Washing, prepping and stripping
The first part of the restoration process is to prepare the cedar for coating. Generally we wash the cladding with a specialised and technical process, ensuring that the cedar weatherboards are clear of any residual broken down stains or inferior coatings. We use eco friendly products that will not harm the environment you live in. We are also experienced in stripping the existing coatings off should your timber require a more vigorous process.
Stains are an effective way of providing a barrier to the UV and harsh New Zealand elements. The staining process involves applying two coats of a film forming product that provides a degree of oil penetration. The cedar stains are available in a number of colour tones to compliment the surrounding aspects of your home and achieve a fresh, modern look.
When selecting a penetrating wood oil to coat your cleaned timber, this is generally a one coat system. The wood oil deeply penetrates the cedar weatherboards to replace the natural oils lost and to seal and protect them from the elements. The translucent oils, colour tinted to achieve the desired look, still allow the beautiful aesthetics of the cedar weatherboards to shine through.
