Living up north means that your patio furniture is going to have to stand up to some pretty harsh winters. Most outdoor furniture is made to stand up to rain, sun, and wind, and even some snow and ice, but with winters in the north your furniture is going to need to be of the highest quality to stand up to what mother nature throws at us.
So which types of patio furniture stand up best to the elements?
Wrought Iron is a great choice for all weather furniture. It is heavy so it stands up well to windy climates. With occasional cleaning and waxing wrought Iron will also weather rain and snow for many years.
Teak is a great option if you are in the market for wooden furniture that will hold up to the weather. Teak behaves differently than any other wood and has been used in northern climates for many generations. As the wood weathers, it turns a silvery-grey color. The furniture can be left out year round even in wet, snowy climates.
Traditional wicker furniture is beautiful, but not really known for its ability to stand up to harsh conditions. All weather wicker, on the other hand, is made of a resin material that offers a natural looking weave, but can stand up to any weather that Mother Nature throws at it.
Poly or resin furniture is another alternative to wood. It stands up well to the elements and companies, like Seaside Casual, use recycled materials making their patio furniture an eco-friendly option.
