There's a reason teak patio furniture is so popular. Anyone who has lugged patio furniture into storage, purchased expensive "winter slip covers", or just left the furniture outside only to discover that it was ruined after two seasons of use, can appreciate the easy maintenance of teak patio furniture.
If you wish to preserve the Golden color of teak, you may apply Teak oil to the product once or twice a year (when you notice fading). If you do not apply any teak oil the wood will bleach to a silvery color as seen below.

10/27/2015 - Dear Goldenteak: The pair of rockers arrived strapped on a pallet but the truck driver very kindly managed to get the whole thing to my front door via my horseshoe gravel drive on his movable lift! Dismantling all the pieces of the shipment and getting them to the assembly area was easier than I thought it would be for this 66 year old woman and her trusty dolly. Anyway, the real joy was how easily the chair assembly was. I had them assembled in no time and was rocking away on my covered porch within a couple of hours.
I finally have a comfy and sunless spot (at least most of the day as you will see from the photos) to read and look over the desert without constantly dealing with our brutal sun. Thanks to Goldenteak for yet another fine product.
I am now wishing I had bought a small teak table to place between the two rockers for drinking glasses, to put down your book, etc... Thanks again. JJT, Tuscon, AZ (Teak Carolina Rocker TCR from Goldenteak) See Customer Photo Here
This corner unit is very comfortable, especially with the center pillow. I got the corner with one on each side, and the configuration is excellent with a coffee table. Oh, and the teak and construction are certainly excellent.
