Cover does have a limited lifetime warranty on the frame and a 3 year warranty on the vinyl.

NOTE: The standard black vinyl cover has been upgraded to a true three-ply, black PVC backing which provides 100% mildew resistance. The end result is a firmer underside that results in less stretching, and less wind flapping. Colors provide a great custom look and use a thick woven white polyester thread on the bottom for strength, but the underside must be maintained per manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning to resist mildew. See the link below.The Canvas is similar to a convertible top. The topside is a cloth texture with vinyl on the underside for water penetration.They each have their advantages and disadvantages. The strongest is the standard black, but the strength makes it a little more difficult during assembly because it doesn't stretch easily. The deepest black and nicest look is the canvas but toughest to keep clean. Color options are not refundable.



Disclaimer: Colors may not show the same on your monitor as all monitors display color slightly differently. If exact color is needed please obtain a fabric swatch before ordering as not returns will be allowed due to the color not matching a particular computer monitor.
