We placed reclaimed teak decking in the elements and photographed it periodically over time. The wood was exposed to southern Oregon weather with temperatures ranging from 6ºF to 106ºF. The teak has been exposed to snow, rain, intense sunshine and particles in the air (dust, pollen, etc). Many factors work together causing wood to turn grey but all wood will turn grey when outside. Depending on the climate, it may take longer in some areas than others.
