Any ‘natural material’ e.g. the leather of shoes or handbags, when exposed to the outdoor elements will be affected in some way.
The material may dry out and appear grey, crack or in some instances attract mould (due to bamboo’s high starch content) and turn ‘black’ when regularly exposed to rain.
This can be prevented in most cases, with regular and proper maintenance. Most importantly fading and cracking does not impact on the integrity of the material.
Many people love the silvery-grey colour which happens naturally in timbers and bamboo over time. You can delay the greying process or completely restore colour using our specially formulated bamboo protector and rejuvenator. As with any outdoor product, maintenance on a regular basis is recommended.
Natureed® naturally fades over time with exposure to sunlight. We recommend the application of Sikkens decking oil in teak or oak if you wish to maintain the original colour.
Most of our products can be used for DIY projects but we recommend talking to our Design Consultants first to discuss installation requirements.

Bamboo is a natural product and a feature of bamboo is that it may occasionally split or crack. Please note that splitting and cracking does not change the structural characteristics of bamboo and is more common in larger poles than in smaller poles.
