Default cabot austrail oil vs cabot semi-trans oil

I am going to stain a A frame cabin that has old cedar shingles that are not in the best of shape. Was thinking of spraying instead of brushing, is the Australian Timber Oil better to use and has anyone used it in a sprayer?

timber oil doesn't last long. You need to apply it every year. Its mostly linseed oil and turpentine.

Gday Brian

I stay clear of exterior clear finishes or oil in Sydney as the Aussie Sun eats it up do you find the same in Melbourne ?

Funny seeing all the new houses around my area and they might have the trendy timber fence panelling and in 12
Plus months looks **** house

I have had some luck with intergrain

I reckon there are better products available. I just used a product called Quantum exterior semi gloss water based stain / varnish and its excellent.

How many years have you been using the Quantum product? Have you seen the test of time? How many more years will it last than Intergrain, with appropriate number of coatings?
Had a customer ask me about it the other day, I've had no experience with Quantum, just interested, because its not widely used & avialable here on the Gold Coast.
Cheers

Intergrain and Cabots are basically the same product. I have been disappointed in their decking finishes. I used the water based decking finish, applied 3 coats but after 12 months it looked weathered.

This Quantum product is very expensive. $ 120- for a 4 litre can. Only just tried it out yesterday on a deck. We will see how it lasts.
