Western Red Cedar  -  Decor Series

Pre-Coated Finishing Recommendations

 

For either Internal OR External Applications

The “Finishing and Coating” section of our web site details the “Custom Coating” service that we have to offer. Through this service we can apply virtually any coating product and include every conceivable colour option, however we have found that the most popular coating medium and colour range for Western Red Cedar fall within a fairly narrow band.
 

In some instances, depending on the mix of profile and colour, minimum order quantities may apply.

 

Penetrating Oils

A more natural looking finish – easily maintained and recoated – ideal for external claddings, ceilings, soffits and internal wall finishes to more formal areas where human contact is negligible.

Penetrating Oils - The Application Process

The application of our penetrating oil finish starts with a finely sanded board. The oil is applied to face, back and edges in one pass through state of the art automatic spray equipment. The factory applied coating of the oil to all faces and edges greatly contributes to the long-term stability of the timber. Cut ends are the only part of the product which may require on-site attention during the installation phase.

A further coat on-site following completion of the installation is optional. Additional coats may be chosen depending on the depth of colour pigmentation that may have been selected.

The images above show the range of CUTEK CD50 oil coating colours which are available in our standard range. All colour samples portrayed have been applied to a random range of Western Red Cedar and the natural characteristics of Cedar’s light to dark colour tones can be seen. It is important to acknowledge that this aspect of colour variation is naturally inherent in the application of any translucent finishing material applied over almost any timber specie.

Colour accuracy is often compromised when digital images are displayed on different viewing platforms or reproduced on printed material.

Samples of all options are readily available and we strongly recommend you closely consult these before reaching a final decision on colour.

 

Our "Custom Coating" Service is able to apply most colours from most coating manufacturers

should your specification call for that.
