If you are seeking luxurious and timeless flooring that boasts rich color and shine, teak flooring is an option for you. It is resistant to wear and relatively low maintenance - compared to other hardwood and wood plank flooring solutions. It allows for heavy foot traffic and use for years, with beauty that will stand the test of time.
Because teak is a super hard species of wood, teak flooring will rarely show flaws, and it is fairly resistant to marks, scratches, and dents. Therefore, it works well in hallways, entryways, and spaces occupied by children and pets. Teak flooring is also naturally shiny, as teak wood is rich in oils. This helps the flooring remain rich in appearance, without drying out and cracking.
The combination of hardness in the wood and its natural oils also allows teak to be non-absorbent. Because of this, and the fact that the wood’s oil and hardness repels bugs and fungus, many people choose to use teak flooring on boat decks and outdoor patio furniture.
Teak flooring undoubtedly boasts numerous attractive features and benefits, but it is not without its downfalls. Teak is not eco-friendly. It takes a lot of work to find sustainably grown teak wood. It is grown in tropical locations, and it takes about 100 years to reach maturity. It tends to be over-harvested, so many species of teak are endangered and illegal to export. The species that are not endangered are often harvested before they are mature, limiting the wood’s durability. When it can be exported, because it’s coming from tropical regions of the world, the shipping costs are extremely high and even unattainable for many. Teak flooring is certainly considered to be a premium flooring option that will cost $10 per square foot or more.
If you love the appearance of teak flooring, but are looking for more eco-friendly and less costly alternatives, Greatmats offers the best vinyl and laminate options. These durable and versatile flooring solutions will present the look of teak without harming the environment or breaking the bank.
