Will POLYWOOD lumber get too hot to sit on in the sun? Which colors hold the least heat?
Our darker lumber colors will retain more heat than our lighter lumber colors when in direct sunlight. This is the nature of recycled plastic material. Our general rule is that if it's nice enough to sit outside and enjoy the day, the furniture should be fine to use.
We also offer cushions and umbrellas to pair with our furniture to help protect against the sun.
Although POLYWOOD doesn't sell furniture covers directly, you can purchase covers from retailers such as Coverstore. To find the cover that fits your furniture best, you only need the product’s dimensions.
