Overall the Lifetime 60064 Poly Resin Adirondack Chairs are solidly made and feel good to sit in.
Love this idea and my chairs look great–except there are chips in the paint after only one week. Did you have this problem? Any ideas of how to keep them from chipping again after I re-paint.
We received our chairs and absolutely love them. Thank you and we will be sure to recommend your company to others.
These units are of similar quality to the Polywood chairs but come in a more muted color palette. They do have one nice extra feature: they recline. The reclining feature comes at a higher cost, though, and when it comes down to it, we prefer the colors available on the Polywood line.
Though a purveyor of the “wilderness cure,” Trudeau himself rarely used the term. “He believed in science,” Catania says, noting that most patients who recovered from TB did so as the result of good nursing. “Being in the fresh air was part of it, but he didn’t claim any magical restorative power in the air.”
Its long, slanted back, wide armrest, and sunken seat allow you to slide into a laid-back position. You can let your body loose because it supports all the right places for maximum relaxation.
“If I were a geneticist, I would say they would be different species of the same family,” says Craig Gilborn, former director at the Adirondack Museum, now known as the Adirondack Experience, in Blue Mountain Lake. Gilborn pointed out the similarity between the cure chair and the Lee-Bunnell “Westport chair” in his book, Adirondack Furniture and the Rustic Tradition.

On the bright side, working with it is such a breeze. It sands, cuts, planes, nails, glues, and screws without too much effort. It is also widely accessible in the US.

Assembly is not terribly difficult, but you should have a drill handy, and an extra set of hands is always helpful. The instructions are decent, but those who are unfamiliar with putting together furniture may have a difficult time.
The price of poly lumber has gone up during the past 5 months due to COVID shortages. Our suppliers have notified us that more price increases are on the way. Please note that during the busy season (March, April, May, June and July) we can only accept a small portion of order requests due to demand that is much higher than we can handle. Consider buying furniture during the Fall and Winter when supply and demand are more balanced.
One thing to love about mahogany is that its growth progresses rapidly, making it sustainable. It is widely distributed, ubiquitous, and versatile.
Polywood’s Adirondack chairs are built using high quality recycled HDPE CPVC wood, which is a mix of recycled wood and resin material. It is eco-friendly!
Each one of these chairs is incredibly stable when you sit on them. They are also very expensive because of how they are usually built regarding their material, sturdiness, and durability.
Epoxy is good (jamie's suggestion) but if the chair is made of ABS plastic (which is a very common type of plastic) then you can "weld" it using pure acetone. Search "welding ABS with acetone" on YouTube for many examples of this.
