Checking - Teak Wood

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.

 

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Sep 9, 2015 We purchased two teak steamer chairs with cushions and find them to be well made and comfortable.  Initially, there were problems with the mechanisms by which the backs are adjusted through levers and ratchets on the arms, but the U.S. supplier provided us with replacement hardware and the mechanisms now are working fine.  A photo of one of the chairs will follow separately.  Thanks, JH.
