
b) Park the car away from Plants, Trees, Bushes etc which attract moisture
c) Park the car on a hard surface such as concrete rather than grass or soil or gravel which tend to hold moisture and mean damp rises from the floor, up under the cover.

So no, your cover isnt leaking, its just a natural process that occurs at this time of year.

Toyota IQ Outdoor Car Cover - Now Available

Having already dealt with our local Toyota Dealership regarding covers for the amazing Toyota GT86 we thought it only right to offer something similar for the IQ.   Having access to the vehicle meant we could basically take a pattern from it for our bespoke car cover solution so it would fit like a glove.

Because the Toyota IQ is such a unique shape, as in Wide but Short, its difficult to find a good off the shelf cover that will fit well.  Hence us taking the time and effort to make a good one!

Having then offered these for sale online and getting lots of interest, we have now decided to mass produce these so they will very shortly be available to buy off the shelf, but in the custom pattern.


The material we are using called Tri-Tech is a lightweight, waterproof yet breathable solution that will compress quite small to fit easily in the back of the IQ.  The Two Tone colour means that the top section in Grey which faces the sun and gets most punishment from heat and UV will last well, and the Dark Sides wont show the dirt over time.

Mazda MX5 Car Cover

Congratulations!  If you own an MX5 then you will probably already have the grin factor and be pleased with yourself for purchasing one of the best, modern day 2 seater roadsters on the market today.  Coupled with Japanese reliability these cars in all their forms are becoming sort after as top down fun cars in the summer.

But the soft top versions ( which is the majority ) will suffer if left parked near trees with the dreaded green mold forming around the base of the hood, caused when water droplets fall onto the car that have previously ran over plant life or similar, they evaporate leaving the residue behind.  This can lead to an expensive repair or at worse a musty smell inside the car over time.

Stormforce Cover Shown Above (mk3)

Solution is fit a quality car cover when the car is parked up.  Not only will it protect the paint in the sun and frost but will also protect the hood, in summer and winter months.

This pattern is one of our most popular.  The pattern comes in 3 off the shelf patterns. One for the smaller Mk1 and another for the slightly bigger Mk2 and another for the later MK3 with the flared arches.  Alternatively you can do down the bespoke route and we can custom made one for you in your choice of colour with options like Tax Disc and or Numberplate Windows should you need them.

Contact us today on 01744 633985 where our car cover specialists can advise you on our choice of patterns and materials.  Whatever your budget we have something to suit.
