Summer has come to an end and we hope you made the most of it! Days out with the family, time to yourself to relax and of course - using those longer evening to complete jobs around the house that you’ve been meaning to do for some time now! Summer is a great season for DIY-ers to get out in the garden and fix up all those little projects they’ve been meaning to. However, now that Winter is coming, you don’t want all your hard work to go to waste!

In this blog article we’re going to be taking a look at how you can protect your summer project this winter and what the best products are for you to use.

1.) CUPRINOL DECK OIL

Available in Oak, Pine and Cedar colours, this product nourishes wood and is guaranteed to protect your decking no matter the conditions that may face us this Winter. You can apply this product by brush, or you can use a Cuprinol sprayer. This oil will stain your decking, tinting the wood and revitalising the colour, keeping your hard work looking stunning right through the Winter months.

2.) BIRD COMPLETE WOOD PROTECTOR

A risk with decking and fencing coming into Winter is not only discolouration but the growth of bacteria and fungus. This wood protector is solvent based and therefore has high penetration, giving a high level of protection. It also contains UV resisting pigments to help maintain a natural colour. Available in 8 colours including clear - catering to almost every fence and decking colour.

3.) THOMPSON’S ONE COAT PATIO AND BLOCK PAVING SEAL

This seal can be used on all types of block paving and flag stones and will protect your paving with just one coat. This formula resists all oil and fuel stains as well as providing protection against algae growth. The application is quick and easy - effectively sealing your paving and is safe to drive on again after 24 hours.
