During winter it’s advisable to give a little extra care to your home’s exterior to prevent rot and rust. From decking and fences to gutters, gates and garage doors, there are many facets of the home prone to deterioration as a result of bad weather.
When treating timber surfaces, waterproofing and regular inspection is key over winter. Look out for peeling, flaking, discolouration, mould growth or greying as these are key signs of damage. Regular inspections will also ensure that any cracks are dealt with before spreading. Sikkens Cetol Gupa is a fast-drying filler and stopper for nail holes and wood cracks. Applying this will ensure that dry rot will not cause further damage.
Once cracks have been dealt with, it’s a good idea to coat the deck for protection against mould and rot. Sikkens Cetol BLX-Pro is a microporous, water-based finish that allows timber to breathe and repels unwanted moisture. It can be applied to decking, window frames, fences and any other external wooden surfaces. What’s more, the high-quality transparent coating accentuates the natural characteristics and colour of the timber for a beautiful finish.
