While wooden benches slowly fade and rot your Home and Garden Ironwork bench will always be ready for you to sit on when the sun comes out.
Our benches are hot dip galvanised, protecting them from the elements and stopping them from rusting. If they get dirty you can wash them down with clean water and a cloth, no need for any detergents, and they will be ready for use time after time. When you think about it like that our benches are incredible value for money.
Both finishes need time to weather naturally. At first you may notice a white dust on the surface. This can either be wiped off gently outside with a cloth or just left to wear off as the item is used. Any small blemishes and imperfections are characteristic of a galvanised finish and only serve to add character to your item.
We recommend that pots or vases are not left on tables for the first few months to allow the whole table top to weather evenly.
Whilst our furniture is protected from the weather it can stain if vegetation is left to rot on it. We advise clearing any leaves or fruit that has fallen on to any surface to avoid staining. Also tannin from any green oak structure can stain if allowed to drip onto the furniture after rainfall.
