Wooden tables and chairs will be discolored or discolored by the sun if left in the sun all day, every day. This damage can be reversed, but the process is often difficult and time consuming. As the wood continues to be damaged by the sun, it will weaken. This exposes it to the risk of cracking and chipping.
I don't want to play an obvious drum too hard, but since wood is a natural material, it can be affected by nature. Hot and cold temperatures, scorching UV rays, rain, snow, the whole elemental gang, can really change or damage your wooden items if you're not careful. It doesn't matter how durable they are. If you leave a planter on the patio table for a few weeks in direct sun, there may literally be a line of tan on the table once you take it off, like those little heart-shaped bronzing stickers that everyone put on their abdomen in high school.
If your outdoor table and chairs are already damaged by the elements, you can avoid further damage by investing in a tablecloth. We recommend using a table and chair set cover if you have an outdoor dining table with several chairs around it.
