You get what you pay for – The ‘Value Proposition’

What does value mean to you? Is it price, service or convenience? Big Box stores may appear to offer the lowest prices on seemingly the same products as many traditional retail outlets but are you really getting a good deal?

Is price always a determining factor of value? It may look great in the store, but is it exactly what you wanted? That $250 dining set may seem like a good deal until the first rain or windstorm and then you’re fishing pieces out of your neighbor’s tree and wondering how you can get the furniture repaired.

Most Big Box and home improvement centers typically will not accept the merchandise back, leaving you with outdoor furniture that will more than likely last you one to two years due to poor quality, fading of the fabrics and finishes or rusting of the structure.

Big Box stores stock only very limited colors, fabrics and styles. Delivery, setup and disposal of packaging and old furniture are your responsibility as is any warranty claims that may arise. Where is the value proposition in that?

Traditional outdoor retailers offer service on a whole new level. When you shop with us, you get a friendly, knowledgeable staff member who is well versed in the products they sell.

We can offer you virtually endless possibilities of colors, fabrics and styles, all chosen by you. You can sit, touch and probe the merchandise and feel the difference in quality. When it comes to delivery, we offer white glove delivery and setup with trash removal. Your furniture will look just as you designed it and will last for years.

Many of the manufacturers we offer carry the best warranties in the industry, such as a 15 year limited warranty against defects for residential consumers on frames, finishes and vinyl strapping.

With a warranty like this, it is evident that the furniture is designed to stand the test of time, especially in the Southern California area.

Customers have been coming California Patio for over 35 years for a variety of reasons — foremost being the “Value Proposition.” Many of our customers are looking to create that ultimate outdoor sanctuary as an extension of their indoor décor to complement their lifestyles. We offer sound advice, competitive pricing and peace of mind that your furniture will last. We guarantee you will notice the difference and will be happy with your purchases just as many thousands of customers have for over three decades.
