Cedar Oiling, Staining & Painting

Complete Your Cedar Restoration With A Fine Finish

Oiling or staining cedar is essential for its long-term maintenance and preservation. This is usually done every 2-3 years for oil and every 5-7 for stain. Cedar is a natural wood that is rich in oils and resins, which give it its characteristic scent and resistance to decay and insects. However, these oils and resins can dry out over time, leaving the wood vulnerable to moisture, UV rays, and other environmental factors. This is why it is important to oil or stain cedar regularly to protect it from damage and ensure its longevity.

Cedar Oiling & Staining

One of the primary reasons for oiling or staining cedar is to protect it from moisture. Cedar is an excellent choice for outdoor applications, such as decking and siding, because of its natural resistance to decay and rot. However, prolonged exposure to moisture can still cause damage over time. Applying a protective oil or stain creates a barrier on the surface of the wood that repels water, preventing it from penetrating the fibers and causing rot or warping.

Another reason to oil or stain cedar is to protect it from UV rays. Cedar has a natural colour that ranges from light to dark brown, but prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause it to fade or turn grey. This is because UV rays break down the lignin in the wood, which gives it its natural colour. Applying a stain or oil with UV protection helps to prevent this damage and maintain the natural colour and beauty of cedar over time.

UV-protected stains and oil often incorporate a tinted colour. You can change the colour of your tint and give your home a whole new look. If our cedar technicians cannot water blast enough of the old tint off, we may suggest using a stripper, this helps to ensure that the stain penetrates the cedar while giving it an even coat of tint.

There are different colours of tints available, from natural to pitch black. Our cedar technicians will bring a colour chart with them and discuss your options based on your current colour and what would suit your home.
