I like
Tons of good info on what their different products can do plus some good tech support. Plus prices are way lower than others and just as good or better. Every one of theirs is amine free, no blush.
Some of the teak rail has cracks running down the length of the rail that would be no more than 1/16" inch wide. some voids are maybe 1/2 inch diameter. There are a vew areas where the teak has been worn down to the screw that used to be counter sunk and plugged. This is an area where I might try to build up the railing, although I might have a bonding problem and will probably not be able to build back the full 1/2 inch, but maybe at least cover the screw heads.
