To stabilise the timber and maintain the appearance of your building, a quality preservation should be applied. We use Sovereign SX70 which is a top quality oil based product available in a range of colours and designed to maximise protection and minimise maintenance.
We recommend that at least 2 coats of a good quality wood treatment be applied to your building either before delivery or as soon as possible after. For all of our buildings that are supplied with one Top Coat of SX70 we recommend a further coat be applied within a few weeks of delivery. Please contact us if you would like us to do this for you or you can purchase the preservative from us and apply it yourself.
We treat all exposed surfaces except the underside of the roof and floor. External doors are treated on both sides. Floor joists are supplied pressure treated in either green or brown and do not need further treatment. Buildings that are NOT top coated by ourselves will be finished with one coat of dip coat preservative to give short protection only. If you wish to take your building with no treatment please advise us at the time of ordering.
