Added much needed shade to our new patio. Well engineered and functional umbrella shade. One word of caution, it does need to be anchored to your patio or weighted to avoid tipping. We just screwed ours down to the redwood deck and it worked very well. It raises and lowers easily. Very nice product.
We received the umbrella around the first of August and began using it a week later. Loved it, absolutely loved it..until the cord that runs inside the pole to lift and lower the umbrella wore completely in two. That happened in less than three weeks of use, and it wasn't used every day. We had screwed it to the deck which worked wonderfully so now have to undo it all and pack it up to return it for refund. What a pain and the umbrella was so great it makes me sad that it didn't work out.
Great cantilever umbrella- quick and easy to assembly on your own. Waterproof but in a continuous hard rain will soak through and drop a little. I used 6 large pavers-4 on each bar and 2 across the too to anchor it down and have had no problem with it being blown over- I have left mine up since assembling it even in thunderstorms and it's held up well. I could stand for it to be a little larger but it's still a great value- would recommend it
Price was right. Endured a season and the winter without incident. All mechanisms still functioning and no fading noted. The ability to tilt is a nice feature. Far from waterproof, it can withstand some drizzle without soaking up the water.
Just purchased this umbrella since it looked so nice online! We were so happy to see the great quality and design of this umbrella! It is adjustable for any angle of shade and just looks great in our backyard! We'd recommend you get one too!
