We use extremely durable fabrics: most of which are heavily water-resistant, apart from one that is waterproof and a few upholstery fabrics incompatible with bad weather. Our covers can withstand British weather (except snow loading) however we do recommend you not leaving them out all year round, to extend the life of your cover as long as possible.
Yes, we do offer a measuring service for our covers. If you are looking for a boat cover such as a narrowboat cratch hood, we must measure your boat for you, using our proliner. This is because it is the only way to get a 100% accurate 3D measurement of the curves of the boat, however, not all our products require our measuring service. For example, if you’re getting side panels for your gazebo, you have the option of us sending you detailed instructions on how to measure your gazebo yourself.
Our products are extremely long-lasting with some fabrics lasting a minimum of eight years and a maximum of more than ten years. On top of that, all our products come with a five-year guarantee, to ensure that we trust the durability of all our covers.
Yes, we can clean and repair your canvas cover whether it’s made by us or not. We require repair jobs to be booked in, before visiting Canvasman to establish whether or not the cover is salvageable. If it is, we will require your product to be clean and dry before we can repair it. For repairs, we work on an hourly rate of £31.50 + VAT. The time required to complete the job will determine the final fee.
If you’d like to make an enquiry and book our repairs service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01943 851 444 with the details and a member of the team will get in touch with you.
It is crucial to maintain a regular cleaning schedule, ideally conducted twice-yearly – one session before the cruising season and one session at the end of the season, for your Canvasman cover to last as long as possible. This is why a lot of our customers like to take advantage of our cleaning service.
We can make and supply covers for anywhere, but depending on how far away you are there can be a cost implication if you require a measuring service. For example, in areas like Scotland.
