Softwood windows.

About to install a brand new softwood window. I'll clearly be painting it when done, but should I treat the frame which will be in contact with the render/brick/block/damp proof membrane with something before installing it?

I would give it a couple of coats of a decent wood treatment before painting it and ensure any holes drilled for fixing are treated as well. Of course check the treatment is paintable but I think most are.

dulux weathershield is pretty good
