Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture Deals

Updated on June 17, 2015

Aluminum is truly a great metal that can be molded and shaped to limitless shapes and sizes. If you are in the market for patio furniture and have been considering all of the different types, then hopefully this hub will provide you with some solid information that can help you in your search. This article will look briefly at the different types of patio furniture on the market, a couple of the pros and cons for each, and finally will finish up with some links to some of the best deals for Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture.

Other Types Of Patio Furniture

If you have been looking around for any length of time you have probably found that there are several types of patio furniture available. Some types include wrought iron, teak, acacia wood, wicker, and of course cast aluminum. I'm not here to tell you what is the definitive best type of patio furniture for you, but can just let you know that some types are "fussier" than others.

Wood Type Patio Furniture

Strong and sturdy, wood patio furniture can be a great choice depending on what part of the world you may live in. Certain woods like teak and acacia are very beautiful when finished correctly and can last a long time. The only caution I would give is if you live in an area where weather could come into play. I'm specifically referring to areas of the world that have a "wet season" or a "storm season". Under heavy rains and storms (including snow storms) the wood patio furniture might not hold up for the long term without yearly maintenance. If your manufacturer has a lengthy warranty then that can help, but for the most part after years of weather abuse, you might find yourself sanding, staining and tightening those screws. Teak wood usually requires use of special oils several times a year in order to preserve the look. Any type of wood patio furniture that is not teak might be in danger of rotting after several years. Some wood furniture also requires that it be stored in the winter.

Wicker Patio Furniture

Wicker has a great look and feel to it and can really soften the appearance of a back yard with colored cushions and rounded corners. Unless you can find synthetic wicker that is called all-weather wicker, any wicker patio furniture that you will most likely need to be stored for the winter to avoid breaking or cracking of the wicker material. This is a very popular option due to the light weight which makes the furniture easy to move and rearrange if need be. Most styles of wicker patio furniture are fairly inexpensive without looking cheap and can be a great solution if you are on a budget. Make sure to look for sets that come with cushions. Buying separate cushions can be expensive, sometimes costing more than the patio furniture.

Plastic Furniture

Very inexpensive solution if you aren't going to be spending lots of time outside or any lengthy amount of time in the back yard. If you only need occasional furniture in the back yard for barbecues or what have you, plastic or resin is a good option. They are durable, and are easy to clean. They can have a cheap look though, so if you are looking to impress, then you may want to step it up a little.

Wrought Iron

If durability is your concern, it doesn't get much tougher than wrought Iron. Pretty much the only concern with this type of patio furniture is that it might be vulnerable to rust. Wrought iron furniture is very strong and can hold a lot of weight. Speaking of a lot of weight, this furniture is very, very, very heavy. I would not try moving this patio furniture by myself. Still not a bad choice, and if you can find a good silicone sealant, it should last you for years.

Why Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture Is Best

First of all, the obvious benefit is the quality you can buy of cast aluminum patio furniture for the money. You can find most sets which include a table and four chairs starting at under $700. You can get the same great look and feel you get with the wrought iron furniture, with a lot less weight. Lighter furniture means that it is easier to move around and rearrange in case you are trying to get your patio or garden looking just right. The cast aluminum furniture is going to run you a little more than the other types of furniture, and it just depends on the look you are going for. Aluminum is not subject to rust and extremely strong. It can withstand weather and all the other elements. Just remember that most sets will require you to buy cushions separately also. This can be expensive, but if you find good cushions and take them out of the elements when not in use, they will last you a long time. Remember not to sit on bare aluminum seats in the summer when they have been out in the sun, or OUCH!

Cast Aluminum Patio Furniture Deals

So where can you find the best patio furniture deals? Right off the bat, I can tell you that the best place to spend your money is on the Internet. Most of the time, even with shipping costs, you will save hundreds of dollars over a retailer. Sometimes, depending on the time of year, you might be able to score a free shipping promotion when you spend more than $200. I have had my best luck with prices from one of the biggest websites out there which you can find here, Amazon.com Patio Furniture. You can find great prices on Overstock.com also. I would also recommend finding a patio furniture outlet of some type for the best prices. Any retail shop will mark up their products a ton. One tip I can give you, if you really must have that rich retail look, is to get your set online and go buy your cushions from a retailer. Good luck shopping and get outdoors and enjoy your gardens and patios!

      I have always liked the cast iron ones too. I like the look, and it really adds a nice character to any backyard. And you make a great point, I used to have wicker furniture, and it was so hard to get the covers (http://duckcovers.com) on and off them. But with cast iron, it's a cinch.

      Great hub! I always like cast iron, since it lasts so long and it's easy to throw patio furniture covers over them.
