When the warm weather beckons us, we yearn for life outdoors. Our backyard becomes our refuge, the place where we unwind. And there is no better way to relax than to have a well furnished pool, deck, or patio.
If you are looking to furnish your outdoor refuge, we have the quality pieces to do it with. Our patio furniture creations will add warmth and style to your garden, and their quality will keep them in use for many years to come.
Only the finest materials and workmanship are used in manufacturing our patio furniture products. What type is right for you? Here is an overview of the pros and cons of patio furniture materials, and construction processes that go into every piece of our aluminum and iron patio furniture.
Wrought Aluminum: Our wrought aluminum patio furniture features heavy, .65 wall thickness tubing, strengthened at stress points with galvanized steel inserts. We also use perfect, hand applied 360 degree welds, which are triple hand polished. All material receives a powder coated finish using a high-solids polyester, which is ten times thicker than paint.
Cast Aluminum: We combine old-world casting techniques with a state-of-the-art finishing process to bring you the very best in cast aluminum patio furniture style and function. First, we hand-carve our designs in wood to offer exceptional detail. The woodcarving is used to create a mold into which superior grade molten aluminum alloy is hand-poured. The resulting casting is hand polished to provide a smooth, finished surface for painting. After a multi-step cleaning process, the furniture received a baked-on powder paint coat much thicker and harder than conventional wet paint. The piece then receives a hand-applied antique accent. Where assembly is required, stainless steel hardware is provided.
To maintain iron patio furniture wash it occasionally and apply liquid car wax at least twice a year. If you see any rust take care of it immediately with a wire brush and touch-up paint. Fast action will keep the rust from spreading. During the winter covering or storing your iron furniture inside will help to prolong its life.
Wrought Iron: For our wrought iron patio furniture we use galvanized parts for the mesh, U channel, foot glides, adjustment bars, and other key areas prone to rust. For appearance, our forging is done by highly skilled craftsmen. Our finishes were developed for the automotive industry using a plating process, which gives the product the highest salt spray resistance available for outdoor use.
About The Warranty: We manufactures only the finest high quality garden furniture and garden accessories, and are proud to back up our products with a written warranty. All of our metal garden furniture products and accessories come with a THREE-YEAR Warranty against manufacturer's defects and "significant" rust damage. All wrought iron products may exhibit small amounts of rust which can be eliminated through occasional maintenance and care of the product. Rust damage to any product placed for any period of time within five miles of a saltwater coastline is not covered.
Our mosaic table tops are made of stained glass and natural cement-like stone blend. The glass is hand cut into small square tiles, leaves, etc. Our unique process casts the glass pieces into the cement. This process leaves the tops and sides perfectly smooth, without any sharp or jagged pieces, and prevents the glass tiles from ever popping loose. Our mosaic table tops are made for both indoor and outdoor use. We do suggest, however, that you take them inside in the case of extreme cold or frost, just as you would statuary. Due to the natural expansion and contraction of cement in severe weather, hairline cracks may occur. To clean the table top, use a damp sponge with a non-abrasive cleaner and finish with a glass cleaner to bring a shine to the glass tiles. You may choose to seal the top with a petroleum based grout sealer to avoid any permanent staining. If tops are marked or bumped, fine sand paper may be used to remove the scuff.
