Grade A Teak is the most durable wood for exterior use. We recommend letting your teak grey naturally for that timeless classic look. Natural teak can absorb moisture and may develop cracks as it expands and contracts with hot and cold temperatures. UV will patina your teak to a silver/grey within months to a year depending on it's UV exposure creating that rustic teak look loved by many.
All of our painted aluminum frames will not experience rust and have been powder coated for exterior use. To clean your painted aluminum use nothing more than a non-abrasive cloth, water and a mild dish detergent.
