Many popular, plastic outdoor furniture pieces are made from recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE/RIC #2). Though recycled HDPE may not be represented by a number, you might be able to tell a piece of outdoor furniture is made with recycled HDPE by the way it looks: It often has a vague wood-grain texture, but is shinier than untreated wood. Many current styles of Adirondack chairs are made with recycled HDPE. .
Teak: Teak is one of the most durable hardwoods on the market. A special oil found in the heartwood gives it the strength and durability to last a good 60 to 70 years. Even in weather conditions that swing from hot to cold and wet to dry, teak won’t split, rot, or crack. You will need to apply a sealant each year, but that’s it for upkeep. This popular wood comes at a high price, but you can leave it outside for years, and it will still provide a beautiful, relaxing surface on which to sit.

I’ve tried rinsing them, and scrubbing them, but it just seemed to make them worse, and I’d get less dirty sitting on the ground…which sorta defeats the purpose of a chair right? But I am just not okay with getting rid of them before I try to fix them and I am so glad I did!
I just wanted to say thanks for putting together such a sweet deal on the chairs, they are great. I’ve already told a few friends and neighbors about your site so hopefully you’ll get some more business soon. Have a great weekend.

If you are in the market for the best overall plastic Adirondack chair, then the Highwood AD-CHL1-NBE should be your first choice. This chair is very lightweight while still having a very high weight capacity. It also comes in a wide variety of colors and has incredibly durable hardware. We highly recommend that you look into this model!
Note: Please don't forget to buy pillows and cup holders when you are here to pick up your furniture since we don't ship them.
“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.
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.
Overall I can’t really fault this chair, maybe the assembly could be easier but that’s not a big deal either. It’s oversized and very heavy duty which is what us plus size people need in an Adirondack chair. Also comes in a nice natural selection of colors, Weathered Acorn being our best pick.
These are awesome! I love that you used a pattern for the pieces. I have no doubt your entire family will enjoy the nice weather…when it finally arrives, in your new chairs! Pinned!

Treating the wood could be an option if you opt for species without natural termite repellent secretions. But for anyone who prefers chemical-free wooden furniture, go with wood that has oils and sap that naturally stave off insects.
