Some case studies will be referenced to highlight specific issues.
After this presentation participants learning outcomes will be:

Presentation 2: Specification of Timber Coatings
To increase the lifespan of timber, many species need to be coated. But, with so many different timber coatings available, it can be confusing to choose the right one. Design is one of the most important factors when deciding on a coating, as your choice will determine what you, and the client, wants the timber to look like now, and into the future. This presentation will give you greater confidence in specifying timber coatings by explaining;
Describe what coating options are available
Name factors to consider when choosing a coating
Explain why maintenance is important
