Cantilever Umbrella Prices

A cantilever umbrella is an offset umbrella that typically has a stylish curved beam to hold up the umbrella canvas. It has its own stand and is movable, meaning it can be used as a deck or patio umbrella or anywhere in the yard that shade is needed. These umbrellas are often fairly heavy in order to be sturdy, and many need to be further anchored by stone blocks or other weights. These two factors mean that although the umbrellas can be set up anywhere, you are not likely to want to move them around every day. Still, the cantilever design allows for significant mobility of the umbrella canvas without needing to move the stand at all. Most have two or three different tilt angles, and can be rotated up to 360 degrees.

Pricing for cantilever umbrellas varies depending on the size of the umbrella, as well as the materials, features, and overall quality. On the cheaper end, you can find umbrellas for less than $100, but you will be sacrificing some level of quality. The materials in the least expensive umbrellas do not usually stand up to weather over the long term as well as higher-end models. This could result in the canvas color fading, or in water passing through the material when it rains. The mechanisms used for opening and closing the umbrella could deteriorate or break, making the umbrella virtually useless unless you can replace them. The price alone could make one of these cheap umbrellas worth purchasing, but be sure to know what you’re getting yourself into beforehand. User reviews are very helpful in this situation.

A mid-range price to pay for a decent patio cantilever umbrella is between $100 and $300. At this price you have a better chance of getting a quality umbrella that won’t fall apart and make you regret the purchase within a year. There is some variety available within this range; you can find 9′ or 10′ umbrellas, as well as different colors. Even though you are less likely to get a sub-par umbrella if you spend more money, it is still wise to do your research and ensure the brand you choose is reputable and the model is going to last.

At the high end of cantilever umbrellas are the extra-large umbrellas and the heavy-duty commercial models, some of which can be used in home settings as well. These bigger, tougher umbrellas can easily cost $500, $1000 or more. Most homeowners will not need such an expensive umbrella, unless you have a huge outdoor entertainment area. When spending this much on a patio umbrella, you should be absolutely sure you’re getting what you pay for by researching the brand, the model, and the company selling it.

As you can see, there are cantilever umbrellas available at any price point, making it easy to transform your sunny backyard into a cool and relaxing shaded area.
