Unfortunately, most chairs that I have seen, utilize the "flipper" behind the back support. Most of these chairs are bolted using one washer, or none, in between the folding parts. Some designs rub on the sides of the main frame support, and over time show scraping marks, and can also bind if folded after moist weather.
While the design of the Adirondack chair hasn’t changed for decades, the materials they’re made of have developed over the years. Finding the right chair made of the right material for your climate may not be the easiest task. .
Poly resin Adirondack chairs have become more and more common over the last few years, and are slowly taking over the Adirondack chair market. The feature set is so strong: maintenance free, color-through material, recycled, eco-friendly structure, and often long warranties make these units very compelling. After much time spent analyzing the Adirondack chair market, we have determined that the best poly resin Adirondack chairs are the Polywood Classic folding Adirondack chairs [Amazon Link] [Wayfair Link].
The most significant aspect of these chairs that send these to the top of our ranking is the 20-year warranty on the furniture pieces. It’s hard to beat such a warranty, and it shows that Polywood really stands behind its products.

"Who needs a cottage when you have Muskoka right in your backyard?! Love my CRP furniture!"
I had no idea that teak furniture could last up to 50 years! That is definitely something that we will have to look into while we are looking for outdoor furniture. We are really excited to pull our patio together so hopefully these tips can help us find the right fit. Thanks for sharing!
Our new fire pit chairs from Dutch Country General Store! Levi, the video on how to install was perfect. The chairs are perfect. The candy was perfect for this little guy who ate them all!
If you’re looking for something durable and low maintenance, recycled plastics are a smart choice, whether it’s C.R. Plastics or Polywood. Both offer excellent warranties, with CR Plastics typically having a 10 year residential warranty and Polywood going a bit further with a 20 year residential warranty. Some recycled plastic products are so durable, they offer limited lifetime warranties.

Thanks for the info and pics! We live on the gulf and are trying to decide on a durable and low maintenance material for the salt air. We are currently looking at C.R Plastics. Do you have any advise or information on C.R. Plastics or on choosing outdoor material for the salt air?
These units can be left outside year round, though Poly Lumber advises that in areas of significant heat (110’+) they are taken in or put in a shaded area. Winter weather is no match for these chairs! However, given that they fold up, you might as well take them inside.

People always confuse synthetic resin wicker furniture with “rattan.” You can learn about the difference between wicker and rattan in my other post. Typically woven in a wicker weave, synthetic resin patio furniture is stylish, low-maintenance, lightweight, and highly durable.
If you have plans of weatherproofing these, it would be best to do it BEFORE assembly. and a light sanding with 120 will even everything nicely.
