EXTERIOR TIMBER JOINERY CARE AND PROTECTION

Exterior timber joinery is a premium product, which requires a level of protection to enhance the properties of the product.

The minimum protection is as follows:

  • All joinery items must be sealed on all 6(six) faces prior to installation including hardware penetrations.
  • Oil based systems only to be used. 3 (Three) coat system recommended. Paint for suitable timber finish – not oils.
  • The bottom and top of the sashes and doors must be sealed.
  • Appropriate flashing must be installed.
  • Joinery with wet plaster must have at least 2 (two) protection coatings prior to plastering.
  • Avoid dark colours, as they stain the timber.

Should these recommendations not be followed the warranty could become void.
