Product Info

prodinfo.gifDogwood Siding would like to introduce you to a new wood siding on the market, which we believe would be beneficial to you.

Dogwood Siding is exclusively made from black spruce, chosen specifically for its fine qualities: it has very small knots, which are tight and non-bleeding, and is readily available in the Maritimes.

This wood is then professionally treated and finished with Sansin Enviro Stains, custom selected to your color requirements for each order.

Because today’s consumers are environmentally conscientious, as well as more strapped for time, we have chosen Sansin Enviro stain for its unique penetrating qualities. Sansin is made from natural ingredients, similar to way of the ancient peoples of Norway who took resin and gums from the heartwood of trees, warmed it and applied it to their Stave Churches, which are still standing today.

Dogwood Siding has developed a new revolutionary smoothing technique on their siding, which creates a weathered texture; this process also creates increased penetration, increased longevity and easier maintenance. This smoothing technique also accentuates the grain and with a true stain applied that doesn’t hide the grain providing an appearance that is unmistakably REAL WOOD.

 

Siding

By sanding the wood just prior to coating, the pores of the wood are opened up, mill glaze is removed, and the penetration of stain and protectants is optimized.

 

Decking

Like our siding, the decking is finished using Sansin Enviro Stains and is available in standard and custom colour combinations. The initial application of decking is one where it can be coated on all sides; generally if it is coated on site – the bottom of the decking is never coated. By coating all sides Initially the wood itself is better protected from decay.

Installation
Dogwood Siding is installed in accordance with the National Building Code of Canada

Sansin Enviro Stains
With Sansin Enviro Stains, not only can you protect your wood naturally – you can also invite the beauty of nature into your life. Our collection of 79 unique colors is inspired by the stunning beauty of our world – the deep blue of a summer’s sky, the rich yellows of the ripe harvest, the pure tones of the Southern desert.
Sansin doesn’t just stain your wood; it actually becomes an integral part of your wood’s cell structure, protecting it naturally from within. Because Sansin stains are water-borne, they can be applied even to wood with a high moisture content. And they’re not harmful to the environment.

The Science behind healthy wood
Wood is a tremendously versatile material – and as long as it’s protected, a very strong and durable one. Water, ultraviolet (UV) rays and fungi can all seriously damage your wood. Traditional petroleum and acrylic-based coatings protect wood by forming a surface film which repels water and UV rays. Unfortunately, this tends to prevent evaporation, trapping
moisture in the wood and making it prone to decay…. (Read More…)

The secret of beautiful color
To ensure the richest, most vibrant hues, Sansin uses only the highest quality pigments. Each is finely ground to the most exacting standards and then combined with Sansin’s unique Enviro Stain formulas. Water carries modified natural oils and resins deep into the wood – resulting in uniform color that shines from within your wood with incomparable beauty and clarity.

Why hide the personality of your wood?
Sansin Enviro Stains let the personality of your wood shine through. Where many traditional stains and coatings put a layer between you and your wood, Sansin penetrates deeply, bonding directly with individual wood cells for maximum protection. If you plan on using a naturally beautiful material like wood, why would you cover it up?
