New project completed!. (summer 2016) home near Edmonton, AB.
There is nothing that is as warm and inviting or as close to nature as a Log or Cedar sided home.
Cedar siding, though durable and able to maintain a good finish for a long period of time, does sometimes get damaged and it is certainly not completely immune to rot no matter how well it has been treated. Over time, cedar siding can become discolored and the surface degraded due to weather, dirt and various other wear and tear. These natural occurrences are quickly absorbed into unprotected wood causing it to soften and swell. The sun’s heat causes drying, which makes the wood shrink. These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, cause wood to warp, split, cup and crack.
Proper care must be taken to extend the lifespan of your investment and keep it looking beautiful.
Using environmentally friendly blast medias we remove old finishes from cedar siding and decks.
(The Media Blasting Process - eco-friendly media that are natural, none hazardous media and environmentally safe. This old stain stripping technology eliminates toxic cleaning chemicals.)
In the next step we sand the surface with Osborn Brush – (These buffing brushes are ideal for surface preparation after removing a finish by media blasting) and Palm / Finishing Sanders to ensure the finest finish.
We use the Cetol 1/23 on clear cedar siding and Sikkens Cetol DEK Finish 077 on the decks- Cetol DEK Finish is a high-performance, translucent satin finish for exterior decks. This alkyd high solids formulation offers optimum protection, ultimate durability and a beautiful furniture-like finish
Cetol 23 Plus is a premium, translucent topcoat for Cetol 1. The advanced alkyd resin with UV absorbers offers excellent durability and protection for siding and other vertical surfaces.
(My only complaint with this product is the cost, but you know, you do get what you pay for!) ;)
