I own this umbrella for about a month already. I needed something for my little patio to provide a protection from the rain. Nothing inexpensive like that exists so I decided to get something inexpensive and cover it with plastic sheet. I found the construction rather sturdy and colours pleasant and matching my patio. It does provide a shade but would let raindrops through. After I reinforced it with plastic it became rain proof. It also withstand some winds without a problem, but I have to mention that it is standing in the corner and has a good support from the surrounding walls. I also should add that I set it up once and left it. I do not crank it up and down at all. Some other reviewers said that crank mechanism is not very strong and breaks. But I don't have a need for folding it down. Will do it for the winter only.

This umbrella is great, I like the rectangle shape better than the circle much more. Don't forget to get an umbrella stand.

When I ordered the umbrella, I thought it was the standard round umbrella. This 8' umbrella is square, which I love. It covers the deck perfectly and enhances the look of my other furniture on the deck. It is a thinner see through fabric and I am very pleased. It shades the table perfectly. I would highly recommend. I am always pleased with the items that I purchase from the Home Depot, always a fine quality and the delivery time is excellent. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

This is a less expensive umbrella and stand still from the Hampton line of products and it is very durable and does an excellent job blocking the sun rays to allow a cool relaxing sitting area on your patio or deck.

This umbrellas is made of a material that is heavy enough to keep it from blowing away and light enough to be able to pick it up and place it on the table as needed. The neutral color is a perfect match for our older table and chairs set (the older umbrella had worn out). The material is also very easy to keep clean and to wash with a gentle soap to keep it dust free and bug free. I also like the fact that it is not so heavy that it creates a completely sun-blocking shield. Rather, it is more translucent giving a nice protection from the heat of the sun, but allowing light to shine through. We are enjoying it this Fall because it allows us to sit outdoors in the cooler weather, but enjoy the light of the Autumn sunshine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Angela Disappointed!
Bought first one, looked nice, felt sturdy, difficult to crank so crank broke fairly quickly. No more in stock, so waited until next season to buy another because we liked the size and style. Also difficult to crank and after a month of use, inside mechanism just stripped and fell into pieces. Contacted store who directed us to Hampton Bay Customer Service. What a joke! Dozens of phone calls, e-mails, receipts sent, pictures sent, etc. and still awaiting an answer and it is six months after the fact.
