Restoring Timber Garden Furniture Coatings.

Most Timber Garden Furniture coatings are coated with either Wood Oils or an inferior D.I.Y woodstain from new that do not quite do what it says on the Tin.

As time goes by, these inferior coatings wear off, thus your expensive garden furniture will be exposed to UV Radiation, Freezing Temperatures, High Moisture Saturations and Airborne Pollution etc. these weather elements will cause the coatings to erode if not attended to promptly.

Before you can restore your Garden Furniture coatings, it is very important to first identify the furniture’s existing degrading finish to determine the correct way to remove it.

Some degrading Wood Oils and D.I.Y. Woodstains will simply “Pressure Wash” off the surface, others are a little more stubborn and may need mechanical or hand sanding with the appropriate grade Abrasive Paper or a mild Chemical Strip with the added assistance of a “Pressure Washer” that should do the job.

Remmers OW-815 Special Waterborne Water Repelling Coating.

Remmers Coatings Germany have developed a product called OW-815 a Special Water Repelling Product for Decking that doubles up to allow the end user to coat most Garden Structures made from Timber, this product alleviates the need to keep on coating as with the inferior existing Wood Oils etc. “unless of course you enjoy the tedious job of preparing and recoating these items on a regular basis!!”
