Weather can be unpredictable, which is why it is important to choose furniture that will last during the backyard season. Patio furniture can differ in its construction, so it is crucial to understand the difference between quality outdoor furniture and patio furniture that is best left on the clearance shelves. We’re here to help break down some great weatherproof materials that make up the quality backyard seating you can trust.
Our weatherproof chairs and tables are made out of powder-coated aluminum. Aluminum is light enough for easily moving closer to the fire on chilly evenings or rearranging to freshen up your outdoor room’s look. Yet, aluminum is also extra sturdy for increased durability and stability. In other words, it’s the perfect material for functional, weatherproof furniture.
Why does powder coating matter? Powder coating acts as an extra layer of protection to preserve your patio seating to last season after season. Powder-coated chairs and tables can greatly resist scratches, chips, and fading. Therefore, that strong shield ensures your patio pieces are durable enough to prevail against outdoor weather.
When searching for porch seating made out of wicker, look for resin wicker options. Resin wicker furniture is superior for withstanding weather over its counterparts. Resin coating resists absorption of a variety of harmful elements such as moisture and sunlight. The lack of moisture ensures mold and mildew are nowhere to be found. As for sunlight, resin coating resists fading and peeling from the sun for a lasting look. The sun can also cause wicker to become brittle and even break, but resin coating offers that added heavy-duty layer of defense.
Do you have to sacrifice comfort for durability? Of course not. Our Lyndale Swivel Rocking Chairs provide a thick, comfy feel to help unwind after a busy day, thanks to the high-density polyurethane foam. Our outdoor seating variety also utilizes Sunbrella® fabrics. All Sunbrella® fabrics are designed and engineered to resist fading and degradation for maximum performance and premium style.* This particular brand of fabrics is extra comfy, easy to clean, and made for backyard living.
Composite construction is utilized in some of our deck furniture options, too. Composite materials provide the desired look of wood without the fear of rotting. It is lower maintenance than wood yet extra strong to resist the outdoor elements. Composite design is also a safer option, especially for families, as it won’t splinter and cause painful slivers.
These are just some of the main materials the Outdoor GreatRoom™ Company utilizes to produce our high-quality, comfortable furniture.
