We recommend the use of Guardsman Outdoor Wood Protector which repels stains and protects against mildew.
Wood is a natural product which can expand and shrink under different weather conditions. This may lead to micro fractures in the wood which is perfectly natural.
We recommend you tighten the screws on the table periodically.
To give extra protection against hot cups, plates etc and accidental spillages, it is always best to protect the beauty of your table with place mats.
Do not use a silicone based product as the product will cause a buildup of silicone on the product, can discolour and dry out your timber.
Like all outdoor furniture, these products will keep their new appearance longer if they are protected from the elements when not in use. We recommend using a protective cover.
