Teak is one of the most durable woods available for decking or exterior furniture. That is why it is commonly used on the finest yachts and homes. Be aware though that it does need to be maintained if you want to keep that deep, rich color and not a dull gray look!
Once Teak gets to a grayed state,the wood will require extensive preparation by pressure washing with oxygen based bleach, sanding, and three coats of Sikkens Cetol or Sikkens SRD. By consistent, yearly re-coating, you will avoid the time consuming preparation and keep your deck or furniture wood looking deep, rich and gorgeous!
