During the initial weeks, a very slight and hardly noticeable discolouration of the wood composite may occur due to the natural seepage of lignin, under the influence of the sun and the rain. After a short while, this process will stabilise and the wood composite will retain its colour for the rest of its life. Any staining that may become visible from the lignin will disappear as a matter of course after a few rain showers. Thanks to its unique composition, wood composite is also extremely well-protected against moss, mould and slime build-up. Those looking for a material with lasting appeal cannot ignore wood composite.
