Will the colour of my door and gate be the same as the finishes shown?

The density of your chosen finish colour will vary dependent on the timbers in your door and gate. Dark timbers increase the effective density of an applied colour –for lighter timbers the reverse is true. The samples of colours shown above illustrate an average shade. All doors and gates are made from timbers selected to blend well for depth of colour, however, by its very nature, uniformity for every door and gate is not possible. Some doors and gates will be made from predominantly darker timbers and some will be made from predominantly lighter timbers. Each will have a different density for the same colour finish.

The image below shows the effect of the base colour of the timber on the finished colour. All are Cedar, treated with our basecoat preservative (1), the first coat of Light Oak (2) and the final second topcoat of Light Oak (3). The colour variation across a light, medium and dark mottled timber can be seen from left to right.

Effect of the base colour of the timber on the finished colour

Doors and gates are ordered on the understanding that colour density variance is accepted as part of the inherent nature of wood. If you have a density of colour you wish to achieve please provide a sample or contact us for advice. We are able to select timbers to specifically meet your requirements for an individual door or gate, but please remember wood is a natural product and variation is impossible to eliminate. A perfect match is unlikely – the very reason we love wood so much!
