Outdoor Living with POLYWOOD Furniture

Outdoor Living with POLYWOOD Furniture
March 9, 2022

Thinking 2022 is the year to refresh the furniture in your outdoor living space? POLYWOOD is the perfect solution! POLYWOOD furniture is made from genuine POLYWOOD lumber, a proprietary material sourced from recycled plastics. These recycled plastics are turned into a high-density polyethylene composite (HDPE)—a common alternative to real lumber—which is then used to create these beautiful, one-of-a-kind outdoor furniture pieces.

Unlike many other options on the market, POLYWOOD furniture won't splinter, crack, chip, peel, rot, or fade. This doesn't just mean that you'll no longer have to worry about replacing your outdoor furniture every couple of years (or possibly ever again), it also means you won't have to make room in your shed to store it during the winter months or inclement weather. The best part is that each piece comes with a 20-year warranty, so you can literally just sit back and relax!

While POLYWOOD is a higher-cost option when it comes to outdoor furniture, it's an investment you won't regret making. Not only are you getting durable, eco-friendly furniture, you're also getting low-maintenance, weather-proof pieces that are guaranteed to stand the test of time.

Why Choose POLYWOOD

Sustainable

POLYWOOD recycles an average of 400,000 landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastic containers every day to create genuine POLYWOOD lumber which is then used to make each piece of furniture. When you purchase POLYWOOD, you're helping to make an impact on the environment.

20-Year Warranty

POLYWOOD heavy-duty furniture won't splinter, crack, chip, peel, or rot, and its proprietary lumber is backed by a 20-year warranty. When you purchase POLYWOOD, you no longer have to worry about replacing your outdoor furniture again. 

Weatherproof

POLYWOOD all-weather furniture is built to handle the harshest conditions—from hot sun and salt spray to heavy winds and blizzards. When you purchase POLYWOOD, you no longer have to worry about covering or moving your outdoor furniture in inclement weather. 

Color-Stay Technology

POLYWOOD lumber is made with UV inhibitors, stabilizers, and light stable pigments to protect it from environmental degradation caused by the sun's rays. When you purchase POLYWOOD, you can expect your furniture to be the same rich color 15 years later—with zero fading.

FAQs

What is POLYWOOD?

POLYWOOD is a low-maintenance, proprietary plastic-based alternative to real lumber that's made from recycled plastics. 

What is HDPE?

HDPE stands for High-Density Polyethylene, which is an exceptionally durable plastic that has infinite recyclability. Genuine POLYWOOD lumber is made from HDPE.

Does POLYWOOD contain wood or natural fibers?

Because genuine POLYWOOD lumber is made from HDPE, it does not contain wood or natural fibers. This means you don't have to worry about it splintering, chipping, or rotting.

Does the color of POLYWOOD lumber run all the way through the material?

Yes, light-stable pigments along with UV inhibitors and stabilizers run continuously throughout the material and protect the lumber from harmful environmental degradation.

Will the color of my POLYWOOD furniture fade?

Genuine POLYWOOD lumber contains UV-inhibiting pigment systems that limit fading.

Can I paint my POLYWOOD furniture?

POLYWOOD lumber colors run continuously throughout the material, so no painting or staining is required. Painting or staining your POLYWOOD furniture is not recommended because it will void the warranty.

Can POLYWOOD material be sanded?

POLYWOOD lumber should not be sanded as it will scratch the surface of the material and void the warranty.

Is assembly required with POLYWOOD furniture?

POLYWOOD furniture is designed to require minimal assembly, with some pieces unfolding right out of the box and not requiring any assembly at all. Those that do require assembly often take less than 30 minutes to complete and include basic tools with simple instructions.

What type of hardware is used in POLYWOOD furniture?

POLYWOOD uses high-performance, marine-grade quality stainless steel hardware for the construction and assembly of all POLYWOOD furniture.

What are POLYWOOD cushions made from?

POLYWOOD cushions are made from Sunbrella, a quick-drying, high-performance fabric that resists weather, sun, salt, mold, and mildew.

How do I clean POLYWOOD furniture?

For simple cleaning, a soft rag with soap and warm water will do the job. For stronger cleaning action, simply mix one-part bleach and two-parts water, then apply the solution to the furniture with a clean cloth. You can allow it to sit on the lumber for a few minutes as it will not affect the color. Use a soft-bristle brush to get into creases and smaller areas. 

Can a pressure washer be used on POLYWOOD furniture?

A pressure washer may be used for regular cleaning or maintenance on your POLYWOOD furniture, but pressure should not exceed 1500 psi (the equivalent of a car wash). Otherwise, soap, water, and a soft-bristle brush are usually sufficient in cleaning this low-maintenance furniture.

Can I keep my POLYWOOD furniture out all year-round?

Yes, POLYWOOD furniture is made from an all-weather material that's built to withstand all four seasons and a range of climates including hot sun, snowy winters, salt spray, and heavy winds. 

Should I cover my POLYWOOD furniture?

POLYWOOD furniture does not require a cover due to its all-weather characteristics. However, covering your POLYWOOD furniture will make seasonal cleaning easier as well as prolong the life of your furniture.

How much do POLYWOOD chairs weigh?

The weight of each POLYWOOD chair varies based on the size and shape, but they average about 30-50 pounds each. Every piece can be easily moved with 1-2 people, yet they're heavy-duty and durable enough so you won't have to worry about them blowing away in strong winds.

What is the weight capacity of POLYWOOD chairs?

Each product is run through a variety of tests to comply with ASTM standards. POLYWOOD chairs are weight-tested up to 400lbs, but many products (such as settees or sofas) can withstand much more.

Does POLYWOOD furniture have a warranty?

Yes, POLYWOOD has a 20-year residential warranty and a 1-year commercial warranty.
