We start with our handmade, wood-treated frame which has been tested to stand up to the harshest of elements, be it rain, intense sun and heat, cold weather, ocean moisture damage, or standing ground water. All wood for exterior use is weatherproofed with a protective clear finish, which is designed for wood that is exposed to sunlight, water, or temperature changes. This finish forms a protective barrier against rain and moisture and its special oils allow the finish to expand and contract with the wood as seasons and temperatures change.
The fabrics we use have also been tested to withstand all outdoor climates, as well as stains caused by beverages and food. In addition to a variety of Sunbrella and Bella Dura solution-dyed acrylic fabric brands that are designed for outdoor use, we use marine-grade vinyl, the same used on yachts and boats, which does not fade or crack and can withstand the chemicals used in pools and spas. These are easy to maintain (see clean and care instructions) and come in a variety of patterns and textures.
Our signature cushions and pillows are filled with Dryfast Foam and marine grade thread designed for outdoor use. All hardware such as staples, screws, and snaps are all stainless steel metal to keep our product lasting longer without the worry of rust.
