Some customers decide not to treat their product at all and to just leave it to naturally weather and season. However we recommend the use of a furniture oil periodically, to help moisturise the wood and help to delay the aging process. We do advise the use of a waterproofing product to the exterior of sheds and summerhouses if you want to avoid damp or water ingress to the inside of your building. Wood is naturally porous and the water ingress is of no detriment to the structure of the building due to the tanalising, but it can be bothersome if you are wanting to keep the inside dry.
What will happen to it if its left with just the base treatment (tanalising)? If left untreated the wood will fade in colour turning either a light grey/silver or a darker grey in places over time.
On odd occasions some parts of the timber can turn a blackish shade. Differences in how the appearance of the wood changes can depend on variables such as: location in the garden, exposure to weather, exposure or lack of exposure to sunlight and natural differences in the wood.
Why are there splits and cracks appearing? All wood when left outside, or exposed to changes in temperature or weather conditions, will experience some splitting, warping, cracking or some other kind of movement. This is not a detriment to your product in any way shape or form and these are natural occurrences, and characteristics of having wooden garden furniture. T forget guys, this is garden furniture and is meant to be stood outside for years, so please expect some weathering.What if water gets in the splits, doesn? T this make the wood vulnerable? If the product had not been pressure treated then the answer would be yes, mainly due to the fact that micro organisms will get into the cracks in the timber and with the mixture of water it makes the wood softer and easier for the little critters to devour. But luckily your product has been pressure treated with Tanalith-E or Tanatone treatment, which is a copper phosphate treatment that is pumped, under pressure, deep into the grain of the timber.
This treatment stops micro organisms eating the timber, yes that? T come anywhere near, they will have to find another picnic. So rest assured that the splitting and cracking is perfectly fine, and these occurrences will come and go with changes in the weather.These kinds of occurrences are perfectly natural and will be of no detriment to your product. If you have any concerns then feel free to add your own aftercare treatment to the timber. This item is in the category "Garden & Patio\Garden & Patio Furniture\Garden & Patio Tables".
