Are these blades really made of wood and can they handle damp weather without sagging? Most wood blades that are exposed to some weather I have seen the laminates separate or sag even under a covered porch.
Asked by: Bill
Yes, the outdoor fans are manufactured to handle the elements

We added the school light kit. Hunter fans simply are the best! The five other fans in our house are Hunter fans and now the final trashy fan is gone with a quiet Hunter fan in its place. Hunter fans are easy to assemble and install. I've installed other makes and Hunter is just the best. Several of the Hunter fans in our house are 20 years old and still are whisper quiet. Hunters cost a bit more than some others, but worth every dime. Buy value, not price.

I wish it had more like an oil rubbed bronze finish like the fairhaven hunter fan. But this works and almost matches the fairhaven hunter fan. I had to purchase this fan instead of the fairhaven, because the new fairhaven design no longer comes with a wall switch option. I ordered this one instead because it can be operated from a wall switch. I didn't want to use a remote controller to operate it.
