Polywood Outdoor Furniture Lasts Longer Than Wood

Aug 17, 2007
While keeping plastic milk jugs and other recycled plastics out of landfills is a good thing, having them turned into outdoor furniture and other items is providing a material beneficial to outdoor living. With polywood outdoor furniture material being used on not only furniture, but also on fences and even patio decks, its use keeps expanding.

Basically, the concept of extruding polywood from the pellets of recycled plastics grew to include colors impeded in the materials so that it will never require repainting. It has also found that since its beginning in 1990, polywood outdoor furniture does not fade in the sun nor is it affected by the elements. Being left outside near salt water or in the sun, rain or snow leaves no obvious wear and since it is heavier than regular plastic furniture it is not subject to being blown away by wind.

Tables and chairs as well as garden furnishings are available in polywood, with colors bright enough to make a fun statement on the beach or in subdued wood colors to appeal to the more conservative outdoor living area, polywood outdoor furniture is designed to outlast other materials left exposed to the elements.

Manufactured To Last A Lifetime

From footstools to Adirondack style chairs polywood outdoor furniture is not made to be cheap patio furniture. Its heavy duty construction of materials designed to last several years, puts it into the category of quality outdoor furnishings. The selections of polywood outdoor furniture are available from the company or from selected retail outlets. Pricing reflects the quality and life expectancy built into each piece.

The use of plastic lumber is not limited to polywood outdoor furniture as there are facilities selling what they term plastic lumber to allow people to build patio decks, fencing and other home projects from plastic wood. There are numerous colors available as well as sizes to be able to find what you need for the building project.

Wood grain embossed finishes and wood-toned colors can make the plastic decking look like real lumber and its ability to be cut like wood makes it a great building material for the do-it-yourself outdoor project. You can even get the posts for a railing on your patio in the same colors to match your polywood outdoor furniture collection. Made of plastic with ultraviolet inhibitors built in, can make the deck last as long as the furniture.

Here is a list of places that you can go to find out more about this type of furniture:

1) The internet - one can use a favorite search engine
2) Catalogs - There are many different catalogs with this type of furniture
3) Home and Garden stores - depending on the store, there can be a great selection
4) Home Improvement stores - even though it is usually not their speciality, you can often find a large selection at home improvement stores
