Natural timber cladding will always weather over time. For example, cedar boards will silver, but they can also age unevenly, which may not be the look you want for your home.

There are many ways to fix such a problem. The owners of this 20-year-old house chose to re-stain the exterior to give it a much more distinctive, even look. They specified Resene Waterborne Woodsman in Resene Bushtrack, which is an earthy blend of black, brown and green. For contrast, the bargeboards and window surrounds on the upper level are painted in Resene Double Pearl Lusta.

Resene Waterborne Woodsman is an Environmental Choice-approved waterborne stain. There is also a solvent-based stain available. Both are formulated to colour wood, while also highlighting the natural grain. They can be used on a wide variety of surfaces.

If a dark stain is to be used outside, the Resene Waterborne Woodsman range can be formulated with special Resene CoolColour pigment technology to reflect more of the sun's heat than a standard colour. This reduces stress and heat build-up in the coating and timber.
