There is growing demand for architectural teak in high-end homes, restaurants and hotels.

The Highest Quality Architectural Teak
High quality old-growth teak should not be confused with common furniture-quality teak, the two have very different qualities. Genuine old-growth teak doesn’t need oiling, and even if left completely unfinished, it will last for centuries in near-perfect condition. Interior floors and stairs are often built in teak for its aesthetic beauty and extreme durability. Quality teak is durable enough to be used on bathroom floors and even in showers. Its beauty is breathtaking, and it can be finished in ways to bring out its unique grain and color. Teak can also be re-finished much easier than other woods due to its high-density. Teak is easily sanded or even chemically stripped to reveal a pristine layer of new wood just below the surface. This allows teak to be refinished many times look brand-new for a lifetime!
