Wood Care and Protection | Wood finishes and coatings

We love the beauty of wood but is vitally important to care for it. In this category we showcase some of the best wood care products on the market. This includes specialist wood coatings, oils, waxes, wood stains, varnishes, and full wood paint systems.

Wood Stains | Oils for timber care | Wood Varnish

The type and species of timber you have will influence the decoration or coating you use. Some timbers take to certain finishes better than others. Used externally some softwoods can be resinous and cause issues with the decoration process and on-going maintenance.

Period of maintenance and time between re-coating is also often a determining factor when choosing a finish. This is often determined by the decorating product manufacturer guidelines. Generally oils, waxes, varnishes and other clear finishes require re-coating more often whereas stains, traditional primer, undercoat and top coat systems will last much longer. Water based products are easy to apply, dry quickly and easy to clean up afterwards. Traditionally these have been inferior to oil/solvent based products but with the advances in technology and product development water based products are a very effective solution - Learn more https://www.wooduchoose.com/finishing-and-decorating-wood/
