Teak shingles has the unusual properties of being both an excellent structural timber for framing, planking, etc., while at the same time being easily worked, unlike some other similar woods such as Purple Heart, and finished to a high degree. Teak is used extensively in boat decks, as it is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance. In addition to relatively high strength, Teak Shingles are highly resistant to rot, fungi and mildew. Teak has a relatively low shrinkage ratio, which makes it excellent for applications where it undergoes periodic changes in moisture
