Teak wood is an extremely rare wood and until 2019 we did not even offer it. The reason for this is that is Teak has a sordid past, in which it was being harvested illegally and unethically. The wood is highly sought after for things like boats, ships, outdoor furniture, countertops, and even flooring. Since those times special regulations have been put on the importation of Teak in an attempt to help prevent these things from happening. Most industry professionals would agree that Teak is the finest wood in the world. We are happy to work with only companies that ethically and legally obtain Teak wood.
Teak Lumber Cost
Because of the limited supply and demand for Teak hardwood lumber, it is very expensive. Teak is the wood used when nothing but the finest will do and the price is not a problem. People will fly in from around the world just to look at a single board. Since a single board can cost upwards of $3,000 it is no wonder the lengths that people will go to to ensure their boards are exactly what they way. We sell Teak planks and Teak boards at the lowest prices for real (not plantation teak) teak. Any project will require a special quote and usually custom milling at our state of the art facilities. We can even take pictures of the boards to ensure you get the ones that you would like.
Why is Teak Amazing?
The extremely oily teak wood, tight and dense grain and high tensile strength help it to have extreme resistance to weather. This is why it is so popular on boats, which encounter many extreme weather conditions. This is also what makes it popular for outdoor applications. The only reason that Ipe has become more popular than Teak is the accessibility to the lumber and cost. Building a deck or fence out of Teak would be cost-prohibitive. But then again we have seen it happen for those lucky few that only want the best.
Enhance Your Outdoor Space with High-Quality Teak Wood for Sale – Choose Natural, Not Farm-Raised!
Are you looking for top-notch Teak wood to add to your outdoor space? It’s crucial to know that not all Teak is created equal. With the challenges faced in importing genuine Teak, some suppliers offer “farm” or “plantation” Teak as an alternative. However, this type of Teak lacks the durability and resistance of natural Teak. In fact, it’s only a fraction as dense as real Teak, and won’t withstand the elements or last as long. For the best results, opt for natural Teak wood for sale.
Other Teak Facts
Teak’s actual name is Tecona grandis. Teak lumber actually has to be dried before it can be used as lumber for 1 to 2 years. The trees that teak comes from can grow over 128 feet tall. Real teak (not farm-raised or plantation) comes primarily from Southeast Asia. The trees that are best for use on commercial, residential or marine applications range from 42-80 years old.
