All of our easy-to-assemble KD teak product is SOLID TEAK from Indonesia PLANTATION TEAK • Our Plantation Teak products are plantation- grown and harvested from mature trees that are 50-60 years old • This line of teak is part of a replenished forestry program, where a new tree is planted for each one that is harvested. • Our Plantation teak is oven- or air-dried for moisture control. RECLAIMED TEAK • Reclaimed Teak products contain wood that has been reclaimed from old structures including barns, houses or ﬂooring. The wood is remilled after reclamation. • Because the wood is reclaimed, it has already been aged and dried so there is no need for an additional step to control moisture. • Plugs in the planks due to nail holes or age are NORMAL and are considered to add to the character of the reclaimed teak product • A wire wheel is used to distress the reclaimed wood to enhance the grain and provide a more rustic ﬁnish. HARDWARE • The hardware on our teak furniture is zinc-coated steel that has been plated in brass. The zinc helps minimize corrosion, steel was chosen for strength,and brass for its luster. USE & CARE • You may choose to allow your teak to weather to a beautiful silver-gray patina or treat it twice a year to preserve the teak’s golden ﬁnish. • Should you choose to treat your teak, we recommend using an oil or sealer speciﬁcally made for teak. Using permanent sealing methods such as polyurethane or varnish disrupts the natural moisture control process and may result in cracked wood or ﬁnish. • Teak may be cleaned using a wood cleaner or lightly sanded with 600 (or higher) grit sandpaper. • We recommend that you leave your teak products outside year-round (under a furniture cover in the off-season), but if that is not an option, teak must be stored in a COOL, DRY place over the winter.
