The durability and quality of Parker Boyd teak combined with its beautiful aesthetic properties make it an ideal timber for outdoor use. Teak wood has a very high oil content which does not require any oiling to protect or extend its lifespan.
Small surface cracks may appear due to the weather changes and the wood drawing in and releasing moisture. This will not affect the strength and durability of the timber.
COLOUR + WEATHERING

If however you want to maintain the original color we recommend use a teak sealer on a regular basis. To help protect frame any staining we recommend the use of a teak protector which gives you time to clean up
