    Trying to figure out if these dome type roofs are the way to go for bulk salt storage. Any pros or cons would be great. Seems like I could do a tin roof for less and never have to worry about it ripping or tearing?

    Wood/metal roof is definitely the way to go if you can do it. I have owned two 12x20 gable style cover its. They seem great when you start, but they won't hold up to a heavy load of snow followed by rain. That's why I bought the second one. Some say the round style are better for shedding snow.

    money talks. a coverall deal is a fraction of the price. We love ours. Just get it big enough. I have had 3 now and it is all do to the fact that none will hold enough salt. Now mine fits 1200-1300 tons and it is plum full
