A teak deck loses its strength over the years. A layer of washed out wood fibers remains on the surface. Such a deck dries slowly and leads to a faster loss of substance. With a bolted teak deck, plugs become a problem over time. They wear out or lose their ability to hold on. In this way the screw connection is exposed and unprotected. A leaky threaded connection can sometimes irreparably damage the fiberglass-reinforced plastic or plywood deck under the teak.
If your teak deck shows signs of wear and tear, you must react quickly, as once the grout has peeled off the wooden side surfaces of the poles, rainwater can penetrate under individual deck poles and cause considerable damage.
There is a solution – a timely teak deck renovation
A professional teak deck renovation is a challenging but also very worthwhile measure to increase and maintain the value and longevity of your yacht. Our team strives to renovate teak decks in all shapes and designs. We also developed a method of re-routing the deck joints so that the joints don’t widen. In this case, the presence of wood substance with a thickness of at least 8 mm is an important prerequisite for the teak deck renovation.
The teak deck renovation we carried out on Mallorca includes:
- Remove the old grout
- Sanding the teak deck
- Dismantling of all fittings
- Exchanging individual bars
- Renewing deck screw connections
- Potting the deck with a sealant
- Fine tuning and fitting assembly
Each individual fitting is thoroughly cleaned by hand with cotton swabs and special cleaning agents. The assembly of cleaned parts requires the knowledge and experience that our employees have.
If you have any questions, just contact us in any of the ways available. We are happy to provide you with all the information you are interested in and to help you so that your yacht will serve you for many years to come.
