While acacia is very durable, it is not suitable for outdoor use unless treated and sealed. Without a protective sealing finish, it is prone to drying out, becoming brittle, and crumbling under pressure. Acacia will also fade and warp with excessive heat and humidity.
Hi Gina. I just used a kitchen sponge with a rough side. Not all of the chalky stuff came off, but they were better than when I started. The paint did just fine without getting all of the chalky stuff off first. I have exactly the same chairs with the same horrible chalky residue on them. Did you have to remove the chalky substance before painting? I went to Home Depot to buy my paint (ironically Satin Lagoon and a Satin Eden). The guy there told me to use TSP and steel wool to scrub off the white chalky residue, then dry then paint 2 coats. So far I have only scrubbed 1 chair (I have 4 lol) and it was exhausting. Just wondering if you scrubbed that off first or am I wasting my time. My friends think I am crazy to waste so much time painting 17.00 chairs lol. .
One of the biggest reasons that some folks are unsure of whether wood or plastic is the best material for Adirondack chairs is because they are worried about the capacity. Thankfully, even though plastic is a whole lot lighter than wood, the people using the chairs don’t need to be. For instance, the Highwood AD-CHL1-NBE has a capacity of 400 lbs. This should be more than enough for most sitters. The lowest capacity of the chairs on our list is PolyTEAK Classic Folding Poly Adirondack Chair, and even that has a capacity of 300 lbs.
Our customers often drive several hours to save money on poly outdoor furniture. Folks often express concern, over the phone, that something must be wrong with the furniture seen on this website since the prices are so much lower than poly outdoor furniture sold elsewhere. It is quite common that after our customers see the furniture in person, they load up as many pieces as they can fit in their vehicles. This customer called from New Jersey to reserve maybe a porch swing and maybe some folding Adirondack chairs if they liked the furniture after seeing it in person. They ended up buying 8 folding Adirondack chairs, 1 porch swing, 6 Adirondack footrests, 4 accent tables and 4 bent poly rocking chairs. I think it's fair to say they liked what they saw when they got here!

Hmmmm…. mine didn’t chip. Make sure you clean them really well and you may want to use a primer this time around just to be sure. Sorry to hear you had some trouble. That can be frustrating.
It is resistant to insect infestation and rot and is watertight pored. With a fire retardant grading the same as that of steel, ipe will not deteriorate quickly, even with no finish or treatments.

Received the 2 chairs, foot stools and table combo and set them up at my Florida home down next to Dan’s Creek and I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! I’ve referred several friends and family members about the looks and quality of your product. Thank you!!
What an awesome project! Great tips for making these chairs. I love how they turned out.
While the dimensions of the whole chair will play a big part in choosing where you will actually use it, the folded dimensions should also be taken into account. The size of the folded chair will let you know where you can store it during the winter months when it is not in use. Even though all of the chairs that fold will get a lot smaller, the PolyTEAK Classic Folding Poly Adirondack Chair is going to be your best option if your storage space is limited.

The bolts are colored the same as the chair for a clean look. No shiny metals getting in the way of the fun colors in the Polywood line!
