All Coverking outdoor Custom Car Cover materials are breathable – this allows moisture which is trapped under the car to escape through the cover, preventing a “greenhouse” condition of condensation which may result in damage to your vehicle. If a car cover is waterproof, any condensation or moisture will stay trapped under the cover and cause bacteria to grow more rapidly and eventually lead to oxidation and rust. This can cost hundreds of dollars to repair and can be easily avoided by covering your car with a breathable material such as Coverking’s outdoor Car Covers. Beware of covers that claim to be waterproof – a waterproof car cover can damage your vehicle. A car cover should be water resistant, to keep the vehicle from getting wet from dew or moisture, but not waterproof (or rainproof). You should never allow any material to dry once it becomes wet while installed on the vehicle.
