Grab Your Adirondack Chair Because Summer is almost Here. If you have not gotten one yet, then have no fear because i am here to give you the most comprehensive guide on how you can find and select the best adirondack chairs for 2017 in the market.
Just a few months ago, i had no idea what an adirondack chair was. I had seen it before in various forms at the beach but i had no idea that was its name. So you can imagine the shock on my face when i came across a website talking about it and saw what it was in the images. When i first heard of the name, i thought that it was some type of spaceship : )
However after i saw what it was, i decided to keep my ignorance to myself the next time someone asks me something. Since i am a diy person myself and like to see what i can build using my bare hands and some materials, i then went down deep to see how it is made and what type of accessories it comes with.
Here is what i found out from a wide variety of sources.
There are 3 main types of adirondack chairs widely available in the market;
- The first type is the wooden one that is made from wood material. It is made out of stained wood. for those who are not into diy, stained wood is when the chair has some unfinished look as you can see in the image below.
This is good for those people who want a rugged look or some sort of matte finish. The main advantage of this type is that it has a much softer density and much cheaper for those of you who want to purchase the finished product.
Its main disadvantage is that since the type of raw material used here is unfinished, therefore it is much less resistant to harsh weather conditions like extreme sunshine and rain. This has made the retailers both online and offline who stock it to give it very limited warranties.
- The second type of chair is the one that is made from medium density wooden material. This is a bit heavier of course and can bear much heavier weights than the previous one. I also like the various designs that it comes with as a result of being made from much denser wood.
This is a spectacular choice for a person who likes a wide variety of designs and enjoys having such type of seats as part of the aesthetic features of a patio or garden. It is also pressure treated and painted which makes it much more weather resistant than the one above. This makes it one of the best choices for outdoor spaces that experience a lot of rainfall and sunshine.
- The third and final type of adirondack chair that i will be covering today is the one made from high density hardwoods and also recycled plastics. This is the premium choice for someone who wants to spend a lot of time outdoors with it under very harsh conditions.
What i like about it most is that it comes with materials that are pressure treated and protected against ultraviolet rays. This means that you can leave it outdoors for a very long time before it starts to fade away or depreciate in quality. This gives it the best warranty from all the other two. I prefer it in red by the way.
