Be sure to look for gaps in the way the wooden joints are fitted together. Poor craftsmanship will be an obvious sign of a dodgy dealer. Any uneven gaps between wood should be addressed immediately along with any other obvious discrepancies, such as visible marks left by glue. Any of these unsightly problems are tell-tale signs of lazy workmanship.
The last thing to take into account when looking to purchase some Grade A teak is the guarantee supplied by the dealer. A one year guarantee should instantly sound warning bells in your head; why would a company have such a lack of faith in their products to condemn a wood of longevity to survive a mere twelve months?
We at Primrose love our high quality teak; it's the strongest, finest, most lovely wood and we think it's worth sourcing properly and honestly. All of our beautiful Liz Frances furniture pieces are made from the best wood around, harvested responsibly from forests operating under environmentally friendly schemes. As your honest and humble go-to gurus of all things garden, we at Primrose promise that our Liz Frances teak pieces will always be constructed excellently, sourced environmentally, graded honestly and finished beautifully.
Only mature trees are cut down, which means higher quality wood, and therefore higher quality furniture. We are proud to proclaim that we fully comply with the new 2013 EU Timber Regulations, and we're even able to trace the provenance of our timber, right along the supply chain back to the plantation.
High quality teak garden furniture is generally resistant to water and moisture, however it is not immune to mould, mildew or moss, especially if exposed to prolonged high levels of moisture. Although the first unsightly signs of mould, mildew or moss are never welcome and always frustrating, we're pleased to tell you that getting rid of these pesky moisture born marks is actually rather simple. So easy in fact, that you can make a teak cleaner yourself!
After five minutes, hose off the solution and like magic, the mould, mildew and moss should have vanished. Do not allow your furniture to soak for longer than 5 minutes, and do not allow the wood to dry during the allotted time. If parts of the wood begin to dry, reapply the solution to said areas as quickly as possible. Should any sign of mildew, mould or moss survive your initial bleach busting, reapply the solution to affected areas accordingly.
