Furniture that is exposed to sunlight will need to be protected so that it doesn’t fade or crack. Sun damage can occur for a number of reasons: If you have trees in your yard that receive heavy amounts of sunlight, they can damage your furniture. If your home has an abundance of asphalt and doesn’t have any finish to keep it from absorbing the sun’s heat, the pavement can fade and crack. The outdoor furniture can also absorb the heat and damage. For this reason, it is important to finish your patio or landscaping with an anti-ultraviolet film or any other ultraviolet blocking material that will help protect your furniture from damage.
Ways to protect your furniture from sun damage are not difficult if you know what materials to use to finish your landscaping. Finish the area of the patio or driveway with a sturdy, durable surface that will protect your furniture. Some good choices include flagstones, bricks, concrete, or stone pavers. By using materials that are heat resistant, you can ensure that your furniture will not fade or crack.
