What kind of wood is Douglas Fir ?
Douglas Fir wood is a type of wood that is widely used for outdoor applications such as pergolas, sheds and luxury garden houses. It is also excellent wood for building a terrace or decking. Between the greenery of the grass, the plants and the colorful flowers, Douglas Fir has a beautiful characteristic, warm appearance. Douglas Fir is a coniferous species and very popular because of its characteristic and warm appearance. The wood is strong and durable and therefore extremely suitable for outdoor applications. A major advantage of Douglas wood is that it is very easy to work with. It is easy to saw and plan and you can use nails and screws as well as glue.
SUSTAINABILITY OF THIS TYPE OF WOOD
Douglas Fir wood has a durability class 3 which is of moderate durability, this indicates an expected life of the heartwood of about 10 to 15 years. This can of course differ per product and per size. The indicated expectation is based on untreated Douglas and with ground contact in our climate conditions with a cross section of 50x50mm. We recommend treating the wood well in order to extend its life. This is possible with Osmo oil for example .

WOOD WORKS AND LIVES
As with any other type of wood, this type of wood is also one that works. A change in the humidity of the air causes shrinkage or expansion of the wood. You will notice that the Douglas wood expands in wet weather and shrinks in the warm summer. This work, as the contraction and expansion is called, can sometimes lead to superficial cracks. This is in most cases seasonal and, in most cases, does not affect the strength or quality of the wood. Wood is a natural product and shrinkage and expansion is therefore allowed with the various products. In addition to working the wood, it is also possible, or actually even self-evident, that knots, flames and veins will be present in the wood. After all, the wood comes from a tree that previously had branches on it. We always give the tip to always mount knots or the like out of sight as they sometimes want to fall out over time. The Douglas wood also has the property that the wood will “bleed”. Bleeding means that resin is coming out of the wood. This is especially possible in the first year. We recommend that you wait until the resin has hardened and then remove it with a firm brush. Pests also enjoy the Douglas, especially during its existence in the form of a tree. It sometimes happens that, for example, a plank contains a number of holes from a previous bug activity.
TREATING DOUGLAS FIR WOOD
Douglas wood can be used very well untreated and will last between 10 and 15 years. However, it will turn silver grey over time if left untreated. This is not bad, but not everyone likes this. To prevent this, it is possible to treat Douglas Fir wood with oil or stain like Osmo Oil.00Your CartYour cart is emptyReturn to ShopCalculate ShippingApply Coupon
