Teak Umbrella : Add the Final Touch to Your Patio
Okay, so you have agonized for weeks and finally went out and purchased that gorgeous teak patio table that you have had your eye on for quite a while. And now that it is nestled away in that perfect spot on your deck, you realize that the only thing that would make you love your teak table even more is the addition of an umbrella. But not just any umbrella, a teak umbrella that is designed to remain beautiful and durable for decades, just like your new teak table.
There are a few good reasons why you should consider adding the final touch of a teak umbrella to your patio table. One of the most important reasons being that teak umbrellas are extremely durable and can withstand virtually any weather condition, year after year.
Take for instance the Kingsley-Bate teak umbrella. Their teak umbrellas combine the durable, golden teak wood that is weather resistant and low maintenace with quality outdoor fabric made by Sunbrella. This combination presents a patio umbrella that will remain beautiful for years.
The luxurious wood used in Kingsley-Bate patio umbrellas is harvested from Java, Indonesia in controlled plantations. Teak is an ideal wood for outdoor furniture and patio umbrellas since it has a lifespan of approximately 75 years. It also is naturally resistant to insects, warping, splintering and the elements. With teak furniture and umbrellas, there is no sealing, no staining, and no finishing. Left alone, teak weathers to a gorgeous patina gray, but if you want to keep the rich, warm color of new teak, you can do so with a seasonal application of a teak protector.
The fabric used in the Kingsley-Bate teak umbrella is made by the leading manufacturer of outdoor fabrics in America. Sunbrella fabrics have been used successfully through the years to create beautiful, stain resistant and fade resistant awnings, umbrellas and furniture cushions that have withstood the test of time and the elements beautifully. Outside of being water repellant and mildew resistant, Sunbrella fabric is UV protected and colorfast.
And you can pick from over 43 different colors of Sunbrella umbrella fabrics which include textured fabrics such as Limelight, Dots Meadow and Autumn; eye-catching colors like Tangerine Periwinkle and Parrot; and classic colors such as Navy, White and Camel.
So when you think about purchasing a patio umbrella, you need to be reminded that the sun beats down mercilessly on them, and they are blasted with all sorts of weather conditions including rain and high winds. That is why it is so important to choose the right type of wood and outdoor fabric for your umbrella. With a teak umbrella, especially one made by the leading teak manufacturer, Kingsley-Bate, you can be assured that you are making an investment that will bring added beauty and enjoyment to your outdoor space for years to come.
