We are currently using Barrattine Wood Preserver to treat the external surfaces of the log cabins. We have been impressed with its properties not least the fact that it is oil based and has a number of colour options, including clear. As per the manufacturers instructions we recommend a minimum of two coats, ideally three, to ensure an adequate level of protection.

Barrattine Wood Preserver Colour Options

The colour swatches are an indication only and representative of the product applied to clean new/pale timber. The final colour finish can vary considerably due to the age, type & condition of the timber being treated. We always recommend carrying out a test area first in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the final dried colour.
