Choosing the best material for outdoor furniture is a matter of research as well as education.

Wooden garden furniture can suffer through exposure to the elements which need to be periodically treated. Teak is a commonly used material for outdoor furniture as it naturally contains silica, which makes it resistant to fungal decay along with many of the effects of water, such as rot, swelling and warping, as well as chemicals. Teak is also resistant to fire, acid and alkalis.
When Teak weathers off and it loses its original look but gains a majestic as well as almost a silver glow. Many owners prefer the aged or old look of teak and because of its resistance to rotting and infestation. It can be appreciated without upkeep while aluminum garden furniture is robust and long-lasting. However, if the protective coating is compromised then it will corrode. Plastic garden furniture is naturally a waterproofed furniture, so it can be left out year-round even during rainy season. Waterproof outdoor furniture pieces are usually made of materials, for example, Mahogany, Teak, Cast Aluminum, PE Wicker Plastic and PVC Wicker as well as these materials are durable and can withstand the elements of wind, rain and sun exposure.
Wicker outdoor living furniture was originally made up of the stems of any one among all of 600 species of palms found in tropical regions all over the world. The palm stems were tightly woven into interlocking panels that formed into the desired structure. Now, most modern wicker furniture or outdoor furniture is made from synthetic resin which increases the life expectancy and reduces the manufacturing costs.. It can be molded to resemble real wood or wicker as per needs.
