FAQ #3: Can Your Wood Products Be Used On Exterior Areas?

Our custom wood products can be used on exterior areas, but due to the longevity of the product life cycle, we recommend that the product not be directly exposed to UV or weather conditions. Because of this, you’ll often see our wood product installed on a canopy or porte cochere.

While all of our wood products are sturdy and high-quality, we’ve experienced the best results using Endure Linear whenever a customer is looking for a product that can withstand weather conditions or UV.
