  1. What is the replacement canopy fabric made of?

    Our canopies are made of a woven synthetic polyester fabric. Our regular grade is an industry leading 350 denier fabric. We exclusively offer RipLock canopies. Our RipLock canopy has triple thread gridlines sewn into the fabric that stops rips from spreading. We offer RipLock canopies in RipLock 350 and RipLock 500. All of our replacement canopies are treated to be water resistant and UV resistant. We expect our canopy to last anywhere on average from one (1) to three (3) seasons, in a good, moderate climate. Please keep in mind that the canopy acts as a roof for a structure. It is essentially a cloth roof. Through wind, rain and sun, the canopy will deteriorate over time.

  2. How do I properly care for my canopy?

    Remove your canopy from the frame when expecting inclement weather (heavy rain, strong winds, snow, etc.) and store in a cool, dry place. Improve water drainage and prevent your canopy from sagging by adding extra grommet holes. If your canopy gets dirty, simply rinse it off with water and allow it to dry completely. You can also clean your canopy with mild soap and water and using a soft brush, clean the canopy. Please keep in mind that the canopy acts a roof for a structure and is essentially a cloth roof. Inclement weather conditions will cause the canopy to deteriorate over time. 

    *Helpful tip: Upon receiving your replacement canopy, spray with an outdoor fabric guard or protectant.

  3. Do you offer material samples or color swatches?

    Upon request, we can mail material samples of our regular grade, RipLock 350 and RipLock 500 canopies. We can also send color swatches as well. In addition, we can also mail out the color swatches of the material that the patio cushions are made of.

    [Back To Top]

  4. Are you the original manufacturer of my gazebo/swing/umbrella?
    We are not the original manufacturer of your gazebo. We are an independently owned online retailer that provides aftermarket replacement canopies for a wide variety of gazebos, swings and umbrellas. We are not affiliated with the original manufacturer or the retailer where the gazebo/swing/umbrella was purchased. "In general", our canopies are 20-30% more durable than the original that comes with the gazebos/swings/umbrellas.

    [Back To Top]

  5. Can I buy your products at a local store?
    Our replacement canopies and cushions are only available through our website. We do not resell our products through any chain outlet.


    [Back To Top]

  6. Can you make a custom canopy for my gazebo/swing/umbrella?
    We do not produce single custom canopies as it would not be cost-effective to our customers. Our replacement canopies are mass produced. 

    [Back To Top]

  7. Can I get replacement parts for my gazebo/swing/umbrella?
    Since we are not the original manufacturer of the gazebos/swings/umbrellas, we do not carry replacement hardware.

    [Back To Top]

  8. Can I purchase the fabric only for my patio set?

    Our swing and patio cushions include the fabric and cushion and cannot be sold separately. Shipping rates vary for the cushions, depending on the shipping zip code and the cushions' dimensional and physical weight. Estimated shipping rates can be calculated before checkout.


    [Back To Top]

  9. What is meant by the term "Denier"?

    Denier is a measurement that is used to identify the fiber thickness of individual threads in a fabric. It determines the weight and durability of that fabric.


    [Back To Top]

  10. If a canopy and mosquito netting set is ordered, do the hooks come with the mosquito netting set?

    The hooks are not included with the mosquito sets.


    [Back To Top]

  11. I do not need the canopy. Can I purchase the mosquito netting only?
    We do offer the netting only for purchase. Please make sure that you have the correct model number for your gazebo. The way in which the netting is assembled on a gazebo varies for each make and model. We can sell the netting separately, but since we are breaking up the canopy and netting set, the sale on the netting sold separately is FINAL and cannot be refunded, returned, or exchanged. In addition, the color of our fabric may not be an exact match to your canopy. For pricing and shipping information, or to place an order, please call us at toll free 877.479.4637 Monday through Friday 6:00am to 6:00pm, Saturday and Sunday 6:00am to 2:30pm.

    [Back To Top]

  12. Is the color of the replacement canopy the same as the original canopy that came with the gazebo?
    Since Garden Winds is not the original manufacturer of your gazebo and canopy, we do not offer the replacement canopy in the original color or fabric. Most replacement canopy models are available in a neutral Beige color. Select models are available in designer colors-please see the product description for additional color choices.


    [Back To Top]

  13. Is the Garden Winds replacement canopy machine washable?
    As our replacement canopy is manufactured differently than a piece of clothing, it is not recommended that you wash the canopy in the washing machine as it will destroy the fabric. If you need to clean your canopy, we suggest that you take a soft brush and mild soap and water and clean the areas that are dirty. Or you can purchase an outdoor fabric cleaner such as 303 Fabric Cleaner Concentrate.

