The umbrella and the stand were damaged upon arrival. Of course, it was not apparent until we took the fifty pound stand out. The box was in horrible condition though The concrete was chipped and the wrought iron)ha,ha) was broken. The top of the umbrella was curved. We are patching the concrete rather than box it back up since it does weigh 50 pounds. It will be ugly sitting on my patio and I will tell everyone I bought it from overstock. Horrible!!!!!
The umbrella is cheap and flimsy. The stand blows over every time the umbrella is raised. Do not buy these items. hey are a terrible disappointment.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The umbrella is extremely flimsy. The stand is uneven and blows over with a very mild wind.....not at all what I expected
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly
Next Spring I will have a better take on how well the umbrella works. The stand is heavy and attractive, the umbrella opened easily and I like the color. It definitely rates favorably to umbrellas and stands I viewed at a local store, and for less money.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was described as cranberry, In reality it is really more of an orange-red. As I prefer that color, and had read a review that said as much, I was happy.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I got this to replace an umbrella broken in the Halloween snow storm in the Northeast. As a result I have not used it, only opened to check that it arrived in good shape and works. My inspection gave me a positive feeling about how it will work and look in the summer.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Other than the color description, the site description was completely accurate
The stand and the pole look black in the add but once delivered, the color was different (more of a pinkish brown). Regardless, the stand is heavy and the product appears to be made well. It looks good on our patio and other neighbors are interested because of the price and nice appearance. This was a good deal for the price! I spent several days seeking out the right product for the right price and I'm certain we purchased the right item.
