Things to Consider

• If you are using the umbrella with a table, make sure the hole is large enough to accomodate the umbrella's pole diameter.

• Not all patio umbrellas are created equal! There are a variety of fabrics, frame materials, lift methods, tilt features, and canopy styles. Our Patio Umbrella Buying Guide provides useful information about all of your options.
