Information About Teak Lumber

Why Teak is the Preferred Wood for Numerous Applications
Gibson McIlvain Company only sells old growth Teak that originates in Southeast Asia.
The lumber is extremely resistant to termites and other infestations. Combined with its strength, high silica content, and naturally-occurring oils, Teak has become a popular choice of lumber for exterior columns, doors, and window frames.
Its golden-brown color and smooth grain allows for attractive interior panels and molding, with the natural oils of the wood eliminating the need for extensive treatment with varnishes or finishing.
The same properties make Teak a quality lumber for the exterior of boats and yachts, as well. Because Teak is a hard wood, the lumber is not as easily worked as others, but it provides a level of stability not found with many other varieties of wood.
