Garden Furniture Product Use and Care Advice

All parasols, pavilions and sunshades must be correctly secured before use. Also these garden products should never be left up in windy or inclement weather conditions. These products are not covered by our garden furniture guarantee if damaged because of incorrect fixing or bad weather.

Any parasol that is returned will be sent to the manufacturer for a cause of damage assessment, if the reason for the damage is in dispute.

Rattan furniture whether natural or synthetic is hand woven with fibre strands. Occasionally there may be strand ends that appear whilst rattan furniture is in use. This is not a fault and can be easily rectified by reworking the strand so that the end is tucked back within the frame or weave. If this problem persists please email your comments and a photograph to and we will be able to help.

Painted cast aluminium, if scratched or chipped should be touched up in with hammerite paint to prevent oxidisation – aluminium cannot rust but a white oxide will form – if this is not repaired the oxide will spread under the powder coating which will eventually cause flaking.

International Patio Furniture Guarantee

Our garden furniture guarantee is applicable outside the UK, but is the responsibility of the international customer to return and collect any products or parts, under the client’s own cost and volition.

Ex-display Products

Occasionally we offer discounted garden products that have been either used in our showrooms or at exhibitions. Please note that this ex-display garden furniture is bought as seen and is NOT covered by any of our guarantees.
