With the past few months of unexpected cyclones and tropical storms here in New Zealand, it’s important to know how to batten down the hatches and protect your outdoor room from the wild and damaging weather we’ve been experiencing. To protect your outdoor room from adverse weather conditions, follow these tips:
Secure Loose Objects
Before an expected weather event, make sure to secure any loose objects in your outdoor room. This includes chairs, tables, plant pots and any other objects that could become airborne in strong winds. Move these objects indoors or secure them with ropes or bungee cords to prevent them from being blown away. If it’s too late, it’s safer to stay indoors than risk an injury trying to save a few broken pots and plates.
Invest in Quality Outdoor Furniture
Choose furniture that is durable and weather-resistant, such as aluminium, teak, or all-weather wicker. These materials are less likely to be damaged by strong weather. Remember to bring cushions and rugs inside if time to do so before a weather event.
Our durable aluminium Coastal Series Shutters are the perfect solution to protecting your home from poor weather. Designed for doors and windows in even the most demanding of conditions, choose from our premium range of shutters to keep the weather out and your outdoor room safe and sheltered.
