Essential Considerations When Choosing Teak Outdoor Furniture

At initial glance teak outdoor furniture may look like other favourite outdoor pieces.  But we are here to tell you that teak outdoor furniture is not ordinary; anything but.  If you are sitting on the fence, we are here to tell you more about why it is a good choice.

Indonesia is one of the biggest countries that supplies Teak furniture, since this type of wood is originated from here mostly.  The biggest achievement is it can reach over two hundred feet in height. That equates to a lot of timber from one single tree. The wood is well known to be waterproof and sturdy hence why it is a good choice for outdoor furniture.

It is a special wood, and we can understand why lots of people love it.

Did you know it is long lasting. Teak outdoor furniture will remain in excellent condition for many years to come withstanding all sorts of weather conditions.  You don’t have to worry about covering it or bringing it indoors; it is one of most durable woods that exist.  Teak has been used for over two thousand years and continues to do so.

With its high oil content and its strength this is one of the main reasons the wood is weather resistant.  

If you have done your research, you will know that teak outdoor furniture is more expensive than other types of furniture such as a metal base. But please note that teak wood is naturally beautiful and super durable. And who does not want a beautiful outdoor space.

Teak is naturally golden in colour and as it gets older and receives exposure from the sun it will turn to a silvery colour which is equally beautiful. If you want to keep the golden tone, we recommend you put a simple teak sealer or teak oil to the surface of your teak outdoor furniture. Lots of people fall in love with the silvery tone and keep that.

A simple wash with soapy water will quickly remove any surface dust. 

It does not matter how old the teak wood is it will quickly return back to its original golden colour when it’s turned into weathered gray (silvery patina).You just need to use fine sandpaper to sand off the weathered surface, then wash away the dust with mild soap and cleanse with water, let is air dry.  

As mentioned previously the teak outdoor furniture will start off a golden colour and turn to a silvery complexion after time. The length of time will depend heavily on the levels of sun exposure. It is worth nothing the colour will change quickly if exposed but the wood due to its high oil content will remain water resistant.  The oils within the wood are natural.

As well as weather protection the oils within the wood are fantastic at keeping bugs away. Therefore, enjoy more time outside without worrying about pests in the garden.  

And Teak wood is self-regulating. It will stay cool in the summer months and warm in the colder months. An excellent alternative to other materials such as metal which can get extremely hot in the summer and icy cold in the winter months.
