Whether you have a wooden deck or a concrete patio, our experts apply effective waterproofing techniques and products. We assess the condition of your deck, address any existing issues, and apply appropriate waterproofing coatings for long-term durability and moisture resistance.

Oil finish

Our standard finish for oak and walnut tops is to finish with Mylands finishing oil.

  • Pros: keeps the natural feel of the wood, easy to apply, easy to top up/refresh, can spot repair, food safe, can add colour pigments to lighten/darken, inexpensive.
  • Cons: will water stain more easily than other finishes, will wear over time (needs maintenance over the years).

Polyurethane finish

Customers can apply a poly finish onto any solid wood at home.

  • Pros: fairly easy to apply with a brush, can buy different finishes (satin, gloss etc), inexpensive, very robust.
  • Cons: it is possible to over apply and distort the shape of the wood, it will take away some of the natural look and feel of the wood, cannot spot repair.

Lacquer finish

We can spray a lacquer finish onto any of our solid wood desk tops.

  • Pros: good level of water resistance, very smooth application with our spray gun, limited colour alteration.
  • Cons: hard to apply, cannot spot repair (will need to be sanded back to apply a different finish), can wear over time, it will take away some of the natural look and feel of the wood.
