      Not true -Powder coated aluminum does not rust.

      "Outdoor furniture that is made of aluminum, both extruded or cast, will not rust because alumium is a non-ferrous metal which means it has no iron in it. Outdoor furniture that is made of wrought iron or steel can possibly rust."

      "Less expensive, inferior wrought iron or steel furniture is far more likely to rust than high-quality wrought iron or steel furniture. This happens because manufacturers of low-quality metal furniture often don't take the necessary steps to protect the metal from the moisture. Quality iron or steel furniture will be far less likely to rust due to their primer and powder-coating processes during production."

    I stack mine together and wrap them in a clear painters plastic tarp and tie it around the legs to secure it.

    I spray all new metal furniture or yard ornaments with polyurethane. Each year in spring I clean and respray. I have found that this prolongs the life if my pieces. That said, I live in the south and winters are mild.

    Cover with ready made outdoor furniture covers available almost anywhere and store items in a dry area, if possible. I have storage beneath a bedrm. the previous owner added on (he had 7 children) and this area is ideal.

    Furniture made out of what? Plastic furniture just set in a covered area. The polyurethane idea is good. I even sprayed an old wind chime after cleaning and spray painting it. The polyurethane helps protect metal and wood stuff from the elements. Or just a few light coats of paint.
