Outdoor timber surfaces add a touch of class to any home. Natural timber can transport your home to anywhere in the world. The only trouble is, outdoor timber weathers and has to be maintained, in order to keep its rich colours and tones. However, there is no need to panic, no need to give up your precious weekends or take time off work, when its time for maintenance of your outdoor timber surfaces the Timber Doctor is ready to step up and take the load off your shoulders.

We can look after all your outdoor timber needs.

New Timber

We will take care of all the preparation and staining of new structures such as decks, board walks, pergolas, screens, furniture and fences etc. We are happy to do those small jobs that many tradesmen are not keen to do and we are just as happy to do the big jobs as well. Timber doctors use only the best quality materials and follow best practice in preparation, choice of materials and application. We are also ready to provide advice on the most suitable product for your specific circumstance, tips on common problems and pitfalls to avoid. We will also show you colour samples to see what your timber will look like when the job is done. With the right processes and materials we can have your new timber structures ready to go in just a few days and all you have to do is get ready to enjoy them.

Maintenance

Your outdoor timber structures don’t come cheap. Some of them cost tens of thousands of dollars. This is a substantial investment and it needs to be properly looked after if it is to retain its value and add value to your property. For that reason, we are ready to look after your timber investment well into the future. As you know the outdoors is a less than friendly environment for all surfaces, and timber is no exception. Depending on circumstances most outdoor timber surfaces need regular maintenance at one to two year intervals. It is false economy to delay maintenance work. When maintenance is done within the safe time frame, it can be done quickly, with minimum disruption and cost effectively. When maintenance is left too long the preparation time is greatly increased, more materials are required, more time is spent and, of course, the costs go up accordingly. As part of our commitment to making sure your outdoor timber continues to look terrific and lasts for years and years, as it should, we are happy to visit you each year and provide a free assessment of how your timber is holding up. If everything is going well we will tell you, and will schedule a return visit at a suitable time down the track for a follow up inspection.

Restoration

If you have left your timber a bit too long and it has started to weather and age it’s may not too late to rescue it.

Remember our slogan is “Bringing Timber to Life” With the right materials and processes most timber surfaces can be restored to “like new” in many cases, so don’t give up hope.

Bringing your timber back to life and looking after it will be a lot less expensive than pulling it down and replacing it.

There are many considerations to take into account when restoring old and weathered timber such as :

  • Has it been coated before
  • The condition of the old coating
  • Is it mould affected
  • Will the timber need sanding
  • Will some timber need replacing
  • How much exposure does it have to the elements

Timber Doctors are armed with the knowledge and knowhow to advise you on what needs to be done and what can be expected. In most cases our customers are amazed at how incredible the transformation is. Just like when coating new surfaces, once the restoration is completed it is important to maintain it, whether it is a deck or outdoor setting or anything else, you need to protect your investment and we are here to help you do just that. So, just as we do when we coat those new surfaces, we will visit you each year and give a free assessment of how you timber is holding up. Our job is not only to bring your old timber back to life but to keep it alive.
