What is the best material to use for outdoor furniture?
Teak: Of all the possible wood choices for outdoor furniture, teak is, by far, the most popular choice. And for good reason. Teak has superior natural all-weather capabilities and has an unique aesthetic with its beautiful, warm tone. Teak has high oil and natural resin content, making it more resistant to insect attacks and resistant to water. The oils also protect the wood from dry rot, making teak a very strong and long-lasting option.
Aluminum: If you are looking to make a long-term investment in your outdoor space, try aluminum. This rust-resistant material is light-weight and easy to maintain for years of summer sunshine. The minimal style is great for anyone looking to achieve an industrial-inspired look in the great outdoors. Just be careful, because metals tend to get toasty when out in the Sun!
Wood: Wooden patio styles are a great way to keep your outdoor space versatile because they go with every decor style. The wood-grain feature of is a way to seamlessly bring nature onto your patio.
Plastic: HDPE is very well suited for use outdoors. it can withstand high temperatures in outdoor or factory settings. This material is also resistant to chemicals and most solvents. So substances like dilute acids, oils, and grease do not absorb into the material. These chemical resistance properties allow HDPE to be very durable and adaptable for outdoors.
Resin Wicker: Another great material for is synthetic resin because of its low-maintenance, light weight and extremely durable all-weather properties. Traditional synthetic resin is typically woven in a wicker style for the classic outdoor look. Synthetic resin wicker furniture can withstand the harsh conditions of the outdoors.
Can you leave outdoor furniture outside?
Patio furniture is designed to be outdoors. However, fall and winter weather can damage your furniture if you don’t take the proper precautions. Always clean and apply protective sealants to your furniture before storing or covering it for winter.
You won’t regret it when it’s spring and time to enjoy the outdoors. Protecting your outdoor furniture during the winter will save you money and leaving one unprotected during just one bad snowstorm can cause irreversible damage.
Does Outdoor Furniture Need to be Covered?
During the off-season when you are not outdoors as much, it can be a wise idea to protect it or store it for the winter. If space is available, outdoor furniture can be stored in a shed or garage, or even a crawl-space or storage locker. Another option is covering your furnishings in place with a quality cover.
