Depending on the type of furniture you have out on your patio, some pieces can last well over a decade while others may give out sooner. To figure out if your patio furniture will last a long time, you need to consider build quality, materials, climate, and your maintenance routine. Generally speaking, this is what you can expect from common types of furniture:
Different materials have different lifespans
The material your furniture is made with is extremely important to how long it will last you. Aluminum and wicker furniture can last over 15 years while wrought iron and teakwood furniture can last over 25 years.
Higher-quality furniture lasts longer
While high-quality pieces of furniture are often the more expensive option, they’re also the ones that will last for a longer amount of time. They’ll be able to withstand the elements and everyday wear while still remaining beautiful. Even though you might pay more upfront, the furniture has more value since you’ll have it for longer.
Keep your furniture well-maintained
When you clean and maintain your furniture, you ultimately extend its lifespan. You should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions so you don’t damage your furniture accidentally. While patio furniture was meant to be enjoyed outside, reducing the amount of sun and rain exposure will also increase its lifespan.
