Has anyone needed a solution for protecting metal furniture from the elements in an oceanfront location?

I recently got a call from a woman who enjoyed the porch that I'd created for a designer show house in Media Pa. She wanted me to design her porch on Long Beach Island. Almost all of the furnishing fit perfectly. However I had some concerns about the metal club chairs in the salt air. After doing some research I came across a product by Everbrite. Its a clear coating formulated to protect metal surfaces from salt air and corrosion. It is available in satin and matte finish and can be sprayed on. I'm so glad that I will be able to give her the look that she loves with confidence that she and her family will be able to enjoy it for years to come..

    I don't need the metal protecting but I wanted to comment about the porch. It is beautiful with a perfect setting.

    This is great information, we live on the Gulf Coast and it is so hard to find outdoor furniture that won't rust or corrode so quickly. I'm going to go out and find this product right away.

    Can you give us a closer look at that ceiling light? This is lovely!

    The salinity (salt) level is higher in your area. The product will indeed prolong the furniture's life but it will probably deteriorate in 5-7 yrs.- about the time that you're ready for a new style anyway!

    I live in the bay area, inland from San Francisco. Corrosion, rust, rot, you name it. And, I do not change my style, ever. I will look for that product, and see what it says.
