TREATING YOUR TIMBER.

The sun is cedar’s worst enemy, it will dry the timber out, fade the colour and eventually the timber will start to crack. We have unbelievably strong UV rays in the Southern Lakes area and it is essential to apply protection to your cedar. Applying oil or stain is the equivalent of putting a moisturiser/sunscreen on.

The simple fact is, cedar is a timber that requires maintenance. No matter what you cannot get around this in our area, luckily a little bit of TLC is easy, affordable and effortless. This will keep your home protected from the elements and looking great. 

We can tailer make a Cedar Maintenance program for you so that you will never have to worry about your home losing its original beauty.

SIMPLE THINGS TO LOOK FOR TO INDICATE WHETHER YOUR CEDAR NEEDS TREATMENT.

1. Colour fading

2. Watermarks

3. Black mould

4. Silvering.

5. If your timber is dry, splitting or cupping.
