    My property is timber framed Western Red Cedar [Canadian] bungalow. I have always used Timba Dura to treat the exterior walls.It is 3 years since I last treated the walls but now discover that Timba Dura has been discontinued and there is no alternative treatment - any suggestions ??

    Hi,

    I know this is an old thread but I'm in the same boat as Tim. Canadian log cabin, cedar, always used timba dura and now looking for an alternative. I've tried googling Dura Guard but not much luck.

    Did you find anything Tim?

    Same as Mike and Tim and Fonzerelli, no more Timba Dura Cedar when I went looking.

    I used Oslo Natural Oil Woodstain/Red Cedar as alternative on the sills of tropical hardwood window frames in which white aluminium double-glazed units are fitted- 1980's style. I don't know what the hardwood is. The sills needed doing. It required sanding back of all of the patchily weathered Timba Dura. Oslo worked well in this instance, in my opinion, and the finish looks good. But the thought of having to do more than exterior sills drains me. I can't believe that there aren't pushed to the backs of shelves in garages and sheds and warehouses in Britain unopened cans of this terrific British product, Timba Dura

    I too wish you could still buy this. Has anyone looked at Restol? Similarly a linseed oil based paint although thinner than Timba Dura
