My biggest regular client has old timber framing beams (exterior) that need a bit of TLC.
They are already black, client has owned property for 10 years, they haven’t a clue what has been used, because they haven’t had any work done on them.
The beams could be original (250 years+), there have been some spliced repairs in done properly in the past but on the whole it looks mostly original. The expected ageing but generally in sound condition.
It’s a listed building but not in a conservation area. Not that it should matter as I’m only protecting existing not changing colours or physical structure.
Any recommendations for what coating (black) I should use? Client is creosote mad (equestrian centre and buys the licenced stuff) and said to use that I said NO!!!
Any things to be aware of?
Would I just brush down to clean then add coating?
