About The Teak
Over time, as natural teak is exposed to the elements, it gradually changes colour from the honey color of new teak to a silver-grey patina which distinguishes finely aged, outdoor teak. After a while this silver-grey patina deteriorates to a dark-grey and greenish look if it remains untreated.
To protect the teak you can use Teak oil or Danish oil every season.
Checking is a term used to describe small cracks that appear. These checking cracks would most likely occur at the ends of the slats, ends of the arms or anywhere where end grain is exposed. This is completely natural and not a cause for concern.
