Our Exterior Wood Protection Tips

Exterior wood structures like deckings provide a beautiful addition to any home. However, without proper protection, they can easily fall prey to the elements. That's why exterior wood protection is essential for maintaining strength and appearance for any stretch of time. Wood is an amazing material and can make any home look and feel that much better, but it isn't invulnerable, and requires care and protection to last. 

Proper exterior wood protection is crucial to prevent damage and deterioration of your wood. Prolonged exposure to the elements can cause cracking, discolouration, and fungal growth. High-quality wood coatings can protect against moisture and prevent these issues. Our range of specialist products offers effective prevention and protection for your exterior wood, ensuring their longevity and maintaining their beauty.

Our wood paints come in a variety of vibrant colours while also providing a protective layer. Our wood oils offer nourishment and a waterproof finish that is suitable for old and new wood alike. With our wood stains, you can achieve a clear or stained gloss or satin finish for your exterior joinery.

We are always happy to provide our customers with full advice regarding our products so that you can choose the best ones for your specific needs.

Exterior Wood Stains

Exterior wood stains are an excellent choice for those who want to enhance the natural beauty of their exterior wooden structures. They come in a variety of shades, from clear to dark tones, and can be applied to both new and previously stained wood. Stains penetrate the wood fibres to provide long-lasting protection against the sun, moisture, and other elements. The advantage of using a stain over a paint is that it allows the wood grain to show through, providing a more natural look. A great exterior wood stain is the Impra Profilan Top Coat! Stains are also easier to maintain as they don't peel or crack like paints do. Overall, exterior wood stains are a great option for anyone looking to protect and enhance the appearance of their exterior wooden structures.


Exterior wood preservatives are designed to provide long-lasting protection against decay and insect attack for your wooden structures. They work by penetrating deep into the wood, helping to prevent rot and fungal decay. They can also help to repel insects and protect against weathering, ensuring that your wooden structures last for many years to come. Our range of preservatives is suitable for use on both new and old timber, as well as interior and exterior wood. They are easy to apply and provide excellent results, giving you peace of mind that your wooden structures are protected from the elements. The Probor 20 Gel preservative is a great choice to start with, why not take a look?
