Hi Fifer I personally wouldn't paint it ,I would use a wood preservative and let it soak in.

Ps good choice of colours they said if you use a high gloss clear varnish the birds will see it from the race point so got that as well :emoticon-0136-giggle: :emoticon-0136-giggle: :emoticon-0136-giggle: :emoticon-0136-giggle:

If wood is treated it should not need painted "Ask any joiner"

Your very correct.

MKM KIRKCALDY is not going to be used again, as they have sold an inferior product which doesn't do what its supposed to do.

Im awaiting an answer for the Manager, to see what his take is.

Archie has been let down, quite rightly so, as I've been let down, and i will be doing all i can to help rectify it, and very soon.

All previous timber has been purchased from MGM Glenrothes, and never had any issues.

MKM states its only treated against rot and wood bourne insects???? and not weather. False advertising there then, as "treated" would suggest its weather proof.

They're recommendation is to treat the wood straight away.

I wont fall for that one again, lesson learnt :-(
