When you buy a canvas tent, you want to have some assurance that it is going to last you a very long time. That’s why it is recommended that you only ever purchase products from reputable tent manufactures that have a history of creating high-quality products.

But even with the canvas tents that use reliable manufacturing methods, there is still going to be some damage that happens every now and then. Luckily, you’ll be able to help make your damaged canvas tent look as good as new by following these techniques.

Fixing Leaks

A high-quality canvas tent should be able to go years without needing any major tent repair.

When you own a canvas tent, there are several types of damage that could negatively impact the experience of using it. For example, leaks can sometimes develop if the tent is not stored properly. Thankfully, the tent repair needed to fix a slight leak is to take the tent through the weathering process.

This involves properly setting up the tent and then soak it in water. After the tent has fully dried, it should be soaked in water one more time and then left to dry out again. Once this process is complete, it should hopefully solve the issue of leaks.

Fixing Unraveling Seam or Zip Stitching

After quite a bit of use, even canvas tents from quality tent manufacturers have the possibility of experiencing unraveling seams or zip stitching. If the damage is only minor, then it should be able to be fixed by taking some polyester or linen thread and a needle in order to help sow it back together and reinforce it. But once the damage becomes too much, it might be time to spring for a new tent.

If you’re looking for a canvas tent that is going to last you quite a while and needs minimal tent repair, then make sure to contact us at Denver Tent Company.
