The material used for your patio determines your furniture set's functionality, durability, and longevity. From chaise lounges to patio dining tables and chairs, outdoor furniture must withstand the harsh elements of the outdoors, provide comfort as if you are dining indoors, and look visually appealing from every perspective.
Among all the types of wood, Teak has earned its rightful place as one of the best materials for outdoor use. It is the hardest, most durable, and strongest of the hardwoods, making it the perfect material for outdoor furniture that lasts.
Teak is a preferred material in shipbuilding since the middle ages, it continues to be used today in the construction of ships and high-end yachts and boats. When introduced to the U.S. in the 1950′s, it quickly became a popular choice for outdoor furniture.
If you love to entertain and host gatherings, investing in dining sets made of high-quality Teak must be part of your priority list. Teak outdoor furniture usually is designed with precise and clean lines to showcase its inherent beauty. It is more expensive than most patio furniture made of wood but definitely worth the investment.
Why should you consider buying outdoor furniture made from Teak?
It is weather-resistant, an excellent choice for outdoor use. An outstanding feature of teak outdoor furniture is the ability to withstand all types of weather. It is one of the few kinds of wood containing natural oil that repels water, keeping it from warping, cracking, or becoming brittle. It can withstand all potential harmful elements of being exposed continuously outdoors, including pests.
Outdoor furniture made from Teak needs no paint or varnish. With the wood's high oil content, it will fade to a beautiful even-colored patina, making it even more beautiful as it gets older. Purchasing a dining set for your patio made from Teak may mean you will be able to one day give it to your grandkids, an heirloom quality.

Cleaning Teak Furniture. Use a combination of mild soap, some bleach or vinegar, and water to prevent disinfect and clean teak outdoor furniture. Instead, use a soft plastic brush to scrub. Harder to clean stains will benefit from the use of the teak cleaner.
Always start with the mildest cleaning solution, then apply higher concentrations slowly. When washing teak furniture, start from the bottom and your way up to prevent streak marks from dripping water.
Oiling Teak Furniture. Some people prefer the golden color of teak furniture. Oiling teak furniture is a way to retain and enhance Teak's natural golden-honey patina. Oiling is not a method for protecting the wood.
If you prefer the natural teak color, outdoor teak furniture should be oiled every 2-3 months and take it out of direct sunlight. Apply oil on teak furniture once it's clean.
Cleaning removes natural oil build-up while applying a new layer of oil will restore its Teak's natural character. Apply with a paintbrush.
Suppose you want to explore getting shaded while dining without the center pole of an umbrella, obstructing a portion of the view or a part of your guest's profile. Buy offset outdoor umbrellas, also known as Cantilevers, instead. They are highlighted with an arched or jointed pole positioned off to one side.
