Teak is an oily dense wood that combines function, beauty and quality and is great for outdoor furniture because ...
a) Teak wood's density of grain prevents it from splintering. Hence its use on ships decks in days gone by, and in swimming platforms, rails etc in today's pleasure boats.
b) Teak furniture's natural oils resist rot and decay. Please see below an example of a weathered bench in service for 20+ years as outdoor furniture. One may keep the Golden appearance of new teak patio furniture by oiling the teak every year, or let it weather to a silvery grey finish.
c) Teak is naturally resistant to Salt Water and Salt Spray. Hence its use near sea coasts. No rust, no corrosion. As the examples in pictures below indicate.
Below is a picture of the Charles W. Morgan, now safely kept as a historic landmark at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. Note that the ship was made in New Bedford, MA - one of the harshest environments (snow, salt, cold, whale blubber and oil.)

Hello. I love the teak chaise lounges and my new cushions! We are building a deck which I plan to showcase these and enjoy them even more with the cooler weather. Customer service was wonderful when I needed a replacement bolt. Great customer service and quality product. Mary S. (Teak Chaise Lounge Sun Lounger with Cushion) See Photo Here
I wanted to thank Golden Teak for the great service, high quality product, and reasonable price for my new teak garden bench. The pieces fit together like a dream and my husband and I will have many hours of enjoyment from the bench. I took a level out to place it in my yard and after I set the bench down I checked the level in front and back of the seat. It was like the bench was meant to be in that spot as both sides were perfectly level. Thanks for adding a wonderful piece of furniture to my southern garden.
