Porch gliders on sale are not some last-season damaged goods, but come in a large variety of materials, from luxurious cedar to gliders made of metal frame with thick, plush cushions. You might prefer to get a double glider, perfect for snuggling with the love of your life, or a single one (or two) for those quiet moment of relaxation. When choosing a patio glider, make sure that all moving parts are made of high quality steel. Keep those parts regularly oiled, they are the first to show signs of wear and tear. If you are looking for a patio glider for an open porch, make sure that your glider is made of all weather wood that will not suffer from summer rains, humidity or stains.
