Uwharrie's Lumber: A number of environmental objections plague most outdoor furniture products. Tropical lumber harvesting devastates rain-forests, old growth deforestation threatens endangered species, and plastics disposal harms the environment. Whether or not these alarms are overstated, the concerns behind them are valid. Uwharrie Chair Company offers a simple alternative to imported teak, painted metal or hardwood, and molded plastic: pressure treated pine.
The wood of choice for decks, docks, and landscape walks, treated lumber offers distinct advantages over other traditional outdoor materials. It is insect and rot resistant, milled from a renewable resource, plantation-grown southern pine. Uwharrie Chair Company uses heavy, one inch thick, premium grade lumber, kiln dried after it has been pressure treated against rot and insects. It may be left natural, stained, or painted.
Paint: Paints used to coat Uwharrie Chair products are a water based, latex enamel, with special SPF component to reduce fading and toxic free rubber-like component to reduce peeling. The pressure treated wood used in Uwharrie Chairs requires no additional protection from exposure to weather. This is why it's possible to distress the finish, giving the the appearance of time-worn antiques. As Uwharrie products age naturally, their rustic character will be enhanced. You should expect to see some additional paint loss and some surface cracking; exposed wood will eventually turn dark. But even as nature matures your furniture, the wood and the product will remain structurally sound for years to come.
Finishes: There are four (4) finishes to choose from, natural, washed, distressed, and pristine. Within the paint finishes, there are 27 colors to chose from.
Natural - Plain pressure treated lumber, no clear coat, no paint, good for natural aging by the weather, or finishing yourself for that one of a kind, your's only, look.
Washed - A wash is a watery paint finish that palely colors the wood allowing the grain to come through as if it had been painted long ago and weather many many a washing so that all that is left is more reminiscent of a stain than paint. it's a neat trick.
Distressed - Distressed is a couple coats of regular latex enamel paint. After it dries it is lightly sanded in places to give it a worn/antiqued look.
Pristine - is 3-4 coats of paint left untouched.
Left or Right Wave: You can choose which side you'd like the wave to be on, left or right facing seatbacks for creating harmonious, symmetrical arrangements. Note: When choosing, it should be considered as if you are standing facing the front of the chair.
Hardware: Bolts, nuts and washers are stainless steel, no rusting or corroding.
