Care and Finish. Refinishing your furniture
Forever Redwood furniture is built to last decades in any climate. But, after a few years in the year-round weather, the surface finish will fade and it will not look as sharp as it once did. The wood may dry out some and develop a few surface checks. But, underneath, the wood is still perfect and this video will show you how a weekend project can make any Forever Redwood piece that has been out for years look like the day you first took it out of the box again.
