6 Advices To Look Into In Purchasing Patio Umbrellas

In completion of my outdoor patio furniture set, I decided to purchase a patio umbrella for my garden.

If you live in in the part of the country that is relatively high altitude area like I do, it is not always probable to eat out during the evenings for it can be quite chilly so lunchtime is the ideal time for scheduling a backyard BBQ cookout.

My guests and their families can get easily get burned because my patio area is fairly exposed so when the sun is out it directly affects them, this was the time that I knew that I should invest in a patio umbrella.

I always like to go into deep research when I am buying something regardless of what product it is, so I decided to share my discoveries with you. The list below are the relevant points I considered before purchasing the product.

The first thing to consider is the frame. Ultimately the choice just boils down to either wood or aluminium. Using the wood has its disadvantage which is it is heavy so it will be hard to move it, but if portability is not a factor for you then wood will do to fill the shoes.

The second thing to consider is the lifting mechanism of the patio umbrella. For you the lifting mechanism may be relavant depending on the size of the patio umbrella. The crank system is especially made for heavy umbrellas, this means there is a level on the umbrella pole that you wind and it goes up.

There is also a system using pulley, where you pull on the rope and the umbrella goes up and you can secure its position with a pin, this is an example of the less extravagant systems. Finally there exists a tried and tested collar that you have to push upwards until a click can be heard showing that it has been locked.

The third thing to consider is the tilt. There are two options in tilting your patio umbrella. a)In tilting the umbrella, an auto system uses the crank. b)Tilting the umbrella can be achieve by rotating one of the ribs.

Fourth on the list is the shade size. Following the general rule of thumb, the size of the umbrella should be 5 feet greater than the area of the table you wish to as to give you extra room required for the chairs to be included.

Fifth is the fabric used. The fabric is considered to be one of the biggest driver of the cost, I can assure you that the cheaper fabrics’ color will fade.

Last is an offset umbrellas that are flexible and maximum shade. The key points are that they don’t need umbrella stand that can generate extra cost so they have to be free standing and since the pole is to one side, you are free to position the umbrella where you can maximize the shade and the view isn’t interrupted.
