Furniture refinishing

While outdoor furniture restoration can be a labor-intensive and costly endeavor, some pieces are truly worth the investment. Take, for instance, a magnificent set of teak furniture. Renowned for its durability and timeless elegance, teak furniture epitomizes quality craftsmanship and enduring beauty. Despite the effort involved, restoring such a prized ensemble is not just a task – it’s a testament to preserving the artistry and value of exceptional outdoor furnishings.

It’s time to reseal your deck

As nature takes its course, even the most stunning decks can succumb to wear and tear, leaving the wood weathered and unhealthy. Unsure if it’s time to revitalize your deck? Conduct a simple water splash test: pour some water onto the surface, and if it’s immediately absorbed by the wood, it’s a clear sign that deck restoration is overdue. Don’t wait until the damage worsens – take action now to bring back the beauty and health of your outdoor space.

Here is an example of what NOT to do:

To effectively seal exterior wood, such as the fence depicted here, dry weather is essential for the products to penetrate the wood surface properly. That’s why we’re committed to working only when conditions are optimal, ensuring lasting results and value for your investment.

Unfortunately, this year’s inclement weather has already cost us nearly two months of the already brief sealing season. Nevertheless, our dedication remains unwavering in delivering high-quality work that yields the best outcomes for you.

Don’t end up like this guy—trust us for professional, weather-ready services!

desk refinishing went wrong

It’s very important to do the job right by the book. If it’s deck restoration, it’s even more important. We stopped any restoration projects on September 15 last year. This spring we had a couple of requests for estimates from home owners, who got in a little trouble after work was done by other companies too close to the rain season.
Here are few pics of ruined deck. Removing failed product is an expensive process.

Summer of 2012 was the last year we used Cabot products on our decks. Cabot known as a great stain manufacturer for a long period of time. We used to use Cabot’s Australian Timber Oil on our ipe deck projects, because this sealer last longer on exotic hardwood, then other sealers.

Cabot changed their formula again (they did it at least 3 times in last 7 years, probably to be VOC compliant), and Cabot’s ATO became a very difficult product to work with. Cabot’s ATO still shows best performance in our test lab, but after understanding that the application cant be done with best quality, we decided to switch to another product. To find out which sealers we use visit our Secrets page.

We had an interesting project this May. The homeowner used a stain from one of premium names in color Driftwood. Although he applied it correctly, and had done a lot of wood preparation, the stain start pilling after less then one year. He decided to call professional woody. The Driftwood is not very popular among homeowners, and it was a big pleasure to work with this product. We were able to completely strip all surfaces and apply great product almost the same color.
