FACTORY TREATMENTS SPECIFICATION
 
 
Factory treatments:
 
Painted Windows and Doors
Advantages:
 
  • We can paint your doors and windows in our factory. 
  • Windows and doors are painted with 3 layers by us, and are therefore protected for approx. 5 years against weather influences.
  • They will be painted with Sigma, a Dutch manufacturer. Sigma products are the perfect protection against UV radiation, water, fungi and contain an anti-fouling protection as well.
  • 6 colours to choose from: Dusty Grey, Graphite Grey, Pure White, Reed Green, Silver Grey, Transparent Oak
 
Pre-treated Windows and Doors
Advantages:
  • A choice between 4 transparent colours and clear
  • Gives your windows/doors a base coat against fungi and rotting processes after assembly
  • Treated on the inside and outside
  • Within 1 year you need to paint the windows/doors.
 
Pre-treated Wood
Advantages:
 
 
  • The complete building is treated (flooring is an optional extra)
  • Areas that are difficult or unreachable after installation have received protection
  • The cabin is pre-treated with a base coat and ready to accept a paint/stain.
  • Your log cabin is protected against fungi and rotting immediately after installation. 
  • A choice of 5 transparent colours 
  • Within a year you will need to paint the outside of your log cabin.
  • Painting/staining will give the additional protection against rain, snow and UV-rays.
 
Pressure Treatment
Advantages:
 
  • Further treatment such as painting is not necessary if you choose this treatment.
  • Please note: after a period of time the colour of the wood will fade and turn grey/silver colour. If you prefer to leave it like this it is a matter of personal choice. The log cabin can still be painted/stained after this treatment.
  • With pressure treatment, the fluid is forced into the wood under vacuumed pressure. The treated wood becomes swollen and it is necessary to allow for a longer delivery time allowing for drying. Assembly may be harder due to the swelling in the wood. 
  • Pressure treatment can cause the natural expansion and contraction of the wood to increase slightly. Also the natural occurring wanes and shakes in the logs may be more pronounced. Gaps above the doors and windows may be initially seen but will disappear as the wood dries out.
  • Please Note: Windows and doors are unable to be pressure treated. We would recommend that you use one of the other or other factory treatments available.
  • Available in green or brown.