    [Back To Top]

  14. There are different prices and options for the same gazebo replacement canopy that I'd like to order. What are the differences between them?

    On select models we typically offer three different grades of fabric for which you will notice three different prices. A REGULAR 350 grade canopy, a RIPLOCK 350 canopy and a RIPLOCK 500 Canopy.

    The regular 350 canopy is typically comparable or better than what came with your frame and considered to be our standard grade fabric.  The standard 350 canopy is made from a 350 denier weight fabric and DOES NOT include our RipLock Technology.

    The RipLock 350 canopy is what we would consider our “middle grade” canopy. This canopy is made of a 350 denier weight fabric and includes our industry leading RipLock Technology.

    The RipLock 500 canopy is to be considered our “ultra-grade canopy” and our strongest canopy yet. This canopy is made of a 500 denier weight fabric and includes our industry leading RipLock technology. It is also 50% heavier than our RipLock 350 canopy making it the most durable of all the fabrics we offer.  

    In addition to the different types of fabric, you may see an option for canopy with netting. That option will read “..Replacement Canopy and Net”.

  15. What is the California Proposition 65 cancer warning about?
    In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about toxic chemicals.  The initiative that passed became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians if a product they sell contains a chemical that is on the State’s published list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or reproductive harm.  While this warning may raise concerns to non-Californians, it is quite ubiquitous and normal to people who live California.  These warnings appear everywhere in Californian’s daily lives.  From restaurants, hotels, consumer products to chemicals products, if a product or environment contains even a trace amount of a chemical, the warning requirement is triggered.  Many businesses display the warning even if the trace amounts are not enough to trigger the warning requirement.  It is not unusual to see these warning signs displayed at the entrance of a hotel, or by the salad dressing in a salad bar. 

     

    Our replacement canopies are treated with a flame retardant that meets CPAI-84 standards.  The flame retardant contains one or more of these listed chemicals. The industry standard for tents and outdoor canopies requires that all canopies self-extinguish should it be exposed to flame.  

    Most tents or canopies sold to the American public contain this chemical.  In fact, it is very likely that your original canopy contained this chemical in order to comply with CPAI-84.

    In order to ensure the safety of our customers, and our compliance with CPAI-84 standards, the flame retardant must be used.  In the event of a fire near a gazebo or swing, our canopy product will not ignite or burn.  If ignited, the canopy will self-extinguish. 

    While we at Garden Winds care about the environment, we must also observe and comply with state of the art industry standards for safety and flame retardance.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

  16. What is Sunbrella fabric?

    Sunbrella fabric is used for all types of shade structures, commercial awnings and boats and is designed to have a long lifespan. Sunbrella is made out of 100% solution- dyed acrylic fiber. Acrylic fiber will maintain its strength when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays over a long period of time. Sunbrella canopies are fade and rip resistant, and easy to clean. Sunbrella is treated with a fluorocarbon finish for water repellency, making the canopies water resistant. Sunbrella canopies are also mold and mildew resistant, as well as stain resistant.

    [Back To Top]

  17. What is the difference between Sunbrella canopies and RipLock canopies you offer on your website?

    Sunbrella canopies are made out of acrylic fiber. RipLock canopies are made out of polyester fiber.

    [Back To Top]

  18. I no longer have the plastic caps to attach to the ends of the roof poles of my gazebo to protect it from poking through the canopy fabric. Are there any suggestions as to how to prevent these ends from ripping through the pockets of my replacement canopy?
    We suggest that you take heavy duty masking or duct tape and wrap it around the edges of the roof pole before installing the canopy. This should help it from causing any wear and tear on the replacement canopy.

  1. Where are the deck tiles made?
    Our deck tiles are manufactured in China and Vietnam.

    [Back To Top]

  2. What are the deck tiles made of?

    Our wooden deck tiles are made from Acacia Magnium (Hardwood) that is plantation grown in Vietnam. They have been certified to meet Forest Stewardship Council standard and controls.

    The Composite Deck Tiles are made of (UV resistant) wood-plastic composite (WPC), which is real wood fiber and thermoplastic (polypropylene).

    The Stone Deck Tiles are made with machine cut and hand polished natural stone.

    The Grass/Turf Deck Tiles are made from Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) fibers. We use three distinct fibers of different heights and colors to replicate the real look of grass.

    All deck tiles have an elevated (UV resistant) polypropylene co polymer (PPCO) plastic base.  



