30-Day Absolute Satisfaction Guarantee
1-Year Factory Warranty*

*Please note that the warranty only covers normal wear and tear or manufacturer defects. It is very important to remember when using ANY umbrella outside (especially larger ones) to use heavy duty stands with a sandbag. Umbrellas can catch wind easily which can cause your setup to be knocked over resulting in breaking the umbrella shaft that is not covered under warranty. Replacement shafts are NOT available for purchase.
