What is Teak Refinishing?
Teak refinishing is the process of reversing damage caused by the effects of weathering and use of inferior protective coatings on outdoor teak furniture. Has your teak furniture weathered to an unsightly grayish black color? Does it have a finish that has begun to blister and peel? If you have answered yes to either of these questions you have come to the right place. We are experts in transforming damaged teak furniture back to showroom condition.
Our Teak Refinishing Process
Our process begins with a mild surface clean to remove the weathering effects of dirt, mold, and oxidation. If your teak furniture has a coating that is blistering or peeling such as teak oil or varnish, it will be removed with a biodegradable stripping agent. After teak wood has dried thoroughly it will be sanded to remove the remaining oxidation and debris. We sand all areas of your teak furniture including the bottom and between the slats. Meticulous care is given to all areas when sanding to preserve the woods’ edges and detail. Sanding will leave the surface of the wood smooth to the touch and prepare it for the protective coating to adhere correctly. When sanding has been completed the wood will be cleaned and brightened to promote color and prevent mold. A protective coating will be applied to your teak furniture based on color preference and weathering characteristics of your area.
Protecting New Teak Furniture3>
Teak furniture needs to be protected immediately when it is placed outdoors. The damaging effects of weather can change the appearance of your teak furniture in just a couple days. We offer a wide array of protective coatings for outdoor teak furniture based on your preference. We offer semi-transparent and solid stains as well as enamels to coat your teak furniture. We find that many clients prefer keeping their new teak furniture close to its original color. We recommend the use of sealers to keep teak furniture in the same color range as purchased.
