This has also created a problem and customers have said that it doesn't reach the floor and isn't made to the correct length.

  • Regular Option Isn't Sturdy
  • Based on other customer reviews the regular option of the porch umbrella isn't as durable as the deluxe option and is so thin it can be easily ripped by cats, dogs and other pets.

  • Not Washable

  • Low-quality Magnets
  • The magnets used on the openings of the Porchbrella aren't strong enough to keep it closed. Many consumers have said this has caused a problem and they are forever closing them by hand where as the company claim they close automatically.
