This product is intended for use with wildlife and therefore no pressure-treated wood or harmful chemicals have been applied. The cedar shingles will naturally patina to a silvery gray color with sun bleaching. Expect that all products left outdoors will weather and may require refinishing.
Should you want to preserve the paint finish, select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow.
The Powder Magazine, one of the 89 surviving 18th-century structures in Colonial Williamsburg’s historic area, has been a noteworthy Williamsburg landmark since it was built. Its long history and unique octagonal design have captured attention since the 19th century. The Powder Magazine was commissioned by Governor Spotswood in 1714 as a storehouse for military supplies and equipment. Just before the Revolution, it was the scene of a famous confrontation between Williamsburg residents and the royal governor when his soldiers absconded with the colony’s gunpowder under the cover of dark.
