Exposure to chemical solutions, weathering, salt, all contribute to unsightly staining, or discoloration which is a natural part of the aging process for all steel and iron-based materials, therefore it is not considered a defect and is not covered under the Woodline Shade Solutions Warranty.

Galvanized steel will show unavoidable imperfections due to the finishing process and therefore must be accepted in the condition in which they are received.
3 Eucalyptus Wood
We only use sustainable eucalyptus timber for our wooden components which are treated with marine yacht varnish to fortify them for the rigors of outdoor living. We recommend the periodic care of wooden components with a light sanding and reapplication of the varnish coating once a year to maintain the natural beauty of the wood.
All fittings, nuts, bolts, pulleys, and cleat components are made with high grade stainless steel and weatherproof nylon. Maintaining these fittings and components is imperative to the longevity and the proper operation of the shade system. A simple occasional freshwater rinsing will help keep them working well and looking good.
