Comparisons

Product comparison

Below is a photo comparison of the top 7 competitors who sell similarly made products as ours and the major differences between our products and theirs. We have selected from their product line the product that best matches our best selling Royal Adirondack Chair for comparison purposes. 
 
Though we offer this comparison page as a subjective service, we welcome you to compare for yourself with any of our competitors.  Remember to ask a lot of questions and do read the fine print before making your choice.
We understand that price can always be an important factor.  We believe though, that value & quality, the longevity and how long the product will ultimately last are more important than just price.
If you are a discriminating customer, as we are, then we know you will make the right decision. 


Wood:


Not all woods hold up well in all climates but if you are looking for something cheep that you will be replacing in a year or so just about any material will suffice. If however you are looking for a long term investment into a better Adirondack chair quality then you need to consider the following.


Pine – is fine for short term but is not termite resistant and is prone to water damage, mildew and rotting. To make pine last longer be sure to put a good finish on it including a primer and high UV rating top coat. Pine can last longer than a few years but it requires regular maintenance. This is a cheep wood available anywhere and is most often used in third world made products (Malaysia, China, etc.). Watch out for pressure treated pine as the chemicals used in pressure treating can be harmful to your health.


Cedar – this is the best softwood for longevity as it is naturally impervious to rot and the cedar oils deter insects. Cedar is the choice wood for decks, boardwalks, and such due to its high durability and easy availability in North America as it is a native wood to our country. Marks and blemishes can be easily sanded away and cedar can last many generations. If left unfinished it will eventually turn to a soft silvery grey and in a decade small fissures will show up in the wood surface but they do not compromise the strength or life of the wood. There are many species of cedar but the longest lasting of them is western red cedar.


Teak – this is a very heavy hardwood that can last incredibly long (generations). Its density creates the heavy weight to this wood and like cedar it is naturally impervious to termites. Teak is imported and not a native wood to North America and with its heavy weight and high demand it is incredibly expensive (up to 3 times the price of products made in cedar, up to 6 times the price of products made of pine). Teak is difficult to care for as it does not take a stain well.



We are proud to say that all our products are made by our skilled craftspeople, in our warehouse, here in Ottawa Ontario and we use only the very best materials available.

Most companies who manufacture Adirondack chairs in North America are run by honest and hard working folks just like us, but be aware that of the chairs sold in big box stores,  almost all of these are cheaply made in Indonesia and China with no guarantee of quality.

Some North American companies have even decided to cut cost by outsourcing their production overseas. Some even bring the chairs in bulk then place a bolt package in a shipping box and label it “made in USA or made in Canada”. We know this for a fact as we were approached with this offer and we refused.
Profit is one thing but our integrity and the value of our skilled craftsmen and craftswomen are more important to us.
It may take a bit longer to receive your furniture as we do handcraft each piece individually.  You can be confident in our craftsmanship and our work is unparalleled. The longevity & quality of our products is assured and we guarantee your satisfaction 100%.
