The Cardiff range is made of kiln dried redwood which is a slow growing tree with a lighter grain. The benches are pressure treated to protect against rot and insect attack for a minimum of 15 years.
Solution used for pressure treatment has an initial green colour. The intensity of the green colour increases with the content of resin in timber. Green spots indicate good quality of wood. Upon external exposure the green colour slowly weathers to a warm brown colour and in the longer term weathers to a silver grey colour. This does not affect the performance of the preservative.
To minimise twisting and warping all benches should only be used on firm level ground.
Softwood is a natural material which can twist and split during periods of wet/dry, hot/cold weather. If cracks do appear it is a natural occurrence and not a fault with the product or material. The best way to treat this is to use a cloth and rub a little PVA wood glue into the crack and once dry sand the area lightly. This will not affect the treatment of the product.
One engraved inscription is included in the price of your memorial bench. You have a choice of a computer controlled engraving direct into the top rail of the bench, brass plaque or laminate plaque.
