I FOUND A REPLACEMENT CANOPY FOR THE COSTCO TEMPORARY ONE CAR"GARAGE" CANOPY, TOP SIDES, BACK AND ZIPPERED FRONT PANELS AT TSY SERVICES @1 800 585-9969. I THINK THE CANOPY REPLACEMENT # IS S 05318 R. THE COMPANY IS LOCATED IN SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA.
I just replaced the roof; cost $125, including shipping. I would just buy a new
canopy at the store, and save the shipping costs. You will have to pay tax,
however, but you will gain the extra side and end-panels that will ultimately
wear out. The only other negative is having to discard the metal framework. See
my post below on how to contact the company that has the replacement parts.
I have found that these roofs last for three years before they need replacing. I
have scoured the internet to find different roofs, but finally ended up just
replaceing them with ones offered by the company that supplies Costco.
Read the previous posts in this thread. Mine are under Grumpoldcoot and Barry.
You can choose either the roof portion only or purchase the entire canopy
(including the metal frame). It's your choice. The current phone number is
listed in one of my posts, or at least in one of the other posts. Good luck.
Replacement part can be ordered from: Zhengte U.S.A., LLC, Chino, CA 91710.

That said, I recommend you buy another complete unit, use the structural co
mponents to strengthen your existing one (put the new poles half way betwee
n the existing by cutting the existing in half, putting in the new poles by
drilling and riveting the connectors and poles). That's what I did and th
en just covered with the new canvas. It makes for a much nicer and stronger
unit. Might even cover with some corrugated material so I can stop replaci
ng the canvas.
I have purchased parts by calling the provided company in the past. Initial
ly it was obvious the guy I dealt with couldn't have cared less about getti
ng me the parts I needed. After a little internet searching I tracked down
the contact information for the President of the company in China and sent
him an email. Service became exceptional after that.
One last thing, seems I cut some length off of the poles I cut in half to a
ccount for the extra length of the coupling. That way the canvas still fit.
Not sure, it's been awhile. Just keep that in mind if you decide to do tha
We have been using the Costco canopies for several years. They are made of a
cheaper plastic in China. We no longer replace the roofs with the original
Chinese plastic, but have merely left the old roof material in place and just
placed a piece of white tarp over the existing plastic roof material, ending up
with two layers: the old plastic material on the bottom, and the new white roof
tarp material on the top.
We tie down the white tarp using the heavier nylon cord (from Home Depot),
leaving the ends of the tarp "puckered" enough at the peak of the roof to let
the air travel between the white tarp and the underlying old tan roof material
(if the white tarp material is too tight, condensation may occur).
When you use the new white tarp, the canopy is cooler beneath because the sun is
reflected better, and when the roof needs replacing (which is at less frequent
intervals), you can just remove the white tarp and replace it by buying it
locally, bypassing the pain-in-the-neck outfit in Southern California that
Costco uses. As for the sides, you still have to go through the Chinese
importer, but I don't have the phone number. I remember that the last time I
required new side panels, I called Costco in Kirkland, Washington. Sorry that I
don't have the phone number at hand.
P.S. You should attach the "feet" of the steel framework to a wooden
"foundation" on the ground to prevent splaying of the canopy legs. I used
pressure-treated 2x6 lumber, attached with flat steel reinforcement pieces
shaped like the letter T and letter I. These were screwed into the wood,
resulting in a fairly solid framework, with cross-pieces at the end and in the
middle. I then added some building blocks to weigh down the wooden framework so
the wind wouldn't blow it away. The canopy has never budged, even after ten

I had the opposite problem with a 10 X 10 E-Z UP commercial grade pop-up
canopy. My top was fine, but the frame got wrecked in a storm. The parts
to repair the frame would have cost more than a whole new canopy and I
didn't want to spend almost $250 on a new canopy.
I took a shot on Craigslist and found someone selling a frame for $50. It
seems that they accidentally threw out the top when they were moving. When
I got there I found out that they were throwing in 4 side panels with
the frame. The panels alone cost almost $150 new.
$50 for a frame and 4 walls...Sweet!
