Timber Treatments

Pressure or dip timber treatments will ensure that your shed, fence or gate timbers don't rot, but if you really want to make sure your timber lasts you may want to apply a separate shed timber treatment. This is more vital for log cabins as they are made from untreated wood. Our shed timber treatments have added waxes for greater water protection and add a great decorative finish to your timbers.

Shed Treatment - When is the Best Time to Apply Timber Preservative Coatings?

  • Log Cabin Treatment
  • Garden Shed Treatment
  • Pressure-treated Wooden Sheds

Generally, you should apply preservative treatment to a Log Cabin as soon as you can and preferably within a week of building. The timbers arrive untreated to make it easier for you assemble. A year after the initial coating it is a good idea to reapply treatment, then you need to repeat every year or two, depending on the weather and condition of the timbers. It is best to apply protective timber treatments during Spring or early Autumn, whilst the weather is dry.

Ideally, we recommend that you apply a protective coating one year after assembling your shed and then repeat every year or two depending on the weather conditions. It's best to apply the coatings on a dry day in Spring or Autumn.

The beauty of buying a pressure treated shed is that you do not need to apply any preservative treatment. That said the wood will still change colour over the years, to keep your shed looking fresh you may wish to apply a timber treatment every 4-5 years.
