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.

Awesome info! Don’t need to run to the store and buy new give your old stuff a face lift with a few cans of spray paint. Just finished my Grandparents old metal framed chairs (60+ years old). They had MANY layers of paint on them. The sanding was the worst part. But now they are both shiny green and haven’t looked this good in years. Next step is the plastic lawn chairs. They are about 10 years old and need help. But that is just a spray can away. Reduce, reused, recycle!
I love spray paint!! I do wish there were a wider range of colors. I’ve learned to do several very light coats to avoid drips.
The most comfortable type of outdoor chair on the market is the Adirondack chair. Typically built with a backwards sloping seat and back that sits close to the ground. The back and seat are often contoured for additional comfort. Wide arms make it easy to get out of the chair.

Hey Diane! You definitely want them to be smooth and very clean so the paint will stick. I’m not sure sanding plastic is necessary, but giving them a good scrub is a good idea. If they’re wood, then yes, sand them first.
We provide various services including: delivery/setup, shed moves, playset moves, site preparation, etc.
These elements badly alter wood, for example, when water soaks in. The best wood for Adirondack chairs won’t rot, swell, warp or crack after long-term exposure to the elements.
Foldable chairs: This type of chair has hinges that allow you to fold it flat for easy storage, which is great if you don’t have a lot of storage space. They’re often made of wood that can’t be left out in tough weather. Foldable chairs are also more portable if you want to take them camping or on vacation.

The thing we should look at with this Lifetime chair is it’s heavy duty rating. Yea it’s good, but where it lacks is in the market for people above 300 lbs whom need wider seats. The colors are limited and has a smaller warranty from the Manufacturer.
We do not build our chairs with little stick legs or narrow back boards with large gaps between them. We use thick one and a half inch thick boards for the front and back legs which provides more surface area to screw and glue down the seat and arm boards. This makes our chairs tough and sturdy and less likely to split out over time. Now what about the all important Adirondack chair arms? All our original designs feature traditional wide one inch thick arms because simply put they make the classic American iconic chair what it is; without them you would not have that perfect spot to place your drink, plate of food, book or anything else. It is our goal to make our chairs well balanced, eye catching as well as strong and long lasting. No two pieces of wood are exactly the same. This is why it is best for us to assemble our chairs one at a time. Using this type of detailed craftsmanship allows us to make sure that each and every Clarks Original that leaves our shop goes together correctly and is our best. We are very confident that when you get ready to assemble your chair it will go together the way it is suppose too.

We have cheap wood adirondacks from Ho Po that have been repaired, but they were wood. I guess I'm stuck in the middle about those.
