Dear Sir, 
    See the comparison below

Teak Wood
Raw Material
Teak wood is a kind of hardwood and called the king of the woods. Usually the name of the teak in India is given based on the origin place of the teak. For example, if the teak wood comes from Burma then the teak would be called Burma teak and if it comes from Ivory Coast then the teak would be called Ivory teak. 
Implementation Raw Material
Teak is available in the market as Timber logs whereas some vendors are also selling custom frames that could directly be used in door and window frames. If you buy a log then you would need to cut the log into the required frame sizes and then let the door season. Seasoning is a process where you let the moisture in the wood dry to an optimal level. In normal dry warm weather, it is suggested that seasoning for about one month is recommended. After seasoning the timber logs, the logs are then used in the construction work as required. 
Style/Finishing
Teak wood is considered the best in furniture building. It gives desired finish and have smooth surface After the wood surface is polished, the wood looks very rich. Teak wood can be finished in the following finish:
  • Polishes.
  • Painting.
  • Varnishes
However, we recommend that if you buy teak then use it for the areas where you plan to do polish on the surface. If you want to use paint on the surface then you can use less expensive wood as well where the wood would be hard enough but would not have the required grains. 
Maintenance
  • Teak wood is very strong and durable wood that’s why it only needs a little maintenance.
