Pressure treatment

Pressure treatment

Timber is still one of our most attractive, versatile andadaptable construction materials. Properly treated against decay and insect attack, timber will last a lifetime and will out-perform many modern man-made alternatives, the name of this special timber is PRESSURE TREATED. All SKINNERS sheds and garden buildings are manufactured from quality Redwood with this high performance treatment.


Pressure treated timber is wood which has been pressure impregnated - the most advanced, universal fixed wood preservative.

Where can PRESSURE TREATED Timber be used?

PRESSURE TREATED timber can be used in all building, fencing or garden applications and in the most extreme environments, even in contact with fresh or sea water. PRESSURE TREATED timber is the
perfect material for the manufacture of our garden buildings.

How long will PRESSURE TREATED timber last?

PRESSURE TREATED timber is treated to perform to it's eventual end use of our timber buildings. Once installed the timber needs no further treatment, against rot for the foreseeable future- although we reccomend protek Royal water repellent to help with the protection of your building if water penetration occurs.We have buildings in gardens that are more than 29 years old.

Is PRESSURE TREATED timber safe?

After treatment, the preservative chemicals become totally 'fixed' within the timber cells and cannot be washed out. The treated timber is totally safe to humans, animals and plants and is permanently protected against decay. If water penetration occurs a solvent base water-repellent can be added.
