When to Replace Your Wicker Furniture

Wicker furniture

Wicker furniture is a great way to bring a little natural ambiance to your backyard patio. As a material, wicker is classic and attractive but just like others, it can show signs of damage over time. Here are 3 warning signs that it might be time to replace your furniture.

Rot and Fraying

Wicker is made from natural plant fibers, which can be damaged from the harsh elements. When exposed to rain, wicker can rot and lead to the material fraying. Repairs can help restore the furniture, but if there is too much damage, it might be time to consider new wicker furniture. 

Sun Damage

UV rays can also damage wicker patio furniture. Sun exposure can make wicker look discolored, weaken the fibers, and make it brittle over time. While you can find reinforced wicker furniture, it can still break if you don’t take care of it properly.


Wicker also has a tendency to attract small, burrowing animals, especially during the colder months. If you store your wicker furniture for the season, you should definitely check for any signs of animal droppings or fraying caused by chewing.
