Yes! Most of our finishing options include a custom colour match. Please allow extra lead time for custom colours. 

Film-Forming: This type of finish creates a physical barrier on the surface, protecting the wood from the elements and damage. Film forming finishes typically retain colour longer than penetrating stains but needs to be properly maintained to prevent flaking and cracking. 

Penetrating Finish: A durable finish where the stain soaks into the wood’s cellular structure to prevent water penetration. The finish will not last as long as a film forming but doesn’t have the same strict maintenance timeline as the finish simply fades instead of peeling. 

All wood is prepared for finishing by either being sanded or brushed. Sanding will smooth the surface, creating a nice even substrate – perfect for a modern look. 

Brushing applies a texture and highlights the wood grain, creating a rustic, reclaimed wood look.  

A third option is resawn, where the face of the wood is cut to create a fresh, but still rough, surface. Please note, not all products are eligible for resawing. 

When choosing colours for exterior applications, please keep the following in mind: 

  • Lighter colours will fade more quickly than darker colours.  
  • Clear exterior finishes do not provide any protection against UV damage and will weather the wood. 
  • For maximum protection, 3 coats of a darker colour are recommended.

Maintenance & Warranties Maintenance

Regular maintenance is required to protect the substrate and keep the finish looking new. 

For all exterior finishes, we recommend cleaning yearly with water and a mild cleaner like dish soap.  

  • Do not use a pressure washer. 
  • Do not use harsh chemicals. 

After a thorough cleaning, inspect the finish for any damage and spot re-finish if needed. For more detailed instructions, please refer to our Factory-Finishing Maintenance Guide.
