Cornhole Board Refurbishment

Let us help bring your cornhole boards back to life

Cornhole Board Repair

Besides affordable rentals of cornhole and other games, and creating custom boards for your business or with sports logos, we also help folks bring old sets of cornhole back to life with our cornhole refurbishment services.

If you have a moldy old set of cornhole, or your set has a scratch or water damage, we can help. We will take our time to sand, fill, paint and seal the baords back up to get them as close to 100% as we can. It might not always be possible to get them perfect, but if you are looking for someone with an eye for detail to get the boards back into playing shape, we got you.

Pricing for cornhole board repair and refinishing depends on the amount of damage and work needed, but most of these services run between $50-$150. If you send us an email with some pictures of the damage, and a brief description of what you want we will send you a free quote back within a day or two.

What is the Repair Process?

Cornhole repair is tricky because with every job there is a point where repair no longer makes sense. Most cornhole boards are created using 2×4 wood to create the frame and legs, and then have plywood on top which is generally 1/2″ or 3/4″(for example all of TLG’s custom and new boards are made with 1/2″ thick wood).

Plywood can get waterlogged and damaged if left in the rain or in a damp room, which causes damage like in our example below. Sometimes we are able to repair the plywood as outlined below, but sometimes we cannot which would be replacing the top board enitrely and completely redoing any artwork that was on top. We are generally able to handle any type of repair request and will give a fair estimate to repaair, but also let you know if it would be more economical to just buy a new set. See an example process below:

Step 1: Clean Mold and mildew from boards.

Many times with old boards left out in the elements, mold or mildew will form on boards, especially underneath where it might be laying flat on the ground with no sun or air movement. This is important to throughly clean off with bleach solution, and then to sand so as to remove any remaining material and chemicals.

Step 2: Repair underlying layers of Plywood as possible 

The next step in the process is to use a bonding agent to try and bring the rotten layers of plywood back together. Water causes the glu to separate and we place glue in between the plies and then “sandwich” them down and hold in place with tape or a clamp. 

Step 3: Sand excess or rotten material away & wood filler.

Once we have attempted to repair the existing structure of the plywood, we will begin sanding with a power sander to remove rotten material, flaking layers and any damaged paint. Then we will fill in the holes and removed material with wood filler, and then let dry. That is followed by more sanding and filling until the structure is as smooth as possible. 

Step 4: Paint/Decals

Now that we have gotten the plywood prepared for paint, we can begin the process of restoring the finish and artwork on the boards. We are no Rembrandt, but we take our time and have a lot of experience in painting cornhole boards. We will tape around existing art that is in good shape (such as the circle on this set) and replace other parts that are missing (such as lines on the bottom of example set that were lost during sanding).

Step 5: Polyurethane Sealant

Once the boards are painted and dry, we then will apply multiple layers of spar urethane – generally we use water based urethane with many layers, but when water protection is more important than appearance we will use oil based for a thicker seal. Once that is dry the boards are ready to use!
