Teak Care Guide

Caring For Teak Outdoor Furniture

Country Casual Offers Several Options For Cleaning, Sealing, and Protecting Teak Furniture

Teak (Tectona grandis) is an immensely stable timber, dense in nature, ideal for garden furniture. Natural teak timber varies widely in color from soft, even blonde to rich patterns of golden amber and deep brown. When the furniture is outdoors and untreated, the sun and rain will change all colors to an even, warm, silvery gray. Exceptionally strong and durable, remaining smooth to the touch, immune to warp and rot, teak furnishings last for decades through bright sun, rain, snow and a wide range of seasonal temperatures without any care. Teak requires no preservatives - we offer a variety of products for other aesthetic options.

Country Casual Golden Sealer

Who Should Use Country Casual Golden Sealer?

Golden Sealer teak sealer is the ideal product for anyone trying to maintain the golden blonde color of new teak wood. Teak sealer was designed by Country Casual primarily for use with teak outdoor furniture, and prevents furniture left outdoors from weathering to a silver / gray color.

How Much Should I Use?

For new teak, use 1 liter to cover two coats on a mid-size dining table and chair set; choose 3 liters for larger jobs. An initial two-coat application and a single re-coat of the teak sealer on dry furniture at yearly intervals will preserve the new-teak color (some climates may require more frequent applications). With an indefinite shelf life, leftover Golden Sealer can be used for future applications.

What If My Furniture Isn't new?

Country Casual offers a full range of products to make caring for your teak furniture as simple and easy as possible. To refurbish weathered teak, first clean furniture with Teak Cleaner and then apply Golden Sealer. Weathered teak will require more Golden Sealer than new teak.

How do I apply Teak Sealer?

Teak sealer can be applied to new or newly cleaned teak with a rag or application brush. Country Casual also offers a Utility Kit which can be used to apply any of our teak care products. Before applying Golden Sealer to new teak, we recommend that the teak first be cleaned with Country Casual Teak Cleaner.
