The fear that they will spoil themselves in the open or lose their original appearance quickly makes many people hesitate when buying a wooden table for their garden.
A wooden table will indeed require a little more maintenance and attention than other types of furniture. But in return, it offers us its warmth and strong decorative effect from the first day.
If you are thinking about buying an outdoor timber set, discover in this post the keys to make a correct choice and carry proper maintenance of your wooden set.
When choosing a wooden garden table or set for your outdoor, the type and quality of the materials will determine their resistance to environmental conditions. The required maintenance for the excellent conservation of each piece of furniture will also depend on the kind of material.
Tables with teak wood top and aluminium structure.
One of the advantages of a metal structure over a wooden frame is that we eliminate much of the maintenance work. Precisely we save the maintenance of those parts where the wood looks less and is more difficult to access to apply maintenance products.
We have managed to find the best aesthetic balance with this combination of materials by betting on the best materials and the best qualities.
Aluminium structures with powder coating.
Despite being built of metal, it is common to see tables made of iron materials, such as iron or steel, rusted and peeled paint. For proper maintenance, these structures need to be sanded every time, apply some antioxidant enamel to prevent their deterioration and then be repainted.
Maintenance of timber surfaces.
Teak wood is known for its natural durability outdoors and its ability to withstand extreme environmental conditions. Its natural lubrication makes it very resistant to water for its impermeability. It protects it also from the attack of fungi and termites.
Suppose we do not apply any treatment to teak wood over time. In that case, it will adopt an aged greyish appearance that equally delights many.
On the contrary, if what you want is to keep the wood lustrous, a little care and specific treatments will help you waterproof it and find the desired brightness and tone.
Maybe you have more doubts about the maintenance or the different possibilities of incorporating wooden furniture into your outdoor space project. Do not hesitate to contact us or come to any of our TODOJARDIN centres to tell us.
We’ll be delighted of helping you.
