Default Good Quality Cantilever Patio Umbrella!

Never had the $$$ to properly cover our outdoor patio, so have been using those square canopies for 12 years now, been through 2-3 at $200 - $300 each. While they work very well,there a pain in the ass when a storm comes through. Even though I've anchored each down very well, if it's a big storm is coming through the canopy must come down. Had rips and tears from afternoon thunderstorms and such as well.

Since our old one rusted away and it's starting to get hot outside I would like to look at getting one of those cantilever umbrellas with the big base you fill with water. They look like they would provide great shade while still being very easy to stow in a storm.

Looking for those of who who own them or have direct experience with them, because they ain't cheap! $300 - $500 for a decent quality one it looks like. Home depot has one for $299, but I don't know if it's a decent unit that will last me a few years.

Thanks for any help!

Quality, commercial cantilever umbrellas are close to 3k or more for a 10 x 10. Anything less will provide some shade but just aren't built to last. We picked up a couple from a place called the shade experts on a big sale. might check there.

We have two commercial level cantilever umbrellas. Definitely not cheap. Definitely not 500.00.

I just looked at the 11' cantilever model that Costco has for $600. All of the umbrella ribs are fiberglass. It seemed pretty stout, but at 600 bucks I can build a Pergola over our deck. I'll never have to worry about the wind again.

I made this last year. Base ain't tippin. Probably weighs 200lbs. Can move it anywhere along the pool. Bought the (rainbow coalition) umbrella at Walfart for $29. Easy to collapse, tilt, etc when the big wind comes. It has withstood 40mph gusts

I got a 14 foot or 13 don't remember cantilevered style umbrella from a friend for $20. I offered it to a couple people and they weren't interested. So I kept it my self. Went to a local patio furniture style store and saw the exact same umbrella for $1400.
My buddy confirmed that's what he paid so I think I got a pretty good deal. I love it. It rotates 360° and tilts each way. It on the heavy side so moving it is difficult.

I'll chime in as I was surprised how difficult it was to find a reasonably priced cantilever umbrella. After about 8mo of humming and hawing at prices, we waited until Frontgate had a sale.

We bought this model and it has been absolutely awesome.

Holy cow - Tuuci is $8000 for an umbrella!!?? For that kind of dough, install a pergola with canopy system - infinitycanopy.com - waaaaay cheaper in the long run.
