Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there such a price difference when shopping for teak furniture?
When shopping for Teak furniture, first make sure you are buying 100% solid Teak furniture. Many competitor's disguise the fact that their furniture is either made from Shorea wood, which is NOT teak by any stretch of the imagination, and/or use a combination of Teak and Shorea wood which will not hold up as well as 100% solid Teak furniture. Also, it is very important to make sure you are buying Teak furniture that was made from "kiln dried" lumber, and not "green" lumber which has a high moisture content and will start warping over time when left outdoors. Westminster Teak furniture is made from 100% genuine plantation grown solid kiln dried Teak lumber from Indonesia, and is of the highest quality you can find anywhere in the world. Another reason there is such a difference is the quality of work put into the furniture. For instance, you will not find any other brand of teak furniture that has such a smooth, finely sanded finish as Westminster Teak. Cheaper, lower grade furniture is rough to the touch, and mid grade furniture is still nowhere near as smooth as Westminster Teak Furniture.
