Like a piece of fine furniture, with general care and maintenance, your fire pit can last for many years. Keep free from moisture and earth contact. Water stains, decomposition of the oak and rust on the barrel rings will occur with constant moisture contact. It is recommended to utilize the adjustable feet that are installed with the product to keep separation from the ground. Not recommended to be set up over soft dirt or lawn over long periods of time. Barrels may tilt or fall over soft, uneven ground.
Before delivery, your Wine barrel fire pit and counter top is coated with a marine epoxy and minimum of 3 coats of marine Spar Varnish, a UV protective varnish commonly used on the exterior woodwork of fine boats. Metal tops are coated with Permalac, a coating designed for metals in the exterior. It is recommended to conduct yearly maintenance to identify discoloration or cracking of the varnish and or provide a new exterior coat of protection with either Permalac, Spar Varnish or a UV protective furniture oil/beeswax as needed. A protective cover is provided with your purchase.
