    Hello Coggin7,
    So sorry for the delay in responding to your question.
    I just wanted to confirm the information with the contractor
    who built it.
    The bench height is approximately 16"h x 16"d. The teak
    lumber is approximately 3/8" x 3" x 53". The teak finish is
    just an oil that gets reapplied every year or so.
    The horizontal slats are attached to vertical supports under-
    neath which allows the bench to sit off the surface of the tile.
    There are also 3/16" spaces between the horizontal stats to
    allow for drainage. The tile work is slightly raised at the back,
    so that all water then drains down the front edge of tile bench.
    I hope that this information is still helpful. Thank you so much
    for your question.
    - Angela

    Hi. Can the teak bench lay unattached on a tiled surface so that it could be lifted and wiped dry underneath? Would it warp? Or move if not attached? I'm concerned about mold. Our outdoor teak chairs can get moldy at times.
