It’s no secret that we experience some very cold and harsh weather conditions throughout the British wintertime.
If you’ve been wondering whether it’s safe to leave your solid teak furniture out for the entire duration of the winter season, don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
Whether it’s because you’d still like to be able to use your garden or you only have access to limited storage space - we’re here to explain why it’s not a problem to leave your teak garden furniture outside.
Read on to discover why you can leave teak garden furniture outside in the winter...
Is it safe to leave your teak furniture outside for the winter?
The short answer is yes, there is no problem with leaving your solid teak furniture out for the winter season. In fact, one of the main reasons why solid teak garden furniture is so sought after is because it’s perfect for all year round use, and it’ll easily last for decades to come if cared for properly.
We’ll go into more detail in this article, along with providing a few tips on how you can ensure that your solid teak furniture is cared for whilst experiencing the harsh winter elements.
Why it’s safe to leave your solid teak furniture outside in the winter
Of course, we would recommend that you do not leave solid teak garden furniture in a particularly damp area that does not have much exposure to natural light - as this won’t do any type of furniture any good, no matter how high-quality it may be.
However, garden furniture that is made using this particular type of timber is a more trusted material when it comes to maintaining premium quality, simply because it’s naturally resistant to a variety of harmful elements that would cause the average garden furniture set to break and/or succumb to the elements.
Here are the main reasons why solid teak is a trusted garden furniture material that can be used for all year round use:
> High-quality teak wood is renowned for being incredibly strong and durable. In fact, it’s so reliable that it’s also used as a popular option for hardwood flooring.
> Solid teak has a naturally tight wood grain, which not only is a reliable indicator of overall integrity and strength.
> Solid teak has a naturally high oil content. This helps to protect furniture from harmful elements such as UV rays, humidity and heavy downpours.
> Solid teak is one of the strongest hardwoods used to make outdoor furniture.
> Solid teak is naturally water-resistant, fungi-resistant, and insect resistant.
> Solid teak maintains its beauty no matter how many years go by. It has a lovely natural honey golden colour that will last for many years, and if you choose to leave it untreated, furniture made from this timber will turn into a gorgeous silver-tone (if you would prefer to maintain the honey golden colour, you can easily do so with a great solid teak care kit).
