All of the timber buildings made here at the Viking Garden Buildings come pressure treated as standard, using a highly established and widely approved wood preservative called Tanalith E. This is a chrome and arsenic free timber preservative that is both safe for the environment and for animals.
Using pressure treatment, this preservative is impregnated into the woods structure, providing reliable long-term protection. We use tanalised treated timber as standard here at Viking, ensuring that we help preserve the quality of the wood and increase the life of your garden building. It will provide excellent protection from all weather conditions, as well as protecting your shed from garden insects, fungus and termites. Ordering a pre-treated building is also beneficial when constructing your building in an enclosed space where self-treatment would be difficult.
Tanalith E has been specially selected to ensure that the optimum performance and colour durability is obtained, and though natural weathering may still occur, it will not affect the sheds long-term durability or the efficiency of the preservative.
Once your tanalised shed has been installed, we recommend that you apply a quality waterproof treatment to fully weatherproof it.
Purchasing one of our tanalised timber buildings will ensure that you have the most advanced and accepted timber protection available and it will also give you confidence in a product that will provide the very best for your timber.
