New Protek Pack Designs Hit the Streets
With a new year about to start we are delighted to say that our makeover is complete and we have attractive new pack designs for our entire retail range.
Joining the new look Wood Stain & Protector and Shed & Fence packs are new labels for Wood Preserver, Stable Coat and Decking Stain. They all now sport a modernised and simple design that makes them stand out on store shelves and be easily recognisable as part of the Protek woodstain range. The Royal Interior and Royal Exterior packs have also had a quick re-fresh with a move from neutral to our coloured Protek logo and the ‘Step 2’ flag added.
Our Application Guide will be re-written in the New Year to make it easier to select and use the appropriate product for all timber care jobs.
How to - maintain your window frames
Painting window frames is one of those jobs that most of us groan at the prospect of having to do. Luckily I have a husband who was (relatively) happy to take on the task!
Garden Items Makeover
Why not take advantage of our winter sale to carry out some projects such as these garden bird feeder and house makeover projects.
A 1 litre tin of Royal will give you plenty of woodstain to carry out these makeovers and more. The sale runs from 1st January 2014 to 28th February 2014 giving 15% off a 1 litre tin of Royal Exterior or Interior. Bring some colour into the cold dull winter days by carrying out some quick and easy jobs!
Top of the Pots
Through the summer months we saw some interesting trends and popularity. The majority of Top 10 colours remain fairly constant with the ‘Titchmarsh effect’ accounting for the popularity of 1 litre tubs of Wood Stain & Protector Lilac plus 5 litre tubs of Warm Grey, Gun Metal Grey and American Barn Red jumping in the top 10 being used as feature colours in garden designs on ITV1’s hugely popular “Love Your Garden” series.
From September to November more of the traditional wooden tones have entered the top 10 for both Wood Stain & Protector and Royal Exterior. There’s a return from other popular seasonal colours such as Spruce, Willow and Snow plus a surprise entry of Violet in to the top 10 for Wood Stain & Protector 1 litre tubs. Must be an accent design fad going on with a warm, vibrant, festive purple at its centre!
This month's colours – MARCH
Spring starts here and as the countryside kicks in to action the promise of fresh life buds and blooms. Our neighbours in Wales will be celebrating Saint David’s day with traditional celebrations held all over the country. My collection of daffodils is spreading nicely and giving off a magnificent display in my garden and the soft bleets of prancing lambs can be heard from the fields.
Protek supports Ideal Young Gardeners of the Year 2014
Last year we were invited to supply our woodstains to the colleges taking part in this fantastic competition. Two of the competing colleges used Protek woodstains in their stunning garden designs and we had the opportunity to see the show gardens on the opening day of The Ideal Home Show when the gardens are judged and prizes awarded.
Protek are delighted to be supporting the competing colleges again and look forward to seeing the designs that the talented young students create in 2014. In 2013 The Ideal Home Show in Earls Court attracted over 265,000 visitors allowing the colleges to showcase their talent to a very wide audience in this high profile competition.
Look After Garden Birds this Winter
Garden birds always need some help over winter and this year seems set to be a particularly bitter and harsh one. Feeding birds with leftover fruit cakes, bacon rind or store bought feed can help keep your feathered friends happy and healthy through the winter months.
Bike Shed Makeover
Last year we started on our bike shed and refreshed it with Wood Stain & Protector Beaumont Blue. Although we’d been naughty and didn’t remove the previous coating, amazingly a year later the coating still looks great. As we were overcoating an old blue shade I applied 3 coats but 2 would have been fine.
How to - Make a Coat Rack
Recently my husband and I were shopping for a coat rack and everything that we found in the shops were either very expensive or not what we were looking for.
We decided to make our own and having bought a couple of cheap packs of hooks from the local DIY store on the High Street, we returned home and dug out some left over wood from the garage.
Within a couple of hours we had a beautiful bespoke coat rack on our walls that looks great and was ridiculously cheap and easy to make.
Winter Weather Advice
If the rumours are true then we are set to see a harsh winter this year making it even more important to protect your exterior timber, and even more difficult to do so.
Before the bad weather really sets in and starts taking its toll on your timber, give all of your wooden products a quick health check to see if anything needs repairing, replacing and re-treating.
