As mentioned, all wood used by Bramble Wood Products is treated, but the colour will begin to fade and turn slightly grey over time. To prevent this and make the house watertight, the playhouse will need to be painted at some stage.
For our painted houses we use Dulux Weathershield for Wood or Cuprinol Colour Range. These are the recommended products you should use if you want to paint the house yourself. If you're going for a more natural look then we recommend using an external wood stain, preferably Ronseal. We suggest doing this every five years to extend the lifespan of your playhouse. Never use yacht varnish to stain your wooden playhouse as the wood will not be able to breathe or expand and contract.
