What makes resin patio furniture such a big material for garden furniture? The technical answer is that it is a nonvolatile substance due to simple molecular polymerization. The practical answer is that it is cheap, durable and easy to clean. All outdoor woodwork becomes worn and discolored to look over time, whether it is edible or coniferous wood. If the wood is not supplied with additional oil or paint that can protect the surface, the natural degradation of it will begin. Here are some tips to keep your resin patio furniture looking fresh and new.
