Waska Factory Coated, Weathering StainTM/Bleached & Semi-transparent Stain
What is factory finishing?
Factory finishing is an engineering coating process taking place in a controlled environment. This closed environment provides the optimum conditions for coating cedar shingles. These shingles must be brought to a proper climatic balance and moisture content before they are coated. Our people at Waska check all cedar shingles for moisture content before the coating is applied, thus ensuring their quality and performance for years to come. And since the elements are not a factor in the factory, we can eliminate weather delays on the job site.
Weathering StainTM/bleached shingles.
Olympic's Weathering Stain™ has been specifically formulated to provide our shingles with a uniform, naturally weathered, silver-grey finish more rapidly and evenly than nature. It contains a special weathering agent to accelerate the natural weathering process, providing an attractive, low maintenance finish. Upon application, this product imparts a soft grey tone to the white cedar shingles. Also, the weathering stain linseed oil formula penetrates deep into the wood to strengthen wood fibres.
This is an excellent option for anyone desiring to enhance the beautiful look of cedar shingles with your choice of various colors. This will allow the coating to protect and maintain the shingle while higlighting the wood's grain and texture. When you decide to have one (1) coat of Olympic semi-transparent stain, we back it up with a 3 year warranty.
MachinecoatTM …a quality product with a beautiful finish and a limitless color palette!
The MachinecoatTM Exterior finish is a water based 100% acrylic latex coating formulated specifically for machine application to real natural wood fibre. MachinecoatTM offers the application and performance characteristics of a premium latex paint combined with the beauty and protection of an oil-based stain.
Waska will also offer you a 5-year warranty against any peeling, cracking and flaking on one (1) coat of Olympic paint and a 15-year warranty when we apply two (2) coats.
MachinecoatTM's unique formula resists marks and scratches so it stands up to handling in transit and during installation. With MachinecoatTM, there's no need for costly call-backs to cover shrink lines, lap marks, scratches or overspray.
Because MachinecoatTM is machine applied before installation, there's minimal danger of premature coating failure due to damage of exposed surfaces prior to coating. This revolutionary exterior finish offers a range of benefits and your building has immediate curb appeal.
The many benefits of Waska's prefinished cedar shingles:
Accurate mil thickness of coating is factory applied to the eastern white cedar shingles in our own factory. Great care is then taken to see that the coating is properly cured and dried. All coated shingles are then packaged, fully protected and, once installed, are ready to perform for a very long time.
As construction costs continue to skyrocket, our factory can provide a beautiful way to save money. First, weather delays are virtually eliminated since factory applications continue year-round in a controlled environment. Second, job site clutter and waste is eliminated. No painting scaffolds. No expensive clean-up. And finally, the sudden showing of bare areas due to wood shrinkage is prevented.
The right products, superior application. The result is the highest quality finish - one that saves you time, money and provides four sided protection.
