Our log cabins come untreated, giving you the chance to customise them according to your taste and needs. We recommend you treat your log cabin to protect the timber from the elements and to prolong their life. In addition to our clear treatment, we also offer three tiers of treatment, allowing you to choose a treatment that will not only meet your budget requirements but also help you personalise your cabin.
We've calculated the amount of treatment you will need for two external coats, so you don't have to. Please read and follow the manufacturers' instructions on the tin.
Clear treatment is a solvent based, water repellent treatment that can be applied to help to minimise the amount of water absorbed in to the timber during rainfall. Applied directly to the timber, the fast-drying treatment is low odour and contains biocides for the protection of the coating.
You will need to add an overcoat of treatment to your garden building as soon as possible after installation to ensure UV protection and protection against rot and fungal decay. The clear treatment will need to be maintained more frequently than our Premium and PremiumPlus treatments.
Standard treatment is a water based treatment designed to protect your garden building at an affordable price. This fade resistant treatment can be applied directly to wood. There's no need for a primer, but it will need to be regularly maintained compared to the PremiumPlus and Premium Treatments.
Premium Treatment is a solvent based treatment. It comes in a range of colours. This is a deep penetrating treatment which can be applied directly onto wood without any need for a primer. Our Premium Treatment is low maintenance, with an average lifespan of 3-4 years, which will leave your garden building with an attractive finish.
PremiumPlus Block Treatment provides a water-resistant coating with long lasting mould and fungal protection. The treatment typically has a life span of up to 5 years. With a range of colours, this treatment will provide the perfect finishing touches to leaving your garden building standing proud and looking wonderful.
The treatment is low in odour, micro-porous water-based and contains linseed oil- a natural renewable resource.
Timber Eco Shield is a waterproofing wood stain, giving your garden building a traditional matt wood stain finish in a range of natural colours. The nanotechnology used results in a highly water repellent finish with a mould inhibitor and a fade resistant colour, which will keep the timber looking new for many years. It is especially recommended for use on pressure treated timbers. This eco shield treatment is easy to apply and dries very quickly. No primer or base coat is required.
