Timber and the Effects of the Weather

Wood is a natural product and therefore susceptible to certain changes in an outside environment. Extremes of temperature or changes in weather conditions will cause a reaction in timber used outdoors. Heat may cause panels to lose shape but this process should be reversed when temperatures subside.

Sawn timber posts and machine rounded items may warp and split in higher than normal temperatures. This is perfectly natural and in all but the most extreme cases normal shaping returns. This will not effect the structural strength of the wood.

If treated regularly with an oil based treatment, wooden products should give years of service.
