Teak Patio Furniture ~ the American Classic style

Teak Patio FurnitureAll Classic Teak quality teakwood products are manufactured from Java teakwood specially selected from reserved production forests, carefully managed by the government forestry agency.

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-gray patina which distinguishes finely aged, outdoor teak. After a while this silver-gray patina deteriorates to a dark-gray and greenish look if it remains untreated.

Teak furniture, when left bare and unsanded, will fade to a natural silver-gray color. This color transformation does not affect the durability of the teak patio 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 oil may 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 , it simply maintains the golden brown color.
