Grade-A teak is a stunning material for long-lasting outdoor furniture
There a several grades of teak starting at the top as grade-A teak to the lower level of c-grade teak. The difference in teakwood is that outdoor a-grade teak is pure, very dense in grain, pure honey color with no black veins or holes in the wood. Grade-A teak is from the middle of the bark of the teak tree whereas B and C grades are to the outer edge and the very sappy middle of the teak trunk. Grade-A outdoor teak has the most strength of all grades containing a supply of natural rubber and oil which means the wood and the furniture that is built from it has extra durability and a longer life than lesser grades of teak.
For the outdoor furniture world, grade-A teak is called the prince of all woods because it is most expensive and most stunning. Design Warehouse has a grand collection of outdoor teak furniture in all styles, sizes and shapes.
When caring for grade-A teak furniture, remember to treat it like a car left outside or on your verandah, these need to be washed and cared for often.
A-grade teak will arrive to you with a beautiful honey hue, this is the surface layer of the wood, and after some time outdoors, the patina will fade to a stunning silvery gray color. The wood will remain strong regardless of color change. Should you wish to keep your furniture golden, then you will need to research marine quality teak oils or sealants.
