What is Grade ‘A’ teak?

There are actually 3 grades of teak and they are used to refer to the quality of the timber, they are Grades A, B, and C.

Grade ‘A’ teak is the finest quality teak taken from the heartwood at the centre of the tree.

The benefit is that the heartwood colour is better, harder and tends to have fewer blemishes – knots etc. and the grain is more consistent – better to look at and generally knot free.

The difference between Grade A and Grade C

The difference between Grade A and Grade C

Teakwood is widely known for its exceptional weatherproof quality; many ocean-going yachts are built with teak decking and fixtures.


Indeed many boats may be built using 100% teak, apart from being beautiful to look at and it’s ability to last a lifetime – getting more handsome as it ages, it’s natural composition of silica and rubber is the reason for its water repellent properties!

And, the reason that poor imitations will fail!

At Chairs and Tables Fine Teak Garden Furniture we go to great lengths to ensure that the correct quality of teakwood is used after proper seasoning to reduce the risk of distortion and cracking. Following selection traditional construction methods are employed by craftsmen who use tried and tested methods including very tight mortis and tenon joints with dowel inserts to exclude water from the joints. Finishing is important too, thorough sanding and smoothing enables the natural wood texture to shine through and importantly removes any sharp edges caused during assembly, this latter is very important as we want our Luxury Teak Furniture to be smooth to the touch and snag free to protect the user and their clothing. Brass fittings and comfy cushions are standard where appropriate to add a touch of class to the perfection of shape and style.

But why Teakwood?
Teak is a natural wood that is ideal for outside furniture because of its natural properties. Teak timber is high in natural oil and rubber content, to retain its natural patina the wood can be treated with additional oil.
Teak is a tree that grows in the wild, over centuries people have predated the teak in forests denuding them and causing havoc to wildlife habitats. Presently, sustainable teak is grown in plantations that are carefully managed in an effort to ensure that the natural forests are not despoiled. Sustainable plantation grown teak is the only teakwood that is used in the manufacture of Chairs and Tables Luxury Teak Garden Furniture.
Teakwood is a close-grained type of material making it ideal for furniture making as well as being widely used in many other sectors not least the building of fine quality boats. Teak has a silica content that allows for greater grip even when wet, and makes it highly durable even in the toughest conditions – in extremes of weather, and has a skid free surface that adds safety to its many other qualities.
In short, teakwood is the best material available for the production of top quality garden furniture because it is rot resistant, non-slip, tough as nails, and will maintain its good looks for many years to come, with a little TLC Teak Garden Furniture will look just about as good as the day it was made throughout its useful life.

Of course to properly enjoy sitting out in your garden you will need some garden furniture. This could be something simple from a couple of chairs to table sets, benches, and sun loungers. Much like other types of furniture, garden furniture comes in a variety of materials and styles, so there is plenty of options at available for anyone in the market for some new additions to their garden.

The price of garden furniture can vary as well so you can invest a lot or a little amount of money depending on what your preference and budget is. It is perfectly fine to spend a little less on your garden furniture but those that decide on paying a little more for high quality could actually benefit more in the long-term.

Check out some reasons as to why you should invest in quality garden furniture!


One of the most noticeable aspects of quality garden furniture is just how great it looks. This is mainly down to the materials used and the higher quality craftsmanship that tends to go into making them.

Teak or cedar are considered very high quality types of wood for example, and these will almost always look far better in your garden when compared to materials such as plastic or even lower quality wood types.

No matter the furnishings, be it a bench, chairs, or a table, you can be sure that when you opt for high quality that it will provide a fantastic look and style to your garden. They can serve as a centre piece and focal point for your garden as well.


Quality garden furniture usually requires quality materials, which will always lead to a much more durable piece of furniture. This can be quite important especially given the volatility of the British climate, as quality furniture is built to last much more than cheaper options.

Materials of a lower quality can really start to show their true value after a short time. Cheap wood and most plastic furniture will eventually break over time and much sooner than when compared to high quality furniture using materials such as teak or steel.

Long-Term Use

A direct reflection on the durability of high quality garden furniture is the fact that it will last quite a long time. There will be no need to reinvest in garden furniture every year or so if you have already bought something of a higher quality because they are built to last!

Even with our wild British weather you can be sure that investing in some high quality garden furniture will be one for the long-term – teak garden furniture can last upwards of 20 years, so it is safe to say you will get your money’s worth when going for quality!

High quality garden furniture in essence pays for itself. You won’t be buying anything new for quite some time, which will mean the money saved not having to constantly purchase garden furniture helps to cover the higher cost associated with the furniture.
