Does the timber need any further treatment or protection? Print

Remember that Insect and fungus proofing of timber meaning no need for preservative treatment of timber as the timber will be of no interest as a food source for insects and fungus. However, your timber will still need protection from the damaging UV rays of the sun if exposed to the elements.

We recommend using Envirotouch’s timber products like “outdoor??? oil for this purpose. To seal in the oil you can also add an Envirotouch wax balm. Initially you may need to do this a few times to give a chance for the timber to soak up the oil properly. If the timber is exposed to driving rains the oils may leach out so will need some maintenance. Note that this is no different from conventionally treated timber.
