Whether you are looking for affordable patio furniture or high end patio furniture, you will be able to find outdoor furniture sets made from teak.  Moisture content plays a big role in how good or bad the piece of furniture is that you end up purchasing. It is best to seek teak that is kiln dried with low moisture levels compared to lower quality teak that has much higher water content.  If your furniture set has not been dried properly and still contains excessive amounts of moisture, it is more likely to warp and split over time.  It is one way that manufactures save money and make available cheap patio sets but they will not last in the long run.  Also, low quality teak has only a fraction of the amount of rubber and natural oil which means that the wood is likely to decay and rot within a short period of time. 

Most people prefer the natural color of teak wood.  Unethical manufacturers use a pre-oiled teak to hide the low quality of low grade teak wood.  When you first purchase a new teak patio furniture set, it will be in its natural state. The natural state of teak is a silver grey color and many prefer it this way.  Teak does not need any oiling, staining, painting or lacquering to maintain its durability.  The only maintenance that is recommended for a teak wooden patio furniture set is occasional cleaning.  Other than that, your outdoor patio set is virtually maintenance free and the teak wood makes it one of the finest woods for constructing a gorgeous casual patio set.

Whether you prefer a modern patio furniture set or a more traditional set, teak is a good solution.  Teak is a durable and unique hardwood which requires little or no care.  The next time you go shoppingArticle Submission, be sure to keep these tips in mind.  Spend the extra money to get luxury patio furniture and even consider teak commercial patio furniture.
