Cedar Door Stains
All our cedar doors are available au naturale or stained. As cedar is natural products, colour variations will occur on every garage door. We do not recommend Dark Stains/pains on doors which face the sun.
Our Cedar Sectional Doors are factory pre-coated with CD50 Timber Protection Oil, designed to meet our extreme environmental conditions. CD50 will not crack and peel, and contains water-repelling properties that prevent the absorption of unwanted moisture.CD50 dries clear on surfaces exposed to light will protect timbers but will silver with age. CD50 applied in colour tones help maintain & complement timber character and colour giving a natural appearance.
Cedar Door Maintenance
Please note that as cedar is a natural product it requires treatment to maintain its finish. A coatCD50 Timber Protection Wood Oil should be applied a minimum of six weeks out to 3 months subsequently after installation; this coat can be applied in clear or colour toned. Re-application of CD50 will be required when the surface exhibits signs of wear (ie, is unable to bead water) or the colour tone is faded. Keep in mind that durability of water repellancy & colour tone is proportional to the amount of CD50 in the timber. This is generally not required every year but only as and when necessary.
Cedar Door Quirks
Please also note that doors are not guaranteed to have identically matched patterns or colouring, though we strive to produce attractive and consistent finishes on our Timber Doors. With timber doors, some movement may occur naturally.
