Umbrella Refurbishing

The cooler months provide the perfect opportunity to get your shade umbrella in for a service and back to looking like new! The canvas is professionally cleaned, sanitised and waterproofed. The timberwork is restored. Parts and repairs are available as required. Refurbishment of the timber and canvas will have your umbrella looking great for summer.

Even though Made in the Shade umbrellas are designed to last, they are still prone to general wear and tear after many years of use.

We offer a repair and refurbishing service to past customers that is a fraction of the cost of buying a brand-new umbrella, and allows you to continue to use your Made in the Shade umbrella for years to come.

No matter where you are in Australia, we’ve made getting your umbrella back to us as easy as possible. Just call us on 03 9785 1236 and we’ll send you a return kit with everything you need. After the return kit is received, all that’s needed to do is to slip the umbrella into a sleeve that we’ve provided, and call the number to have a courier collect the package directly from you. We’ll take care of the rest.
