Outdoor furniture is a great way to make relaxing in your yard easy whenever the weather is good. That’s why it is so popular and why patio furniture stores stock so many choices. Buying your new patio furniture is about more than just picking a great look though. You need to consider other ideas, like the space available and how the local weather will impact the materials used in the construction of your furniture.

Important Questions to Ask

Before you head out to the store to pick your patio furniture, here are the questions you should already have answered for yourself. If you are shopping with your spouse or picking out furniture for the whole family, it’s a good idea to work these out together.

  1. How will this material weather in the local climate? Some materials have to be protected from moisture, others do not do well with the cold over the winter. Know your materials when you choose furniture.
  2. Can you easily get replacement parts? If so, how do you obtain them? If you need to touch up paint or replace bolts and other components, you will want to make sure it’s an accessible task.
  3. How long is the warranty for the furniture? What does it cover? How do you get it serviced? Some retailers will be able to act as service centers for the brand. Others will require you to contact the factory, which might not be a big issue if it is local or semi-local.
  4. How easy will it be to put it together? Not everyone has the same level of skill when it comes to items with assembly required, so you will want to know.
  5. Will this still be available if I want to add pieces next year or the year after?
