Patio Umbrella Buyers Guide

What Umbrella is Best for Your Space? 

If you want to enjoy the warm summer weather, but occasionally get out of the direct sunlight or hide from a surprise rain shower, an umbrella is the perfect option for you! In areas of your yard where there are no overhead roofs, gazebos or awnings, an umbrella can be used to provide shade precisely where and when you want it. Umbrellas add colour, emphasize your landscape and contribute to the overall aesthetic of your backyard.

Most outdoor umbrellas measure anywhere from 5 to 14 feet in diameter. Patio umbrellas allow you to spend more time outside, regardless of the weather. Umbrellas are popular for their movability, portability and flexibility.

Before you pick your perfect umbrella, familiarize yourself with your backyard and determine where you want your umbrella to provide shade. Informing yourself on the different styles of umbrellas and fabric options is also important.

MARKET UMBRELLAS

Market umbrellas have been a popular umbrella style for many years. They are octagonal in shape and have vented tops. Market umbrellas are commonly inserted into patio tables and are rich in colour.

CANTILEVER UMBRELLAS

Cantilever umbrellas do not get inserted into the hole in your patio table, but have a base and pole that are offset away from the area that is being shaded. This umbrella has multi-uses. We see these umbrellas beside tables without center holes, small tables, near lounge chairs by a pool or alongside a deep-seating set. Cantilever umbrellas can be adjusted and moved easily.

SUSPENSION UMBRELLAS

With a suspension umbrella, you’ll receive large coverage and trusted, long-term durability. The heavy-duty construction of this umbrella is perfect for Canadian weather.

 

Polyester vs. Non-Fading Fabric? 

The good news is that both fabrics are durable and long-lasting. Sunbrella fabric is a 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric made for all seasons, with a 5-year warranty. This warranty covers the loss of colour or strength from normal exposure including sunlight, mildew or rot. O’Bravia, is a high performance, 100% solution dyed polyester 4800 series fabric.

This durable, all-weather fabric offers a 4-year warranty covering loss of colour and strength from normal exposure including sunlight, mildew or rot. O’Bravia fabric is ideal for casual outdoor furniture and is an earth friendly option; it is 100% recyclable material!