    [Back To Top]

  3. Where can the deck tiles be used?
    Our deck tiles can be used just about anywhere. Ideal for hard and semi-hard surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, wood, lawn, dirt, and gravel. Our deck tiles are also perfect to use under your gazebo, on top of an existing patio, pool side (non-slippery when wet), a dance floor at weddings, and many more places. 

    [Back To Top]

  4. How many deck tiles do I need to purchase?

    Each tile covers approximately one square foot and each box includes 10 tiles. We always recommend to order an additional box to keep on hand. 

    Quick Reference Guide

    10' x 10' gazebo - 100 tiles = 10 boxes

    10' x 12' gazebo - 120 tiles = 12 boxes

    12' x 12' gazebo - 144 tiles = 15 boxes 



    [Back To Top]

  5. Do you offer trim or edge pieces?
    No, at this time we do not offer trim or edge pieces. This means of the square or rectangular deck you build, two sides will have loop attachments sticking out, while the other two sides will have the peg attachments. The peg attachments do not protrude from the sides as they are more underneath the tile.  

    [Back To Top]

  6. Can the deck tiles be cut?
    The deck tiles can be cut. Please check with your local hardware store representative for advice on the correct tool to use. Always research and understand the risks involved, and follow safety precautions.  

    [Back To Top]

  7. Are the deck tiles interchangeable?
    No, the deck tiles are not interchangeable. Each type (ie., wood, composite, stone, and grass/turf) of deck tile has its own unique peg and loop inter-locking system and they do not line up with each other. However, if you want to mix and match the same "type" of deck tiles (ie., 12 slat and 6 slat wooden deck tiles or 6 slat and 4 slat composite deck tiles) these will attach together properly. 

    [Back To Top]

  8. What is the lifespan of each type of deck tile?
    There is not a specific lifespan as it will depend on your specific weather conditions and the up keep. 

    [Back To Top]

  9. Will water run through or collect on the deck tile?
    The deck tiles permit water to flow through the spacing in between the slats for quick drying.

    [Back To Top]

  10. What are the measurements of space between the slats of the deck tiles?

  13. What stops the deck tiles from moving?
    The deck tiles have tabs which lock securely to the adjacent tiles so they cannot move once installed. The tiles will not shift or create any movement under the feet.

    [Back To Top]

  14. Can the deck tiles be removed once installed?
    Yes, the deck tiles can be removed as quickly and easily as they were installed giving you the advantage of portability should you need to move them, reduce the size, or add on to them at a later time. 

    [Back To Top]

  15. Will I need to stain or treat the deck tiles?

    The wooden deck tiles have been pre-treated with decking oil however, it is suggested to reapply at least once every 12-18 months. There are two types of products to choose from: Film-Forming Finishes or Decking Oil.

    Film-Forming Finishes are synthetic and serve to create a layer of protection to block out elements and prevent the absorption of moisture and deteriorating UV rays. The advantage is a strong first line of defense however, the disadvantage is that finishes are only a protective layer and each coat will build on top of each other. If they fail or you do not reapply regularly the finish will start to flake off.

    Decking Oil is a natural oil, it absorbs into the wood and dries within the fibers. The advantages are that oils are easy to apply and it does not create a film. The disadvantage to using oil is that it needs to be applied to the wood more frequently, at least once a year.

    The composite and stone deck tiles may require cleaning with a broom/cloth or water hose.

    The grass/turf deck tiles can also be cleaned using a water hose.  



    [Back To Top]

  16. What is the warranty on the deck tiles?
    Warranties are issued on a case by case basis. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our Customer Service department toll free at 877-479-4637. 

    [Back To Top]

  17. Can I purchase a sample of the deck tiles?
    At this time we do not offer samples of the deck tiles. It is recommended to purchase one box prior to placing a bulk order. 

    [Back To Top]

  18. Why are the shipping costs of the deck tiles so expensive?

    Shipping costs can be expensive as one box of deck tiles weighs between 10-60 lbs. depending on the type of deck tile ordered (ie., wood, composite, stone, or grass/turf). Furthermore, depending on the number of boxes ordered we may ship these items via UPS or via pallet with a local trucking company. Please consider this before purchasing. 

    To calculate the shipping costs for the amount of deck tiles being purchased, please add the quantity to the shopping cart and enter the shipping zip code under the section "Estimate Your Shipping Charges" also located on the bottom of the shopping cart page. If your order is required to ship via pallet, one of our customer service representatives will contact you via telephone with a rate quote. 



    [Back To Top]

  19. Can the deck tiles be used in a driveway?
    You can use the deck tiles in a driveway as long as the surface is a hard or semi-hard surface such as concrete or gravel. However, the deck tiles have not been weight tested so we do not recommend parking a vehicle on top of them. 

