Terrace furniture has been designed to last very long under harsh conditions. But that does not mean they can do without care. On the contrary, they must be nurtured so that they last as long as possible.
Basic for the care of terraces furniture
Usually, terraces are available in the following materials: aluminum, plastic, wood, stainless steel and synthetic fibers. They each show quite different properties. A universal means, which maintains its quality in the long run, would be hardly to be found.
