Teak offers superior resistance to the elements, which is one of the main reasons it is used for boat decking. It is dimensionally stable in extreme cold and heat, and not prone to warp or split, even when repeatedly wet and dried.

Teak is elegant and beautiful in any application. When freshly cleaned, teak has an attractive golden color that with time weathers to a silver-grey patina. Very low maintenance, teak can be kept golden and new looking with very little work, typically just scrubbing with teak cleaner. It can also be oiled or varnished to bring out its impressive grain and take on a golden-brown hue. Teak has a high silica content and is very dense and hard, it can withstand tremendous abuse.
Decking and Dock Planks
Florida Teak stocks specially milled planks for residential outdoor decking using a simple to install and durable hidden-clip system (see photo). Teak decking is naturally insect and rot resistant with easy maintenance and superior resistance to sun-damage. It is dimensionally stable, highly unlikely to warp from moisture or dramatic temperature changes. Its natural beauty can be easily restored with commonly available teak cleaners, no sanding required. A unique feature of teak, is that it is cooler to walk on than other woods, a key consideration for decks.
