What Products Should You Use Where?
Most homes have wood of some sort in their garden, be it decking, door and window frames, sheds, cladding and fencing. Wood has the ability to shrink, crack, peel and discolour – all things which will leave the surface looking old and tired. External wood requires a finish to provide UV protection in the summer and protection against wind, rain, frost and snow in the winter months.
Here, we provide you with useful details on some of our most popular exterior finishes.
- Suitable for Decking
It is important to consider the safety element when wooden decking has been installed in the garden. Anti-Slip Decking Oil will provide a safe outside environment all year round by increasing the durability of the surface, protecting it against mould, algae and fungal attack, and reducing the risk of slipping. The decking oil will penetrate deeply into the wood pores and fibres, providing a long-lasting level of protection from within the wood.
Sun Protection for Wood
- Suitable for cladding, summer houses, fences, windows, doors and furniture
UV-Protection-Oil is essential for exterior wood as it provides 12 times the UV protection in comparison to untreated wood. Designed to protect, maintain and restore all types of wood from the effects of the environment, it not only protects the wood surface, but also enhances the natural look of the wood and will prevent damage. It is moisture regulating and reduces swelling and shrinking of the wood. This product overcomes the need for a heavy stain or a flaking varnish to keep them looking natural.
It’s Only Natural
- Suitable for cladding, summer houses, fences, doors, windows, carports and decking
Natural Oil Woodstain provides a decorative and protective finish for all exterior wood. It offers a high-quality finish which allows the wood to breathe and reduces the risk of swelling and shrinkage. Acting as a protection against all weather conditions, it prevents mould, algae and fungal decay as well ensuring the wood doesn’t crack, flake, peel or blister. Osmo also offers an ‘effect’ range to provide attractive silver-metallic tones. Meeting modern architectural demands, these finishes are designed to give the natural greying effect, added silver metallic pigments.
