What to Look For When Buying Teak Garden Furniture
Teak Quality: Purchasing your furniture from a reputable company ensures that you are receiving a high-quality item. Ordering from less reputable companies can and often does lead to lower quality furniture with a shorter lifespan
False Advertising: Some companies may use misleading or deceitful advertising to entice you into purchasing their products. Always ensure to check a company's reputation before purchasing.
No Warranty: Reputable companies often provide warranties on their products. If something happens to your furniture, or it does not meet your expectations in any way, many reputable companies will work with you to ensure that you are happy with your order. However, if you buy from a non-reputable company, there is usually no avenue for recourse if something goes wrong with your
Construction: Look for furniture with joints that are either dovetail or mortise and tenon, which are signs of high-quality construction. Avoid furniture held together with nails, staples, or glue as these tend to break down when exposed to the environment.
Finishing: Well-made teak furniture doesn't require any varnish due to the naturally high content of oils in the wood. Avoid painted teak, as the paint will likely peel and flake over time.
Comfort: Comfort is essential, especially for pieces you'll use often. Consider furniture that comes with cushions, or add your own. Always check the seat height to ensure that you will not be too low down or too high up making your dining experience uncomfortable.
Size and Function: Consider the space where you'll place the furniture and what you'll use it for. Make sure that you have enough space without crowding the area. Our extending tables are a great way to fit a large dining set in a small space and this can simply be folded away when not in use.
