Our process begins by deep cleaning the teak wood. Cleaning teak helps to remove any discoloration from stains, varnishes, teak oil, mold or natural wear. Most importantly, this process steralizes the wood to kill any mold spores that may persist on the wood surface. Our biodegradeable teak cleaner is not hazardous to animals or humans, and it won’t cause your plants to die!
In our second step, we sand the furniture with fine grit sand paper ranging from 60-240 grit depending on the condition of the wood. Sanding teak return the wood’s weathered surface to the comfortable texture of brand new teak furniture. Using detailing equipment, or in some cases our bare hands, we meticulously smooth out any tough to reach areas between slats or in tight corners. Sanding teak furniture is the most challenging part of restoring teak furniture. Whether its a teak boat deck, small teak table or a complex adirondack teak chair, sand teak takes time, patience and a lot of elbow grease.
After sanding the teak, we prime the wood by gently cleaning the wood again to remove any residue left over from the sanding process. This ensures that the teak sealer will form an effective bond with the wood surface, which helps prolong the life of your newly refinished teak. We then allow the teak furniture to dry completely before moving on to the teak refinishing process.
Finally, sufficient coats of our premium, marine-grade teak sealant is thoroughly applied to your teak furniture or teak deck. This sealer is available in multiple tones ranging from clear, natural, honey, gold and brown. Years of experience has lead us to the best products available, and we are confident that we have a color that suits your desires. Occasionally, our clients requests particular marine teak varnishes or even wood paint. We will happily adjust out restoration methods for these requests.
