Teak Furniture - What to Look Out For

by Bharadwaj Satish 21 Apr 2017 0 Comments

Often times, furnishing materials like steel, plastic and even wicker seem to steal the spotlight when it comes to the discussion of which materials may offer the most benefits for your home furnishings.

The simple fact of the matter is that Teak needs to be put at the forefront of any discussion, especially one pertain to outdoor furnishings. Teak itself is a very thick grained type of wood. There are a number of benefits that many people have no idea about, including its ability to repel insects and minimize any damage caused by weather. Teak furniture is the perfect choice if you are looking for a timeless piece that will last you a long time without really required any maintenance or additional costs.

The oil within the wood acts as a natural repellent for all types of insects and is extremely resistant to water damage. In many cases there is not even a need to treat teak with varnish or other oils, as it is chalk full of natural protectors. The wood can resist any damage caused by water, decay, rotting and warping better than most other materials that you will find on the market. Teak is taken from older trees as the teak from younger trees is a little more susceptible to water damage. While younger trees can be treated to be stronger, the older trees provide the best possible damage proof wood with the least amount of added work or treatments.

One of the reasons that people overlook Teak as an option when purchasing furniture is the added expense. The wood needed for teak furniture can only be grown in Southeast Asia so all the materials must be imported as either finished products or as raw materials. There is really no way to grow the tree anywhere else as it needs the hot climate that Southeast Asia offers in able for it to be cultivated properly. While this does add to the overall cost, there are a number of benefits that can be offered that make the price worthwhile. Once you purchase teak furniture, it will be the last time you need to spend any money on the furniture itself.

Teak is an especially long lasting wood that is very hard to damage and can be left out all year round without worrying about the weather. You don't have to add extra water resistant treatment or even perform any real maintenance on your teak furniture whatsoever. You can literally set up your teak furniture outside and just leave it without worrying about weather changes or rushing to move it inside. Other furniture that you may use for outside use would require constant maintenanceFree Reprint Articles, cleaning and recoating of varnish to keep in tact.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
