Why Buy Teak? Not only is teak perfect for every outdoor lifestyle, the material is a dense, close-grained hardwood high in natural oils and rubber. This gives teak strength and durability, making it virtually impervious to the effects of rain, salt, sun or snow and hence very resistant to rotting. After all, Sunseeker and Princess Yachts actually purchase their decking material from the same source as Godfrey Teak.
Will Teak Furniture Maintain Its Color? Left untreated and exposed to direct sunlight, teak will weather to a beautiful silver grey patina and darken slightly if kept indoors. Should you wish to maintain its color, we would recommend purchasing your furniture with the protective finish option. Yearly application of our protective finish will allow the color to maintain for generations.
Can I Keep My Furniture Outside All Year? Yes, the properties of teak enable it to withstand the harshest of weather – hence its use as decking on ships. If you do wish to store your furniture, we recommend an outhouse, garage or garden shed. However, please ensure that there is not an extreme change in the heat and humidity of the environment as this can cause your furniture to crack.
