The high oil content in the wood used in teak furniture allows it to withstand any inclement weather and the effects of decay, insects and bacteria. Neither heat, humidity, snow nor rain will affect your teak outdoor furniture. Our manufacturers use only Grade A plantation grown teak purchased from the government agency that regulates reforestation. If you prefer a more organic look, when left untreated, teak will weather to a fine silvery patina. However, we also carry teak care products that will help maintain the golden color your teak patio furniture had the day you purchased it.
