Frequently Asked Questions



Can I stain or paint my teak furniture?


One of the unique characteristics of teak is its inherent high content of oil. This distinctive property however makes it difficult for paint to adhere to its surface and over time, through changes in temperatures and the seasons, will crack and peel. Painting may also have a secondary impact on the teakwood itself. The wood surface may not have the ability to now “breathe”, due to the sealing characteristics of the paint, but may start to develop mold and mildew in the areas where moisture is absorbed through the “cracks and peels” of the paint over time. This is why we do not recommend painting your teakwood furniture. Like paint, stain is another form of sealant, though there are types that would allow the teakwood to “breathe”. Please consult a wood paint specialist to ask a suitable type for your application, i.e. indoor or outdoor. More often than not, the use of a sealant such as stain, oils or varnish, are better suited for indoor use where the furniture is not subjected to the effects of the outdoor environment.
