Chaise lounges can be constructed from a variety of different materials and each has certain advantages. Aluminum is lightweight, durable, and rust-resistant so you can leave it in the rain. Teak is weather resistant as long as you keep the wood oiled to prevent it from weathering. Wicker allows air to flow through. However, the same nooks and crannies collect dirt, which makes it harder to clean. Hardwood has a nice, rich look and is far more durable than softwood because it’s less prone to dents and scratches. Plastic is another option that will stand up to any kind of weather. Plastic lounges can be heavy to move around, however, and plastic can fade over time if left in the sun.
