If outdoor teak furniture and decks lived in clean air, we could let the wood weather naturally and go on to other things. Unfortunately, the assault of modern-day air pollutants and the proximity to water and plant algae, quickly turns bare teak and wood nearly black. In fact, it only takes a few weeks to see the effects of air pollutants and intense sunlight on anything left outside. Scrubbing only removes some of the stains leaving a blotchy look that’s neither golden nor gray. Most outdoor teak furniture and wood deck owners find themselves unhappy with either look and decide that some treatment is essential.
Nothing brightens the natural appearance of a patio as much as well-maintained teak furniture. Being an owner of teak or other outside hardwood, you are faced with numerous variations on restoring weathered teak, teak maintenance, and wood sealing.

These cleaners and sealers are designed for restoring weathered teak and to protect and safeguard your furniture and decks from further damage by the elements.

That’s why it’s essential to hire a professional company like ours that understands the very best way to protect and preserve the look and feel of your teak furniture.
It’s important to understand that teak furniture and outside wood will need some type of teak maintenance after being sealed. The location of your teak furniture and deck along with the amount of exposure to the environment, will determine how long before maintenance is needed. Our teak maintenance program is simple: we do all the work at your home and most maintenance jobs require less time and labor compared to a restoration job. This reduces the cost and provides a quick completion on your furniture and deck.
The best option for preserving the furniture’s natural color and new appearance is restoring the wood to its natural finish and sealing teak furniture with a protective sealer. The preparation in restoring the wood to its natural finish truly sets the professional results apart from the amateur attempts.
Refinishing weathered teak furniture requires striping any old sealer and removing any gray and discoloration. Reason being, old sealers and discoloration in the wood will interfere with the bonding of a new sealer. We then sand all furniture for smoothness and texture. Once furniture has been prepped correctly, we then seal the teak furniture with 2 coats of a high-quality “Marine Sealer”.
