The quality and price of these two types are supposedly very distinct. If you dont know your way around teak way, you will surely be deceived and purchase a low quality teak with a high price. So in order for you to cope with this situation, you have to know the basic difference between the two grades. Therefor you should read the following explanation :

GRADE A:
Grade A teak furniture is the best quality of furniture that uses grade A wood. It is made using the center part of the tree plantation; the heartwood. The first thing you have to know about this type is the appearance of the teak wood. Heartwood is supposedly dark golden-brown to dark golden-yellow to rich brown in color with darker chocolate-colored brown streaks. There is no sap wood, no knots and no black or water grain. The color is usually naturally mutual. It has a close-grained hardwood with high natural oil and rubber content. This grade is derived from trees that are 30-50 years old, but presently it can also be produced from trees that are 20-40 years old. That is why the price of grade A wood now is cheaper than it was 10-15 years ago. This is the standard grade for garden furniture.

GRADE C:
This is the lower grade or lower quality of wood. Some buyers consider to buy this grade since the price is cheaper. Unlike grade A wood, Grade C allows the usage of sapwood for its furnitures, which is softer than heartwood. The wood usually contains variations in color, with dark and light streaks. Manufacturers of grade C furnitures usually gives chemical treatment for the wood to make it mutual in color. Grade C has reasonable quality and affordable price. It is recommended that you buy this grade of wood for accessories, such as lantern, dustbin or trolley and for indoor use furniture.
