Outdoor furniture has one persistent, ever-present antagonist: the weather. While your microfiber sofa and heirloom-quality dining table are safe and snug inside, your patio furniture must be able to stand up to rain, sunshine, wind and more.

The life of outdoor furniture depends upon the quality with which it’s built, the materials that are used and the care and maintenance you provide for it. Whether you’re shopping for new patio furniture or are looking for tips to maintain furniture you already own, read on to learn how to maximize your investment.

Adirondack Chairs: What To Look For Before You Buy

Adirondack chairs just scream summer, don’t they?

With bright colors and wide, angled seats, we’re pretty sure they are a perfect patio furniture option for your outdoor area this summer.

But not all Adirondack chairs are created equally. Cheap patio furniture has its limits: Flimsy plastic can fade, break and shatter, while wood can rot and warp.

Our Adirondack chairs are constructed by true Amish craftsmen in Ohio. This outdoor furniture is made from recycled, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the same material used to make milk jugs and detergent bottles. This material is cleaned and converted into solid board stock, known as poly lumber or plastic lumber.

This material won’t crack, splinter, warp or deteriorate. The color penetrates throughout, and it’s permeated with UV protection so it won’t fade in the summer sun. Our Adirondack chairs are built for comfort, and they’re built to last.
