Scotts summerhouses are all supplied in a natural, unpainted finish of Red Grandis, a sustainable hardwood. Red Grandis is a premium quality hardwood
perfectly suited for outdoor buildings as it offers a long life span and is extremely durable.
If you prefer a stained or painted summerhouse, Scots offers a range of appeaing colour finishes enabling you to customise your summerhouse to blend with your garden. The ten paint and one stain colour options are shown below.
If a paint finish is selected then all of the nail holes are filled before the timber is primed. The microporous top coat in your chosen colour, is applied in a spray finish from the Teknos Industrial range offering excellent resistance to the elements. In most cases, this gives you five to seven years of maintenance free life, depending on the location of your building.
If a stained finish is chosen, two coats ofTeknos Industrial range semi-gloss stain are applied. The stain penetrates and enhances the natural beauty of the wood whilst offering a highly effective protection. Depending upon the exposure and location of the summerhouse, two coats of this stain will, generally, protect the building for five to seven years before restaining is necessary.
A tin of touch up stain or paint is supplied with all stained or painted buildings, for touching up as necessary. Paint or stain is available direct from Scotts suppriers for maintaining your building in future years.
Colours may vary, due to the printing process, samples are available on request.
