Untreated timber cladding will naturally weather over time, developing a silver or grey hue. While this can be a beautiful aesthetic, it is not always desired. At Russwood, we offer a range of coated timber cladding options to give you the flexibility to choose the finish that best suits your project vision and preferences. Read on to find out more about our SiOO:X, Woca Oil and Teknos paint systems.
