Checking is a term used to describe small cracks that appear on the end grain of the wood. These checking cracks would most likely occur at the ends of the slats, ends of the arms or anywhere where end grain is exposed. This is completely natural and not a cause for concern. These checking cracks will stabilize in the first few weeks of exposure.
We love the teak furniture that we bought last summer for our lake house Thanks again for the great product and service
The quality of these chairs is excellent. I am very happy with my purchase. I did buy a lot of items from Goldenteak and have found their quality and service outstanding. I will definitely recommend them to my friends. JE
