The cover is the part of the yurt that will need replaced every so often. Roof coverings experience the bulk of wear and tear. In most cases the roof cover will need to be replaced before the wall. Both of our vinyl coated fabrics have an 8 year manufacturers warranty. The Duro-Last roof carries a 15 year warranty.
Our Starfire wall fabric has a 5 year manufacturers warranty. Our Star800 wall fabric carries an 8 year manufacturers warranty. We have found that the walls will last much longer under normal use.
UV exposure is the most detrimental natural force on fabric. Carefully choosing your yurt site for shade will make the yurt more enjoyable in the summer as well as extending the life of the fabric.
Please see the FAQ "What is the outer covering made of?" for a complete explanation of these fabric choices.
