The easy answer to this is………… yes, you can leave your Adirondack furniture outside. All of our Adirondacks are made from poly lumber, a weather-resistant, high-density polyethylene lumber made from recycled materials that are easy to maintain.
Quite a few homeowners will buy metal or plastic outdoor furniture and end up lugging it in or out of storage when the weather gets bad. Poly lumber is a great alternative to these materials because it doesn’t rust or absorb moisture and has higher density to keep it from blowing away with a gust of wind. Unlike cheaper plastic, poly lumber doesn’t get brittle with cold temperatures.
But the bigger question that remains is, should you leave your Adirondacks outside?
If you don’t have the storage space to put away your Adirondack furniture for bad weather, do your best to keep them covered. Although this furniture does not absorb moisture, it’s not good for heavy snow to sit on anything. Even putting them in a gazebo, pergola, or under a tarp can be a vast improvement than leaving them to the elements.
It’s very much like a car. You certainly don’t have to put your car in a garage for the winter, but will it keep the car in better condition for longer? Most likely. These chairs can last a lifetime, and taking care of them will stop them from aging prematurely.
Please note that accessories such as pillows or cushions should be brought in during bad weather. Even all-weather seating add-ons can get serious water damage that could result in mold and discoloration.
