Can I paint, sand, or add aftermarket modifications to my furniture?
POLYWOOD products are designed to resist fading, moisture, humidity, and other outdoor elements. There's no need to paint, sand, refinish, or modify your furniture to keep it looking and performing at its best. In fact, doing so will void the warranty.
Why Painting, Refinishing, Sanding, or Modifying POLYWOOD Furniture Isn't Recommended
Besides voiding the warranty, here's why you should keep your furniture and accessories as they are.
Painting and Refinishing
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic is used to make genuine POLYWOOD lumber. It's a non-porous material, which means paint and stain won’t easily adhere to it. Any finish applied to HDPE will eventually chip and flake off.
The surface of our lumber is designed to resemble natural wood. Sanding your furniture will scratch and damage the texture.
Making physical changes to your furniture affects the structural integrity, and in some cases, renders it unsafe to use. Installing a cup holder, drilling holes, or attaching wheels are a few examples of physical modifications.
