Our outdoor teak furniture is manufactured to the highest standards and is equal to the best in the world. We manufacture our collection using premium grade teak from government - controlled plantations on the island of Java, Indonesia.
The process of weathering is brought about by the action of the sun breaking down tannins in the wood which hold the colour, and then the leaching out of these colours by the rain. Unlike some other timbers, our teak will not stain your decking or tiles during this process. It will take about twelve months to attain a beautiful silver grey weathered appearance. Rotate your furniture or move it around during this time to result in more even weathering. Leave extension tables fully extended as much as possible during the first twelve months to ensure even colouring of all surfaces.
The job of cleaning is best tackled when the furniture is very wet – preferably after a night’s rain. Warm soapy water and a soft bristled scrubbing brush or scotchbrite pad will remove most mottled, patchy environmental and man made stains.
The runners of the extension leaves need cleaning regularly to remove accumulated grime. Open the table and use a normal hose with the nozzle on high pressure to clean table frame and rails on the extension leaves. Use a brush to remove difficult built up grime. Following cleaning and extended periods of rain, the timber may swell and it could be difficult to move the extension leaves. This is normal and upon drying they will move freely again.
There are a number of products available which will help retain the colour of new outdoor teak furniture and prevent the greying process.
If you decide that the weathered look is no longer appropriate it is possible to remove the grey weathered surface completely.
We offer a five-year warranty for all our outdoor teak furniture and three-years for outdoor wicker provided the furniture has been reasonably cared for and maintained. Should a problem arise during this warranty period, we reserve the right to repair or replace the item at our discretion.
We recommend using Feast Watson Outdoor furniture Oil - Teak.
