External wood treatments
Treating your Garden Building with the right product will protect it against deterioration so it will last longer. We recommend a high-quality preservative, one that will last a number of years, thus limiting maintenance required. You should coat all the external wood on you log cabin, including the bits you can't see easily. For example, remove the doors and apply preservative to the bottom of the door, this will get wet and could mean that the door splits in years to come.
We would recommend the following for you garden building:
- For varnish - Jotun Butinox is a good choice
- Jotun Demidekk is good if you wish to colour your outdoor building
- Sadolin's extra durable clear coat is good to keep your wood in its natural colour - www.sadolin.co.uk
Applying your preservative as the manufacturer directs will keep your cabin looking good for many years to come. If you have any queries please contact our customer care team using the Contact Us form.
Fire retardant treatment for wood
For log cabins that require Euro class B Spread of Flame, we would recommend HR-Prof.
HR-Prof is simple to use and safe to apply, it quickly penetrates the structure of the wood and can be over-coated with wood stains and varnishes. HR-Prof has non-flammable properties, which become part of the log cabin, restricting ignition and the spread of flame. It is not harmful to the environment.
