Exterior Wood Paints
Organic, water based wood treatments that are eco friendly, are the perfect way to help save the planet. By using sustainable ingredients that help preserve the timber in your garden you can actively reduce your carbon footprint. Why not join Alan Titchmarsh and Prue Leith by using Protek paint to prolong the life of your wooden products.
Use this product if you want to waterproof your timber quickly and cheaply and still see the grain of the wood. A yearly application is required for this safe and natural wood stain to protect against the elements. Shed and Fence is a water based product enriched with a wax additive to provide a water resistant protective layer to all types of timber.
The long lasting treatment that is as easy to apply as the Shed and Fence range. A wood stain with an enhanced formula that improves the durability and increases the defences required to fight against the British weather. Eco shield is the one that suits you if you want a better quality wood stain without it being a paint - one that only needs applying every 5 years.
The most popular choice for the majority. Midway between a paint and a stain, it is quickly applied but not needed every year. A great choice of colours and the more coats you apply, the more it looks like paint. It appeals to everyone and comes highly recommended by many. This is the product by Alan Tichmarsh on ITV's 'Love Your Garden'.
Quite simply the best Eco Friendly wood paint that we have to offer. Equivalent to three coats of the wood protector, the Royal range reduces the amount of painting time and increases the length of protection. It has more organic compounds than it's closest competitor, and more protection against the weather. If you want wood paint and you want durability then THIS IS YOUR PRODUCT.
Exterior Wood Paints and Stains
To protect your timber from rotting and decaying, then some sort of wood protection will need to be painted onto the surface to keep out the UV rays and the harsh weather. This will need to be done either on a yearly basis, bi-annually or every 4-5 years depending on the quality of treatment that you use. Wood stains are usually of a thin consistency and are easy to apply, often giving a water proof coating to the surface of the timber, along with a colour that rejuvenates the appearance.
Exterior wood paint however is created using much more pigment and components, so that the treatment is much thicker in consistency. Once the exterior wood paint dries it leaves a tough outer skin that protect the timber against the weather, whilst giving the appearance of the timber looking brand new again. Exterior wood paint is likely to give you a longer lasting protection against the weather than the exterior wood stains.
Exterior Wood Paints
What's the difference between wood paints and wood stains?
The main difference between paint and stain is that paint sits on top of the surface rather than seeping into the surface. Typically a wood stain will leave a transluscent finish so that the grain is still visible after brushing on, whereas a paint is an opaque finish that covers up the wood grain. In most cases paint also needs to be painted onto surfaces that have been primed first, however our clever formula allows the wood paint to be applied directly to timber without the need for a primer, saving you time and money.
Because all of our wood treatments are eco friendly, all you have to do is choose the wood paint or stain that suits your application, safe in the knowledge that the planet is not being harmed.

Shed and Fence
A water based wood stain mixed with wax provides a fast drying water proofing coat to exterior timber. A yearly application is required, but it is the ideal wood stain for a fence, as it can easily be sprayed on. Once applied, simply rinse the brush to clean. This product shows the wood grain.
For Animal Housing
The stable coat is the ideal wood treatment to use on animal housing. It is a water-based micro-porous acrylic coating that incorporates an ultra-high performance water repellency using nanotechnology to deliver an extreme hydrophobic layer of protection. Apply this stain every couple of years.
Timber Eco Shield
Timber Eco Shield is an advanced water-based microporous timber treatment using the latest high-tech nanotechnology. It creates a long lasting waterproof wood coating that is friendly to its environment. Similar viscosity to Shed and Fence, and can easily be sprayed on.
Specifically formulated to withstand foot traffic and the elements, it is specifically for decking. Leaving behind a hard durable surface, it is a water based acrylic and Alkyd hybrid that incorporates a polyurethane dispersion based on linseed oil, which is a natural renewable resource.

NOT IN SUPERSTORES
It would be far easier to sell Protek via the big national chains. However have you noticed that the majority of products sold from these stores are cheaply produced and appeal to the masses without a conscience for where things come from and how long they last. Unfortunately this product doesn't compete well in that marketplace as the costs of producing an organic, Eco Friendly treatment, is more expensive than creating a man made synthetic equivalent.
That is why over 200 companies, ranging from shed and fence manufacturers, independent garden centres, fencing installers and farm shops, have been selling Protek as their preferred treatment range since 1990. So if you're looking for a sustainably produced timber woodcare treatment that has been ethically nourishes, protects and improves your timber, then see below for the product that suits your needs or simply...

Tell me about Woodpaints
With over 40 years in the sphere of manufacturing timber products, we have worked with a family based company that also originated in the 1980’s and provided us with water based treatments and preservatives for wood. Back in the day when Creosote and Tanalith standard products to handle, we were delighted to discover an ethically and ecologically wood treatment from a company called Protek.
Moving on 40 years, and along with literally hundreds of other timber shed and wooden fence manufacturers, we are all proud to still be users of the wood paints and timber treatments that Protek provide.
It was only recently that Protek increased their range of wood paints, wood stains and timber treatments to include a wide range of colours, qualitied and finishes. This ranges from the Shed and Fence range which is perfect for treating fence panels with a wax enhanced, water based water-proofer, right up to the Royal Exterior range which is up there with the best eco-friendly wood paints on the market. With nearly 80 colours, the Royal range of wood paint is suitable for both external and internal applications, and is one of the best exterior wood paints in the UK.
The wood stain and protection range is a wood treatment that has been created as a mid point product, which can be used as a stain if only applying one coat, or a paint if applying 2 or 3 coats. The beauty of the wood stain and protection range is that it has a much wider range of colours, as opposed to the Shed and Fence treatments or the Stable Coat.
