What kind of metal do you use?
Our reclaimed metal mostly comes from the sheetmetal of old cars and trucks from the American 1960's through the 1980's. This steel sheetmetal is thick and it bends and welds very well. Compared to European or Japanese cars of that same period in time, these American automobiles had really bad quality paint which didn't weather well over the years. This patina and its 40+ year story is what Weld House tries to capture and repurpose in the form of modern steel furniture. The "new" steel we use is still comprised of 85% recycled content and usually comes from California steel mills.
What kind of metal finish do you use?
We use a high-gloss clear coat on our reclaimed sheetmetal table tops that is especially formulated to aggressively bond to raw metal. Traditional automotive clear coats do not stick to raw metal. The patina spots found on our reclaimed metal furniture is essentially exposed metal so we sourced a niche clear coat that has the high-gloss shine of automotive clear coupled the durable characteristics of an industrial top coat.
Our steel tubing and hot roll steel is often stained with either a black or brown finish and sealed with a wax sealer that has a satin, natural luster. The wax coating can be re-applied on an ongoing basis to keep it protected and fresh, especially after a move when furniture often gets rubbed and scratched. We try to build furniture that can be touched up and keep looking great for generations.
How do I take care of my automotive metal table top?
Keep your reclaimed sheetmetal table top looking great by applying your favorite brand spray wax coupled with a micro-fiber cloth.
