Is a Resin Adirondack Better than a Wooden Adirondack?

Share This Post

Thinking of an Adirondack may conjure the image of a cozy well-weathered piece of wooden furniture, so you may be wondering what the benefits are of choosing an alternative material instead of wood.

We’ve updated the classic Adirondack chair with a sleek silhouette that’s made to last. Keep reading to discover all the reasons opting for our high-quality resin Adirondacks instead of wood will mean more lounging in your life.

Let's Get Technical

High Density Polyethylene (aka HDPE) is the technical name of the resin that is used to craft our outdoor furniture. This highly durable material is fade-resistant for more than 16,000 hours of direct overhead sunlight. This superior weather resistance means you can enjoy years of regular use with minimal maintenance, all without suffering any color loss or experiencing warping or splintering, a common pain point of wooden outdoor furniture.

Is Resin Sustainable?

We take pride in the knowledge that using the highest quality of resin ensures that the products we offer will stay in your backyard and out of landfills for decades. As an added bonus, our materials are recyclable, so if the day ever comes to part with your Adirondack, you can do so in an environmentally friendly way.

The Delight is in the Details

With the goal of creativity and industry innovation, our Adirondacks are designed to have a seamless, high-end look. This means that we are adamant about strategically hiding the hardware on our outdoor pieces while maintaining a high level of durability. This tiny detail makes a huge visual impact (go ahead and try to unsee all the screws and bolts in the run-of-the-mill wood or plastic Adirondack chair).

Thoughtful design means that our outdoor furniture is constructed in a manner to reduce the hardware needed while remaining sturdy enough to withstand 300 pounds. Our Adirondack chairs and Adirondack rockers require 6 stainless steel screws (at most) for assembly so that you can start lounging as quickly as possible.

Variety is the Spice of Life

The name Ledge Lounger may be synonymous with in-pool furniture, but we craft outdoor furniture for making meaningful memories outside of the pool too. We offer several styles of the classic Adirondack with our signature sophistication. Our Legacy Adirondack is a call to traditional charm while our Mainstay Adirondack injects modern sensibilities to any outdoor space. 

Both are available in 15 color options. Unlike wood furniture which relies on paint or stain to provide color variety and weather protection, each individual piece of HDPE is a solid color selection all the way through, so our outdoor furniture won’t fade or peel, and even if it gets scratched, the color and weather resistance will remain intact. Our wood-look resins also have a visible grain from every angle allowing you to enjoy the look of a wooden Adirondack with the long-lasting durability of Ledge Lounger resin.

That was a lot of information for furniture shopping, but don’t sweat it – there won’t be a quiz. Instead, give yourself the gift of worry-free relaxation when you shop Ledge Lounger Adirondacks.
