DIFFERENT CLIMATES AND WARPING:

Wood changes in each environment and sometimes can possibly warp (especially outdoors!) if it goes from a cold climate to a hotter climate etc. Even during shipping warping can happen due to changes in climate that can allow the wood to absorb moisture during transit (causing the product to warp). When it leaves our shop, we make sure that nothing is warped, lifting or out of alignment.
