What You Need to Know About Teak Wood
Teak is one of the most recognized of all hardwoods, known for its durability and water resistance. The wood has a high oil and rubber content so that it is resistant to decay.
It has origins in Africa, Asia and Latin America with Indonesia being one of the largest exporters of the wood. Because only a certain number of trees can be cut each year, it can be difficult to find and can be costly. Salvaged teak sold by Island Timber is salvaged from Javanese homes. It is dry and stable, having aged over decades of use.
