What To Know Before Purchasing Teak Outdoor Furniture

 

Teak outdoor furniture works out better for outdoor settings because of their gold colour and durability. Their high content of rubber and oil serve as a natural weatherproof and will protect the products against water, rot and insects. This ensures that your teak outdoor furniture will last for years.

Things To Consider Before Purchasing Teak Outdoor Furniture

The Manufacturer

A very important factor to consider when buying teak furniture is the company making the product. Find out whether they have a reputation for producing high quality products, because cheaper products will not give you the value for your money.

Price

Teak furniture is on the higher side of price; so, it is suitable to use them in spaces where you plan to use them for years. If you are a person who likes to redecorate constantly, then teak is not your best option.

Sustainability

The demand for teak furniture has led to deforestation across Asia and this has devastated the ecosystems and contributed to the exploitation of local people. However, today most of the teak used for furniture is grown on plantations that practice sustainable harvesting. Look out for FSC certified teak, which ensures that your furnishings are environmentally friendly.

Finishes and Weathering

There are three options for teak outdoor furniture finishes.

  • Natural/Unfinished: When exposed to elements, teak naturally turns to a silver grey colour. If you prefer this look, you just leave them and they begin to grey within a few months. To ensure that all your unfinished teak outdoor furniture end up the same colour, buy them all at the same time.
  • Sealed: If you like the golden brown colour of your teak furniture, then you can seal them to slow down the weathering process. However, sealing can also wear down; so, before making your purchase ask the vendor about maintenance.
  • Pre-weathered: Pre-weathered teak furniture is a great option if you like their silvery look. The advantage in choosing pre-weathered furniture is that the colour you start with is the colour which stays. This makes it easier to choose the upholstery fabrics and accent pieces.

To Oil or Not To Oil

Some vendors may recommend oiling teak as a preservative to help maintain its colour. But oiling can promote mould and mildew. So, before you decide to oil consider where you are going to place the furniture. If you are placing it in a covered or enclosed area where it will not be exposed to sun, then your furniture will not fade quickly.

However, when placed in full sun, teak weathers. So, it is in your hands to decide between the risk of mould and your desired visual effect. If you decide to oil, do it once or twice a year to preserve the colour.

Cleaning

Teak outdoor furniture needs to be cleaned at least once a year. This helps to remove dirt, dust and stains. You can clean the furniture with a diluted household cleanser and a bristle brush. You can get your vendor’s advice in choosing the detergent based on the finish you have chosen.

When someone spills red wine or a salad dressing on your furniture, you can use a special teak cleanser to remove the stain. Mild sanding may be needed in case of a scratch. In any case, get the manufacturer’s advice before working on the blemish.
