Hi. Can anyone advise on a suitable protection for a pressure treated 10x8 summerhouse.. it's been installed since September and would like to get it done before it's to hot and before next winter. Keeping a natural look if possible. Not sure if to use paint or stain. Or even if it needs doing at all being that it's pressure treated. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Feel that you should use something on it, just so you maximise its potential lifetime.
A wood preserver would be the way to go, something like a Barretine wood preserver, comes in clear, not too expensive and does everything you’d want it to. Sold at tool station.
Make sure whatever you choose has uv protection(essential) as well as rot/mould/algae etc.
Hope this is helpful 🙂
