The Benefits of Choosing Premium Outdoor Wood Stains and Treatments

When it comes to preserving and enhancing the beauty of your outdoor wood structures, choosing the right stains and treatments is crucial. While there are various options available in the market, opting for premium products can make a significant difference in the long-term protection and appearance of your wood.


In this blog, we will explore the types of stains on the market, the compelling benefits of choosing premium outdoor wood stains and treatments, as well as highlighting why they are worth the investment.


Types of Wood Stains for Outdoor Furniture

There are two types of wood stains and treatments for your exterior timber – solvent based, and water based. Each type offers unique benefits, and the best option will depend on your unique preferences and needs.


Solvent Based Stains and Treatments

Solvent based stains or treatments are widely known for standing the test of time and their durability. They penetrate the timber deeply, offering a rich and vibrant colour that lasts for a long time. Take a look at the key benefits of Timbashield’s solvent based product, Wood Protector for exterior wood:


  • Contains a unique blend of oils, resin and waxes that soaks deeply into the wood, building up a protective layer from within.
  • Leaves a highly water-resistant finish that protects the wood from the effects of weathering. The coating will not crack, flake, peel or blister due to the microporous and breathable nature of the stain.
  • Available in a range of natural colours, Timbashield’s Wood Protector not only enhances the beauty of the wood grain, but it also provides a highly water, UV, and fungal resistant coating with the use of a dry film protection biocide.
  • Easy to apply and quick drying, the product is perfect for use on sheds, fences and general outdoor furniture and can be used on a range of wood types.


Water Based Stains and Treatments

Water based stains are the popular choice for those who like a quick job and an easy clean up. With their lower VOC contents and quick drying capabilities, these are ideal for those looking for a quick job in the garden. Take a look at the key benefits of Timbashield’s water based products, Wood Preserver, Shed & Fence Protector, Water Sealer, and Decking Protector.


Wood Preserver:

  • Wood Preserver is a ready to use water-based primer/preservative, formulated to protect bare wood against woodworm, moulds, wood destroying and wood discolouring blue stain fungi.
  • Easily penetrates the inner layers of the wood, acting as a moisture regulating primer, prior to over coating with an appropriate topcoat.
  • This high-quality product helps to prevent rot and decay of the treated timber, prolonging the lifespan of the wood.
  • For amateur use on all outside timber which is out of direct ground contact and/or surface water. Surface biocide for amateur use against fungal and algal growth on masonry, brickwork, wood, and metal.


Shed & Fence Protector:

  • The breathable stain helps to seal the wooden surface to leave a hydrophobic, breathable coating that will not crack, flake, peel, or blister.
  • One coat is enough for the coating to regulate moisture, reducing swelling and shrinkage, and leave a highly water-resistant coating.
  • Formulated for easy use, the product clings to the brush, reducing dripping on surrounding areas.
  • Water -based alternative to traditional solvent-based stains with only trace VOC content-without sacrificing quality.


Water Sealer:

  • Timbashield Water Sealer is a high performance, transparent water sealer and repellent. It will not crack, peel, or blister due to the penetration into the wood.
  • Water Sealer uses silicone technology that is designed specifically for use on wood to seal the wood against damage from water absorption over time by keeping the water content in the wood very low.


Decking Protector:

  • Designed as a low VOC, high performing alternative to traditional decking oils with superior performance.
  • Deeply penetrates the wood to enhance resistance to water swelling that can cause wood cracking and warping.
  • The stain leaves a natural surface appearance and leaves a coating that will not crack, flake, or blister.
  • Long lasting and durable, Timbashield Decking Protector maintains a high level of water resistance on horizontal surfaces that are prone to extended contact with water.


Now that you understand the unique uses and capabilities of water based and solvent based stains and treatments, let’s look at why choosing premium products is worth the investment for your outdoor space.


Superior Protection

Premium outdoor wood stains and treatments offer enhanced protection against harsh weather conditions, UV rays, moisture, and fungal growth. Their advanced formulations penetrate deep into the wood, creating a robust barrier that shields against rotting, warping, and deterioration. With premium products, you can ensure your wood stays in optimal condition for years to come, meaning you are saving money in the long run as you are using less products and are less likely to replace your outdoor timber as often.


Long-Lasting Durability

Investing in premium wood stains and treatments ensures long-lasting durability. These products are designed to withstand the test of time, providing extended protection, and maintaining the structural integrity of your wood. They resist fading, cracking, and peeling, ensuring your outdoor structures remain vibrant and beautiful even in the face of challenging outdoor elements.
