UV Protection Wood Oil
We use OSMO’s UV Protection Wood Oil to finish our signs. This oil contains an active ingredient for the preventative protection against algae and fungal decay. As a stand-alone finish it blocks the greying process by UV-Protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood. If you do not maintain the wood with a regular coating of this oil ,water will seep in and gradually turn the grain black.
If you would rather leave the oak untreated, the oak will soon ‘silver-down’ to a beautiful grey tone.
We will endeavour to get your new sign to you as soon as we can, however due to the fact that each sign is hand crafted ,you can expect to receive it within four weeks of ordering.
