When it comes to picking a perfect outdoor set, the look is important, but durability is essential. It’s tempting to stop by your local hardware store to pick up an inexpensive outdoor set, but is it worth it? In this week’s Buyers Guide, we will cover the top reasons why it is in your best interest to invest in quality and to justify those high price tags.
You’re not alone when you wonder, ” why would I spend this much on outdoor furniture when I can buy the same thing at Lowes or Home Depot?”. You are right in the fact that you can get similar looking pieces for cheaper- but you are not getting the same thing at all. In fact, you will end up spending more money on the cheap stuff over time, because you will have to replace it- multiple times.
High end outdoor furniture manufactures think of YOU from the very beginning of construction. For this post, we will feature one of Turner’s top selling brands- Summer Classics. Listed below are the reasons why it is priced the way it is, and why you should definitely invest.
1. Cast Aluminum- Superior grade molten aluminum alloy is hand poured into a mold made from exceptionally detailed woodcarvings. Each casting is hand polished to provide a smooth, finished surface for painting. After a multi-step cleaning process, the furniture receives a baked on powder paint coast much thicker and harder than conventional wet paint, followed by a hand-applied antique accent.
This is just the FRAME of the sofa you are looking at in our store. Keep reading to find out what comes next.
2. N-dura Ultra High UV Resistant Resin Wicker- This resin wicker is guaranteed to not experience any significant color change for 5 years. Their ultra realistic resin varies in color and texture, making each piece unique. All N-dura wicker is memory tested to 50,000 compressions, and is hand-woven over steel-reinforced heavy gauge aluminum extrusions with a triple antique hand applied fish using nano-ceramic technology. Unlike wood wicker, this material will stay pliable and not dry out and break.
3. Cushions- Summer classic’s standard cushion is composed of bonded fiber layers on top of polyurethane foam, making them exceptionally comfortable. The ratio of foam to fiber is 50% to 50% once core in inserted into the fabric cushion slip.
Upgrade to their Dream cushion and see the difference! This cushion offers 1.8 density high resilient and California Fire Rated Foam for maximum comfort. Their woven, water-resistant jacket features a “pillow top” of blown-fiber channels providing the utmost quality and softness. Soft, durable, and water-resistant, this is truly the perfect cushion.
4. Fabric- The standard fabric used on all of our products features 100% solution-dyed acrylic. Each fiber is color saturated from the inside out for a rich, fade resistant color thats lasts even in extreme conditions. These fabrics are fade resistant, water resistant, and mold resistant. Clean these fabrics with a mixture of soap and water, or bleach and water and they are good as new.
Upgrade to a rain fabric and be amazed! This fabric is 100% water resistant and dries immediately when blotted with a towel. The water will never permeate your cushions so you can enjoy a comfortable, dry sofa all day long!
Even though we focused on Summer Classics, all of our top selling brands feature similar quality traits and are guaranteed to stand the test of time. You will save money in the long run and be happier with your purchase, we promise!
Just remember, there is a reason our products are priced the way they are. Just like you’ve always heard- ” You get what you pay for!”
