Can You Leave Outdoor Umbrellas Outside All Year Round?

In an ideal world, the weather would always be pleasant, without scorching heat or freezing cold. Of course, that isn’t the reality for most areas. Although there are some locations that maintain mostly good weather year-round, strong winds, heavy rain or snow, and freezing temperatures can damage even the most durable patio umbrellas. Despite the fact that high-quality patio umbrellas are designed to withstand a variety of weather conditions, leaving them outside during these conditions isn’t advisable.

Patio Umbrella Fabrics

Canopies that are made of outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella, are moisture and mildew resistant. Therefore, rain will typically bead up and simply roll off. Additionally, the fabric is fade resistant to provide protection from the sun’s damaging rays. However, icy rain, snow, and high winds can do serious damage. After investing in a quality patio umbrella, you’ll want to take precautions to ensure that they’re safely stored. Bring your patio umbrellas in from the wet and cold and it will go a long way toward extending their lifetime, whether it’s beneath your deck, in a storage shed, garage or basement. Ideally, it is some place that is cool and dry to prevent the mildew that can form in warm or humid areas. Keeping the umbrellas off the ground can help to avoid damage from standing water, ice or snow and consider using a drop cloth or protective cover to provide further protection.
