Yes! ALCO Furniture Covers are Waterproof
When buying custom furniture covers for your patio you want to be sure that it will keep your possessions safe, clean and dry. But did you know that when you sew, the holes the needle creates in the fabric can leave your cover susceptible to leaks. Big box stores don’t tell you that their covers can leak at these stitching points in heavy rain. So at the seams you get drip marks on your furniture. That is why ALCO offers waterproof stitching sealing which covers the stitching on the inside of the cover so that rain and moisture can’t get in and damage your furniture.
Look for True Waterproofing
Nearly every patio furniture cover on the market claims it is waterproof, but when put to the test, most people find that “waterproof” means it only stands up to a slight drizzle. When the rain really starts to fall, your furniture can get soaked. It is important that you pick a material that can withstand heavy rains.
Use Vinyl and Not Fabric Covers
The best waterproofing is found in vinyl covers which ALCO specializes in. Vinyl allows water droplets to bead up and slide down the furniture cover before it has time to soak through due to the slick surface. Polyester blends are also common, but their waterproofing treatment can wear off or ends up becoming brittle and then cracking. This allows water that sits on the cover to drip through or the cover stays wet after it rains. The resulting exposure could mean you spend even more on a new cover or on replacing or fixing damaged furniture. Alco offers only high grade vinyl that holds up to the elements!
