If you have invested in some deckchairs for your garden, you’ll no doubt want them to last as long as possible. Fabric deck chairs are a great choice - they are comfy and come in many fantastic colours and styles. However, over time, the fabric can become weak and damaged, and eventually, you might have to replace it.
Firstly you’ll need to remove all the old, damaged material from the frame. This may be an easy or slightly more challenging job, depending on how it’s attached. If you have cushions, it may simply be a case of unzipping the cushion covers and then replacing them with new ones. However, if you have a more traditional deckchair, you’ll have to remove the fabric - if there are nails in place, remove these with pliers. Make a note of where the fabric was attached before to help guide you for when you come to put the new material on.
