Q. Is this all I need to protect my summer house?
Although this product can be used as a standalone treatment for summerhouses sheds, fences and other rough sawn or smooth timber structures, it has minimal durability and does not provide any weather protection for the wood. For a more durable finish and one that provides added water repellency and weather protection, we highly recommend that this product is overcoated with a suitable exterior wood oil such as Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment or Barrettine Decking Oil.
Q. Can I use Barrettine Wood Preservatives on a chicken shed and dog kennel?
Barrettine Wood Preservatives are perfectly safe to use on any surface that comes into contact with animals when dry. This includes but is not limited to dog kennels, chicken sheds and houses, horse stables and more. It's important to remember that this wood preservation treatment should be over-coated with a suitable exterior oil. Animals should only come into contact with the surface of the wood when both the wood preserver and oil have fully dried.
