When you receive your furniture it will already be treated with treatment which lasts for 6 months. We do recommend you treat your furniture yourself and make sure prior to treatment that your furniture is dry and clean before doing so.
As wood is a natural product it may expand and retract and change colour according to weather conditions. Splits can happen on all kinds of wood therefore treatment is advised to minimize this, and also to prolong the use and appearance of your furniture. Splits generally close with the rain or the cooler weather.
We would suggest that you use any of the 5 year wood treatments but not any kind of varnish or creosote based product.
Any further qestions or queries please get in touch as we would be happy to help.
