The fabric of the canopy is usually crafted from 100% solution dyed acrylic Sunbrella fabric. Sunbrella is able to withstand harsh conditions and has a three year warranty against fading. The canopy should also treated with a weather resistant finish to enhance water repellency preventing the patio umbrella shade from molding or mildewing.

Painted patio umbrellas are often designed with durable paint similar to that used on outdoor billboards to ensure that the hand- painted design won't fade when left in direct sunlight.
