There are a number of cheaper hardwoods used for outdoor furniture and all of them are inferior to teak. Jarrah is the is the most common of these woods and it does not have the same life expectancy as teak, let alone the same touch, feel or aesthetic quality.

You are not comparing like with like when you compare teak outdoor furniture with any other wood furniture. It is strange anomaly that despite the fact it is built to endure decades outside in harsh weather. Generally price is dictated by the shape and weight of a piece of furniture.

This washing should probably be done at the beginning of each outdoor season. Make sure the all nuts, bolts, and screws are tightened; replace any that are broken, rusted, or missing. If your furniture has hinges or wheels, grease them with a silicone lubricant. If you lubricate with oil it will usually cake up and attracts dirt. Wooden furniture may need a coating of sealer and outdoor finish. Between seasons wood furniture can also be washed with the mild soap and water solution. Some wood furniture needs to be stored away during the winter with the exception of teak outdoor furniture or cedar outdoor furniture; these two woods hold up quite well all year long. Redwood furniture is another type that is weather resistant although it may split and it will turn grey within a year. If you prefer the natural color of redwood as opposed to the grey you can apply a redwood stain and then a sealer to keep its beautiful color. Before you apply the stain wash the furniture and replace any needed hardware; lightly sand, dust, and wipe clean.
