OUTDOOR FURNITURE IS A BIG INVESTMENT, AND THERE'S ONE FACTOR THAT WILL DETERMINE HOW LONG YOUR INVESTMENT WILL LAST: THE MATERIAL THE FURNITURE IS MADE FROM.
Whether it be for furniture or flooring, teak wood has been a preferred solid wood material since many long years. Teak is the hardest, most durable and strongest of the hardwoods, making it the perfect material for outdoor furniture that lasts. Used in shipbuilding since the middle ages, it continues to be used today in the construction of ships and high-end yachts and boats. Now, it quickly became a popular choice for outdoor furniture.
1. TEAK IS WEATHER RESISTANT
An outstanding feature of teak outdoor furniture is the ability to withstand all types of weather. It is one of the few woods in the world containing a natural oil which repels water, keeping it from warping, cracking or becoming brittle. Outdoor furniture made from teak will withstand the harsh effects of hard rains, severe winter snow storms and broiling sun without its strength diminishing.
2. TEAK IS PEST RESISTANT
The same resins and oils that protect against weather, also serve as repellents against insects like termites and marine borers. By choosing outdoor furniture made from teak, you know you wont need to worry about pests.
3. TEAK IS LOW MAINTENANCE
Outdoor furniture made from teak wood needs no paint or varnish. If your desire is to show off it’s natural luster, then It needs to be polished every couple of years to maintain its beauty. There are different kinds of polish available called lacquer, but the easiest way is to use Touch Wood polish from Asian Paints thats specifically made for giving shine to wooden surfaces.
4. TEAK LASTS A LIFETIME
Teak wood is a hardwood obtained from broad leaved deciduous trees, and it is exceptionally strong, not only when compared to softwoods such as Mango wood or Pine wood, but also when compared with most of the other hardwood species of trees. Teak makes for very strong and long-lasting outdoor furniture. Purchasing a piece of outdoor furniture made from teak may mean you will be able to one day give it to your grandkids!
5. TEAK IS BEAUTIFUL AND STAYS BEAUTIFUL
Teak wood has a very attractive looking straight grain pattern coupled with a rich golden-brown colour. In addition to this teak wood furniture also feels great to the touch, when compared with the newer engineered wood alternatives such as Particle boards, MDF and even plywood. In its original state or weathered grey, the natural teak wood complements any outdoor space with class. Further, teak furniture never rusts. Other woods will start to rust and deteriorate when in contact with metal. Teak is one of the few woods which does not rust. Since many pieces of outdoor furniture made from teak wood have metal fittings, this is another amazing quality of this outdoor furniture which keeps it looking good for years to come.
