White Painted Cedar Greenhouses
For the past eight years Woodpecker has been crafting and installing white painted cedar greenhouses. The whole range of Woodpecker greenhouses are suitable for our painted finish. We choose to use Accoya timber for our painted greenhouses 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.
