Outdoor patio furniture covers must be waterproof, durable, and withstand harsh weather. Vinyl and Polyester are the two most common fabrics for outdoor patio furniture covers because of their unique design.
For chair, chaise, sofa and love seat covers, measure width, depth and height. Width is measured from the widest point between the right and left side (i.e.: from armrest to armrest or back width). Depth is measured from front to back at its deepest point (including armrest end – if it extends beyond the seat).
What is the best waterproof fabric? If waterproof is your top consideration, the best fabric to choose would be acrylic canvas. This is the waterproof fabric being used today by most high-end outdoor furniture manufacturers.
Cotton. Cotton (and any cotton/linen blend) fabric can be a great option for upholstery because it is soft and durable. It is commonly used for slipcovers because you can easily clean cotton with soap and water – these are perfect for everyday use if you have kids.
You will need about 3 to 7 yards of fabric to reupholster a chair. This all depends on the type of chair. Simple dining room chairs with no arms, back, and base cushion will need 3 yards of fabric. High wing back, formal chairs will need about 7 yards.
Measure the cushions from edge to edge and add 1″ for seam allowance. The length and width will give you the measurement for the seat of the cushion, you will need 2 of these. The length and the depth will give the measurements for 1 side panel, you will need 2 of these.
No problem. Just pull a few staples and start over. Reupholstering is a great way to bring tired-looking chairs-even tired-looking rooms-back to life. The materials are relatively inexpensive, the tools are simple and it`s a project almost anyone can tackle with success.
POLYESTER. Polyester is a tough, versatile fabric. Polyester works well outside because it is resistant to stretching, abrasion, mold/mildew, and rot – it`s also lightweight and flexible. Polyester can also come vinyl-backed which adds to its inherent durability.
Polyurethane Laminate is the fabric of all fabrics that are waterproof in its own right. PUL is a polyester fabric that has a plastic backing comprising a thin waterproof layer. Polyurethane Laminate is a completely waterproof fabric, as well as being breathable and flexible.
If you have four chairs, you will need 1.5 yards, six chairs takes 2.25 yards, eight chair seats take 3 yards, and so on. If your chair seats have cording at the bottom, allow 1 yard for two chairs – this will give enough extra fabric to make matching (straight grain) cording.
Of all the natural fibers, says Brookstein, the most stain resistant is wool because it contains lanolin, a natural oil that repels liquids.
It`s best to remove the seat from the chair to get the most accurate measurements. With a tape measure, measure the length of the seat from top to bottom from each bottom edge. Add another 3-4 inches to both sides to allow for a fold over finish and stapling underneath.
POLYESTER. Polyester is a tough, versatile fabric. Polyester works well outside because it is resistant to stretching, abrasion, mold/mildew, and rot – it`s also lightweight and flexible. Polyester can also come vinyl-backed which adds to its inherent durability.
Canvas, cotton duck, denim and twill blends are by far the most common choices for slipcovers. They are very durable and can be easily washed at home. There are many options available and these options can generally be found at your local fabric shop, not a specialty store.
Truly an investment that keeps on giving, wrought iron is one of the most durable and longest lasting types of outdoor furniture available. Though durable, it needs protection from rust, and its weight makes it difficult to move – though this is great for a windier environment.

Broken pullcord the pull cord on my cub cadet push mowersnaped and broken and we put it back in and know it wont wind back in
ANSWER : Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that) and I had to resecure that first, then wind it up before making the knot.. I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then.
