This is some furniture that we did not do that I came across this week. It was refinished within the last 2 years by another company and the finish is already beginning to peel off. We could clearly see that the other company did not sandblast the old finish off before they powder coated.
This is why we always take the time to do the job right and completely sandblast the old finish off before prepping and applying a new finish. Your new finish is only as good as the prep work that is done underneath it. We have seen a lot of work from other companies where they have either did not sandblasted at all, or have “fast blasted” the old finish. This means they sand blasted the old finish just enough to rough it up, but not remove it. This will often result in a finish that looks good on delivery, but will always have adhesion issues in the very near future.
This is why we are able to warranty all of our finishes that we do. Make sure if you are going to spend the money that you choose a company that will do the work right!
His is another designer set of Brown Jordan cast aluminum patio furniture that we restored for a customer in Bonita Springs. Heavy cast aluminum frames like this will last a lifetime and are well worth restoring over replacing. We sandblast the old finish entirely off in order to ensure perfect adhesion of the new powder coat finish, before replacing all of the glides and delivering the furniture back to the customer.
This was a very nice set of cast aluminum / sling outdoor furniture that we sandblasted, powder coated, and made new slings for in Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs. Heavy cast aluminum like this will last multiple lifetimes, and is well worth restoring vs. the cost of buying new.

Here is a designer set of Pavilion sling patio furniture that we sandblasted, powder coated, and reslung for a customer here in Naples, FL. We se a lot of this patio furniture at homes and high end condos. It is always in great shape, just in need of a fresh powder coat finish and a new sling.
