How to Protect Your Wood Patio Furniture From Sun Damage

How to Protect Your Wood Patio Furniture From Sun Damage

Patios are great for relaxing, entertaining, and taking full advantage of beautiful, warmer weather. If you have the perfect patio furniture to go along with it, even better. However, patio furniture can be quite an investment — especially if it’s wood. If you plan on having your outdoor wood furniture for years to come, you might want to consider a plan to protect it!

All outdoor furniture is susceptible to the elements like rain, wind, hail, and normal wear and tear. Wood furniture, in particular, is also exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun. It can cause damage like fading, darkening, and even permanent discoloration.

Luckily, there are steps you can take to prevent all of that. Here, we’re sharing the best ways to protect and extend the life of your wood patio furniture.

Use furniture covers

A great way to protect your patio furniture from sun damage is to simply cover it. Instead of waiting until colder weather rolls in, make it a habit to cover your furniture whenever you’re not using it. While it’s an extra step you’ll need to take pre- and post-relaxation, it will be worth extending the life of your wood furniture.

Don’t just cover it with what you have laying around — like sheets or table cloths — as they won’t actually protect your furniture from harmful UV rays. Buy covers specially designed for patio furniture, since they’ll provide more protection and durability. To find the best covers, start by checking out the retailer you purchased your patio furniture from. Another option is to explore other companies that sell patio furniture, as they’ll likely have lots of options, too. 

Add shading

Shading your patio has benefits beyond creating additional protection for your furniture. It can also protect you and your guests from the sun and cool things down a bit. There are lots of creative ways to add shading to your patio, like:

    • Umbrellas
    • Patio covers
    • Sail shades
    • Patio screens
    • Pergolas
    • Curtains
    • Plants and trees

If you invest in shades and umbrellas, be sure to check whether they offer UV protection. If not, you’ll still want to take extra steps to keep your patio furniture protected.

Use a protective wood oil

One of the best ways to protect your wood patio furniture from sun damage is to use a product made specifically for doing just that. Enter: WOCA Exterior Oil. Our water- and plant-based oil hardens from the inside to strengthen and protect any outdoor wood. The best part? It also provides UV protection, so your furniture will still look it’s best after several sun-filled summers. 

You can use WOCA Exterior Oil on more than just your wood patio furniture. Use it to protect your:

    • Deck
    • Garage door
    • Shed
    • Fences
    • Doors
    • Trim
    • Shutters
    • Benches
    • Swings
    • Flower boxes
