HDPE wood furniture is waterproof

It's very important for your outdoor furniture to be waterproof, or the rain and sprinklers can cause it great damage and lead to the need for constant repairing or replacement. With HDPE furniture, you can count on it to be waterproof in a way that helps it to stay in good condition for a long time. Where wood furniture can eventually end up swelling or rotting, HDPE furniture will be just fine. 

HDPE wood furniture handles the sun well

When you have outdoor furniture, it may be exposed to a lot of direct sunlight depending on where it sits. While wood outdoor furniture can last a while, it will eventually become sun bleached and become weaker. This can cause it to splinter, crack, and break. On the other hand, HDPE wood furniture can sit out in direct sunlight without these concerns of splintering, cracking, and breaking. Also, it isn't known for becoming sun bleached the way that real wood furniture can.  

HDPE furniture is very comfortable

While a lot of wood furniture is comfortable, some of it can feel very hard to sit on and it can get quite hot when it is in the sunlight. HDPE wood furniture is very comfortable by design and it generally doesn't feel as hot as some of the true wood furniture when in the sun. 

HDPE wood furniture can look great

Just as with real wood furniture, HDPE wood furniture can look great. It can come in a variety of colors and it can also have other materials included in its design to give you the specific look that you want to have for your patio or yard. For example, you can have HDPE wood furniture that includes a table with an HDPE wood frame and a glass surface. Or, you can have HDPE wood furniture that includes the look of wrought iron elements.
