Here is the completed teak deck. Our team removed all the contaminated, failing caulk and re-cut the seams. They applied Teakdecking Systems SIS440 caulk and sanded the teak deck back. It is now as good as new.
This is an image of the latest teak deck under repair by the True North Marine team. Failing caulk is being removed and the seams are being routed to increase the depth from 2 mm to 7 mm. Teakdecking Systems SIS440 will be applied next before the deck is sanded up to look as good as new. More images to follow…..
True North Marine’s regrooving service means that the life expectancy of your teak deck is almost doubled. Many teak decks are constructed using a rebate system where the teak planks are pushed together and the caulk seam is half the depth of the teak. This means that once the teak deck has been sanded a few times the seam disappears.
True North Marine’s exclusive tooling system can cut through the teak to create a new seam which is then recaulked with Teakdecking Systems SIS440 caulk. This is an affordable and quick alternative to replacing the whole teak deck.
