A range of remedial preservatives are available for use by the home handyman, and by the trades. These products are generally applied to exposed timber resulting from cutting, drilling or machining timber on site. They provide some measure of protection against decay, termites, water ingress etc. However, remedial treatments like these should not be used to replace commercially applied preservatives.
In addition, this group of preservatives also contains products for the home-handyman and for commercial application by, for example, the utility companies to poles for application to remedy in situ decay and insect attack.
