A-grade teak is rich in natural oils that repel water and make it virtually immune to rotting. This natural oil content also means there is no specific maintenance required, such as oiling or staining, which is a big plus for people who just want to enjoy their furniture.
A-grade teak also possesses a dense grain structure, which makes it tough and hard-wearing. As it ages, the fine and dense grain also allows the timber to remain smooth to touch (unlike other wood that can become rough over time). The combination of natural oil and hard-wearing properties of teak also makes it resistant to termites and other insects.
Most food stains can be washed or wiped off with a mild soap and water solution. Use a weak solution of bleach, laundry detergent and warm water along with a soft bristled scrubber (such as kitchen/pot scrubber) to stroke in the direction of the grain.
Stains from food oil, red wine, or colourful children’s juice drinks may prove stubborn to remove. Simply leave your outdoor furniture in the full sun to let the sun’s ultraviolet rays bleach any residual stain. If the stain persists, use 150 grit sandpaper to lightly sand the surface of the timber.
Most of our outdoor furniture comes flat packed for easier storage and delivery. However, not all flat packed products require assembly. This is because they are foldable or retractable. Fully assembled pieces.
Almost all of our indoor products come fully assembled, so there is little assembly required. Assembly requirements vary from one product to another; you can contact our store for more details.
