maintenance

this is what we regard as the ongoing nurturing of the furniture to prolong its life.
it is a process we actively try and encourage you as the purchaser to undertake.
if however the extent of the work is too great and you would like our expertise we will quote to under take the work required or recommend an experienced contractor.
NOTE all maintenance products are available from our showroom or online.

maintenance process

  • oil all articulating joints on chairs
  • scrub timber with PRONATURE plant soap
  • scour and wax rust frames / scour galvanised frames
  • repaint painted frames and / or slats
  • NOTE: salt deposits that form on galvanised frames at the sea are difficult to remove.
  • we will advise further on inspection of the items.

renovation

this service is usually only necessary after long periods of neglect and is a comprehensive overhaul of the product to renew it completely.


renovation process

  • remove all wooden component from frame.
  • sandblast the metal frame if necessary (painted and galvanised frames with severe accumulation of salt deposit)
  • repair broken rivets and realign bent fatigued components.
  • replace all wooden components according to customers specification.
  • reassembling with brass or stainless steel fittings.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • we cannot paint or galvanise frames that have the rust finish.
  • painted frames are best – re-painted.
  • re-galvanising of existing galvanised frames is possible, but expensive, therefore it is not a process we recommend.
