CdA Wood is manufactured and intended as an affordable alternative to reclaimed wood and will naturally continue to age and weather. The degree Xcelerated will maintain or change color depends on the location placement and exposure to weather elements. Color change can be minimized by periodic application of a clear UV top coat. Left alone, Xcelerated Exteriors will continue to age and weather, with some colors darkening and other colors lightening as time goes on. CdA Wood recommends sealing the wood, especially if multiple colors are being used. At times, harsh weathering will cause color dislocation with unsealed wood. Ultimately, you and your installer need to weigh all factors (geographic location and climate; siding/installation type; desired look; projected maintenance costs; etc.) and determine the appropriate sealing and maintenance approach for your project. Xcelerated Interiors will not change colors if there is no outdoor light penetrating the wood for significant amounts of time.

Recommended Sealants are as follows:

1. Lumber Seal by Agra Life (VOC Free & Non Toxic Eco Coating)

2. Boiled Linseed Oil

*We do not recommended using anything with Polyurethanes.
