Customer reviewsColor faded from red to pink in 2 months
Umbrella is sturdy and strong and I like it a great deal. But the problem is I am in sunny Florida. Partial afternoon sun on about the front 18 inches destroyed the color in a few months of Spring. Now it's faded pinkish-washed-out-light-red. Even where there is no direct sun has faded. It still functions. Looks terrible and uneven. Most of the thing is completely under a porch and never got any direct sun for a single second. Reflected sun rays clearly contributed. Considering that there is a 100 y/o huge oak tree that's 40 ft away casting major shade most of the day on the small exposed area, it's hard to understand what happened. Maybe that doesn't matter on other colors. It matters a lot on the red. I am not upset given the low price. Also, I have excellent gutters so not overpour from roof could have contributed. Nor has my roof been bleached or chemically cleaned as so do here. I did not expect an inexplicable shabby faded look so soon. I just wish the quality of the dye or uv-resistance might have been a bit more resilient and stable. A piece of red construction paper wouldn't have faded faster. And, I am NOT at the beach where salt air could contribute. Conclusion: Inferior fabric coloring, or the thing was meant for inside use in the first place for merchandising or at a coffee cafe, or something along those lines.
