Please Note: Timber is a living product and will eventually need replacing. Although the wood preservative used in the pressure-treatment process is of the highest quality eco-friendly preservative to protect timber from insect attack and rot, it doesn’t protect timber from the effects of weather. UV light is responsible for most damage to exposed wood because it changes or destroys the wood’s lignin, a component of wood that hardens and strengthens the cell walls. In more scientific terms this process is called photo-oxidation. Without additional protection UV rays from the sun will weather timber changing the colour to silvery grey. It is also recommended to keep all vegetation at least 24 inches away from wood surfaces to allow for adequate ventilation and drying out of these surfaces when wet. Moisture will negatively affect the lifespan and performance of a timber product, so it’s essential to add a high-quality protective water-repellent coating to our product to get the best possible life span. This is best undertaken with a solvent-based treatment during the summer months, so that it can soak into the dry wood. Clean the wood surfaces to remove all foreign materials from the wood prior to the application of an exterior finish system. The overall performance of even the best finish system is dependent upon proper surface preparation and application technique. A wide range of wood treatment products are available on request and at our showroom. The timber colour may vary dependant on the timber and chemical protection used.
