Wind, sun, rain — there's no end to nature's surprises. Make sure you get the most of your outdoor space by staying cool, dry, and shaded with our extensive selection of umbrellas, gazebos, pergolas, greenhouses, canopies, and more.
What's the difference? Market umbrellas come in an octagonal shape supported by crossed posts. The umbrella's canopy stems from the centre of a table or seating area, anchored by a base. Some models include an optional tilt mechanism.
Offset umbrellas have a pole and base that is attached to the side rather than the centre of the umbrella's canopy. These models typically feature larger canopies and more angling versatility.
Which should you choose? Wood is ideal if you want to paint or stain your pergola, and if you're looking for a more natural, 'organic' aesthetic for your space. Cedar is particularly receptive to stains and dyes, and it's also one of the more long-lasting woods.
Vinyl is one of the most versatile materials on the market today, particularly for outdoor usage. It is resistant to rot and climate damage, and it's a very cost-effective and long-lasting choice.
