They are teakwood and PE rattan outdoor furniture. Someone insists that teakwood outdoor furniture is the best option. PE rattan outdoor furniture also has gained more popularity recently.
Do you know which type you should use for your garden? Check out below for a comparison between the two types. Both Teak and Rattan are great products for the garden and both offer advantages.
Teak has been used for Outdoor Garden Furniture for many years. Teak itself is high oil content and stability. It will naturally appear oily. The more you use it, the brighter it becomes. Teak is a very strong wood that is resistant to termite attack. It is well suited to the rigours of outdoor furniture and can withstand the heat in the summer. And if properly constructed, they can last much longer than other types of furniture.
Teakwood is often finished with one of two types of coating. Teak oil is brushed over the surface of teak to provide a protective coating for the wood. Teak oil generally lasts between 1-3 months before reapplication is required. The second option is Polyurethane lacquer or PU for Short. This is a solution that is painted over the furniture in several coats and provides a much longer protective wood coating for 12 to 18 months depending on its usage. So with proper care and maintenance Teak wood outdoor furniture can last as long as you want it to.
Synthetic Rattan on the other hand is very different from teakwood. The general synthetic rattan materials are PE rattan and PVC rattan. Comparatively PE rattan is much more popular. It is constructed with an aluminum powder coated frame with the rattan woven over this frame. If properly coated, the frame won’t rust. The joints with 360 welding will ensure they are strong. The rattan should be of a high quality such as by Viro and Rehau to ensure they last. If all of these have been done, then good PE rattan furniture can last at least 5+ years depending on the usage that it gets.
PE rattan outdoor furniture, like all other furniture, will last as long as it is cared for properly. PE Rattan Furniture is lightweight. That means it is easy to move. And it is easy to clean requiring just a hose down when dirty.
So both types offer their distinct advantages. In the end taste will offer as much a factor as the durability. However the above points are important to consider when purchasing new garden furniture.
