					?Doing your own patio furniture repairs can certainly make better sense, because you
will be able to stretch your money and give the patio furniture the appropriate
attention it deserve. Here are several noteworthy tips you can safely try when you do
your own patio furniture repair.

Don't you just love to loll around on a comfortable chaise? However, to stay safe and
secure, you should check if your chaise is an old furniture model. Does it have a
headrest, which can be adjusted into various positions? What makes these adjustments
possible to perform are the headrests' ratchets or claws.

However, the downside to this convenience is that repeated adjustments will weaken
the support of the headrest, causing a collapse without any warning. You could get
your fingers crushed between the headrest and the back of the chaise. How do you go
about repairing this piece of furniture?

Patio Furniture Repair Tip #1

First, check if the headrest wobbles, it should not. Then check the screws that keep the
ratchet together. Are these chipped, rusting, or worse broken? Buy replacement parts.

Patio Furniture Repair Tip #2

If the frame wallowed out holes, you can weld these holes and then drill these tight.

Patio Furniture Repair Tip #3

Even if the ratchet is not worn out, it may have become inflexible, have a coarse or
rough feel to it. In which case the right repair tip is to remove the rivets and purchase
new ones or, better yet, put in durable steel screws.

Patio Furniture Repair Tip #4

Do your vinyl straps look worn and damaged? If the answer is yes, this is because of
the normal wear and tear use, as well as commercial chemicals, the juice and saps of
your plants and shrubs, and strong cleaning chemicals. How do you go about to repair
this particular problem?

Here is how you can restore the clean look of your vinyl straps. For vinyl straps with
not too stubborn stains, you can mix a 20% household-cleaning agent, with 80% water,
and make sure to mix these two ingredients well. When the mixture is bubbly and
sudsy, you can dip a scrub into the mixture, after which you can apply the mixture to
the vinyl straps.

Finally, be sure to conduct regular inspections of your patio furniture so you can
perform patio furniture repair while the need is still minimal.
