We purchased the Nourison Wav01/Sun & Shade as an outdoor carpet for our deck. The carpet was delivered quite promptly. The carpet is a nice addition to the deck, making it more colorful and inviting. The very first day on the deck, it was put to the test, when it rained quite a bit. I was surprised at how well it faired with all that water. It seemed to dry out fairly well. The carpet seems well constructed and I imagine it will give us a quite a bit of use. I will certainly let you know. Right now, we are quite satisfied.
