White Painted Victorian Greenhouses
For the past eight years Woodpecker has been crafting and installing white painted wooden greenhouses. The whole range of Woodpecker greenhouses are suitable for our painted finish. We now choose to use Accoya timber for our painted greenhouses instead of cedar as we find the finished paintwork has a more durable and lasting finish. The paint applied to our greenhouses is specially selected for exterior use on Accoya timbers and provided by leading Oxford based paint manufacturer Teknos. The paint technology is based on a microporous system, which allows the timber to breathe but still creates a durable weatherproof barrier to protect the timber from the elements. Teknos paint is resistant to bacterial, mould and UV sunlight attack, meaning lower requirements for long term maintenance.
Historically we have painted greenhouses made from Western Red Cedar, but with the advent of new timber technologies and species, we feel Accoya provides a better painted product quality and life time. At a customers request we can paint Western Red Cedar, but we would feel better applying paint to accoya and offering the best product we can achive.
The whole range of Woodpecker joinery greenhouses, shed combos and garden rooms can be specified with a painted finish as an optional extra.
Typically painted greenhouses are fitted on dwarf walls as to reduce the painted surface exposure to ground frost and wear and tear from the day to day use of the greenhouse.
Our painted greenhouses are spray-coated in our purpose-designed 300 sqm paint shop which includes climate-controlled drying facilities. The facility neighbours our main manufacturing workshop where we manufacture the framework of our painted greenhouses using the same attention to detail and craftsmanship we have built our reputation upon
We apply paint to our greenhouses using a spraying method which creates a uniform surface finish on the surface of the timber. Spray application also offers better results upon detailing and panelled surfaces.
