Now how do I keep it that way,at least for as long as possible.
Snappy says they have a clear non darkening sealer, good for maybe a year...but they don't sell it in the US.
Snappy in the US says to try a Semco product. I's seen some Semco before and I don't like the bleached out look. I'm skeptical.
Where the heck can I buy the Snappy sealer, or something that won't darken the teak,anybody know?
Some experianced advice would be appreciated.
Picture says it all I think - Semco.
We typically get a full season from one application, but have not now treated for two seasons.
All we do in between is wash with freshwater and cover over (does not keep totally dry - just shades and keeps the worst off) late July to early May when we are back in the real world.
Definitely needs another coat when we return next year (some areas looking just a little grey), but that only takes a couple of hours.
We use 'Naturaltone' at the moment. Only thing I don't like is that the black caulking colours a little. When we eventually strip to re-do in a few years time, we will try 'Cleartone' (about half the colour/pigment).
Hope that helps,
