Teak furniture owners looking for Teak Refinishing San Diego have several choices available to them and all have their pros and cons. We, of course, are partial to professional care of teak furniture but we do realize each choice is the right fit for a certain type of consumer. No matter the choice of who refinishes your teak furniture, you will need to be sure that several steps are completed.
Major Steps for Teak Refinishing San Diego
When teak furniture turns gray and weathered from the elements, only a complete teak refinishing process will bring it back to life. The steps to be completed include cleaning the wood to get rid of all dirt, contaminants and oxidation, sanding the wood to restore smoothness, brightening the wood to restore the natural ph-level of the wood and open the grain to best accept teak sealer, and sealing the wood with a specialized, made-for-teak sealer that will penetrate the wood yet provide protection in a natural looking tone.
Here is a brief summary of the choices available for Teak Refinishing San Diego:
- Do-It-Yourself (DIY) – Many homeowners feel comfortable cleaning, sanding, brightening and sealing their own teak furniture. This is a good choice for those who have the time, materials and space to do the job right. One caution with Teak Refinishing – budget one weekend of outdoor time per every 6 pieces of teak that you wish to refinish in a complete manner.
- Hire a Handyman – This can be an effective way to keep down costs as handymen are always willing to tackle any type of job they can get hired for. The flip side is that most handymen do not have access to, or the funds, for the type of materials needed for proper teak refinishing. They also may be not be incented to take the time necessary to do the job right. If a handyman has teak-specific references and you are comfortable trusting your expensive teak furniture to him, then this can be a cost-effective option
- Hire a teak refinishing specialist – While there are only a very few teak refinishing specialists in San Diego, they can be trusted to do the job right the first time and take the utmost care of your prized teak furniture. Their service will be quick (usually one to two days), their cost will be appropriate (about 20% as compared with replacing with new) and their trustability factor will be high as they should have literally hundreds of teak customers to whom you can be referred.
