For centuries, people have selected teak furniture because of all of the qualities that are present in this premier wood. Fortunately, there are many kinds of teak furniture that can enhance your outdoor garden – from benches, to dining sets to sofas and more.

Why Choose Teak?

Teak is an extremely dense wood that is recognized for being exceptionally durable and beautiful.  Teak wood also contains high levels of oils and resins which prevents the growth of mold and other fungal growth in the wood. It is also more resistant to moisture than other types of wood. By choosing to add different kinds of teak furniture to your garden, deck or patio, you will be assured that the quality of the furniture is second to none.

This unique combination of high density and high oil content is found in no other wood, making teak the preferred wood for outdoor furnishings.
