Making wood last for the long term
Another important benefit of using products like WoodOil is the long life it gives to timber cladding. “It’s important that the oil actually get into the wood, and not just dry on the surface,” Pearson says. “It extends the service life and prevents cupping, warping or splitting.”
So with new timber products pre-coated in WoodOil, how long can you expect them to last?
“With normal site-specific maintenance, indefinitely,” he adds.
Not all of the work they do is for new builds; WoodOil is also used to spruce up older wood, breathing new life into it and giving it many more years of use. Pearson says that about 60% of their work is for new wood, while 40% is restoration and maintenance.
Customise for best results
Pearson notes that with a huge range of available colours (including customisable colour tones), people can use these products for cladding with any purpose. He says there is normally an even split in people using their products: half are architects and specifiers that understand the high quality that WoodOil provides, and the other half are people who might not understand the product, but have fallen in love with how it looks, with a flat, natural finish.
If your cladding needs to go the extra mile and look better than everything else on the block, you know where to go.
