Teak Outdoor Patio Furniture

Cedar is not the only popular wood that is used for outdoor patio furniture. Teak is a very dense and course grained hardwood that is extremely durable. There is a wide range of teak outdoor patio furniture that is available and is made with the utmost care and craftsmanship.

What makes teak outdoor patio furniture so irresistible is the amount of upkeep that it requires. Teak furniture does not need a large amount of special treatment or preservatives to help protect it from the natural elements. If you leave your furniture outside and do not apply any oil to it you will notice that it will turn gray. This may take three months or longer to occur depending on how much sun and rain it has been exposed to.

This gray color will only affect the surface of the teak outdoor patio furniture. You can easily remove it with the use of a poly bristle scrub brush and soapy water. In order to avoid this all you have to do is apply special teak oil to your furniture three times a year. This oil will help the teak outdoor patio furniture to keep its natural look.

The great thing about teak outdoor patio furniture is the variety of styles that you can choose from. You can purchase a simple chaise lounge which you can use to relax in and catch enough sun to get the best tan you have ever had. If you plan on entertaining over the summer than you can choose teak outdoor patio dining furniture.

To go along with your teak patio furniture you can purchase special outdoor patio cushions to help create a comfortable look and feel when relaxing outside. Not all of this type of furniture comes with cushions so you might have to purchase them separately.
