    Hi

    Just had our summerhouse delivered which is softwood shiplap what is the best way to protect it?

    We are going to treat it before they come back to fit it together.

    Thanks

    I'm a big fan of Ronseal Wood Preserver : http://www.ronseal.co.uk/garden-woodcare/wood-preserver

    I used the 'Shed and Fence Preserver' on my new fence panels recently and you can see the rain water beading on the top cap.

    The downsides are that they're not cheap and they're high in VOCs, but if you want to do the job properly then they're better (and should last longer) than the water-based equivalents.
