Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment is perfect for all exterior wood, including log cabins, summer houses, sheds, fences and decking. Adds additional protection to wood that has been previously pressure treated or treated with an exterior wood preservative.

Ensure surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from loose dirt and other surface contaminants.

  1. Repellent coatings such as paints, varnishes and coating type stains must be fully removed by sanding or using a suitable exterior paint and varnish remover
  2. Sweep the surface with a stiff broom or brush to remove all traces of surface dirt, debris, mould, algae or fungi
  3. Treat areas affected by algae, mould and mildew with a Barrettine Mould and Mildew Cleaner
  4. Applying 2 coats of Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative is recommended prior to using this product
  5. Allow the wood preservative a minimum of 48 hours to dry before applying Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment

Always do a small test area to confirm performance and compatibility before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times. Stir thoroughly prior to and during application to ensure a consistent finish.

  1. Decant in to a paint kettle or other suitable container
  2. Apply liberally, working the oil into the surface of the wood and brushing in the direction of the wood grain
  3. For best results apply to all external sides of log cabins, sheds and decking prior to construction
  4. Remove any excess surface oil to avoid extended drying times
  5. Normally, one coat applied liberally with a wide bristle brush is sufficient
  6. Should you apply a further second coat, it may be applied after 12-24 hours, depending on the type of wood
  7. Some hard / oily exotic hard woods such as Iroko, Teak, Idigbo and Cedar may only absorb 1 thin coat
  8. If desired, Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment may be applied by synthetic roller or sprayer, however you should always back brush to ensure even coverage
  9. For decking boards leave 24-48 hours before subjecting to heavy foot traffic

Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment can be easily maintained with an application of a thin maintenance coat as and when required, usually every couple of years or as a yearly maintenance program, by simply following the preparation and application sections above.

Easy to apply and does a great job of waterproofing by Lea Tones

Bought this to protect my 12ft x 8ft tanilised log lap shed. No need to prime with any other products, applied straight on with a brush and went on great. Have just done 1 x coat for now to protect shed and already water beads lovely. Will apply second coat when its a bit warmer. 5ltr can should be ample for 2 x coats

Easy to apply, covers well will use again next year by Carl Mitchell

I bought this product to protect my log cabin without painting it or changing the color too much, I paid for a wood finish and wanted to keep it, it brushes on well and for the second coat sprayed it on and brushed it through. Looks great and will do it again next year.

Good product, easy to use and goes a long way by Ray P

Used it a number of times before and found it easy to use and it lasts well. On a still day when it's warm the fumes from a large shed can be a bit heady so best done when there is a slight breeze. I found pouring from a full tin to be a bit messy as the liquid is just like water

Fantastic Product, can highly recommend it by Laura Adams

I used this product on my husbands log cabin. We were keen to retain the natural colour of the wood and we were able to achieve this with this product. Brilliant coverage and very easy to apply. We will definitely purchase this product again in the future.

Used this to put on our lodge after pressure washing by JOYCE NEVISON

Used a sprayer with attached brush to put on our lodge, so easy, doesn't clog the nozzle at all. Might need a second coat.

Very easy to apply and leaves a natural looking finish by Richard Hester

Gave my new Garden Room and store 2coats of Barratine for log cabins, with great results. Hopefully this will prolong the life of all the woodwork.

Easy to apply and looks very nice by Mr Andrew Upton

I bought this to replace the wax based product recommended by the garage manufacturers as it appears to have suffered badly from sun damage after only a year. Had to give the timber a light rub down in order to ensure any remaining wax didn't impede the application of the log cabin treatment. This proved to be very easy to apply and although it is advertised as clear, actually gives the timber a golden hue which looks really nice. After a few heavy storms water appears to bead nicely on the surface. Unfortunately, it's too late now to comment on it's UV stability but so far so good.

Seems to be a good product, easy to apply by BikerBob76

One side of my garden shed, which is clad with pine featherboard planks and is painted with Cuprinol Forest Green Ducksback, has been suffering from water penetration when subjected to driving rain so I have overpainted this side with the Barrrettine Log Cabin Treatment. It was easy to apply but I have yet to find out if it is successful in stopping water penetrating the planks. It needs some driving rain conditions.

Perfect by Miss D Baker

This product was exactly what we needed but just couldn't find in the usual diy stores. Love the natural look of the end result and does what it's supposed to do when it rains! Would probably look at spraying it on though next year when the time comes to renew as I tended to treat my arm as well on the highest points of the cabin! Apart from that we are really pleased with the entire Wood Finishes Direct experience.
