Have you taken a good look at your hot tub’s cover lately? Has it started to take on water, crack, dry rot or become discolored? If so, you may want to consider replacing it with a new hot tub cover. Hot tub covers are traditionally used for two things. Those two things are to keep the heat in and other things out. Thus, it is very important that the hot tub cover fits snugly. When purchasing a replacement hot tub cover, the best way to ensure that snug fit is to order a customized one. After all, it will be built with your hot tub’s precise dimensions and shape in mind.
In addition, custom hot tub covers can be made with materials designed to suit your hometown’s weather conditions. For example, if you live in a light climate zone, you may want to select a custom hot tub cover with an R-value of 14.5 and a 1.5 lb foam core. Covers with an R-value of 30+ and 2 lb foam cores, on the other hand, are often well suited for harsher climates. Either way, that attention to detail during the design process will help to ensure that your custom cover lasts for a very long time.
The other advantage to purchasing a custom hot tub cover is that you can select a color, skirt and safety strap style that appeals to your sense of aesthetics. To determine which size cover is needed, measure all four sides of the hot tub shell and the corner radius. Do not measure the old cover because it may have become misshapen over the years. If you still have questions after taking those initial measurements, you may want to consult with one of our custom hot tub cover experts too.
