Outdoor Furniture That Can Stay OutsideAugust 19, 2020
Whether you live in a climate with rich seasonal variety or one that stays pretty consistent throughout the year, environmental stress can destroy ill-equipped outdoor furniture. Mildew, rust, corrosion, and decay can be cause for concern; however, with the right fabrics, materials, and a few protective measures your patio furniture is prepared for everything from harsh mountain storms to the dry extreme heat of the desert. With over 2 decades of experience of sourcing the most reliable and ethical materials for luxury outdoor furniture, Teak Warehouse is confident in their ability to perform in your exterior space. Let’s take a look at how we use our materials and their performance in various climates.
GRADE-A TEAK WOOD
Grade-a teak wood is commonly referred to as the “Prince of all Woods” due to its high market value and exceptional aesthetic. A pure, dense in grain wood with little to no imperfections expressed in a beautifully toned honey golden color is extracted from the center of the teak trees that’s rich with a natural rubber and oil that distinguishes the a-grade teak from other inferior grades of teak wood. This feature aids in its durability and overall long life expectancy that readily repels water and other environmental wear and tear.
Over time the wood will patina turning to a silvery grey through sun exposure but won’t affect its internal structure. Should you wish to keep your furniture its natural golden tone, then you can apply a sealant to protect the wood. Prior to applying anything to the wood, it is advisable to consult with an expert who is familiar with the process that can assist you in the application.

Aluminum is composed of qualities that makes it a highly sought after material for outdoor furniture. Teak Warehouse finishes all it’s aluminum outdoor furniture with a synthetic powder-coating finish or is laser varnished to keep those qualities in tact. Aluminum is strong but lightweight and naturally resists rust and corrosion. Aluminum pieces tend to be stylistically more contemporary with an industrial appeal that looks refined and well balanced.
