Frequently Asked Questions
This is by far our most frequent question when meeting with prospective customers for the first time. And the easy answer is, “Yes, we would not want it any other way.” We don’t do any photoshopping to the pictures on our website. They are all actual pictures of work we’ve done to make the grayest of gray pieces turn into like-new outdoor teak furniture. It’s always an amazing transformation and one we never get tired of seeing – one of the many reasons our crews take such pride in their work!
Most of our teak restoration jobs of 5 – 15 pieces are completed in one day, with the pieces dry and ready for use by the next afternoon. We achieve this turnaround not by rushing but rather by our level of experience. All we do is restore and maintain outdoor teak furniture and decks, and with that comes the expertise regarding methods and materials that allows us to be in and out of your yard with minimal disruption.
It is true, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We are good at what we do, including estimating the time and materials needed to do a job, even just based on a 5-minute phone conversation. We have literally restored more than 10,000 pieces of teak furniture and more than 1,000 decks over the past 10 years, so we know what to ask and how to turn those answers into a firm estimate that won’t yield any surprises down the line.
Over 90 percent of our jobs are done at the customer’s location for several reasons. First off, it is always best for the furniture if moved the least amount of time. A move of any kind can lead to unnecessary wear and tear on all the joints and connections. Secondly, by doing the work on-site, you have your teak furniture pieces back and ready for use the next day. Lastly, we go to great lengths to ensure that your backyard will look as good as it did when we arrived, actually better because now your teak or deck will be like-new! Many of our customers ensure that they aren’t even home while we are working so that they can return to a transformed backyard.
You can certainly restore and maintain your outdoor teak furniture or hardwood deck yourself, just like you can change the oil in your car or wash your windows in your home. But there are three major items that keep most people from going this route: materials, method, and expertise. We obtain only the best penetrating sealers not available at traditional big-box retailers like Home Depot or Lowe’s. We also have developed methods that allow us to do most of our work in ¼ the time any homeowner would be able to do the same. Lastly, our crews have done these hundreds of times, so they know issues to look for and ways to ensure a quality finish that only come with being an expert.
Teak & Deck Professionals are ready to help you with regular maintenance for your outdoor deck, whether you choose teak, ipe, ironwood, managaris, redwood, or cedar for your decking material. We perform spot deck sanding after lightly cleaning the deck, then apply the right sealing methods to ensure that your wood is protected. We can offer you the best deck sealers available that will penetrate and protect your investment in your fine deck wood.
