Garrett Wallace, executive vice president at Yard Art Patio and Fireplace in Irving, Texas, agreed that the uniqueness of metal products has helped boost sales. He also noted, as did many others, that “fire pits are fantastic” and continue to sell well.

Aluminum products, especially groups from Tropitone, are among the best-sellers at Bay Breeze Patio in Destin, Fla., said Susan Kiley, owner. She also noted that sales of composite Adirondack chairs are growing in her area. “They are low maintenance, and people with second homes especially are looking for that.”
