Environmental conditions can dictate the type of finish and approach to Staining Gates you may choose to take. A stained finish can be very hard wearing and regulate the movement of moisture in and out of the wood.As well as enhancing the natural colours and grain of the wood.
The use of a micro-porous stains and paints is essential! This is a breathable finish that allows movement in and out of the material to help it regulate the moisture content with its environment. The question of why you paint or stain wood often arises by the idealists that just love the look of natural grain in wood. We’ll hardwood is the most durable timber for one,the grain sits very well with a lot of hardwoods when stained or painted and it will give the best all round results with a pair of timber gates. If left untreated outside the wood will quickly start to to weather and turn silver leading to eventual organic faults(splits checks etc)
Gates need to have the correct amount on from the start. Or you will be forever playing catch up over the early years of the gates life, leading to premature failure of the timber by allowing the weather in.
Mitech have a spray shop creating the ideal conditions to apply a factory spray finish that gives a high quality end result.
There are a wide range of colours with both paint and stain. Natural warm oaks, red mahoganies or matching in with a RAL colour that your already using . The choice is yours!
