Sunbrella will last forever if treated well. The problem is the thread that is used to sew the stuff together. The stitching will fail before the fabric. A boat I bought in 1990 still has the original Sunbrella bimini and dodger. I spent the extra money for a UV resistant thread ($350/spool back then). Newer thraed is available now; don't know what the price is now.
