What’s the difference between your patio furniture and theirs?
Q: What is the difference between Florida Patio and the other guys?
Jimmy Stewart: Well, here is a popular brand of furniture you can buy at any of your “Mass Market” stores. It’s imported from China. It’s steel, you can tell by the rust in it. Then it uses plastic components. Not all aluminum components like we make our furniture. There are steel nuts and bolts instead of stainless steel nuts and bolts like we use. It’s thinner a little smaller, a little shorter, everything they can do to hike up price. I imagine to make it easier for shipping. And it just doesn’t hold up well! The customer sent this in to us to fix it. She bought it less than a year ago. Unfortunately I had to adviser her.it’s really not worth fixing. She decided to buy some furniture that would last many, many years from us. Instead of them using solid construction it’s so much easier for them to do it piece by piece. Which, that way they can store it and ship it over here. But what it doesit causes the frame to be completely sub standard than if it were one long piece. Here is one of the Chaises that we make. Every thing is solid construction. There is no break. It’s one solid long piece. It’s powder coated. The only thing on this chair that isn’t aluminum. Is the stainless steel nuts and bolts. And the nylon end glides.so it doesn’t hurt the patio deck. These can be replaced every three or four years to keep your deck nice!
