Robb & Stucky If maintenance is an issue, cast aluminum and sling products are some of the best choices for outdoor furnishings. Aluminum is durable, lightweight, and will not rust. High quality aluminum frames have an electrostatically applied powder-coated paint finish, a process similar to that used in the automotive industry.  Cast aluminum is as practical as it is beautiful, lightweight and rust-proof, cast aluminum is suitable for both interior and exterior decor. It’s sand cast and hand finished, so minor differences in pieces within a set can be expected. In addition to aluminum furniture, Robb & Stucky offers teak furniture. As durable as it is lovely, teak is an extremely dense, fine-grained hard wood that’s been used in the marine industry for centuries. There’s been a tremendous resurgence in teak furniture. Teak is a very beautiful wood. Oiled every six months, it retains its brown color. If you choose not to oil it, it takes on a soft gray patina, which is also very beautiful. Either way, our teak furniture has mortise and tenon joinery, which gives it a precise fit. It lasts and lasts. Manufacturers are also ‘mixing media’ these days. Teak top tables are being paired with cast aluminum bases, teak enhances the look of strap, and so on. There are some truly interesting combinations coming out of the industry today. Robb & Stucky addressed environmental issues surrounding teakwood by researching suppliers who harvested from carefully controlled plantations in Indonesia. These teak suppliers guarantee reforestation, thus preserving the teakwood forests. www.robbstucky.com/patio.htm

Redwood Patio Furniture

Old Growth Again's "Forever" redwood furniture is unique in the marketplace. Because they mill their own wood, the boards on our "Forever" redwood furniture are cut a full two-inches by six inches thick. Most picnic tables and benches are made from lower grade redwood (con-heart or lower). These lower quality boards are usually one inch or one-and-a-half inches thick. OGA outdoor furniture is available in three grades of Redwood:
1. OLD-GROWTH (from trees over 200 years old) - when our forests were logged in the 1950’s, many high-quality logs were left on the ground. OGA recovers and mills this exquisite wood. Because of over logging in the past, old-growth redwood is very difficult to find anymore.
2. MATURE-GROWTH is from trees averaging 100 years of age, and,
3. YOUNG-GROWTH (from trees averaging 50 years of age).
Old Growth Again offer's free shipping in the continental U.S. Your furniture will arrive in pieces for you to assemble Or you may also have your furniture sent fully assembled. Just e-mail them for a freight quote.
Each piece of redwood outdoor furniture can be customized to your needs. If you don’t see the size you need – just ask. www.oldgrowthagain.com

 

Care of Patio Furniture

Patio furniture is a large investment and not something you will want to replace annually. With proper care and cleaning, you should get years of enjoyment from your patio tables, chairs and benches. When new furniture is purchased, often a care leaflet is included. This info is easily lost over the years. Since outdoor patio furniture comes in a wide variety of materials, there are many different approaches to maintenance. Most patio and garden furniture can be cleaned with mild soap and water. A pressure washer with between 1200 to 1300 psi is useful for cleaning many types of patio furnishings, but be sure to use a low setting as varnish, paint or powder coat finishes could be removed accidentally. 

Wood patio furniture that has been finished with a exterior grade varnish can be cleaned first and re-treated if weathered or worn after it is completely dry. Wood garden furniture is best stored indoors over winter except for teak and cedar which have natural preservatives in the wood. 

Wicker patio furniture can usually be cleaned with a garden hose and bristle brush to dislodge the debris that gets in the weave. Do it in full sun if possible on a dry day so that it dries quickly. When dry, you can apply a paste wax to the frame to help keep it clean and water resistant. Be aware though that the effect of water on paste wax can leave whitish spots, like the rings that cold beverage glasses leave on polished furniture. If the wicker is unpainted, a product like Thompsons Water Seal might be a good choice for exposed frames and worn areas. 

Fabric cushions can be scrubbed with a soft bristle brush and rinsed with water. Allow to dry completely before putting into use or storage. Some types of cushions are mildew resistant and can be scrubbed with a solution of 1 cup bleach, 1 cups detergent, gallon of water. Mix and spray on the cushion and allow it to soak for 30 minutes, then scrub and rinse with water and allow to dry completely. When storing fabric cushions, never wrap them in plastic. Plastic does not breathe and you are much more likely to get mildew. 

Fabric from patio chairs and hammocks can often be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle. You can add bleach for white items. To avoid shrinkage, stretch the fabric that goes on frames back in place while damp. Be sure to clean or treat the frames before the fabric is put back on. Store fabric outdoor furniture indoors off season. 

Resin or Poly patio furniture is the easiest in the care dept. A product designed to clean boats, like Greezed Lightning, melts body oils and grime. Just be sure to do it outside and rinse well. Most general purpose cleaning sprays like 409, or Fantastic do a good job too, just don't let them sit on the finish for long. On a tough stain, you can sand past the stained finish with fine grit wet-dry sandpaper or abrasive powdered cleaner and polish the surface with paste wax to help re-finish where you have sanded. Mildew can be removed with a spray like Tilex, but just wash clean immediately. 

Patio umbrellas require some lubrication after being in storage usually. Check the joints and moving parts. Use a spray or drop lubricant on metal frames and bar soap or paste wax on wooden umbrella frames. Be sure to avoid getting it on the umbrella's fabric cover. Wash the covers using a soft bristle brush and a mild soap or detergent.
