Some antique garden benches have been fully restored by shot blasting, re-painting and re-slatting. Others have had minimal restoration ie. cleaned and re-touched.
We use Iroko wood for restored benches. Iroko is a hardwood, similar to teak. It is perfectly suited to long term outdoor use and will quickly weather to a beautiful silvery grey colour.
We use Hammerite metal paint, in traditional colours to restore metalwork. This gives up to 8 years protection from rust.
We use Farrow & Ball Exterior Wood Paint in traditional colours to restore woodwork.
All garden benches can be delivered within mainland UK. However, if you prefer, you can collect from us in Sheffield, South Yorkshire (by appointment only).
