Proudly Servicing San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange County
Our process begins with 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 sterilizes the wood to kill any mold spores that may persist on the wood surface. Our biodegradable 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 sandpaper 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 it's 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 are 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 have to lead us to the best products available, and we are confident that we have a color that suits your desires. Occasionally, our clients request particular marine teak varnishes or even wood paint. We will happily adjust our restoration methods for these requests.

Restoring Weathered Teak Furniture
Clean, Restore & Protect Your Weathered Teak Back to Its Original Luster.
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.
Naturally, Brighten The Appearance Of Your Outdoor Furniture.
Homeowners have many options for Restoring their weathered teak and wood. With thousands of successful restorations and decades of experience Teak and Deck Professionals has the perfect cleaners, stains, and staining sealers with a proven process down to a science.
The type of wood you own combined with the climate and conditions your furniture is exposed to dictates how your wood should be treated and restored. This is why you may find dozens of products on the market, but many of them are a miss-match with your exact climate and wood needs. Teak & Deck Professionals has determined the best custom teak cleaners, brighteners, and teak wood sealers to use which are specifically formulated to be highly effective in the Southern California climate. These are professional grade and not found in big box home centers.
The process used to apply these products to produce the best results is more technical than one may initially perceive. How hot it is outside, sun exposure, humidity along with how much of each product to apply, and for how long are all nuances that an experienced wood restoration professional fully understands. That is why many well-meaning homeowners who attempt restoration projects come out with less than desirable results.
Teak Restoration (often called Teak Refinishing) by Teak and Deck Professionals is very affordable, you gain the assurance the results will be great and even better – it’s done quickly. See just a few of our many teak restoration project results below:
