With memories of Christmas and the New Year fading fast, it’s time to start looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that 2016 has in store for us all.

In capable hands

Although it’s easy for anyone to say how great they are, don’t take our word for it, just head over to Trust Pilot, one of the UK’s leading independent business review sites and read some of the Wood Finishes Direct reviews, that previous customers have written about our service. With a customer satisfaction score of 9.8 out of 10 based on 8,500 plus reviews*, it’s easy to see how we’ve become a leading supplier of wood finishing products in the UK.

Here are just a few of our most recent customer reviews.

So what do we have in store for 2016?

For us, 2016 is all about bigger and better, more products, more brands, more great product and project advice while maintaining an excellent level of customer service. Brands that have recently been added to our portfolio of suppliers include the likes of Cuprinol, Crown Paints, Dulux Trade and Sikkens. For the growing number of people who are looking for the ecological alternative to traditional paints and varnishes, we also stock a range of great wood finishing products from the likes of Earthborn Paints and Osmo Oils.

New shop and open for longer

Two major changes for 2016 are our recently refitted retail shop and our new extended opening hours. After much hard work, our retail and trade store is open making it easier for people who want to come and get the products that they need directly, great for those that need something ultra urgent and can’t wait for next day delivery. We’ve also extended our opening times in both the shop and on the phones so that customers can contact us easier after work and at weekends.

Got a project in mind? Not sure where to start?

Knowing where to start when looking to renovate or transform your home or perhaps a new property can be tricky. With the current onslaught of wind and rain, gardens are pretty much a no go area with many literally under water. For us, the winter months are all about interior floors, doors, staircases and kitchen work surfaces. While the winds howl and the rain falls, what better time to refresh floors and other interior surfaces with our great range of wood cleaners, restorers, clear and coloured wood oils, stains, paints, varnishes and waxes.

Not sure where to start? Wood Finishes Direct can help.

Roll on Spring and Summer

With the shortest day now behind us and reseeding fast, thoughts will soon be on the approaching spring and highly anticipated summer months. Will it be a scorcher or a damp squib? Truth is, no one knows but even if it does turn out to be the disappointing latter, you can almost guarantee that there will be at least several warm sunny spells to get out and enjoy the garden, be it with friends and family or perhaps on your own with a book and a cold drink. Even if it does turn out to be more rain forest than the Cost Brava, we have everything you need to seal, protect and preserve exterior wooden decking, doors, sheds, fences, garden furniture and more from wind, rain and sun to keep them looking good and lasting for much, much longer.

Protect and preserve the wooden fixtures in your garden

So if you’re a dreamer and perhaps less of a doer, why not make 2016 the year of change? Dig out those overalls or old decorating clothes, scan through some life style home and garden magazines or perhaps visit the Wood Finishes Direct Pinterest page, get inspired and set your creative tendencies free. changing the ordinary to extraordinary is probably much easier than you think and well within the realms of a novice DIYer. And with our expert product and project knowledge to help you out, your home and garden could become the talk of the town.

We’re here to help

If you have a question about a particular product or project, even if you’re not looking t o buy anything right away, give our team of friendly, resident experts a call, who are always on hand to happily answer any questions you may have.
