Do you remember what it was like before there was at least one television in every home? How did we spend our spare time? Let me assist you in remembering the good old days. There were beautiful summer evenings, drinking a glass of iced tea, and swinging on the ever so popular porch swing. Where have those lazy days gone? Why not go back to those lazy days by adding a porch swing to you home? Choose from a variety of great styles.
All porch swing styles can be used outdoors. How do you decide which one suit you? First, let's find out about the beautiful woods that porch swings are offered in. Western Red Cedar is a fine-grain, dimensionally stable wood that is naturally resistant to "Mother Nature". This wood will last forever. Another very popular wood is Alder. This wood usually comes painted with a high-gloss, two-coat, water-based enamel and is a good, sturdy wood. Next, is cypress, which is a lovely and extremely durable wood. This wood will give you many years of use. This is why it's among the most popular choices of wood for outdoor furniture. Mahogany weathers well with only a small amount of shrinkage and checking. It is good to note that the EnviroWood line is a little different than standard wood styles because it needs no waterproofing or staining when used outdoors.
