Most products we manufactured is using pressure treated / tanalised softwoods – a little information in understanding the preservative treatment
Pressure treatment is a process that’s forces chemical treatment preservatives into the timber when its under pressure in a chamber. The preservatives help protect the wood from outdoor elements, therefore the treatment is a desired service life, not a warranty/guarantee and its not waterproof. Green and white spots are common in pressure treated timber and can be brushed off easily.
As wood is a living product, it contains water and depending on the humidity in the air, this moisture is gradually released and /or absorbed as a results in the changes in volume, which could cause movement, splitting and or warping within the timber product as it expands and retracts naturally. Ourselves or our timber manufactures can not be held responsible, it’s a natural process.
Pressure treated softwood will initially have a green appearance that highlights the natural variations of the wood. Over time this will weather to an attractive natural honey brown colour before fading to a driftwood grey colour to our products as the wood is exposed to sunlight this is harmless, quite normal and natural looking. Ourselves or our timber manufactures can not be held responsible, it’s a natural process.
To enhance the appearance of the products apply a weather resistant, or weather proof protection finish. To maintain a modern natural look like a oil or wood preserver oil in a clear finish could be applied. Its provides deep penetrating protection to the wood against decay, mould and blue -staining fungi. Seek further advise on treatments available and always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
