How To Choose The Best Material For Outdoor Furniture

Choosing the best material for outdoor furniture is a matter of research and education. 
You have to know how materials compare in terms of price, durability, and of course looks.
Outdoor furniture is made from different materials, each one having its own pros and cons.

Cast Aluminum

Cast aluminum patio furniture is a wonderful material because of its lightweight and durable. 
Situations, where you should avoid aluminum patio furniture, is when you live in areas that experience high wind gusts. 
Not to worry if you do, there are ways to keep outdoor furniture from blowing away.
Cast aluminum is a lot stronger than you might think.
Cast aluminum is the best outdoor material for chairs because dining chairs must be moved in and out during seating.
In many cases, aluminum outdoor furniture offers more than enough support. 
Be wary, quality varies among manufacturers so make sure you purchase from a reputable brand. 
You can find out which ones are recommended by reading below. 


Steel is actually iron with carbon mixed in it to add strength and resistance to rust.
Steel is the strongest material by far but it is also the heaviest.
You don’t want to use steel materials for things like dining chairs or side tables that will be moved often.
Also, steel can rust if not properly coated.
Although steel is very strong, there isn’t really a need for this much support. 
For all intents and purposes, aluminum will do just fine unless you plan on furnishing a home for an NFL team with 300 pound guys. 
The others above offer more than enough strength and support without going overboard and costing you more money.
