The rising cost of Canadian real estate has compelled many of us to devote a larger portion of our budget to property ownership. Under these new market conditions, home maintenance has become more crucial than ever. Protecting your home investment is essential if you want your property to maintain its value.
When building a patio, a pool deck, a wood fence, or a gazebo, it quickly becomes clear that the cost of material and labour add up fast. To increase the durability and maintain the appearance of your outdoor wood surfaces, LIVOS Canada recommends its ALIS and DONNOS product lines. ALIS and DONNOS oils can be applied on any type of wood and are specially formulated for exterior use. These products are made of linseed oil as well as resins, waxes, and natural pigments. These composing ingredients may not reveal much at first glance, but linseed oil boasts a host of qualities, not least of which is its high-end performance on high-quality wood surfaces.
Livos wood oils are the result of more than 40 years of development and engineering. The top-tier quality of Livos products has earned the company an undisputed lead spot in the global market. Livos products for exterior use are without a doubt the first choice to consider for the protection and preservation of everything from wood decking to fences, pergolas to gazebos, and more.
Because ALIS and DONNOS wood oils are completely natural, ecological, and deep-penetrating wood oils, they nourish wood at a molecular level. Think of it as nature reinforcing nature!
In addition to their remarkable protective properties, ALIS and DONNOS oils function well as sealants—but they still allow the wood to breathe because they are naturally derived.
The natural pigments in the products mean they can also function as stains. Available in more than 20 colours, ALIS and DONNOS wood oils can elevate the natural beauty and patina of wood, enhance the richness of the wood grain, and augment the noble character that is characteristic of natural wood. Unlike a pricey regular chemical stain and varnish, the “oil effect” ensures lasting beauty and a professional finish.
Once your wood surfaces are treated with wood oil, it will never be necessary to sand to repair or enliven dull or weathered sections. Only a small quantity of oil, applied locally, will do to completely repair or refresh the surface. The colour and finish of the initial coat will be restored to its original lustre.
You can now layer colours for an even more distinctive look!
The cost of maintenance over time is lower than with a chemical or water-based stain. You will no longer have to buy costly gallons of stain every two or three years. A simple pint of oil is sufficient for regular maintenance. In addition, the coverage capacity of wood oil is at least 33% superior to traditional stain.
That’s right—the benefits of using 100% natural wood oils are many. The preservation of wood and exceptional finish afforded by Livos wood oils are worth considering to protect and enhance your exterior wood surfaces!
