The Offset umbrella is basically a patio umbrella that has a side support instead of a center pole. An offset umbrella is not only stylish but versatile in the sense that it can cover areas that can typically not be covered by a regular patio umbrella such as pools and hot tubs. They are also interesting in the sense that they are equipped with rotational tilt and adjustments mechanisms making them easy and safe to handle. The offset umbrellas like the other patio umbrellas are UV resistant, water repellant and wind resistant. They are sun proof and fade proof. PatioDepot offers a wide selection of offset umbrellas. Also shipped for free and with a lifetime warranty offset umbrellas are a great choice for your patio needs.
