Taking care of timber
Timber for all purposes should be stored in a dry, clean and well-ventilated space which is free of moisture like a shed or garage. It is not advisable to store your timber in your new build as it can be subjected to moisture from appliances and building materials. It’s best stored on pallets off the floor space to avoid moisture which can cause warping.
When it comes to external woodwork it can naturally fade and discolour over time, under constant weathering. It can be freshened up by cleaning, sanding and re-finishing it. Summer is an ideal time to do this as the warm dry weather allows the paint to bond better with the wood, making for a more durable finish.
