Hi We are building from scratch a quality shed/workshop to be clad in sawn pressure treated softwood but some parts will be planed eg, the door and window beading.
We would like to use the best quality timber preservative (dark colour)against water and insect infestation. There will be no plants growing in the vicinity apart from an apple tree that is close but will not touch the workshop. It is quite close to the house.
Can anyone recommend the best presevative to use please? Is creosote substitute better than any normal preservative? I am worried that it may not soak into the planed timber and that the odour will not clear very quickly.
Is there a proprietory top quality long-lasting preservative that will soak into planed timber?
Any advice much appreciated.
