    Well nearly 10 years.

    With a bit more time on my hands, the " I hope my unprotected sweet chestnut cladding isn't rotting under all that black stuff" worry came to the fore.

    A good part of the house has turned just a silvery grey, but where it's exposed to full sun (and rain) it has turned just a bit too black.

    I had thoughts of sanding it off to see, but had a go with a hosepipe and scrubbing brush and "et voila!" I think they say, comes up nearly new and surprisingly nice.

    Didn't fancy a pressure washer, as it would probably lift the grain and get a lot worse very quickly.

    No sign of any deterioration, but I wonder, should I treat it with something, or just let it darken again over time.

    Any ideas?

    If this post posts, I'll follow it up with a photo.
