TIMBER MAINTENANCE

-

To ensure that you get the most out of your timber windows and doors, we recommend maintaining them every once in a while. By doing this, it minimising the risk of your windows and doors becoming completely deteriorated, and ensures they’ll look great and operate seamlessly for years to come. Depending on where the windows and doors are located in the house, and if they have any covering from the sun and rain, will determine how frequently they need to be maintained. For the purposes of this, we make our recommendations on western facing windows, that aren’t covered by eaves or roofs. Timber Windows and Doors that are well maintained will last for years to come and give you plenty of enjoyment from them in the future.

 

For painted finishes, we recommend giving them a good wash down with warm soapy water, every twenty four months, then re coating them with paint every five years. To re coat them effectively, simply wash the windows down with warm soapy water, and once dry, give them a light sand taking off a thin layer of paint. Once the sanding is finish, blow them over with air to ensure all the dust is removed and go over them with either the original colour.

 

For stained finishes, we recommend giving them a good wash down with warm soapy water, every twenty four months. Once dry, give them a light sand and blow them over with air to ensure all the dust is removed, then, with a rag, apply the Binq Sikkens Window Stain to the areas that appear light, and let them dry four 12 hours. Once dry, with a light bristle paint brush, evenly apply one coat of Binq Sikkens Top Coat all over the windows, and allow do try for twelve hours.
