Let’s start with the technical stuff first. Resin is a natural or synthetic compound which begins in a highly viscous state and hardens with treatment.
How does this benefit me as the homeowner that simply wants quality furniture at an affordable price? Allow me to answer. When it comes to sheer weather resistance and an almost relentless durability, resin wicker patio furniture is the one to choose. If you live in an area with extreme weather conditions – think wet winters, the scorching sun, or even the icy cold snow – resin wicker patio furniture is the way to go. Resin has on occasions been referred to as the “all-weather wicker” that simply will not chip, fade away or flake like other patio furniture types.
Best of all – If you’re thinking this durability comes at a price, then think again. Resin wicker is on average less expensive than some other types of garden furniture, and its sturdiness will decrease your need to fork out hundreds of dollars on maintenance costs or even patio furniture covers. The benefits form a cost perspective therefore cannot be overlooked.
The inevitable question is now raised- where is the trade-off? Surely you’re not saying resin wicker is the answer to every homeowner’s problems, needs and wants? By far not! Wicker patio furniture has, like many others, its strengths and weaknesses. I’ll be the first to point them out to you, but won’t dwell on them either – I’m simply to big of a fan.
