advice

RSPB nest boxes are made with thick timber and will survive for many years, even without the use of preservatives.
If you do want to protect your nestbox further, use a water-based preservative (preferably one that complies with standard EN71 part 3 as safe for children's toys). Such paint/preservative types are clearly marked on the container, and are available from DIY stores and hardware shops.
Preservatives should only be applied to the outside of the box. Apply in the winter, when there is a low likelihood of occupancy. This will allow time for any remaining volatile components to evaporate.
For more information about siting a nest box please see the Advice section of the main RSPB website.

Nice design
This box is made from the same quality timber and a similar design as the Apex Classic boxes but with an open front so it doesn't need a hinged side panel for cleaning. It has the same top and bottom rear fixings. Maybe I'm being a little bit overconcerned or pedantic but the one that I purchased has a slight gap where the two pieces of timber meet at the front of the apex roof but it will be well hidden and sheltered by Ivy so hopefully, no excessive rain will get in.

Roof warped / cracked after a couple of months outside.
The roof of this box has warped badly on one side, pulling the fixing nail out of the other side of the roof. Also a crack has formed in the warped roof panel. Very poor quality at any price and certainly not worth buying.
