Weather Proofing Timber

Postby mac72 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:12 pm

Hi,

I am looking for advice....

Last week I employed a joinery company to refurbish sash and case windows. I think the wood is very old (the cases may be 100 years old). Unfortunately the company did not seem to be have the necessary experience and did not make a good job.

As a result, I am looking for another joinery company to finish the job off to the required standard.

My windows now do not have any paint. I would be grateful if someone could advise how long I can leave the windows unpainted before they get damaged by rain,

Thanks in advance,
Mac

TBH I'd at least put a coat of primer on ASAP.

Whereabouts are you located ?
