Teak is a very dense and oily wood. The natural oil present within teak wood offers it protection from pests such as termites. The oil also keeps water from seeping into the wood. This means teak furniture can be left outside and endure years of rain, wind, heat, and cold. If the furniture was skilfully crafted it will last for generations.
Teak wood has a golden honey colour when new, but after time it naturally fades into a light grey patina. This colour change is only cosmetic and does not affect the strength of the wood. But if you prefer the golden colour there are a couple things you can do to slow down the ageing process.
Most teak furniture manufacturers recommend using teak oil – But we definitely do not. The wood’s natural oil is sufficient to protect it from damage. Teak oil is not actually the same as the natural oil found in the teak tree. It is just called “teak oil” for marketing purposes and is actually not good for the integrity of the wood.
We recommend instead to use a treatment with teak sealer such as Semco Teak Sealer if you’d like to maintain the natural honey colour. This is only needed once a year in order to effectively protect teak wood from colour fade. And if later you decide to let the furniture fade naturally to grey, teak sealer treatments can simply be discontinued. After not applying sealer for a while, the wood will simply begin to age as before.
Since teak sealer is more effective at preserving the colour of teak wood, and it only requires a few hours of your time each year to apply, it is recommended over teak oil.
Disclaimer: Teak wood is a natural product and as such furniture pieces will come with cracks, divots and irregularities, this may also include wood inserts and an aged rustic wood finish. The finish of these pieces is considered desirable and part of the look, these irregularities are not a fault but the unique character of each piece. When selecting from this range please ensure that you understand the nature of this piece.
