Finishing Timber Externally aims to provide an understanding of the important considerations of
finishing timber elements externally. ‘Finishing’ includes surface treatments of timber elements,
securing timber elements as part of a building envelope, and designing and detailing timber elements
for maximum design life.


This guide complements the Wood Solutions Guide #5 Timber service life design. Design guide
for durability. That guide provides information on the use of bare or treated timber in many external
applications including in-ground posts, decks, fences and pergolas, and should be consulted for
detailed information on these uses. This guide, Wood Solutions Guide #13, concentrates on the
finishes used with timber exposed externally in decks or as part of the building envelope, such as
cladding or external joinery.
