Winter Weather Advice
When you buy a new timber product it can be hard to know what to do for the best, especially in winter.
Normally advice is to leave new timber to settle and allow pre-treatment chemicals to weather before adding water-repellent coatings.
At the same time you’re advised to apply a protective water-repellent coating straight away to avoid damage by rainwater and the weather.
We’ve put together a simple guide to help you on your way.

Pale Sage Fence Makeover
Last Easter bank holiday I dragged my husband out in to the garden at 8am as I’d had a vision that needed to be fulfilled.
In a large raised bed are two mature apple trees that produce the most glorious blossom every spring. Behind them sat an old weathered fence that just wasn’t doing anything to add to the picture.
I knew that if I (and aforementioned hubbie) painted the fence in Pale Sage from the Wood Stain & Protector range it would create the perfect backdrop to the spring bloom – and it did!

CLEAR TOUGH COAT changes name to CLEAR TOP COAT
Since the addition of Royal Exterior to our retail Woodcare Range, Clear Tough Coat is no longer the toughest kid on the Protek block.
Royal Exterior is the highest-spec, hardest-wearing, longest-lasting woodstain finish that we now manufacture, apart from Decking Stain that is specially formulated to withstand the extreme pressures of foot traffic and exposure.
A member of the Protek team moved in to a new house whose garden needed modernising.
With a stunning new greenhouse, a lot of hard work and a few pots of Protek wood stain, a glorious garden was created.
A couple of years ago I painted up two small wooden planters and a mini-greenhouse with two new shades from the Royal wood stain range.
This year I wanted to sow seedlings to over-winter for early planting out as soon as the frost disappears in spring. Sweet pea seeds were sown in the Royal Exterior Lime Green and Warm Clay planters, with Nigella and Foxgloves being sown in the Warm Clay mini-greenhouse.
Sitting happily on windowsills the planters bring much needed winter colour and provide the perfect growing spots for healthy seedlings.
An old wooden star mobile was also given a new lease of life with Royal Exterior in Midnight Blue. I lightly sanded it to remove dirt and algae but the old and faded coating on the faces was harder to remove so I just painted over it!
