What is the first thought that comes through your mind when you hear “resin patio furniture" or “plastic patio furniture"? Is the word cheap or flimsy? You are not alone. But what you may not know is it is the latest trend and spreading fast.

Today’s manufacturers make resin and plastic patio furniture in such a way that it closely resembles painted wood. There are some that make their plastic Adirondack chairs and resin patio furniture out of Polymer. This material is made of HDPE which is a high density version of polyethylene plastic. It is a hard, strong, and heavy plastic resin that has been purified and UV protected. Other manufacturers use EnviroWood which is a synthetic wood substitute made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and containers. The plastic is permeated with UV stabilized coloring that is consistent throughout.

Plastic Adirondack chairs and furniture have been designed for comfort and are built to last. They are unaffected by sun, rain, snow, even chlorine and saltwater. There is no need to paint or sand your plastic or resin patio furniture or apply a treatment seasonally. It does not rot, warp, crack or splinter. And because the furniture has solid color throughout, you can leave your plastic Adirondack chairs outside year-round because they will not fade.

With such life-long features, it is no wonder why people are getting sold on plastic and resin patio furniture. If you have not heard enough, the maintenance-free characteristic bears repeating. Outside of caring for and cleaning your furniture with soap and warm water, you can “sit back, relax and forget about it" says Poly-Wood, Inc. And if by chance you get a tough stain requiring additional cleaning power, such as a bleach/water mixture or a power wash, you can do so without affecting the color of your furniture.

Most plastic furniture manufacturers, if not all, use stainless steel hardware in their construction process. The hardware used has a high level of corrosive resistance that complements the already unique nature of the furniture allowing you to leave it outside year-round. The solid, heavy-duty construction keeps all furniture made of recycled plastic or resin on your deck or in your yard. A plastic Adirondack chair, on average, weighs between 45 to 50 lbs. Flimsy is definitely not the right adjective to describe this furniture.

And that is not all. Plastic and resin patio furniture comes in a variety of colors and styles. The Adirondack style has been a very popular version for plastic furniture. With plastic Adirondack chairs, benches and swings, you can find a classic, curved back or shellback style. Along with those choices you can choose colors such as white, patina, natural, teak, green and even lively colors such as flamingo, caribbean blue, and banana.

Although you may spend a little more for plastic and resin patio furniture styles, you will find it is an investment worth considering. Whether you are looking for furniture to place on a rustic seaside deck or for a formal garden, you may find exactly what you are looking for in among the wide selection of plastic Adirondack chairs and furniture.
