Q-Clad Painted Black Rebated Featheredge Cladding (two coats) is made from slow grown Scandinavian whitewood (Picea Abies).
It is kiln dried to a specific moisture content suitable for external cladding use and preservative treated to Use Class 3.1 providing a 15 year warranty against fungal decay and insect attack (the warranty does not apply to the life of the paint coating).
Factory applied paint provides the best possible paint finish for timber.
Fine sawn finish with one primer coat and one top coat, sharp edges removed.
The product is can be over-painted but this is your choice and not a requirement of the warranty.
The more coats applied to the cladding means the greater paint ‘build’ and the greater the ‘build’ the better the finish and resistance to weathering.
For over-painting we recommend the use of Bedec Barn Paints by Bedec Ltd (satin finish is the closest match) or similar high quality waterborne microporous systems.
