I live in Southern California, where the heat can reach up to 100 degrees (F) easily in the summer. I only have room for a table in the garage, and am a little worried about how the heat might affect the table via warping. I've ordered a 18mm table (Joola Tour 1800) - in general will it be okay or might it suffer? If so, would this be a slow process over many years or happen on the first couple of hot days?

The table should be in the storage position most of the time, and back in a corner that shares walls with the house - not in direct sunlight. It's very dry out here, and the coldest it ever gets out here is 40 degrees (F) or so at nights during the winter.

    Update after about a year: the table has been holding up just fine through the summer and last winter. I ended up with an 18mm Joola table and have had zero issues. Oct 14, 2017 at 22:04

There won't be much damage to the table's surface unless it is exposed to direct sunlight. But the change in climate might cause slight damage. Covering the table with a thick table cover would be the best option. The thicker the table's surface is the better protection it provides....

Hope this helps!!!
