Re-application of Dryden WoodOil at up to two years after second coat to the areas where the surface exhibits signs of losing capability to "bead water" or colourtone is faded principally northern exposed faces. This coat may be extended given better quality environmental conditions including shading, e.g. soffits.
The variety of building locality and weather conditions found in New Zealand means that in some cases recoating may be necessary within this two years.
Keep in mind that durability of water repellency and colourtone is proportional to the amount of WoodOil in the timber. Light application coats or thicker timbers will require additional coats to offer this durability.
Dryden WoodOil Clear (not colourtone) will silver and weather naturally. For ongoing preservation only WoodOil Clear, one coat should be applied up to every 5 years given appropriate initial coats.
Dryden WoodOil Slate colour may need less colourtone maintenance due to the tone being natural silvered when seasoned.
We recommend annual washing of the surface to remove surface contaminants (dust, pollen, etc) with clean water. This should also be done prior to any re-coats of WoodOil if in good maintenance. If for any reason maintenance has not been kept up a stronger wash may be required prior to re-coating with WoodOil.
