CARING FOR YOUR OUTDOOR FURNITURE

 

The pressure treated wood that is used in manufacturing your Amish Outdoor Furniture is a #1 quality grade ready for painting or staining. The wood is primarily Southern Yellow Pine, kiln-dried before and after treatment with the new, safer pressure-treated lumber treatments. The grade, drying, and treating produce a quality lumber, not readily available to consumers.

We highly recommend treating our products with a yearly application of a high quality ultra-violet (UV) oil-based water seal.
The ultra-violet rays of the sun are what is hardest on wood. There are several brands of clear or stain oil-based water seal products available that are designed specifically for pressure treated wood. Choose one with the highest UV protection you can find. A good UV protection will help protect the wood and to prevent discoloration and cracking from the sun. This will greatly prolong the life of your furniture as well as enhance its appearance. Follow manufacturer's instructions for all applications.

If so desired, pressure-treated wooden furniture may simply be allowed to weather naturally over time.  Or, you may paint or stain it. If you choose any of these variations, then you would not apply an oil based water seal.


Maintenance Tips:

~ Tighten all screws, nuts, bolts, etc., periodically.
~ Faithfully applying a good quality UV water seal will greatly prolong the life of your furniture as well as enhance its appearance. Follow manufacturer's instructions for all applications.
