You may want a darker look for your patio or a lighter look could match better. The best idea is to match the new resin furniture with the other furniture already on the porch. You may also want to match the furniture pieces you buy with the color of your house.

Gaining knowledge of the materials used in resin will help you with maintenance and repair. Resin is made from a special tree sap. It is know to be durable and strong. A mold is typically used to create different shapes and sizes. You will find resin is used to make chairs, tables, benches, desks and many other designs.

We talked a little about maintenance and repair earlier in this article. Properly maintaining your resin furniture is essential. If you do not spend the time to maintain your furniture pieces they will not last as long. Resin furniture can be vulnerable to damage if it has no protection.

These covers will keep your furniture safe from the sun and other potential weather damages. Covers can typically be found anywhere furniture is sold. You can also find them in department stores.

Make it a priority to protect your furniture and it will stay beautiful longer. Plan to follow some of the above tips and you will be able to enjoy your furniture for years to come.

Hi diamonddog35,

Not exactly sure who manufactures it but I believe it is available at JC Penny’s. You may have to wait till next spring to get it though. Hope that helps.

I have one like the white chair too. All the paint has been chipped off so it looks pretty bad now. I should prob repaint it when summer comes.

whats the best time of the year to buy patio stuff?

James said in the article the best time to buy is at the end of the summer. I guess you will have to wait until next year. I think you can still get a good deal with coupons however.
