Silva Timber, one of Owatrol’s trusted distributors, recently featured a great case study on their website showcasing their Western Red Cedar in partnership with Owatrol’s Solid Colour Stain.
This was a really interesting project for a DIYer transforming an ugly air raid shelter into a beautiful garden building and I think you’ll agree that it looks amazing.
Owatrol Solid Colour Stain (S.C.S)
He wanted a solid colour finish for his cladding and so naturally chose Owatrol’s Solid Colour Stain for this purpose. He was pleased with it’s 15 year guarantee against peeling and flaking on vertical applications such as his and was able to choose from the 52 different shades – we like his choice!
Solid Colour Stain is extremely easy to use and can simply be applied in 2 coats. It gives an opaque matt wood finish which provides superb, long-lasting protection from the damage caused by moisture and UV rays whilst maintaining a rich finish. With so many different shades to choose from it’s easy to find the one that’s perfect for you and with our guarantee against peeling and flaking for 5 years on horizontal surfaces such as decking and 15 years on vertical surfaces such as cladding it really is great value for money. Maintenance is minimal with recoating only needed every few years – sometimes even less frequently depending on the location of your project.
So there you have it! We hope this post on an air raid shelter upcycled with SCS interesting. If you have any other advice or top tips, please feel free to leave them in the comments below. We love hearing from you!
