Important Use, General Care & Maintenance of Natural Timber Products
Timber is a natural product and will age & sometimes react adversely to normal changes in weather conditions. Failing to correctly seal timber on all 6 sides is likely to dramatically accelerate undesirable distortion & weathering effects in timber that would usually occur naturally over time, including but not limited to cracking, splitting, checking, cupping, bow, spring, mould inc. black spot mould and others. For this reason it is important to protect timber with a high quality paint, oil or other sealant and regularly maintain this protection thereafter according the manufacturer's instructions. Timber must always be stored in a dry location and must be sealed prior to or immediately after the timber is installed. When cutting treated timber it is important to reseal all cut ends with an approved timber preservative such as Tanalised EnSeal (or equivalent) that at least matches the hazard rating of the timber. This includes but is not limited to cuts, notches, drill holes and rebates. Treated timber must be used in conditions appropriate to its hazard rating. Resin may bleed from timber and to minimise the effect of this it is advisable to use a quality primer and paint in light colours. It may be necessary to recoat as required. Using dark coloured paints or stains with a Light Reflective Value (LRV) less than <30 may exacerbate weathering issues particularly cracking and checking.
