CANTILEVER RESIDENTIAL UMBRELLASCantilever umbrellas are a popular patio choice because of their flexibility. You’ll find that you won’t have to re-arrange furniture to remain in the shade. Cantilever umbrellas, instead, allow you to adjust the placement of the canopy, extending the large patio umbrella outward or even retracting it if necessary. Poggesi Cantilevers are operated in smooth fashion with sleek hand cranks. You should know that the Cantilever umbrella functions as follows: 360° rotation, tilt control, and height adjustment. You can keep your family and friends cool and protected with a few simple turns of a crank.
CENTER POST RESIDENTIAL UMBRELLASPoggesi Center Post umbrellas stand as another option for your patio, porch, or rooftop veranda. This type is traditional, featuring a center pole that supports the entire canopy. They’re perfect for the purpose of blocking the view of electrical wires stretched above your property, and overall, they’re ideal if you seek a classic style. The center post variety is also great for stationary poolside and lawn setups. If you’re adding the umbrella to a side deck or near a tree line, in which case most of the space is already shaded, the Center Post umbrellas can be just the decor you’re looking for. Feeling overwhelmed already? Don’t fret! We’ll have you feeling like an expert instead very soon.

Sizes to consider for your patio spaceCoverage – The width of your umbrella is perhaps the most important measurement to consider to determine the coverage needed. Knowing how much space you need to cover will ensure choose the right umbrella size for the best experience. This is typically measured in square footage, so a simple measuring tape from your local store will be enough to measure the total length and width you would like to cover. Total Height – Consider how much space you will need above the umbrella. Since your umbrella will be placed outdoors, height is rarely an issue. However, in some cases, you may need extra room above the umbrella when storing it away since it rises slightly when closed or when placing below trees. Height above furniture – You should also consider how much room you need above your furniture when the umbrella is closed. If you don’t select the right amount of space your umbrella, when closed may overlap taller tables or chairs. You may then, of course, present this essential information to a Poggesi Concierge, and we’ll help you select the best option for your outdoor space. We’re experts in patio design and shade.

Durability is one of the most important aspects of a large patio umbrella. While it certainly may be tempting to select a cheaper option for short-term fun and relaxation, high-quality Poggesi umbrellas ensure that coveted long-range experience. These structures are designed and built to last. Mother Nature won’t simply pass over your patio, leaving it as an untouched, blissful haven. Select an outdoor patio umbrella that you can rely on. Trust in fine fabric that repels rain and other forms of precipitation. For years, Poggesi has employed Sunbrella fabrics in order to present premier residential patio umbrellas.

Price RangesUnder $1,500 – If you have a budget under $1,500, it will be difficult to find a high-quality umbrella that will withstand tough weather conditions and last a long time. These are your common home umbrellas found at your local hardware stores. Typically umbrellas in this range are made with very thin aluminum, have a polyester fabric and thus suffer wear and tear faster, implying a very short lifespan. They also come in standard colors, sizes, and shapes, so customization is not an option. Higher Investment Budgets – Generally, a budget over $1,500 is much better when choosing a higher-end umbrella as you will have more options available to you for customization and size. Umbrellas in this price range will typically be a commercial-grade quality umbrella which means they are built to withstand tougher weather and last for many years. These long-lasting umbrellas are made with thicker industrial grade aluminum, acrylic fabric, and other fine quality materials. Characteristic of Poggesi umbrellas, customers have the option of customizing every single thing in the umbrella: the size, the shape, the color of the structure, base, fabric, binding, and stitching. We understand that your budget is more than likely a factor in this umbrella equation, but it’s important to consider the long-term. Instead of “wear and tear,” we like to think of it as “care, flair, and bear.” Care enough to purchase durable umbrellas that will add flair to your garden or terrace, and bear the inevitable natural elements.
