As leaders in the industry, their outdoor furniture has brought life and comfort to thousands of homes with lounge chairs, tables, and several other products. Though Tropitone creates durable pieces, all outdoor furniture is susceptible to damage over the years from every day living. This guide will discuss the benefits of restoring your patio furniture as well as The Southern Company’s process of professional Tropitone patio furniture repair.
Reasons for Tropitone Patio Furniture Repair
There are a variety of factors that can lead to the deterioration of Tropitone furniture that can be difficult to prevent.
After extended periods of use, slings can become weak and unsupportive or even tear. This leads to discomfort and defeats the purpose of a relaxing lounge chair.
There are a few things that can occur to a chair frame including rust and fading as well as weld, bolt, and rivet damage. A damaged frame will lose it’s ability to hold weight and eventually lead to broken furniture.
Anyone who eats on their patio is well aware of the potential for stains on their furniture. Stains can come from spilled food and drink, sunscreen, cleaning chemicals, grass, dirt, and several other elements. It’s important to clean spills as soon as they occur, but sometimes you’re unable to remove them yourself.
The Benefits of Professional Tropitone Patio Furniture Repair
Since outdoor furniture damage is often inevitable, it’s important to know that you have options. It’s absolutely not always necessary to replace your pieces and there are several reasons professional Tropitone patio furniture repair is the best choice.
Economically responsible—High-quality brands like Tropitone are an investment. You’re paying for pieces that are meant to be used for decades and they are priced as such. Instead of overspending by replacing your damaged furniture, repair and restoration allow you to have show-room-ready furniture for a fraction of the cost of a new collection.
Environmentally friendly—According to the EPA, 9.8 million tons of furniture is discarded every year, making up 4.1% of household waste. This substantial amount of waste leads to rapidly growing landfills, a significantly negative environmental impact. We are all aware of the benefits of “reduce, reuse, recycle”, however furniture is the least recycled category of household items. Instead of tossing away pieces that still have life left in them, repair and restore them to like-new without adding more waste to landfills.
Guaranteed results—Professional furniture repair and restoration is the absolute best option for old pieces. Though you may think it’s smart to do it yourself, this can lead to improper repairs, poor-quality materials, and even health hazards due to complex and dangerous methods of refurbishment. A professional and experienced furniture repair company like The Southern Company is equipped to handle a wide variety of damage. Our results are guaranteed so you don’t have to take a chance on DIY repair which could lead to wasted money, time, and effort.
The Process of Professional Tropitone Patio Furniture Repair
Professional furniture repair is a careful process that involves several steps performed by expert craftsmen.
Thorough inspection and disassembly—The first part of furniture repair and restoration is a comprehensive inspection of the piece in order to identify all necessary steps. A technician will examine welds, bolts, rivets, the frame, and the fabric in order to find all damage the piece has incurred. Once inspected, the piece is then disassembled to prepare it for repair.
Sandblasting—After disassembly, the frame is then sandblasted by professionals in order to strip the paint and finish and remove all contaminants like rust, oils, and dirt. This prepares the frame for a new finish and powder coat that is more durable and attractive.
Finish and powder coat—Once stripped, a new finish chosen by the customer is applied. We have over 25 colors to choose from that will match any desired aesthetic. Then, a powder coat made of high-quality resin melted with additives is electrostatically applied in order to increase durability and shine.
Oven curing—In order to complete the frame, it is cured in a high-temperature oven, hardening the coating and finish. This process increases the frame’s longevity and beauty.
Custom sling—Once the frame is complete, a new sling is cut to perfectly fit the piece. We carry over 125 different fabrics and colors, so customers can customize their furniture as they prefer. Our slings are double-stitched with GORE TENARA thread which is resistant to rips, mold, UV light, and dry rot.
Installation—After designing and cutting the new sling, our experts carefully install it with the proper tension to ensure comfort and durability.
