FIVE to EIGHT YEAR - MAINTENANCE-FREE - 4 COAT FINISH
"We apply the mirror-coat finish so you don't have to."
Our customers are telling us that the Limberlost furniture they have purchased over the years is providing in excess of five to eight years of maintenance-free beauty and protection as a result of our exclusive 4-coat finishing process.
Please bear in mind that shade and people's tastes will vary. We are only repeating customer comments; this is in no way meant to be construed as a guarantee of the life of the finish. Our own porch swing has hung outside our showroom (for six years, as of August 2008). It has never been touched up, never been covered and never been brought inside since new. The swing remains in a condition that I am proud to display to my customers.
Any Benjamin Moore or Sico color is available for use on any product. To avoid any possibility of error it is necessary the provide us with all of the following information.
All non-standard finishes, such as paint, and coloured stains require additional cleaning of the equipment used in our spray finishing. This additional cleaning step is required for every coat of the non-standard finish. All this addition cleaning is imperative to avoid all possibility of color contamination between the requested non-standard color and our standard finishes. To cover the cost of the additional labor required for these additional cleaning steps an additional 8% paint surcharge is added to the standard cost of the piece for non-standard requests.
Maintenance (Standard Finish):
The standard finish on your product should last a minimum of 5 - 8 years without maintenance in direct unobstructed sunlight. (Much longer if used in shady conditions).
When the finish loses its glossy appearance, sand lightly with a 220 grit sandpaper (you are not trying to remove the old finish - just remove most of the remaining gloss).
Apply one or two coats of "Sikkens Cetol-1 Colour 078 Natural" using a pure bristle brush. (Never use a synthetic brush - for example, nylon - with an oil-based finish).
Allow 24 hours for drying between each coat and before use.
