Canvas Care

SureShade sunshade systems use Sunbrella® fabrics for canvas and we recommend following Sunbrella’s basic canvas care and cleaning instructions to prolong the life of the canvas.

 

Basic canvas care includes:

  • General, light cleaning with a hose on a monthly basis with clear water to remove debris
  • A thorough cleaning every 2-3 years, which may include fabric guard and/or mildew treatments
  • Conduct an annual inspection of your canvas to ensure that all threading is intact
  • A pull test on the thread will confirm that threading has not become dry rotted from the elements.

Additional Important Care Guidance:

  • SureShade does not recommend removing canvas from the SureShade roller system as it may be difficult to properly re-install or it could damage the rollers.
  • Under no circumstances should the canvas supplied with any SureShade system ever be placed in a washing machine.

You Can’t Own a Boat Without Having a SureShade!

Love SureShade. SureShade solves our family's sun problems by providing coverage for the entire boat with ease. Setup is easy and quick, and nothing obstructs the fishing poles. I can even leave it out while underway - hit 30 knots without retracting the shades. Thank you for making this product a reality and supporting DIYers with older boats.
