Teak is a tropical hardwood with a beautiful golden /honey brown color when it is new. Over time, as natural teak is exposed to the elements, it gradually changes color from the honey color of new teak to a silver-grey patina which distinguishes finely aged, outdoor teak. After a while this silver-grey patina deteriorates to a dark-grey and greenish look if it remains untreated.
Teak furniture, when left bare and un-sanded, will fade to a natural silver-grey color. This color transformation does not affect the durability of the teak furniture or the wood itself.
To maintain the smooth finish and golden brown color, you will need to sand your teak furniture regularly. To prolong the period of time needed between sandings, teak
can also be applied.
If you choose to apply teak oil, apply every 3 months, or follow the teak oil container instructions. If you choose to maintain the smooth brown finish of your new teak furniture, this method requires some maintenance for upkeep, such as sanding and reapplication of teak oil. Teak oil does not prolong the life of teak but simply maintains the golden brown color.
Please note, once you stain your teak, you cannot return to the natural golden brown or silver-grey color without numerous sandings. Stain is intended to be permanent. If you choose to stain your furniture after it has turned silver-grey, you must first sand it before applying stain.
Do not leave teak furniture in puddles of water or on wet ground.
Cover your teak furniture during winter months or move it into covered area.
Teak is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood. It contains high levels of resinous oils that allows it to be naturally resistant to moisture, repellent to insects and impervious to the drying effects of weather. Teak also contains silica, a sand-like component which creates a density in the wood that allows it to be resistant to fungal decay, water, rotting, warping, shrinking, swelling and many damaging chemicals. It will not rust or corrode metals it comes in contact with and it can withstand the elements of all seasons, with its beauty increasing with its age. No other wood compares to teak regarding its durability, elegance, stability and low maintenance; making it the ultimate choice of material for furniture construction and ship building worldwide.
The characteristics about teak outdoor furniture:
1. Teak has a big concentration of oils and minerals, causing the wood to be waxy and flexible. This makes a wood that is water resistant and insect resistant, as well as a strong, straight grain to resist bending.
2. It is one of the hardest, strongest and most durable of all timbers, highly resistant to any rotting and almost impervious to the effects of hot sun, rain, frost or snow. These characteristics combine to make it the ideal timber for all outdoor applications. Teak is extremely dense-grained and highly resistant to decay, warping, shrinkage and swelling. These characteristics make teak furniture extremely durable.
3. Teak wood ages gracefully, If left to the elements, teak develops a silver grayish coloring which, over time can be left as is or revived to its original patina by light sanding and the application of a little teak oil.
