We have assembled common questions our customers ask. We hope these questions and answers may help you, but these are not hard and fast rules for everyone. If you do not see an answer to your question or if you have more questions please feel free to contact us.


Q: I cover my vehicle daily. What is the best choice for me?

A: The listings below give you the best choice first, with ease of use in mind.

The best choices for the person who uses their cover everyday is the Weathershield HP, Weathershield HD or Ultratect materials. The Weathershield HP and Weathershield HD offer the best outdoor protection possible, while still allowing good breathability. This state of the art lightweight, windbreaker like material is very easy to use, especially for those who like to protect their baby as much as possible. You will have great UV protection, water repellency, dirt and dust protection. The Weathershield HD material is 40% thicker and offers better dent protection and better UV protection over the standard Weathershield HP. The Weathershield HP is machine washable at home providing the easiest cover to use on the market. (**eight color choices and two-tone colors available).

The Ultratect and Block It 380 are the best value of the four materials and are lightweight for ease of use. This material offers good basic protection indoors and out. The interior of the cover will not harm the vehicle’s finish, while providing good outdoor protection. These covers should not be considered for dent protection, as they are fairly thin. This cover is good choice for those on a budget.

The Noah material will protect your vehicle better than the Block It 380 and offers you a fairly thick fabric that is lightweight with a soft interior. The Noah will pamper the finish of your vehicle, while providing a good barrier for dent protection. It also will provide very good UV protection, dust, dirt, and water repellency for use outdoors and in. Good breathability.


Q: I mainly store my vehicle in a garage with a car cover, but I would like to be able to use the cover outdoors from time to time.

A: A few good choices in this situation would be the Noah, the Evolution, and the Block It 380 materials. The listings below give you the best choice first.

The Noah material offers you a fairly thick fabric that is lightweight with a soft interior. The Noah will pamper the finish of your vehicle, while providing a good barrier for dent protection. It also will provide very good UV protection, dust, dirt, and water repellency for use outdoors and in. Good breathability.

The Evolution material offers the best dent protection out of the three materials. The addition of a polypropylene layer to the exterior of this material gives it a firmer exterior, which helps to resist dents, small hail and the foot traffic in your garage. The interior of the cover is soft. The cover offers good dirt, dust, UV protection and water repellency. Good breathability and your choice of three colors (blue, gray, tan).

The Block It 380 is the best value of the three materials and is lightweight for ease of use. This material offers good basic protection indoors and out. The interior of the cover is fairly soft, while providing fairly good outdoor protection. This cover should not be considered for dent protection, as it is fairly thin.

Q: What is the best cover for indoor use?

A: Covercraft offers the Form-Fit line of custom covers for many vehicles, mainly high end sports cars that need a material that will pamper the vehicle's finish. Designed for cars that are not daily drivers, Covercraft's new Form-Fit covers provide a body-hugging fit AND a super soft inside to pamper fine paint finishes. The outer shell of woven polyester has Lycra/Spandex(r) added to the yarns to provide STRETCH and memory - the stretch provides the body-hugging fit and the memory assures the cover will retain its shape over an extended period of time (4-year warranty). These covers include a matching storage bag as well (covers are available in six color choices). Good breathability.

Covercraft's Tan Flannel material has been on the market as long as we can remember. This material is as soft as that flannel shirt in your closet and will pamper your vehicle's finish with a soft, cotton like feel. The fabric is fairly thick and will provide good dent protection, as well as, good dust protection with an easy to use material. Good breathability.

The Dustop material is soft and strong. This material, like the indoor covers already noted offers great dirt, dust, and dent protection, while pampering your vehicle's finish. Dustop is the same material designed by Kimberly-Clark for some of their softest baby diaper applications, and if it's soft enough for a baby's skin you know it's soft against the vehicle finish. Great breathability and a four year warranty.


Q: I have a convertible and it is covered exclusively indoors. What are good choices for my vehicle?

A: The Dustop material is the best choice for those who cover their convertible vehicle indoors. The Dustop is dust/dirt resistant, very breathable material that will not leave unsightly lint on the canvas top. The Dustop provides a good barrier for dent protection, while pampering your finish with a very soft interior.


Q: I have a convertible and it is covered outdoors.

A: Any of the outdoor covers will work well for your needs. Here are a few good choices.

The best choices for uses outdoors are the Weathershield HP, Weathershield HD and Ultratect materials.

A: There are many choices for this type of use. We will give you the best three.

Hands down, the Weathershield HD is the best cover for you. The Weathershield HD offers the best possible protection, while still providing good breathability. Breathability is very important in this type of situation because your vehicle will most likely see some sort of precipitation that will need to dry on its own. Breathable fabrics allow moisture to evaporate before the moisture begins to create a mold and mildew science project on your vehicle's finish.

The Noah material is another good choice. The Noah material offers you a fairly thick fabric that is lightweight with a soft interior. The Noah will pamper the finish of your vehicle, while providing a good barrier for dent protection.

Q: I have a sports car or a vehicle with a small amount of storage space, which cover will not take up too much storage space?

A: p>The best choices for the person who has a limited amount of storage space are the Weathershield HP, Weathershield HD and Ultratect materials. The Weathershield HP and Weathershield HD offer the best outdoor protection possible, while still allowing good breathability. This state of the art lightweight, windbreaker like material is very easy to use, especially for those who like to protect their baby as much as possible.

Other good fabric choices for limited storage space, with a budget in mind, would be the Block It 380 and the Multibond Block It 200 materials. The Block It 380 and Multibond Block It 200 are the best value of the three materials and is lightweight for ease of use. These materials offer good basic protection indoors and out. The interior of these fabrics is paint friendly, while providing fairly good outdoor protection. These covers should not be considered for dent protection, as they are fairly thin.


Q: I am most interested in a cover that will protect my vehicle from dents, dings, small hail, animals and falling tree debris.

A: The Evolution material offers the best dent protection in the Covercraft family of covers. The addition of a polypropylene layer to the exterior of this material gives it a firmer exterior, which helps to resist dents, small hail and the foot traffic in your garage. The interior of the cover is soft. The cover offers good dirt, dust, UV protection and water repellency. Good breathability and your choice of three colors (blue, gray, tan).

The Noah fabric would also be a good choice for dent protection. It offers good dent protection, as well as, better water repellency, and a softer inner layer over the Evolution. The Noah fabric is a great choice for those who want the best bang for their buck.
