Due to the nature of the materials in a Lockwood, they are very low maintenance homes. But maintenance and care of your investment are two different things.
We would recommend regular washing and cleaning down of aluminium exterior walls and joinery to remove pollutants such as moss, mould, sea salt spray, and industrial contaminants, etc. If this hasn’t been done regularly, or other environmental factors are in play, you may find the aluminium cladding requires painting. If your Lockwood has cedar or VG Pine cladding, this will require regular painting or staining.
We always recommend using paint or stain colours with a light reflective value of 28% or higher as dark colours on timber exterior surfaces can result in excessive heat absorption causing undesirable timber movement.
