We bought this bench to put around our swimming pool and use on the screened porch when not used for the former purpose. While serviceable, you get what you pay for. This is clearly not a solid teak bench, nor is it even of teak! But you are only paying a bit over ***, too. We're not sure what the durability of the bench is, but, for now, it will do. It certainly is not unattractive. And we have fitted it out with some nice seat and back cushions. So that helps. It also takes 45-1 hr. to assemble, too. So, be prepared for that. All in all, while the price is nice, it is just an OK purchase.
