Inspired by a blog post on an outdoor blog recently discovered here at Summer Classics, we thought we’d share with you what goes in to making our teak products.
First, the secret to a great piece of Teak furniture is all in the wood. Inferior quality Teak will usually have low oil content, resulting in cracking and splitting decreasing the life span of the wood.
The SC Difference is that we source the highest quality Marine Grade Teak to manufacture our outdoor furniture. Retaining very high moisture content, this premium teak is more resistant to cracking and splitting that can endanger your piece.
The Ocean sweeps in and out in shades of azure, green and white, on to beige-pink sand, just as our Ocean Grande creates the same colors in Burmese high quality teak in mortise and tenon construction.
The Summer Classics Croquet Teak Collection is another example of the beauty of teak. Introduced from France to Britain in the 19th century, croquet became the fashionable game of the day. Our Croquet is crafted in marine grade teak with mortise and tenon joinery.This great outdoor material is just as beautiful away from the ocean as well.
Our Teak possesses extraordinary resistance to even the harshest of outdoor elements, including ocean exposure. While the color of Teak will inherently change over time, which can be appreciated in outdoor furniture as discussed in “Take a Peak at Teak,” we recommend an annual cleaning and sealing to help maintain and extend the life and beauty of the piece.
The Sc Difference in Teakis solid Marine Grade Teak with mortise and tenon construction. Resins are hand woven over a never rust, hand-welded aluminum frame finished with a baked-on high quality polyester powder. N-Dura™ Resin Wicker is guaranteed to last 4000 hours in direct sunlight and not experience any significant color change for 5 years.
