Yes you can. Please call ahead for our inventory status of your preferred chairs.
We are a small, family run business with a passion for building the best seats in Muskoka. We cut every board, drill every hole and assemble every chair here in Port Carling. Our chairs are not mass produced and we hope that shows in the quality and craftsmanship of each chair we sell. Although we do carry inventory, quantities are limited.
It's important to know that not all recycled plastic is created equally. There are different qualities of plastic on the market today. We use only high quality recycled material from solid plastics – 1st generation milk jugs. This ensures our chairs stand up better to Mother Nature's elements than those made from a variety of recyclables, which might include soft plastic like shopping bags. As with anything that sits outside under the sun, you can expect a small degree of fading over an extended period of time, but we expect our chairs will be handed down and enjoyed for generations.
This is a matter of personal taste. Some love and appreciate cedar chairs as a work of art, while others prefer the low maintenance of the recycled plastic. You can expect roughly 15 to 20 years of life from your cedar chairs, while recycled plastic will likely live on after you! We do recommend you store your cedar chairs inside over the winter to prolong their life, while recycled plastic chairs can be left outside. If you want the feel of the traditional wood chair paired with the maintenance of the recycled plastic, we'd recommend our 1" recycled plastic chair.
You may leave your cedar chair unfinished and it will achieve a beautiful patina. Or you may opt for us to finish your chair with paint or stain at an additional cost. We will colour match any Benjamin Moore colour. For stain we use Cetol Premium Collection by Sikkens. You can expect 2 – 3 seasons out of your paint finish and 4-6 out of stain. Adding a finish to your cedar chair can extend the life of the chair.
Yes, it can upon request. Every cedar chair kit comes in 7 easy-to-assemble pieces.
Muskoka Chair Company recycled plastic products never need to be stained or painted. While recycled plastic is low maintenance, it's not no maintenance.
To maintain the beauty of your purchase, we have a few recommendations.
- Bio-degradable soap, water and sponge as required will help to keep things clean. We use a mild dish soap for our showroom furniture.
- In extreme situations, use a non abrasive cleaner like a Mr. Clean eraser.
- Do not place hot items directly onto furniture to avoid melting.
- We DO NOT recommend the use of a pressure washer for cleaning. The pressure could be set too high or the nozzle placed too close to cause damage and will remove the surface finish.
- All our plastics are made with a UV inhibitor in the masterbatch to protect your colour. However if you feel you need more protection, 303 Patio Furniture Protectant, is the world's best sunscreen for outdoor furniture, sold at your local hardware store or marina.
- When closing up your cottage for the off season, we recommend you cover your chairs while you are gone.
