3 Things to Consider Before Painting or Finishing Your Adirondack Chairs

When it comes to the most comfortable and durable patio or garden furniture around, nothing beats The Best Adirondack Chairs. These chairs let you sit back and relax as you enjoy a mild day or night out in the fresh air. They’re perfect for chatting with friends or family over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, and you don’t have to move them inside every time there’s a threat of rain or snow.

With all that said, while these Adirondack chairs don’t need a lot of the care and maintenance that other outdoor furniture needs, you can still keep your Adirondack chairs looking beautiful for much longer if you periodically give them just a little bit of care and attention. Every now and then, that care will likely include a new finish or a new coat of paint to keep your chairs looking brand new and gorgeous for years to come. But how do you decide on the right finish and/or the right paint?

Consider a few things about your chairs and the climate in your area, and you will be on your way to making the best choice whenever you decide to paint or finish your Best Adirondack Chairs.

Are Your Chairs Often Exposed to Sunlight?

If your Adirondack chairs are in the shade most of the time and/or you live in an area where you generally get more cloudy days than sunny days, you may not have to consider UV protection. However, if your chairs are out in the garden or you get a lot of sun in your area, you may want to choose a finish with UV protection. In fact, you may even want to reapply this finish as often as once a year to keep your chairs beautiful and functional.

Is It Really Humid Where You Live?

Whether you chose finished or unfinished Adirondack chairs, it’s important to understand that wood is very porous and that it is susceptible to mold and mildew. If you live in a really humid climate, we highly recommend going with treated wood for your Best Adirondack chairs, and when you refinish your chairs, make sure that you apply a finish or varnish that is made to inhibit mold and seal wood against moisture.

Will You Be Putting Your Chairs Away for the Winter?

Finally, consider whether or not you’re planning on leaving your chairs out in the garden over he winter months? If you’re still going to use them on the patio or in the garden, there’s no reason to lock them up in the garage or shed for several months, but you may need to make sure that they’re protected against snow and rain. A good coat of finish or paint could be all you need to keep your Adirondack chairs looking amazing for years to come, even when you leave them out in the elements every winter.