    [Back To Top]

  20. Can the deck tiles be used to potty train my dog?
    Our deck tiles are used for decorative purposes only. Reference your local pet store for further information on the appropriate training items to be used.

    All Overnight, 2 Day, and 3 Day orders will be processed the same day if placed before 1:00pm Pacific Standard Time. If the expedited order is placed after 1:00pm Pacific Standard Time, the order will be processed the following business day. Due to UPS limitations: Overnight, 2 Day, and 3 Day orders placed on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays cannot be shipped from our distribution center until the next business day. UPS will only deliver Overnight, 2 Day, and 3 Day orders Monday through Friday. UPS does not deliver Overnight, 2 Day, and 3 Day orders on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays.



    [Back To Top]

  3. Why are shipping charges so high for some items?

    UPS calculates their ground and express shipping rates on dimensional weight and physical weight, whichever is greater. For example, a box of bulky items that physically weighs 10 pounds may have a dimensional weight of 70 pounds. Therefore, a lightweight item that occupies a lot of space may have a higher shipping charge.

  9. What is the warranty for Garden Winds Sunbrella Replacement Canopy?

  1. Do you offer a warranty?

    If, within 12 months of your purchase, you experience damage to your replacement canopy such as damage upon arrival or manufacturer's defects including stitching coming undone, Velcro straps tearing away from canopy fabric, grommet rings coming off, ripped netting, etc., we will send you a ONE TIME replacement. Just send us a photo of your gazebo and damage to your canopy, including manufacturer's model number.

    Damage to the replacement canopy DOES NOT cover damage caused by persons or animals and natural occurrences or weather conditions such as: blizzards, hurricanes, snowstorms, heavy winds, heavy rains, falling tree limbs, etc.

    Because the canopy is made from an outdoor fabric, it will experience deterioration if not cared for properly. Also, varying regions experience different climate conditions that may contribute to a shorter lifespan of the replacement canopy.

    If you are going to experience inclement weather (i.e. strong winds, snow, rain, etc.), we recommend that you remove the canopy from the frame of the gazebo and store in a cool, dry place until you are ready to enjoy it again. This will prevent the canopy from rips and tears as well as sagging due to rain and snow. Leaving the canopy on the gazebo during rain or snow may cause the gazebo and frame to collapse.

  2. What is your return policy?

    We only accept returns for canopies and cushions, and outdoor living items that are unused and are in good, resalable condition up to 30 days from date of receipt of the merchandise. Outbound and return shipping costs on non-defective items are the responsibility of the customer. When shipping your order back to Garden Winds using a carrier such as FedEx, UPS or the United States Postal Service, we recommend that you request a tracking number to enable you to verify that we have received your return. Please note that Garden Winds is not responsible for any returned items lost or damaged in transit. Upon receiving the return, we will inspect the replacement canopy to verify that the product was returned unused and in good condition. We will then proceed with processing a refund to the credit card on file for the merchandise amount. Returned items that are found to be damaged or used may not receive a full merchandise refund.

  3. I received my order and some of the product(s) is/are damaged and/or defective. What should I do?

  5. When will I get my refund for an item I returned?

    We process returns daily, but can take about three (3) to five (5) business days after we have received the return to process the refund. The merchandise goes through a standard inspection before we can issue a refund. Once it has been confirmed that the return has been received in good/favorable condition, we will issue the refund. We refund the merchandise amount (and tax, if applicable) to the original form of payment LESS all shipping charges. If the item(s) is returned damaged or used, we may only issue a partial refund.

    Orders placed with a credit card will receive a credit to the credit card used with the original purchase. Refunds cannot be returned to any other credit card. Customers that paid by check or money order will receive a refund check in the mail.

  6. How do I cancel my order?

    As we strive to process and ship orders quickly, there is a limited time frame in which you may cancel your order.

    You may cancel an order as long as your order has not been processed. To cancel an order, log on to My Account, go to Order History. If the "Cancel Order" button is visible, you may still cancel your order by clicking on the button. If the "Cancel Order" button is no longer visible, your shipment has been processed and shipped, and are unable to cancel it.

  7. I refused my package upon delivery. Will I be issued a full refund?
    If an item that is scheduled to be delivered is refused, the carrier will send the item back to our warehouse in Benicia, CA. If a package is refused, the cost of the return shipping will be deducted from the merchandise amount.

  8. Am I able to receive a price adjustment?

We will refund the price difference to your original form of payment. To receive a price adjustment, please email us at customerservice@gardenwinds.com or call us at 877-479-4637 within the 5 calendar day window.
