Metal and Stone Garden Furniture Buyers Guide
Outdoor garden furniture design has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years with the old style wooden garden furniture becoming less popular in favour of the sleek lines and minimal maintenance offered by metal and stone furniture. All our outdoor garden furniture is sourced by Keith Laird and Ian Hodgett who have over 60 years experience between them in seeking out the best quality products at competitive prices, often travelling far afield to Asia and Europe. Our respected suppliers include Alexander Rose, Norfolk Leisure and Lifestyle Garden and as one of the UK’s largest retailers we are able to negotiate deals to ensure you pay the best possible price for your garden furniture.
All our metal garden furniture is made from powder coated tubular steel or aluminium. Both materials are virtually maintenance free and rust proof, giving you furniture which will last for many years, provided it is cared for in an appropiate manner.
A stone top on a table gives your garden furniture more interest and is extremely hard wearing and resistant to stains and heat marks.
The stone adds considerable weight to the furniture which has to be taken into consideration if you will be moving the garden furniture around the garden. The stone is liable to crack and break if heavy objects are dropped on the surface; it should also be secured over winter and in high winds as it will break if left to blow around your outdoor space.
As usual the old adage applies, you get what you pay for and always pay as much as you can afford. All the stone and metal garden furniture retailed by Hayes is the very best on the market and will last many years longer than the budget sets on offer from many multi-national retailers. All our furniture is covered by our guarantee and we have a dedicated Customer Services tam to help should you have any queries or problems.
The furniture needs very little maintenance just a wash down in spring with a mild solution of warm water and washing-up liquid.
Our garden furniture is the best quality and designed to last at least 15 years under normal wear. The furniture must be secured when the weather is windy or stormy as an damage sustained is not covered by the warranty which in most cases is 12 months, however some sets do have a 2 year guarantee.
