Timber, in colour

15 January 2021

Timber is synonymous with residential New Zealand architecture – it’s a long-time favourite and, of late, the use of vertical cedar and other wood varieties has come into its own.

However, the colour palette that can be created with WoodOil has never been more flexible – or as extensive – and it’s a key part of the design process as houses are built to blend in with the surrounds or to stand out, and to stand the test of time.

Dryden® WoodOil’s range of products come in 33 colours, allowing for the ultimate design freedom. From slate greys to rich, velvety autumnal tones and deep, dark hues the choices are vast and striking.

As a water-repellent, non-filming, timber protector, Dryden® WoodOil is a deeply penetrating oil that utilises an ultraviolet, stable fungicide, preventing the absorption of water deep into the timber, extending the service life of the timber.

Made in New Zealand and designed for our conditions, it is suitable for use on wood cladding, shingle roofs, fencing, decks, outdoor furniture and specific interior finishes, and can be used on all species of timber and wood surfaces, old or new, rough or smooth.
