Teak is an extremely durable hardwood.
It requires little care and no preservatives or treatment of any
kind to protect it from the elements. Natural teak will
gradually weather to a handsome silver gray color if left outdoors.
You will begin to notice the "graying" after 3 month or so,
depending upon the amount of sun and rain the furniture is subject to.
Total weathering will take about 6 to 9 months. This silvery gray
'patina' which develops over time gives teak furniture a
distinctive appearance. The color resulting from this natural aging
process is considered to be very attractive, and allows teak furniture
to blend in well with many outdoor environments. Teak left in this state
is easily maintained, and needs no treatment whatsoever to
give many years of service. This is about as easy as a maintenance
plan as it is possible to get!
If you wish to maintain the original
tawny color of your furniture, you may consider a light application
of Teak Oil.
If your teak wood products or furniture
is to be used indoors, and away from a lot of natural sunlight,
over a period of time -perhaps six months to a year - the wood will
gradually become a darker shade of brown.
