Protecting Wooden Decks with Siloxol

A growing number of homeowners choose to improve their garden by installing wooden decking, which adds to a home's practical, aesthetic, and financial value. As a natural material, the timber used to build such structures needs robust protection from the elements to maintain its condition: one of the most effective ways to provide this is by using Siloxol Wood Protection Cream or Liquid, available now from Twistfix.

With winter just around the corner, there has never been a better time to protect wooden decks with Siloxol. In addition to preserving decking, one can also use the products successfully to protect any softwood structures located outdoors, including garden furniture, plant containers, sheds, fences and more.

Siloxol wood protection products from Twistfix imbue softwood timber with powerful, long-lasting water-repellent properties by signi­­fic­­antly reducing the timber's ability to uptake water. The treatment dramatically minimises the potential for warping, staining and growth of damaging algae and mould, reducing maintenance requirements and ensuring that the deck will remain attractive and provide an extended service.

Both Siloxol Wood Protection Liquid and Cream dry clear, colourless and invisible.
