Due to the natural and intended rusting process of the Corten Steel, when wet, the brackets will drip and cause rust color staining to the wood and surrounding area.
Corten steel, over time, will patina. The rusted appearance of Corten serves as a protective coating and changes in color over time due to exposure to the elements, revealing its unique beauty. Results will vary by location, time, and other environmental factors.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR COASTAL AREAS
Saltwater prevents the protective layer from forming; we do not recommend using Corten in Coastal areas.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE PRESSURE TREATED LUMBER WITH CORTEN STEEL
Pressure-treated lumber (PT) uses chemicals to protect the wood and these chemicals can affect the steel.
DO NOT SAND CORTEN
Do not sand or otherwise affect the protective layer’s natural progression and its process to patina.
Toja Tip: Ensure lumber is fully inserted into the bracket cavity, resting on metal tabs for proper installation.
