Teak rocking chairs are the royalty among rockers. They speak of luxury, fine finishing and meticulous craftsmanship. A teak rocking chair on your porch will tell your neighbors that you want only the best and can afford it. Teak deserves its reputation as a superior outdoor furniture material: this exotic wood from Asia is very dense and substantial. It is very hard and its natural oils protect it from warping, water damage, harsh sun and insects. It has a beautiful sheen that will make your teak rocking chair glow. These outdoor rockers are usually very finely crafted, with curved back support and curved edges of the seat and hand supports. Teak rocking chairs are often sold oiled, lightly covered with wood preservative, or left natural. In time, if left unprotected, they will age into a silvery gray elegance. Teak rocking chairs are easy to maintain. Clean them with a wet cloth and soapy water and oil them with teak oil once a year, unless they are protected with wood preservative.
