Teak is the ideal wood for decking, the standard of excellence. Boat builders have hailed the natural characteristics of teak for centuries; its unparalleled durability, workability and resistance to all extremes of climate. Teak is unaffected by insects, fungus, acids or alkalis.
The natural oils in "tectona grandis," (true teak), eliminate the need for preservatives and sealants to prevent cracking. Teak is prized for its golden color, dark markings and straight grain. Although coarse in texture, it is smooth to the touch and has virtually no raised grain. Owners may choose to finish the wood to a preferred shade or simply leave it to take on a natural silver gray patina.
Durability has made teak the only hardwood qualified for decks on U.S. Navy battleships. Admiral's Choice Teak Decking is truly no maintenance and has a clear non-skid advantage. Admiral's Choice is the best long term investment for every application. Keep in mind that this product is suitable for residential decks and walkways as well as commercial and public spaces.
