TOP OF THE TABLE DON T MESA WITH THESE PRODUCTS GREAT OUTDOORS THE best sort of outdoor tables will with- stand extremes in weather, especially if they are regularly bought in under cover. There are some materials more durable than others, but no matter whether you prefer stone over wood, or even plastic, each has practical and aesthetic benefits. Stone and concrete tables are heavy but they hold up well in bad weather. Keep them in the sun to prevent mould or cracks. Engineered stone table tops are pricey but they look stylish in a stainless steel frame which makes the table easy to move. Stainless steel, aluminium, treated iron or other metal tabletops are robust choices, but will eventually discolour or rust. Coat the table top in a suitable sealant to offer some protection and keep it in a shaded spot in summer so it doesn't get too hot. Timber tables are never hot or cold and always look great, but they do have a limited shelf life. Choose a hardwood, such as Australian Jarrah, as it is one of the strongest and most durable in the world. A new product prepared for the outdoors is a laminate called Laminex Alfresco Compact. It can be used on tabletops and on benches or outdoor kitchen cupboard doors. Details: For more on Laminex Alfresco Compact Laminate, visit laminex.com.au. Discover Local.
