Fiddes Exterior High Build Wood Oil is a versatile wood oil designed to seal and protect exterior wood and joinery from weathering and the effects of UV damage. Perfect for a wide range of exterior wood projects including wooden doors, windows, window frames, garden gates and more.
Ensure surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from surface contaminates. All surface coatings such as paint, varnish and varnish like wood stains must be removed back to bare wood.
Dense exotic hardwoods that contain a high concentration of natural oils may require a rub down with methylated spirit before oiling to aid penetration of this product.
Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Stir thoroughly before and during application.
Exterior wood can be brushed with a stiff broom or brush from time to time to remove surface dirt and debris
For more stubborn dirt and grime or traces of mould or algae, use a suitable exterior wood cleaner.
If the oil finish is looking tired or is loosing its ability to repel water, a maintenance coat can be easily applied.
Wanted a solid, easy to apply durable finish for teak on my yacht. If looks are anything to go by, I'd recommend anyone used to using varnish on exterior wood to try this one. Time will tell, but I have every confidence.
Easy to apply, dries to a lovely satin sheen.
Hasn't been on long enough to prove itself yet but it makes the wood look good, after a lot of sanding and preperation.
Seemed a little expensive. But it covered well and the finish looks brilliant
Excellent product, Fiddes is a brand that you can trust. High quality, easily applied & looks great.
Goes on a treat and the gates look really good. In the rain they look like waxed car bodywork
Had to apply wood oil to some timber that has the sun on it for a long time. Varnish just pickles too easily. This product will protect the wood for a longer time without peeling issues.
I was introduced to Fiddes Exterior oil by our joiner and have used it for the last 5 years on all exterior woodwork including a staircase. We have 1920s oak cills, replacement hard wood cills and a 4 year old oak front door which looks brand new. The secret is being really disciplined about annual treatment. With light sanding a single annual coat is sufficient to keep woodwork in excellent condition.
It is easy to apply and gives a very satisfying finish to wood surfaces.
I have found this to be a much more reliable, user friendly product than the osmo oil everyone seems to rave about.
I have had exoeriences in the past where a company has supplied the sma eproduct but it never went off and ruined a project that I was working on. This product was first class and was easy to apply and gave me the finish I was looking for and in the timescale that was on the tin.
Good coverage and seals really well subsequent coats can run if your not careful.
As with all fiddes products lovely to use and leaves a great finish
I find this product to be a real enhancement of wood products, bringing out the natural grain. Very easy to apply too.
Really pleased I purchased Fiddes Exterior Wood Oil, it is a great product for wood. And at a great price from Wood Finishes Direct free delivery, which was very speedy too. Would definitely recommend them & it.
Really easy to apply and follow instructions by wiping off excess with the cloth as otherwise too glossy
Applied over Barrettine wood preserver base coat. Goes on very well with a brush.Definitely wait overnight to recoat. Used the clear on Sapele gates, which gave a very even high sheen finish, but more of a varnish than an oil. Only recently applied so don't know about how it will last, but have had quite a few compliments so far.
Worked really well, the finish on our sleepers is fantastic!!
Delivery great. The finish on our sleepers is amazing!!
This is a great top coat to cover a good wood preservative and protect garden furniture.
