Warranty FAQ:

Does the warranty cover mildew?
If your Sunbrella fabric has mildew or mold, it can be removed easily with helpful hints from the stain chart. Mildew grows on dirt, pollen and other organic matter, so simple routine cleanings will prevent mildew from forming.

What's the difference between Sunbrella awning and marine fabric and other Sunbrella fabrics?
Our awning and marine canvas is engineered for shade structures and features a very stiff, tight construction and a heavy finish. Our furniture fabrics are engineered for the softness, comfort and and flexibility desired in seating and other furniture applications.

What's the warranty period?
Performance improvements introduced November 1, 2008 allowed Glen Raven to increase the warranty period for Sunbrella fabrics:
