How to Choose the Best Waterproof Cover for Your Outdoor Furniture

For homeowners who've invested in patio furniture to create an inviting oasis, keeping the furniture protected from the elements ensures a longer lifespan for each piece. Whether you plan to relax with family, light up the grill for tasty eats, or socialize with friends, you'll want the furniture to look and function at its best.

Potential Problems with Uncovered Patio Furniture

There are more than a few consequences when patio furniture is left to fend for itself. A few of the negative issues patio furniture can expect without the benefit of waterproof covers include:

  • Eliminates excess moisture buildup.
  • Eliminates mold buildup.
  • Eliminates mildew buildup.
  • Prevents faded cushions.
  • Helps prevent wooden furniture from becoming warped.
  • Helps prevent metal furniture from rusting.
  • Protection from the elements (sun, wind, rain, and snow).
  • Protect furniture and grills from bird droppings.
  • Protects grills from corrosion.

Choosing Waterproof Covers

When you are searching for a waterproof outdoor couch cover or waterproof BBQ grill covers, one of the first steps is to check that the cover material is labeled as being waterproof. Once you've identified the type of cover material, check that the cover has an inner coating to support waterproofing and an outer coating to protect against UV rays. All of our covers come with stitching that is protected with heat-sealed tape, adding another level of protection.

Next, check the type of material that is used for the cover. We use a heavy-duty rip-stop fabric that not only protects against the elements but also is not prone to ripping. During heavy rain, for example, water can easily build up and pool, putting excessive strain on the fabric. This can happen if the cover does not properly fit. 

Other considerations are how the cover stays secured and in place. This is especially important during harsh weather when the wind may affect the stability of the cover. Measure the couch from all angles, including width, depth, and height. Correct measurements are important to cover the furniture properly for total protection.

Two features you'll want to be included with the waterproof outdoor cover are straps, or other types of security measures, which attach to the legs of the couch, chair, table, grill, or any other piece of furniture, to ensure the cover always stays in place. Our covers use a drawstring for custom tightness and have adjustable leg straps. 


Be sure the outdoor cover comes with a warranty, as it is an investment to keep your furniture protected for an extended time.
