Gardens and porches can be hard on the furniture. Rains, strong sun, bugs and hard use can make your lovely porch swing age quickly. You have two choices: to buy a swing made of some hardwood like a teak patio swing, and pay a pretty penny, or you can buy treated wood porch swings, which will last a long time and will cost a fraction of the one made of hardwood. Treated wood porch swings are normally made of pressure-treated pine, a light soft wood which is made much stronger and weather and insect resistant by chemical treatment. This chemical has been scientifically proven to be healthy for humans and pets alike so no worries as you swing on your new wood front porch swing. You can paint your treated wood porch swing in any color of the rainbow, and you can change its color every time the fashion changes or you want a new look. You will find a treated wood porch swings in any style you like, from ornate and decorative to simple and rustic, and in any size, from small, fit for one person, to large, good for up to three people or a whole bunch of kids.
