Caring for Teak

Teak is a natural product which can vary in colour from light to dark brown. When left outdoors any colour variations will gradually even out. Leaving your furniture to weather naturally will allow it to develop a silver-grey patina that will blend beautifully into its surroundings.

One of the attractions of teak outdoor furniture is that it requires very little maintenance. We suggest washing the furniture annually, preferably in the spring on a fair, breezy day, using soapy water to remove any build-up of dirt, bird-droppings and so on. Hose pipes, at normal water pressure, can be used, though we strongly recommend against power or pressure washing.

We strongly advise against the use of teak and other wood oils as these can be detrimental to the health, longevity and appearance of your teak. High-quality grade A teak contains its own natural oils. Teak simply needs to be cleaned periodically, and if you want further protection from the elements you could consider using our range of water-based teak care products.

Teak Weathering

Teak is a tropical hardwood that starts off as a beautiful golden, honey brown colour. As it’s exposed to the elements, over time it will gradually change to a silvery-grey patina. This natural greying and/or weathering may become noticeable after only a few weeks, or it could take several months – it all depends on the environment. Teak’s colour will fade more slowly in drier conditions, and more quickly when subjected to moist climates.

If left untreated, the silvery-grey patina will deteriorate to a dark grey and green. Should you wish to maintain teak’s honey brown colour for longer, we would recommend applying our teak protector.

As well as this colour variation/weathering, surface cracks, also known as checks, can appear on the wood, particularly on heavier components and the end grain. This checking is perfectly natural and will not affect the strength or integrity of your furniture.

Brassware

We recommend that all moving parts are checked for tightness at regular intervals. The process of folding and unfolding chairs for example can, over time, loosen fittings. Please note that brassware will patinate/tarnish in the open air.
