Terrace, decking and garden furniture restoration

A very satisfying project to clean, repair and brighten up a large patio, adjoining decking area, and various garden furniture for a cottage near the New Forest. The teak needed a fairly serious amount of scrapping and sanding, before algae treatment, a few light repairs, and final sanding.  Underneath the verdigris the teak was actually in very good condition.  The terraces, both paving and hardwood, had not been cleaned for some time and both fairly uneven.  The 'after' photo here shows only some of the benefit - as the algaecide takes 2-3 weeks to properly clear the 'black spots' engrained in the soft stone slabs.

Teak garden furniture restored

A client recommended me to her Mum - who asked me to restore this iroko garden chair and table.  The chair had collapsed and needed structural repairs.  The table had faired better.  Both were scraped to remove rot and decayed surface wood, sanded, and treated with algicide.   For this I use a product called Boracol which is an industrial-grade but environmentally friendly algicide.  The underside and frame were then treated with hardwood oil to improve longevity, whilst the top surfaces lightly oiled to bring out the grain and beauty of this top quality hardwood. Sadly I only took 'after' photos of this one - but chair and table now returned to a very happy customer!
