It is important to keep your Garden Building clear from leaves and subsiding soil that may build up around the bottom of the building. Make sure nothing rests against the building allowing the timber to breathe continuously.
Although the timber has been tanalised, it is still a requirement for the timber to be treated further.
To maintain a dry Garden Building, a water repelling agent is a must have. Stoping the timber from soaking up moisture from rainfall and preventing Wet Rot from forming.
UV Radiation from the sun is also harmful to timber, causing Board warping, cracking and cupping. UV light sealer is high on the list of after-care for garden buildings to maintain good healthy timber.
