Is your teak Grade A?
Yes, at Neighbor, we predominantly use Grade A teak for our outdoor furniture, ensuring the highest quality and durability for your living spaces outdoors. Grade A teak is the premium segment of teak wood, renowned for its exceptional qualities and aesthetic appeal. Here’s a breakdown of what Grade A teak means and why it’s important:
What is Grade A Teak?
- Quality: Grade A teak comes from the heartwood of mature teak trees, typically those that are at least 20 years old. This part of the teak tree is the densest, boasting high natural oil content, which makes the wood exceptionally resistant to water, rot, and insects.
- Appearance: It has a uniform, golden-brown color without knots or cracks, giving it a smooth finish and a beautiful, rich appearance that ages gracefully over time to a distinguished silvery-gray.
- Durability: Thanks to its natural oils, Grade A teak is incredibly durable, making it ideal for outdoor furniture that withstands various weather conditions, from scorching sun to pouring rain.
Our Use of Teak
At Neighbor, our commitment to quality and sustainability means we choose the best materials for our products. While we predominantly use Grade A teak for its superior characteristics, especially for the visible parts of our furniture, we also responsibly utilize Grade A/B teak for non-visible surfaces in some instances. This approach allows us to maintain our high standards of durability and aesthetics, while also ensuring the sustainable use of resources.
Why It Matters
Choosing Grade A teak for outdoor furniture is about more than just the immediate appeal; it's about investing in pieces that will last and remain beautiful for years to come. It also reflects our commitment to sustainability, ensuring that we use materials that are not only durable but also sourced in a way that respects the environment.
In summary, when you choose Neighbor for your outdoor furniture, you're choosing pieces crafted from the highest quality teak, designed to enhance your outdoor living spaces with beauty, durability, and a commitment to sustainability.
