Sunbrella® Patio Umbrella Replacement Canopy

A Sunbrella® replacement will always be your best choice when replacing your old faded umbrella shade canopy. American made patio umbrella canopies are sewn from Glen Raven Mills proprietary Sunbrella® solution dyed acrylic yarn. These fade resistant canopies are custom made in our Newbury Park, CA sewing facility.

Here’s what we need from you in order to custom fit a new Sunbrella® to your existing frame:

  1. Determine the radius measurement of your umbrella’s frame. The video below shows you how to take this measurement: strip the canopy from the frame. Collapse the frame and lay it flat on a table. Hook your tape measure to the outer end of rib and draw the tape along the length of that rib. Don’t stop at the other end of the rib, but continue up and over to the top dead center of your umbrella’s frame (typically there will be a threaded finial hole at this point). This is the radius or half of the true diameter of your umbrella.
  2. How many ribs? We have the popular 8 rib style and some 6 rib options too.
  3. Your old canopy will likely have a grommet stamped to the dead-center. Sometimes the original maker will just stitch around hole. In any case this opening will allow the umbrella’s decorative finial cap to screw to the frame to keep the canopy centered. We have 1/2″, 1″ and 1 1/2″ grommets. The size refers to the hole, not the width of the grommet ring itself.
  4. Select your Sunbrella® fabric. Our list prices are for any 5400 series fabric options (also known as furniture/upholstery grade). Sunbrella® uses an product name and an item number for each material. A great example of a list-price option would be Canvas Pacific Blue 5401, but not Pacific Blue 4601 (awning grade). Sunbrella’s® furniture/upholstery grade materials are soft and supple and will stretch more nicely across an opened umbrella frame than the more coarse awning and marine grades, while still offering Sunbrella’s® unbeatable 5 year minimum fade warranty.
