Do you have patio umbrellas that only offer shade at certain times of the day? Get rid of that old pole-in-the-middle-of-the-table umbrella and replace it with an offset umbrella. Offset umbrellas are also very sturdy and some styles have vents that let wind and heat escape. These vents will not only give your patio umbrella stability but will also allow you to be cool and comfortable. Offset patio umbrellas are available in a variety of sizes and hues to suite all of your needs.
An offset umbrella can be used for a large variety of activities. They're perfect for shading patio furniture or the hot tub. They are also great in the corner of a swimming pool. An offset patio umbrella comes in several sizes which allows you to choose just the size you need for the area you want shaded. Most offset umbrellas have height adjustable poles and some are able to rotate 360 degrees.
Strong and durable
Some offset umbrella poles are made of a Scratch-resistant, oxidized aluminum. Wooden umbrellas are often made of woods such as teak. A teak pole is sturdy and beautiful at the same time. Teak is great because it has natural oils that protect it from weathering and insects. The fabrics used in offset umbrellas are made to last a long time and resist the elements.
A good sturdy base is used to support an offset umbrella. Most free-standing umbrella bases use cement paver stones to weigh them down. Please make sure you use at least 4 paver stones weighing a minimum of 50 lbs each to anchor your freestanding base. Offset umbrellas larger than 10' will require more weight to keep them anchored. Permanent offset umbrellas are available and are cemented into the ground. For places with strong winds, these are the best option. This is a common style for commercial patio umbrella uses.
Don't wait for your trees to grow to give you the shade you want. Offset umbrellas can be placed just about anywhere you want and will offer you complete shade all day long. Offset umbrellas are perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy their outdoor area in comfort.
