This material has a lot of uses including shelving, storage solutions and furniture. Outdoor furniture is one of the most popular. Where it is used both in plank form such as Ardirock chairs but also rattan wicker chairs.  

Polywood made its debut in 1990, and as part of the Make America Beautiful Campaign being a source of inspiration for the creation the recycled material. 

Since its creation, there have been continual improvements in both the overall quality of the product as well as the design of the products.

If you are looking for a material that is good for the environment, then Polywood is the one for you. Polywood is manufactured from recycled material that in the end can also be recycled. Reducing waste in the landfill both now and in the future.

POLYWOOD The Company 

Polywood was started in Syracuse, Indiana by two high school friends who wanted to do something positive for the earth. By making something beautiful and useful out of waste. the birth of durable outdoor furniture made from recycled plastic.

The first piece of furniture produced was the classic Adirondack chair. Made from HDPE with less maintenance than the traditional wood chair.

Since their humble beginning in 1990 they now recycle millions of plastic containers every year.

Garbage containers are now enjoyed as Adirondack chairs, rocking chairs, benches, gliders, deep seating, dining, and many more outdoor furniture designs.

Striving to keep up with the demand for high-quality material made from recycled material they will be opening a second facility in North Carolina.

This growth and dominance of outdoor furniture has now made them a market leader. To the point where often any HDPE furniture is referred to as Polywood. But only Polywood is Genuine Polywood.

  • The furniture made from recycled material that can be recycled.

Which Company Is Better?

As both companies use Polywood as their main construction material, and both are environmentally friendly as well, are any differences at all between them?

Here are a few other categories and where the brands can be compared to each other so you can see which one may be best for you. 

Delivery Times

Here there is a difference between Breezesta and Polywood.

Short answer, quick ship furniture from Breezesta will be delivered the quickest. But there a few caveat and exceptions.

Let me explain by showing what to expect from each company.

Breezesta Delivery Time.

Breezesta has two buying options.

From their website, you can order quick ship.

“Guaranteed to ship within 48 hours for arrival in approximately one week, if in stock.”

BreezestaOpens in a new tab.

 With limited options but quicker delivery.

For everything else, the full selection, they will refer you to a local dealer. Where every dealer being an independent store you will need to contact your local dealer to find out how soon they can ship your order.

On the other hand.

PolyWood Delivery Time

When ordering directly from Polywood’s website, expect delivery to take between 7 and 9 weeks. But some furniture will require more time, up to 14 to 16 weeks.

If your order includes any longer order items the entire batch will be delayed.

This is largely due to the fact that Polywood doesn’t guess and prebuild furniture.

“Most of our products are made to order”


So whatever you order is not even made yet. This could take a while.

There is a workaround if you want to order online.

You can order through Amazon Polywood Store. Click the link to go to Polywood StoreOpens in a new tab.. Where you can expect the same delivery time as other Amazon products. If you are a Prime member, check the express delivery.

Same as Breezesta, there are local retailers. Who may have in stock furniture which you can pick up today. Or be able to order in quicker than online options.

The advantage of a local retailer is you can sit down and try them out before buying. Knowing before you set it up on your deck, that the Modern Adirondack Chair Opens in a new tab.is the right one for you. Or just click the link and see if the specs are right on Amazon.

Modern Adirondack Chair

So it’s a little bit of a toss-up. Directly from the manufacturer, Breezesta is the way to go for most products. If you like Amazon. Polywood can also be delivered quickly.


Both companies come with significant warranties. Polywood guarantee lasting 20 years and the Breezesta guarantee a lifetime but only 25% after 26 years. As a result, Breezesta is without a doubt the best choice to make if you want a longer warranty.

Interestingly both have a much smaller warranty for the hardware and metal frames

  • Polywood only 5 years
  • Breezesta 20 years

But Breezesta warranty is only against not breaking but only warrantied against rust for 2 years.

So only slightly but Breezesta does offer and longer and better warranty than Polywood. But we are talking the difference of 20 and 25 years. What other furniture are you expecting to last that long?

Product Range 

POLYWOOD provides a broader selection of furniture options than Breezesta does, both in terms of the style of the products and the range of those products. 

Polywood has 27 different collections

If you are the type of person who simply cannot say no to a well-executed design, then picking anything from POLYWOOD will be a lot simpler for you to do. 

This does not mean that Breezesta doesn’t provide a diverse selection of styles or a one-of-a-kind array of products though. They offer a terrific customization tool on their website, which allows you to select the colour and texture of your goods. 

So while POLYWOOD offers you more products, Breezesta offers you more customization. It is up to you to decide which is more important to you. 

The Cost

Prices for the two brands do not differ by a substantial amount from one another.

But with so many collections and options available, it’s hard to make a direct comparison.

Which maybe is the more important question. What style of furniture do you want to buy?

I Breezesta has the look and feel your looking for. That the right one. The same is true with PolyWood. Find the furniture you will enjoy. Then find the money to enjoy it. Better to spend ten extra bucks and enjoy then the reverse.

Summary – Which Brand Is Better?

Both the POLYWOOD and Breezesta brands make excellent eco-friendly products that are high-quality, durable, and nice to look at and use. 

These brands are very similar to each other, with just a few differences between them like warranty, availability and range of products they have on offer.

If you are looking for more customization and a longer warranty, then Breezesta is the best choice for you, but if you want a larger selection of products, then you should choose POLYWOOD. 

No matter what brand you pick, you are guaranteed to get excellent and long-lasting garden furniture.

Furniture with which to enjoy your deck with. Or patio.
