All York Timber Products sheds, workshops and buildings are fully tanalised to give you a ten-year anti-rot guarantee. Tanalised, pressure-treated timber gives you all the natural beauty of real wood, combined with unbeatable weatherproofing.

Our fully tanalised, pressure-treated timber products give you:

  • Proven, long-term protection against fungal decay and insect attack, including termites.
  • Excellent colour durability – initially green in colour, mellowing to a warm brown to blend perfectly with natural surroundings.
  • Protection indoors and out, either in ground, above ground or in water contact.
  • Ten-year anti-rot guarantee.

Natural appearance, exceptional durability

Tanalised pressure-treated timber has excellent colour durability. The treated timber takes on an appealing, natural green colouration, which slowly weathers to a warm honey brown and gradually fades to a silver grey. Independent tests have confirmed the exceptional colour properties of tanalised timber compared to wood treated with alternative preservatives.

Maintaining your tanalised shed

Tanalised, pressure-treated timber does not have to be painted or stained to maintain its preservative properties. However, decorative coatings can be used, as can brush-on water-repellent products. For protection against water damage, we recommend that you regularly apply oil based water-repellent treatments.
