UV-Protection-Oil 420 from Osmo UK has been applied to a café in Cheshire to rejuvenate the exterior cladding ahead of the busy season and enhance the natural character of the wood.
Yorkshire-based professional painter and decorator Rob Greenwood was contracted to revive the exterior cladding on The Boathouse Café in Tattenhall Marina. The wood cladding had weathered by the UV rays, destroying the lignin in wood. It required an upgrade – one which would improve the aesthetics of the building, but also protect the wood going forwards.
Rob used a 2-inch flat brush to apply two coats of UV-Protection-Oil to the cladding, using around 10 litres in total.
Commented Osmo, “The product has provided a clear, satin finish that does not crack, flake, peel or blister. It will maintain the wood’s natural colour and slow the greying process by 12 times in comparison to untreated wood. It contains biocides to protect against algae, mildew and fungal attack”.
