After years of experience Oiling cladding especially the red cedar wood which we have done here, we always as a team apply 4 coats.
We apply 2 coats then let the carpenters place them up on walls then we apply 2 more coats.
The reason we apply 2 more coats is 1. To make sure the tiny pin holes are filled up with oil and 2. Because 2 coats is never sufficient to stop the cedar from blistering etc
Another great looking exterior
