FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
does Anderson Teak offer such a large range of products?
Our consumers’ preferential taste with regards to the style
of furniture is important to us. Every person has a
different taste toward our products. Based on our
experiences, our preferences continually change along with
our age, style, and way of life. Since we supply in all
different level of markets with different kinds of
preferences, we have to assure that we can cover all
is Teak furniture more expensive than other hardwood
furniture on the market?
There are a number of cheaper hardwoods used for outdoor
furniture with all of them inferior to teak. “Jarrah” is the
most common of these woods and it does not have the same
life expectancy as teak - let alone the same touch, feel or
aesthetic quality. Teak furniture is not expensive when you
relate the cost to its life expectancy; you must remember
this when comparing prices. You are not comparing like with
like when you compare teak with any other wood. It is a
strange anomaly that despite the fact it is built to endure
decades in harsh weather conditions, our furniture is less
expensive than other quality indoor chairs and tables.
less expensive items in the range have the same quality as
the more expensive?
Generally price is dictated by the shape and weight of a
piece of furniture. The more shape a piece has, the more
wood is required to make it along with taking more time to
create. Also, the heavier the sections of wood used means
more weight and thus more cost. No matter which piece of
furniture you choose, you can be assured that the same
quality teak and standard of workmanship is used along with
the same methods of manufacture and assembly.
do I look after my teak furniture?
Teak is a natural product; it can be left out in the open
all year round through rain, hail or shine. Its color will
gradually mellow to a graceful silver grey. The character of
your furniture will alter, but its strength will remain. An
occasional scrub down with hot soapy water will compliment
this process and discourage any moss growth.
long will it last?
Teak furniture should last a lifetime if properly built in
the first place. We use only the top grade kiln-dried
timber, epoxy resins for lasting strength, and any metal
parts are either stainless steel or solid brass, which will
not rust or corrode when left outside. The top grade teak
furniture which is used in all our furniture and with its
high natural oil content, resists both warping and rot and
ensures that Indian Ocean teak furniture will last more than
appear periodically in my furniture and then go away?
This is perfectly normal as the wood breathes and reacts to
variations in the moisture content of the air. The cracking
tends to appear on the end grain sections and usually
happens early in the life of the furniture. Cracks come and
go depending on seasonal variations but rarely do they
affect the strength, performance, or life expectancy of the
I keep the furniture indoors during the winter months?
There is no problem wintering furniture outside, though it
may need a washing down in spring before use. Should you
prefer to bring your furniture indoors, our range of folding
tables and chairs are perfect and can be easily tucked away
when not in use.
Stains, Chips and Scratches?
Most drink stains will weather out naturally or can be
cleaned down with soapy water and a hard brush. Other damage
or stains can be removed quite simply using ordinary
sandpaper. The grade of sandpaper depends on the degree of
damage. Serious damage - start with course and move up to
fine. Light damage - fine grade is all you will need. Stains
usually disappear with a light sanding.
easy is the furniture to assemble?
Most of the time the furniture is supplied flat-packed in
semi-assemblies. Only few products come in fully assembles.
All flat-packed items come with the hardware, dowels, screw
To make the furniture stronger and more stable, glue is
required even though in some cases glue is not required. In
most cases the furniture can be assembled within a few
minutes by a single person with a minimum of tools. However,
a helper is always useful.
