Exterior Wood finishes

Exterior Wood finishes

Wood finish can prolong the beauty and longevity of your wood, however, no coating or finish can preserve wood forever. Good design is more important. We prefer breathable, penetrating oil finishes which are not 'film-forming'. Maintenance is as easy, just clean and reapply. These products don’t flake, peel, or crack so removing an old coating is never an issue. We will not sell you a water based clear-coat (plastic coating) for exterior use. These products inevitably fail and peel, involving great expense and labour to remove and reapply. Good design and a breathable finish is our recommendation for outside. If you have your heart set on a water base finish (Polyurethane) we do carry a variety formulated for the chemically sensitive.
