"PERFECTION!!!!!"
- Bev L
"We have 2 covers; one on each side."
Bev L, Jul 17, 2023
This cover is PERFECT for our west-facing pergola! We put it up ourselves; tip- tie twine around the 4 corner grommets, then use the twine to help “pull” the cover over the top. If there is a seam in your cover, it goes up and down, not sideways. 😉. We can now sit under the cover, look up and see the sun, but it is shaded and it’s really perfect! We used bungees to secure and toggle bolts on the corners. We now have a perfectly useable deck and pergola. We also got shades to go on the front.

The drapes look great and block out the sun. WE can use our gazebo all day long now. We have been locking for a product like these drapes for quite a lone time.

Very nice curtains. Good quality and keep the bright sun out. The only negative is that I was hoping they wouldn't blow in the wind because they are weighted but they do.

I think I was one of the first customers for this product. My first cover was miscut (too short) and had to be redone. The second attempt turned out perfectly. Cover is well made, heavier material, good quality grommets and stitching.

"Exactly what I wanted"

I love the ability to have a custom sling made for the area I needed to cover. The material is durable and not cheaply constructed. I forgot to order the hanging kit so we made due with items from Lowe's. I highly recommend Coverstore to anyone that has done a websearch looking for a product they make or carry.

Product came in sized as expected and in a timely fashion. Quality material, but would love some other colors. The sizing and ordering process was simple and accurate. Will definitely use the coverstore for other projects like out door drapes.
