Teak is one of the strongest, hardest, and most durable of all timbers. It’s a close-grained hardwood that’s long been valued for its strength and beauty. Teak has a high natural oil and silica content, is impervious to the effects of rain, hot sun, snow, and frost, and is highly resistant to rotting. For these reasons teak has been used by boat builders for centuries.

Teak has primarily been the premium wood of choice for upscale homes and fancy hotels and is now more popularly used for both indoor and outdoor furniture like patio sets, bathroom vanities, shower stools, and so much more.

Even left untreated, teak furniture is probably the most durable garden furniture available on the market today.
