    "As regards rot protection for timber you can buy timber pre treated this is normally classed as Tanalised or you may see Tanailth E. This is available in the same sizes as standard timber and available every where .
    This is the same timber as is used outdoors, you can also treat cuts with a product call Endsell end cut treatment."

    "Hi, if it’s a new stud that you are building and you are worried about Dry or wet rot, then I advise using pressure treated timber, which is therefor ‘weatherproof’ and won’t absorb water. If it’s one that is currently erected then try roxil on the parts you are worried about or the parts that have shown signs of rot."
