SHOULD

Teak is loaded with an Oleoresin which naturally protects it from moisture. When faced with harsh weather conditions (rain, frost, sun), it takes on a characteristic grey colour but loses none of its rot-proof properties.

 

If you like this grey tint, you can simply let the wood evolve naturally, and just clean it occasionally with a suitable product.

 

If you want the wood to regain its original colour, you must sand it down with fine sandpaper (in the same direction as the grain of the wood), apply specially designed teak oil with a cloth and allow to dry. Repeat the procedure a second time and then buff to obtain a satin appearance to the wood.

 

This maintenance may be performed at variable frequency according to sun exposure and bad weather.
