Adirondack Chairs - Plastic Or Resin, Offer Many Advantages To Original
The Adirondack chair is a timeless classic in the furniture world. The chair was originally developed by a man by the name of Thomas Lee who was looking to create a recreational piece of furniture that could be enjoyed by people vacationing in the Adirondack mountains. The classic features of the Adirondack chair and the other pieces of furniture crafted in the same style are: a high, angled back that is perfect for relaxing; a sloping seat; and wide armrests that are perfect for placing beverages upon. Traditional Adirondack chairs are crafted from wood such as pine, cedar, teak, and mahogany.
While a large part of the appeal of Adirondack furniture is without question its comfortable design, the wood used to craft the pieces is also a large part of the charm. But, there are certain inherent problems associated with wooden products such as splinters, cracking, and rotting. With proper care including a thorough washing at the end of every season and perhaps a new coat of sealer or paint every other year, wooden Adirondack furniture can last for years without problem. However, the truth is that quality-made plastic Adirondack chairs offer several advantages over the original wooden furniture.
Premium plastic Adirondack chairs are typically made from recycled polymers. Not only is this a benefit to the environment, but this tough plastic is in many ways stronger and more durable than woods such as pine or mahogany which tend to crack as they dry out over the years. An additional benefit to being constructed from recycled polymers is the fact that there is no need for yearly maintenance with the possible exception of an annual wash at the end of each season.
There are actually a number of potential threats to traditional wooden Adirondack furniture including corrosion, insect damage, chlorine (for those who keep their furniture on the patio), and perhaps salt water damage if you live near the ocean. With premium plastic Adirondack chairs, however, none of these factors will damage your furniture which makes it more durable than the original.
Finally, another advantage of plastic Adirondack furniture is the fact that the color is uniform throughout the piece. When a wooden chair is nicked or damaged, the blemish is obvious because the area looks new compared to the surrounding wood. With quality-made Adirondack chairs, however, minor damage will not even be noticed because of the uniform color throughout the piece.
