Repaint and renew

Don’t underestimate the importance of clean and tidy outdoor furniture. A dirty or weathered table is not going to improve the look of food put on it. A seat that leaves marks on guests clothes is, at best, not a good thing and at worst could lead to a request for compensation or bad reviews. Replacing old furniture is costly and often unnecessary when there are products available to repaint and renew existing outdoor furniture.

In most cases the preparation is a jet wash and a light sand but then choosing the right product for the job is often confusing. Is the furniture hardwood or softwood? What is the difference between paint for wood and metal? What is the best way to apply it and is it available in the colour or finish I want?

The guys at SML Paints and Coatings have been answering these questions for years and they say that, while it is a very clever marketing strategy, choosing a product just because it says it ‘does exactly what is says on the tin’ is not always the best way to get the best results. How often these days do you get a supplier that will talk through your project and suggest the most suitable product based on your particular circumstances? At SML they will ask not only what you are painting but how much time you have, when you need to have it finished and what your experience is. With this information then can then suggest a product that will give you the best results.

SML Paints and Coatings only supply paints from one manufacturer which means they know their products inside out. You may not have heard the names before but their decorative products are used to protect Scandinavian homes from extremes of weather and are well known is Scotland where only the best products provide suitable protection.
