Woods used in wooden benches must either be treated or have natural
properties to inhibit decay if the wooden benches are to be used outdoors.
Pressure treated pine wooden benches
are perfect for the outdoors. These
benches can be left untreated or painted or stained to your liking. Our pressure-treated wooden benches use top quality stainless
steel fasteners and offer great, long-lasting value. Other wooden benches made from other North American-sourced
woods have natural resistance to decay; these woods include redwood,
cypress, cedar and cherry.
The long-lasting reputation of wooden
benches made from Teak is well deserved.
However, wooden benches made from other dense and heavy tropical
hard woods also offer excellent value.
We particularly recommend our wooden benches made from Shorea.
They offer much of the same look, feel and longevity of teak at a
fraction of the price.
All woods used in wooden benches will oxidize and turn
gray with time if left untreated. Many
consider this a desirable feature.

to treat wooden benches against the effects of oxidation.
