    Default Parking shade for my car

    Salam guys. I had made an proper parking shade at my house long time back on order for my car. It is basically green Net based on metal structure. Now the problem is that since thin ordinary green net is not waterproof so im facing issues because whenever i get my car cleaned the wild cats would come, sit and rest on the green shade and usually pee on the green net which drops like a tap on my car which is parked right under the shade. So someone suggested me to get the fiber shade made on order so i went to inspect the estimated cost and the fiber sheets are for 120 rs/square feet. Which is getting too expensive for me. Please someone suggest me a bit cheaper and total waterproof solution so that apart from cat pee my car can get protection from rains aswell. Thanks in advance.

    A waterproof shade called as "TARPAAL" in local language is available in market. get it fixed on the exiting frame you have.

    Is it totally waterproof?? bec my main motive is to prevent even a single drop of water and to prevent cat pee to fall on the car

    plastic sheet is water proof, but that is only for inside use. if anyone use outside, that will damage in 2-3months. so better to sue TERPAAL that is also waterproof.

    Tarpaal is like a thick piece of cloth. It wont be so easy to clean.

    I would suggest the green fiber glass or a steel sheet as mentioned above. They both are solid and strong and easy to clean.

    tarpaal doesn't last very long.. these days people are using fiberglass, it's a bit expensive but it lasts longer and looks better since it's more rigid and maintains it's shape.
    the problem with metallic sheets that they create a racket during rain or even when a cat jumps on it. tarpaal starts sagging after some time and rain water collects in it, eventually it tears apart. have a look at this link : (Fiberglass roofing sheets linning THERMOLIGHT(since 1985) - Lahore - Everything Else) .. PS: i've no relation to this company and i'm just giving you an idea of different designs. I'm in no way recommending this to anyone.

    Fiber glass one here in Karachi is 120/square feet and 150/square feet with labour fitting. Which gets a bit costy for even one sedan.

    Is that because of sound when the drop hits on to the shade??
