Some cover retailers offer multiple grades of material in their covers, from inferior to premium quality. We only supply quality outdoor covers and only use premium material.

Most other covers are made from PVC/Vinyl or recycled polyester.
PVC/Vinyl is heavy duty, waterproof and feels durable. It’s great in Europe, Canada and cold climates however in countries with strong UV such as Australia they simply don’t last, usual within 12- 18 months they crack, making them useless. Recycled polyester is even worse and will break down within 6 – 12 months. In comparison our covers will not crack even under the harsh Australian conditions.

Ready-made covers are mass-produced and therefore take a lot less time to make each cover. Custom-made covers are shipped express airfreight that is very expensive. In comparison the ready-made covers are shipped in a container by sea and take weeks to arrive.

Yes, many cover retailers offer 2, 3 or 5 years warranty however they have many conditions and waivers such as waterproofing and fading. Our covers come with 1 years warranty and it covers waterproofing and excess fading.

No, in our many years of making outdoor furniture covers this has never been an issue. Sometimes furniture is made using inferior materials such as poor quality timbers, fabrics, rope and wicker. We don’t know the durability of items you are covering, how they are made, what materials were used, if they are suitable for your environment or if the manufacturer designed it to be covered. Only use outdoor covers on outdoor furniture. Indoor furniture should be kept indoors.

No, it’s recommended to leave a couple of CM’s between the ground of the cover to assist in airflow. Don’t use protective outdoor furniture covers on indoor furniture. Only use outdoor covers on outdoor furniture. Indoor furniture should be kept indoors.

Yes, all our covers use waterproof solution dyed polyester. The water can even pool on the fabric and it will not seep through. Please note even through our seams are double turned and stitched if the water if left to pool on the stitching it will eventually seep through the fabric over time.

All our covers are made from a solution dyed 200gsm polyester. The covers have the same appearance of a good quality outdoor lounge cushion however feature a PU coating on the underside that makes them waterproof.

This depends on where you are located and environment for example a cover in outback Queensland full exposed will have a shorter longevity compared to  a cover that is partially under an awning in Tasmania. From our experience you can expect your cover to last 5 – 6 years with semi exposure or a minimum of 3 – 4 years fully exposed to the elements.

Ready-made covers are usually booked in with the courier and dispatched within 2 – 4 hours. Once your order has been collected by the courier it cannot be redirected. The cover will then be delivered and need to be returned to us, a return fee will then be applied to your refund. The refund will be processed once the order has been returned.

Short answer is No.

There is a couple of reasons why replacement covers cannot be redesigned or have changes made to the measurements.

1st. The technical department within the factory will need to redesign ( prepare for template for production )  the cover inccuring addtional delays and cost.

2nd If the mistake was made by the production team they will be liable for the cost of the replacing cover. Any changes made will be considered as a new brand cover and costs will be passed.

It is important that the measurements are carefully checked and double checked prior to placing the order.

No, any modifications or alterations will void the warranty.

4 weeks from time of order. Please allow an additional week for orders places in late January.

This will affect the waterproofing properties and void the warranty. You can use a garden hose to clean the cover or clean it using warm soapy water and a sponge or cloth. Avoid using a brittle brush or an abrasive cleaning pad.

Short Answer: In most cases no.

When we’ve photograhed covers we make beospoke frames to suit the covers. The covers we supply customers are design to be loose enough for one person to take them on and off easily.  In comparsion the frames to photoshoot the covers  are so big the covers only just fit them and it takes 2 people ( sometimes 3) to fit/ remove the cover.

Just like clothing brands use the best models when photoshooting their garments (with some editing)  we do the same for our covers.  We can supply you basic images of the covers taken by customers. Just ask

Custom made orders placed online are automaticlly processed and is a streamlined and quicker process with a faster turn around time.   If the order is done manually the process is longer and involves.  1st confirming  measurements / desired design , 2. Quoting, 3.  Issue offical invoice with custom cover particulars, 4. Have CAD drawings made, 5. email drawings for approval, 6. revise drawings. 7. Amend/ Revise and 8. Wait for approval and submit.

Because of the detailed nature of covers it is vital we keep measurements, photos and details  in writing.

Over the telephone we cannot see the items to be covered  which makes finding the best soution less likley.   If there are multiple items that need covering  or the cover is  complex there is a higher chance for human error over the telephone.
