Once you’ve spent your money on the ideal wooden garden gate, you’ll want to protect it. This will make it last longer. At the same, it will retain its look. If you maintain one correctly, there’s no good reason why your gate shouldn’t last a lifetime.
Treating the timber
Many new garden gates undergo treatment to safeguard the timber against insect attacks and wood rot. Saying this, said treatments don’t supply overall protection against weathering. UV rays and weather erosion can deteriorate the efficiency of these treatments. Sooner or later, they will become ineffective. You should opt to treat your materials with a wood preservative. A top coat of varnish, paint, stain, or oil shall help too. Regardless of whether you’re using hardwood or softwood, you’ll be able to protect your goods for years.
Keeping the wood visible
You may want to keep the gate natural where the wood remains clearly visible. Our advice here would be to overcoat preservative treatments. Do so using decking oil or clear exterior wood oil. Products like these typically include a mixture of resins, waxes, and oils. They infiltrate the wood grain and provide protection against water ingress. A handful of these products include UV filters too. They aid you in keeping timber’s natural colour for longer.
