Dark-coloured cladding looks right at home in a native bush setting, as this project illustrates.

The exterior of this house, built in the early 80s, originally featured a reddish-brown wood stain. Over many years, the finish had deteriorated to the stage where the cedar boards were also being affected.

When the house was renovated, much remedial work was carried out on the cladding, which was then finished in oil-based Resene Woodsman in Resene Crowshead. This solvent-borne wood stain enhances the look of the wood grain and is suited to both dressed and rough-sawn boards.


Resene marketing manager Karen Warman says Resene Woodsman normally requires minimal surface preparation and is easy to apply.

"This mould-resistant wood stain is also available in a waterborne version Resene Waterborne Woodsman, which is Environmental Choice-approved," she says. "Alternatively, you can choose Resene Waterborne Woodsman Cool Colour technology designed to reflect more of the sun's heat and reduce heat build-up in the coating and substrate."

Resene Woodsman is equally well suited to fences and garden furniture.
