Buying Guide

The idea of hanging out in the patio is always highly recommended. After all, there’s nothing more soothing than taking in all that beautiful air outside. But during sunny and hot days, it can be intolerable staying there under the hot sun.

This is where the umbrella becomes crucial. A patio umbrella shields you from the hot sun, making sure you can use the patio anytime you want including during those hot summer months. But a patio umbrella doesn’t just stand there on its own.

You need a strong base that will hold it in place. This is where the idea of buying patio umbrella stands & bases comes in and as you can imagine, there are several models of bases to choose from out there.

The patio umbrella base will be holding a huge umbrella so it needs to be strong. Don’t forget that this is something that will be outdoors most of the time so it also has to be as weather-resistant as possible. In that case, you need to be very careful about how you choose the material.

  • Ripstop Nylon, Filled with Sand: This is essentially a round sandbag that fits around the umbrella base and can be velcroid on. It has an aperture that can be used to refill the bag, as needed. Super inexpensive, and a great way to keep your umbrella from blowing away at the beach. The sandbag type is versatile and easy to carry but can develop holes.
  • Resin/Stone Composite: More durable than stone, and not likely to rust or need painting. It doesn’t need to be filled with sand or water for weight. Some models adjust for two sizes of umbrella pole, and some have wheels that make it easy to move the stand from storage and back again. Resin/stone bases work very well and are quite durable. However, they are also very heavy.
  • Bolted Metal Stand: Has a very small footprint. Can be bolted to concrete or wood decking. The holder for the umbrella pole can be cantilevered to slightly different positions. The bolted metal bases are versatile and easy to mount, but the bolts can shear off. If placed in wood, they can pull out over time.
  • Four-Piece Fan Shaped Plastic: Each of the four pieces can be filled with sand or water to provide the weight. Not as likely to rip as a bag, and easier to manage than a permanently mounted metal stand. Eventually, however, the plastic will become brittle.
  • Concrete Stands: Very stable, but extremely heavy. Easier to move about if it has wheels. Can break if it’s dropped.

Each type has its own unique quirks. In some cases, you might need to add more weight to a standard base. In that situation, a rip-stop nylon sandbag would be easy to place on top of another weight.
