Most spa covers are made of hard insulating foam enclosed in vinyl. They typically last anywhere from five to 10 years before you need to replace them, and the larger the spa, the larger the replacement cost for the spa cover. Covers that lock are a must for homes with children. Look for high quality covers with finished vents to drain excess moisture. You can also find super-insulated covers for extreme climates. Covers come in a variety of colors so you can match them to the same shade as your spa.
