Yes I found out that even rot proof timber needs a coat of paint or three to survive outside. Mine has been treated with copper chrome arsenate and whilst it survived for a couple of years, once the rain and sun got to it the whole lot warped. Here we have sulpher crested cockatoos and they like to peck at the track work if no ones around. They would stand on the track an attempt to pull the track bonds off with their beaks. They didn't succeed in pulling the track bonds off but did rip the rails out of the plastic chairs. So I had to put in new short lengths of rails at frequent intervals.
Now I have hinged covers and the cocky problem is a thing of the past.
