Most Frequently Asked Questions
Teak is a special wood found in South & Southeast Asia. Teak contains a natural oil which repels water, keeping it from warping, cracking, or rotting. Outdoor furniture made with teak will withstand damage from rain, snow, and sun. Because of these durable properties, teak furniture is commonly found at high-end ski lodges throughout the world.
As a general rule, outdoor teak furniture does not require paint or varnish. Teak’s high natural oil content ensures it has a beautiful, even colour which will stand the test of time. If you would like your outdoor teak furniture to have a reflective sheen, you can apply a natural teak sealer.
Outdoor teak furniture does not require any special maintenance, apart from the occasional cleaning. To clean your teak furniture, we recommend you gently clean it with diluted soft soap.
