Outdoor dining puts you in touch with more sunsets, more fresh breezes, and more noteworthy nature sightings. The Willow Creek Huntington 5 Piece Round Teak Patio Dining Set provides the classic look of teak, which is finely sanded to create a touchable texture. Teak hardwood is worked by craftsmen to create strong mortise and tenon joints. Dowels reinforce areas that are subject to particular stress. Solid foam core seat cushions tie on securely and are available in a range of colors.
Since it's highly resistant to pests, rot, and mildew, teak has long been prized for applications like bridge- and ship-building where the elements tend to take a heavy toll on inferior materials. Natural oils within teak prevent water from being absorbed. These oils also repel pests, mildew, and rot. Teak is just as durable in its unfinished state and will gradually take on a silvery patina hue over months of exposure to the outdoors.
Teak will not swell or crack in response to changes in humidity, but you may notice small cracks in the end grain of your teak. These may come and go as atmospheric conditions change, but they don't weaken your teak or reduce its lifespan.
UV-protected Sunbrella is solution dyed for maximum colorfastness. It also resists mildew and dries quickly when wet to meet the demands of outdoor exposure.
