Wood Still Lookin' Good the Way it Should...

We were finally able to get our bi-annual maintenance coat of Cetol on the exterior teak the other day.  A mere 4 months late! The weather in Florida this time of year is often temperamental, and afternoon storms are the norm. This makes the summer weather a little more bearable but awful if you need a full day of sunshine.  We're really pleased with the way Cetol has held up as we haven't been the most diligent in its upkeep.  Cetol recommends that a maintenance coat be applied once every 6 months in the tropic southern sun, and this has not been the first time that we've been tardy.  The only thing we've done aside from the maintenance coats has been small touch-ups, where the finish has been nicked, and this is a simple matter of feathering the edges and applying touch up Natural Teak Cetol to it.  It's been almost 2 years since we've first applied it, and I still think it looks darn good.  What do you think?

  1. Beautiful. I love the look of varnished wood. I don't care how much work people say it is.

    The before and after in the other post was pretty nice to see the difference. The Cetol looks a lot like the Epifanes that I've used on my boats handrails. I like how it brings out the grain.
