bud­get pan­els are usu­ally ‘dip treated’ in a so­lu­tion that gives the tim­ber short-term pro­tec­tion. the dip gives it an or­ange hue that will dull over time. Pres­sure-treated pan­els have been in a pres­surised ves­sel that forces the preser­va­tive so­lu­tion deeper into the tim­ber, pro­tect­ing it for longer and giv­ing it a more nat­u­ral colour. While both of these stop the wood from rot­ting, tim­ber pan­els will be more durable and look bet­ter with the ap­pli­ca­tion of a fence/shed treat­ment.
