If we do not want them to stop with the passage of time, the best thing is also to give several hands.

Another material that we cannot lose sight of is the hurdle. It is ideal to place it on the ceiling, as a protection against the sun. It is not necessary to cover the entire terrace, but you can create a small advance with this material to protect the furniture you place on it.
