Why Teak Is the Right Wood for Outdoor Furniture in Cold Climates

When it’s time to choose furniture for your deck and patio, SEAL-A-DECK recommends investing in teak wood furniture. We love all of the benefits that teak wood brings to our New England customers and advocate for this material at every chance. Here are the top reasons why teak is the way to go when looking for outdoor furniture in even the harshest of climates.

Weather Resistant

The best thing about teak wood is that it is truly weather resistant. Teak is a close-grained hardwood with water-repellent natural oils. Even the dense snow and frost that we see in the winter will not harm this wood. Because of its natural effectiveness, SEAL-A-DECK’s preferred outdoor furniture has been and will continue to be teak. We also offer teak furniture restoration and conditioning to give your furniture the little extra care it needs to look beautiful while repelling everything that Mother Nature brings.

Low Maintenance

Teak furniture is also superior to other wood options because you literally do not have to do anything with it to keep it in usable condition. Even if the forecast is projecting feet of snow, you can leave your furniture on your deck or patio for the entirety of the winter. Teak is a preferred option for outdoor furniture because of its weather-resistant woodgrain. You can leave it out on your deck year-round despite snowfall, blaring sun, or below-freezing temperatures. If you want to use your furniture for hosting or just lounging, all you need to do is clear any accumulated debris and it is ready for use. The makeup of this wood makes it the most low maintenance option you can get for your outdoor furniture.

Long Lifespan

Despite being low maintenance, you can expect teak to have a long lifespan. If all you do is purchase it and set it outside, it should last you at least 75 years. This furniture will be a wonderful item to pass down through your family. Also, if you do regular maintenance you have a good chance that it will last well over 75 years. Some people have had teak pieces last well over 100 years without issue. Even though teak may seem like an investment, you will absolutely save money over time since you will not have to make repairs or replacements for the remainder of your life. You and your teak outdoor furniture can grow old together.

Professional Service

Teak furniture can function perfectly with no maintenance, but if it has been a while since it was last oiled, SEAL-A-DECK can help give it an aesthetic boost with professional cleaning and refinishing. Our package includes power washing as a first step, then conditioning and rinsing. Once the wood has dried, we will apply the oil by hand to every inch of your teak furniture. This is guaranteed to leave your teak in its most beautiful natural condition, even in the coldest of climates.
