Protect now, perform later
We’re all about helping you get the most out of your timber, Perth! That’s why Austim’s experts are trained to advise you on how to best protect your wood from the damaging effects of moisture and Perth damaging sun.
After all, the beauty of well-maintained timber doesn’t happen by chance—it takes the right product and maintenance.
When done right, you’ll add years to the useful life of your deck or timber cladding, saving you considerable money in replacement costs and reducing the use of timber resources.

We invite you to have a chat with one of our expert staff members. We’ll provide you with the best information to help you choose the right coating product for your unique project.
There are two basic types of wood finishes (some claim to do both):
- Film finishes—form a film or coating on the wood. Can cure harder and be built up in layers (e.g. varnish or lacquer)
- Penetrating finishes—penetrate the wood surface. Oil-based and do not cure to a hard film (e.g. tung oil).
Tints or colours can be included with both types of finishes to help protect the timber from UV and help prevent the timber naturally greying off.
