Peeling patio furniture



(-----) February 24, 2008

My 1 year old patio furniture is peeling. It is made out of aluminum. The top layer is peeling and looks quite ugly. Is their someway it can be sandblasted or painted. This furniture sits near our pool which is we use salt instead of chlorine. I do no if salt has anything to do with it. Do you think the furniture can be saved. Thanks.

You didn't mention how old it is, Kathy. It should have lasted several years. The furniture can be sent for stripping, pretreatment, and powder coating. It is possible for you to repaint it yourself, of course, but I doubt that you will get useable adhesion if the manufacturer didn't.
