Teak is a close grained hardwood with high natural oil content. It is highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun, rain, frost or snow. These characteristics make it the ideal timber for all outdoor applications. Many other hardwoods are used for outdoor furniture and some are even marketed as ‘teak substitutes’, however, there is no substitute for teak and no other hardwood will perform to the same standard as teak in outdoor conditions.
Only premium grade plantation grown teak is used in Teak4Life Furniture. The features of premium grade teak are consistent grain structure, the absence of knots, splits or cracks. All teak furniture comes in natural smooth finish.
Teak does not require any special maintenance routine. Left outside, the exposed surfaces of the furniture will become a soft silvery grey in color. Besides, weather will cause some surface erosion leading to slight surface roughness, possible mildew and checking. Checking is a natural process that occurs when teak develops small cracks in the end grain. However, this does not affect the durability of teak furniture.
