Bought two last week. Build quality is better than reviews I’ve read. Hardware is all stainless / brass. The faux wood is actually quite heavy and seems very sturdy. Two slight problems: one cracked vinyl washer, one slightly misaligned hole on ottoman piece - did not prevent assembly. Assembly instructions were clear and easy. Maybe 10 minutes per chair to assemble. Something like 14-ish screws/bolts to install. Just needed a phillips head screwdriver. I think they’re worth the money.
What is meant by Faux Wood? Solid plastic that won’t rot? I see it is UV resistant but so am I (for 30 minutes). Or some unknown spongy stuff that may last 10 minutes or ten years and requires faith or a roll of the dice?
It’s made of Polystyrene formed to look like wood. It’s UV protected and weather resistant.
I own four and they’re great. Sure they look a little “faux” but there’s no maintenance unlike the wood ones. And they’re just as comfortable as other adorondack chairs.
Only hesitation on these is that Costco was carrying them at maybe half the price in-store. Little pricey here.
Looks like the ones on Costco don’t have the Pullout Ottoman. At least the ones online.
I posted this question during the July 20, 2015, sale of the same chairs: I understand this is a limit 3 website, but who buys only three chairs of any type, but particularly social-setting types like these?
Makes no sense.
Good point. The purchase limit is now 4.
Is this different than Polywood? (POLYWOOD® lumber is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), UV-inhibited pigment systems, foaming compounds, and selected process additives. The HDPE primary raw material is derived from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other HDPE post industrial material.)
These are not Polywood. We have had Polywood events, but they’re very clearly marked as such.
