Timber doesn’t lend itself well to the outdoor elements. Most weather conditions can be harsh on furniture and cause it to deteriorate prematurely.
At A & L Furnishings we would always advise the use of iroko which is a durable, weather resistant timber. It is ideal for outdoor furniture, garden gates, decking, smoking shelters and external doors.
Iroko has a medium to course texture with open pores and an interlocked grain. It is rot and insect resistant and extremely durable.
