There is a great range of wood preserving products on the market and with due care and attention the lifespan of wooden windows and fixtures can be greatly extended. The addition of awnings can also help.

The vanity below is using a one coat product. Once the correct stain colour was identified the colour match and finish made my client very happy.

These windows were installed in 1972 and have never seen paint – only Cabots stain and varnish and they are as sound as the day they were installed. Just the regular application of product has kept them in great nick

Previous owners had cut a channel to pass out the drain hose of the washing machine. My solution was to backfill the channel with wood, flush over and when painted up it looked as good as new. Cost less than $100 and in this instance less invasive than replacing the whole window sill.
