Teak is said to be a perfect material for outdoor applications including garden furniture. This tropical hardwood that is native to the Far East is extremely strong, durable. importantly, it is naturally resistant to outdoor elements including rain, UV light, rapid temperature changes, wood eating insects, etc. If left outdoors year round without any protection, teak garden furniture remains unaffected. This is usually when it comes to the beauty and durability of the wood.
Teak wood is available in three different quality grades which play the key role in outdoor performance and durability. It is therefore highly important to know what is the difference between teak grades and how to distinguish between them.
Grade A Teak
This is the highest quality teak wood referring to timber taken from the center of a fully mature tree. Grade A teak can be recognized by a golden brown color, close grains and a glossy surface. It is high in teak natural oils which play the key role in its outstanding resistance to outdoor elements. Unfortunately, it makes up only about a fifth to one quarter of the log and as a result, it has a high price.
Grade B Teak
This is timber from the outer heartwood section, making up about one fourth to one third of the log. In comparison to grade A teak, grade B teak has a lighter colour, uneven grain and less shine. It contains only traces of teak natural oils. As a result, it is unable to withstand the exposure to the outdoor extremes without protective treatments. But, even then it doesn’t last even close as long as furniture made from the highest quality teak.
Grade C Teak
This is an inferior quality teak wood which refers to timber from the outer sections of a mature log (sapwood) and logs of immature trees. Grade C teak contains virtually no teak natural protective oils. Which also has a very uneven color and is easily damaged because it is very soft. Furniture that is made from grade C teak is even considered unsuitable for indoor use because of its softness. Hence making it highly susceptible to damage. Although it is taken from the very same tree species, grade C teak has no similarity to the highest quality teak. Which is neither in regard to outdoor performance, beauty or durability. Grade C teak garden furniture is relatively inexpensive but it has a very short lifespan even if it is treated with protective coating or periodically oiled.
Please note that grade B and C teak garden furniture is sometimes chemically treated. Which makes it look as if it would be made from the highest quality timber. However, it can be recognized by a darker color but, most people can’t really see the difference between the two. This is unless they are seen next to each other. Hence, If you are after the highest quality teak garden furniture, you are recommended to buy from reputable manufacturers who offer an extensive guarantee on their products.
