Patio Covers: Frequently Asked Questions

Are your covers waterproof?
Yes! All of our covers are waterproof.
Our StormBlock™ Signature Tan, StormBlock™ Signature Black Ivory, and StormBlock™ Platinum covers are treated with StormBlock™ coating, making them 100% waterproof and stain resistant. Water and dirt roll right off and ultrasonically welded seams keep your furniture dry year-round
Our Classic Nutmeg covers have a waterproof inner layer and double-stitched seams for added moisture protection.
Our Select covers are made from machine-woven polyester with double-stitched seams that are designed to keep water out.

Why should you cover patio furniture?
When you cover your wood, metal, wicker or plastic patio furniture, you're protecting an investment. Although patio furniture sets may range in price, all patio furniture is kept outdoors and exposed to Mother Nature. It's important to protect your patio furniture from rain, mold, mildew, bird droppings, insects and other damaging outdoor elements. Covered patio furniture will last longer, saving you both time and money.

Do these covers have a warranty?
Yes! Our Classic Collection covers have a 1-year warranty, Select Collection covers have a 2-year warranty and our StormBlock™ Signature and Platinum Collection covers have a 7-year warranty. To claim your warranty, you will need to retain your original order receipt.

What is the difference between our Classic Collection, Select Collection, StormBlock™ Signature and StormBlock™ Platinum materials?
Our Classic Nutmeg Collection is made from a three-layer composite material using spun-bond polypropylene. These covers feature an internal layer of microporous waterproof film to block rain and snow, but also to release trapped water vapor, preventing mold and mildew growth.
Our Select Collection is made from waterproof, machine-woven 300 denier polyester.
Our StormBlock™ Signature Tan Collection and StormBlock™ Signature Black Ivory Collection are made from waterproof, machine-woven 600 denier polyester and treated with StormBlock™ coating.
Our StormBlock™ Platinum Collection is made from waterproof, machine-woven 1200 denier polyester and treated with StormBlock™ coating.
All of our materials are environmentally friendly (no vinyl or PVC and dioxin-free), waterproof and treated for UV resistance.

How do I cover my furniture?
First, clean your outdoor furniture. You'll get the best results from your covers if you're covering clean and dry patio furniture. Next, identify the front of your cover and slip the cover over your furniture – make sure the front of the cover facing the front of your furniture. Once the cover is on, pull it taut and all the way down. Then, secure your cover to your furniture using the buckles and straps, or tie down straps located under your cover.

Are patio covers machine washable?
Yes, our patio products are machine washable. Please use an industrial front load washer only. However, you cannot put your covers in the dryer, please lay flat or line dry.

How do I clean my patio furniture covers?
The simplest way to clean your covers is to spot-clean any dirt or spots on your cover with a soft cloth and diluted (watered down) mild detergent.

Are the patio collections mold and mildew resistant?
Trapped moisture causes mold and mildew growth, and our covers are designed to allow moisture to evaporate. Our Classic Collection materials are breathable, so moisture can evaporate out through the material itself, while our StormBlock™ Select and Signature Collections have a positive air flow venting system.

We get a lot of wind. How do these covers stay on my patio furniture?
Our furniture covers feature a strap and buckle system (for chairs, sofas, and chaises) and/or a tie-down system to secure them to your furniture. Making sure you get the best fit will also reduce the effect of wind on your covers, so be sure to measure your furniture carefully. If you live in a windy location, it's helpful to invest in our mini gust guards, clamps that attach to your covers to help hold them down.

Do the table covers have a hole for the umbrella?
Because our covers aren't custom made for each table, we are unable to put a hole in the cover for umbrellas. We do, however, carry separate umbrella covers at great prices. These covers are available in our Classic and StormBlock™ Collections. Before ordering, be sure to check how to measure patio umbrellas.

How do I measure for patio covers?
When measuring your patio furniture for covers, it's important to have near exact dimensions. While purchasing oversized patio covers is easier, these covers sometimes cannot block out mold, mildew, and moisture. Use our helpful guides and illustrations to properly measure the dimensions of outdoor furniture. Visit our How to Measure page for easy measuring instructions.
