Weathered Teak All SUNTEAKLIVING Teak collection are available in 2 finished, natural sanded and weathered finished. The weathered teak finish is intended to be a maintenance free finish but some cleaning over time will be needed. Spring, summer and early fall this bench sat in a wooded area under oak, hickory and gum ball trees. It was not cleaned for 6 months. Black dots, yellowing, dark streaks and even insects & bugs are part of this products response to extreme outdoor conditions of rain, heat and sun light. #Black dots are easily cleaned with teak cleaner. Black dots are not to be considered a defect. #Yellowing is the aging of the natural wood under the weathered finish. This will fade away once exposed to the sun.
