With the new season, why not try a new brand? Introducing Protek. Protek are a family run company from the rolling hills of beautiful Somerset. Their product ranges are inspired by the lavish countryside and the distinguished heritage houses nestled within it. They have successfully combined modern water-based technology and paired it with a traditional style that is suitable for almost any exterior wood. This results in a traditional, old fashioned look that is normally associated with high-solvent exterior paint products, without harming any of the flora or fauna around it.
Protek wood stains are great at colouring and protecting most exterior wood. Available in both semi-translucent and opaque formulas, they’ll give you long lasting colour and weather protection, which makes them ideal for a number of exterior wooden projects including sheds, fences, garden furniture, animal enclosures and much more. Better yet, they’re pet and plant friendly once dry.
