A patio umbrella is as functional as it is attractive. Pair one with your patio dining set to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays, relentless sun, and rainy days. The two most basic forms of umbrella are tableside and freestanding. The freestanding umbrellas are generally taller stay upright by being attached to a heavy base. There are also table umbrellas which fit into a pre-made hole in the table's surface. Both kinds work equally well. From here, they are further categorized as being either manually operated or automatic. Manual umbrellas must be opened by hand, usually by a basic rope pulley mechanism. Once open, they normally secure with a peg and hole. An automatic umbrella opens with a crank or button, and there are also auto tilt umbrellas which operate the same way, but tilt further than straight up and down. Once open, these umbrellas can be adjusted to tilt in various directions so that the direction of the shade can be controlled as the sun crosses from east to west.
Forget pine, oak or natural wicker, for outdoor furniture, they won't stand up to the weather and the sun. Teak, eucalyptus or cedar will. Teak is the jewel in the crown of outdoor furniture woods. It is extremely durable. So durable, in fact, that it was the shipbuilding material of choice in the days of the clipper ships. Teak patio tables can outlive their owners-teak lasts up to one hundred years. It weathers from a warm orangey medium brown to a rich silvery gray.
