Teak wood is a stunning natural material valued for it’s beauty and durability with properties that make it perfect for prolonged outdoor use. Teak is a dense hardwood that contains natural oils that repel water and insects and resists warping and splintering, making it ideal for outdoor furniture. Due to its high oil content teak furniture does not require any special maintenance or protection apart from occasional cleaning. Additionally, teak is resistant to rot, simplifying maintenance.

As the wood is exposed to the elements it will naturally undergo a weathering process that causes it to take on a beautiful silver-gray patina. Normal use will result in small, hairline cracks appearing in the wood; this does not detract from the quality or the life span of the wood. This is all part of the normal characteristic of teak.

KETTLER® prioritizes the sustainable and legal cultivation and harvesting of teak wood. Most of our teak patio furniture is certified with the SVLK or FSC® mark.

Care & Maintenance


We recommend that you gently clean all KETTLER® Teak products with a cloth, sponge or soft brush, water and a mild soap solution. Cleaning should be performed a couple times a year or as needed. Always clean in the direction of the grain. This prevents the wood from drying out, extending its lifespan.

  • Do not use a pressure washer.
  • Do not use an abrasive cleaner or cleaning tool.
  • Allow the product to “breathe” to prevent molding. Furniture covers are not recommended.
  • Do not paint or varnish as it will not adhere to the wood and will chip or peel off.
  • Use of oils may cause discoloration or mildew.
  • Avoid storing chairs underneath teak tables as the natural oils may seep through the wood and cause staining.
  • Do not store any items (i.e. placements) on top of teak for long periods of time as the natural oils may seep through the wood and cause staining.
  • Do not apply any cleaning or protecting product to the teak for the first season.
