If you opt to buy covers made of inferior plastic or vinyl, your covers may last for two to three years at the most. These types of materials are easily damaged by extremes in temperature. They tend to expand and contract constantly and at such a high level, strain is caused on the stitching thread or heated seams used to put them together. In contrast, higher quality materials are often made to be waterproof, UV resistant, do not expand or contract very much, are lightweight, and some may even have soft linings on the underside to prevent any scratching of the furniture (this is an excellent feature). Examples of these high quality materials are the Tron-Wever fabric, Dupont Tyvek, any high-quality soft-lined vinyl, denier polyester, or the high-tech polypropylene. To see examples of these products, you can peruse a variety of shopping and manufacturers‘ websites. Take your time to see what‘s out there and you‘ll be glad you did!
Some manufacturers go over the top when making their products the best-of-the-best. When it comes to patio furniture covers, special features may come in the form of elastic hems, Velcro closures, zipper closures, leg ties as well as built-in storage pockets which can be used to protect the covers while in storage. One way to direct water away from outdoor furniture covers is through the use of piping along the seams. Other outdoor furniture covers have built-in air vents whose function is to reduce the level of moisture that can form underneath the covers. Air vents can also reduce the amount of air that gets trapped under the covers during windy days.
