Looking to make some changes to your garden but not sure where to start? Before forking out lots of money on new garden furniture or a new summer house, think about what you’ve already got! With Owatrol’s Solid Colour Stain you can make significant changes and really give the garden a face lift without breaking the bank.
What will a coloured wood finish look like?
Solid Colour Stain is available in 52 different shades so there’s plenty of choice when thinking about the finished look you’re after.
Using SCS to revive your garden furniture
Owatrol’s Solid Colour Stain is incredibly easy to use and it gives you peace of mind for the future as it’s guaranteed against peeling or flaking for 15 years on vertical surfaces and 5 years on horizontal surfaces. To apply it, you first need to ensure that your wood is clean and free of surface contaminants – to do this you could use Net-Trol, our wood cleaner and colour restorer. This will also bring back the original colour of your wood surface – bonus! Then apply your chosen shade of SCS in wet-on-wet applications (meaning you shouldn’t let it dry between coats) until the wood is completely saturated. This is what gives SCS it’s staying power – it protects the wood from within, rather than leaving a film on the surface so it moves with the wood and doesn’t crack.
SCS provides lasting protection against damage caused by moisture and weathering and it’s easy to maintain with simple maintenance coats every couple of years – no sanding and stripping! Although it may seem more pricey than other products, it provided unrivalled performance and it’s staying power means you’ll save money in the long term (as well as hours of work!) and you’ll get a professional finish. Besides, it’s definitely going to be cheaper than that new set of garden furniture you’d seen in your local garden centre!
