TEAK WOOD ESSENTIALS
When it comes to outdoor furniture, Teak, a tropical hardwood from the Far East, is undeniably an excellent choice for your investment because of its beauty, dense strength & durability, and natural resistance to outdoor elements and insects. Our Grade A Teak is our first choice, and with minimal and simple care it lasts for many decades as it ages naturally and beautifully with its classic and sophisticated patina. If your preference is to maintain the golden brown, that is definitely possible as well.
Why Grade A? Because this highest quality of teak comes from the center of the log (the inner heartwood) of a fully matured tree. It therefore contains a higher level of oils which provide sheen and protection. The grain of the wood is close and uniform, and the color is a honey golden brown. The heartwood only comprises approximately 25% of the tree which explains the reason Grade A teak costs more than lesser grades.
