Some items are constructed with metal (mild steel). Earth de Fleur Homewares does not give warranty against rusting or natural corrosion on any metal item. Rusting of metal is a normal process and the time taken for natural rust to form on the item will depend on the position, proximity to water & sun, & how the item is treated. We recommend protecting your item with a UV protective clear lacquer to minimise rusting and colour fading. We personally coat our products twice yearly with White Knights Squirts Clear Gloss Lacquer. See your local Hardware or Paint store for more detailed info. When using metal bowls as ponds we recommend to paint with a sealant or use a pond liner.
CUSTOM MADE CORTEN STEEL
Each product has its own unique character and natural finish. The colour variations are part of the intentional design and being an organic process, it cannot be controlled.
Exposure to the elements and environment will cause changes and a continuation of the rusting process, to slow this down, we recommend a small degree of maintenance.
This involves a spray-on coat of Penetrol when needed which can be purchased from any hardware store.
Please note that harsh weather conditions may cause running. We disclaim all responsibility of damages that may have been as a result of rust development.
