Prices of wooden grills


The price of a wooden grating depends on its size, the model chosen, and the quality of the material used to make it.

The most expensive panels are produced using valuable and solid wood; they have a thick side frame, which makes the panel stable once fixed.

Wood grating: The maintenance of wooden grating


Wood is a living material, which even if treated remains porous and rough; over the years it tends to absorb part of the water received with the rains, and to feel the effects of heat, sun, rain and frost. To ensure that the elements, dust, smog and dirt do not damage the wood, damaging it irreparably, it is important to practice good maintenance regularly. At the end of winter, clean the gratings using a damp cloth to remove the most evident dirt. Every 3-5 years, protect the surface by painting it with special impregnating products. The cheaper gratings are often covered with a transparent varnish, which tears the pores of the wood: over the years this breaks and detaches, it is useful to sand the wood and cover it with a product against bad weather.
