Do you have any suggestions for type of material to use to replace an old cover on a teak table? The previous cover was vinyl on top and vinyl sides and it trapped moisture underneath and delaminated the teak veneer. The old cover held up well though

Should I reuse vinyl on top with sunbrella sides or sunbrella on top and sides or is there another material that will shed water and yet breath and allow it to stay dry underneath.

Use Sunbrella. I think the Furniture Fabric line is perfect for this type of cover.

Thanks, Matt

If it needs to breath I use the standard uncoated Sunbrella, the furniture type is softer to handle, though personally never used it on anything left out all the time.

I agree the marine grade Sunbrella would be acceptable choice as well. It is just a bit stiffer but it has better water resistance. Another option would be SurLast. It is softer than marine grade and more water resistant than Furniture Fabric. But it does not come in nearly as many colors and will not last quite as long in the sun.
