Barrettine Universal Wood Preservative is the perfect undercoat for most exterior projects. This product does not contain wax which makes it ideal as a pre-treatment for water-based wood finishes such as Barrettine Country Cottage Shades.
Looking for a wood preservative with added wax, for better water repellency? Try Barrettine Premier Wood Preservative.
Ensure that wooden surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris and other surface contaminants.
Always do a small test area to confirm performance and compatibility before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Protect any surrounding soil, plants or aquatic environments from splashes of Universal Wood Preserver. Ideal application temperature is between 10-30℃. Wood should be frost-free when treated. Shake well prior to use.
Please Note: Low temperatures, increased humidity and ingredients of some wood species may increase the drying time up to 24 hours.
Wood treated with Barrettine Universal Wood Preserver can be easily maintained by applying a fresh maintenance coat on a yearly or 2 yearly basis as required.
Please note: If this product is over-coated with a clear decking oil or other exterior wood oil, it will last for up to 5 years. This is only if the exterior wood oil or decking oil finish is re-applied and maintained on a regular basis as per the guidance on the relevant product.
Q. Is this all I need to protect my summer house?
This product is commonly used on its own on sheds and fences and other exterior items constructed of rough wood, however for a total treatment we would recommend Log Cabin Treatment for added water repellency and weather protection, or Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra to also reduce the likelyhood of your log cabin from greying.
Q. Can I use Barrettine Wood Preservative on a chicken shed and dog kennel?
Barrettine Wood Preservative is perfectly safe to use on any surface that comes into contact with animals when dry. This includes but is not limited to dog kennels, chicken sheds and houses, horse stables and more. It's important to remember that this wood preservation treatment should be over-coated with a suitable exterior oil. Animals should only come into contact with the surface of the wood when both the wood preserver and oil have fully dried.
quick and easy to apply. No affect on the natural colour of the wood
Applied the three recommended coats as a base using a roller for even distribution then brush to finish. Delighted with finish and how well the top coats took afterwards. Surprised how much penetrated the timber and how quickly it dried enabling three coats to be applied in one day, perfect. The preservative seemed to evaporate from the roller tray so had to be careful with refilling the tray and recapping the can.
Fantastic product, used as a base layer on my chalet shed on new ship lap. A little goes a long way. Would definitely recommend.
Seems to be excellent. Easy and pain free to apply, didn't need more than suggested amount. Very reasonable price. Await with interest the results
Very easy to use on our new log cabin, can be brushed on or sprayed although doesn't go so far if sprayed. Quick and easy to clean brushes, or leave in water overnight and use again. Smells rather strong, head ache beware! Good value for money, very pleased.
Used this in conjunction with the Log Cabin Oil, Easy to apply by Brush, Roller or Spray Gun. Time will tell if it all works, first signs show that the rain water is running off. Looking good!
Fantastic product at a very keen price..
I used it as a stain and preservative on a set of windows I was making. I had the advice from Wood Finishes Direct and now know it contains a fungicide which will help the life on the windows. Excellent product, goes a very long way and will stay as part of my finishing product range.
Not had chance to use product as yet but I'm sure it will serve my purposes well.
As I was going to paint the timber after preserving it was good advice I received from the company and this was the best product for the job.
Great product used on new log cabin. Easy to apply, no harsh strong smell with it. It rained a few days after applying and the rain just ran off it. Would definately use again.
Sprayed my new log cabin with the preservative prior to 2 coats of decking oil. Easy to apply and looks great.
Use this on my new log cabin before final coats. Went on easily, purchased 2 tins and gave my 7mt x 2.25mt cabin 2 good coats inside and out.
3rd time I have used this product, used on decking,gate,fence,inside and out of summer house and shed.
Not much more to say really - proof of the pudding will come in a few year's time.
Easy to apply, good coverage, good penetration
I gave the outside of my shed a couple of coats and the inside just one coat at present. On a 10x8 shed, soaked in well. Very little aroma. Will be top coated with a wood protector, also from wood finishes. Will do this every couple of years.
Very easy to apply. A little runny but fine if you start at the bottom of each wall. Work systematically as it is very clear! Soaked in and dried well.
This product soaks in well and is easy to apply. If it does what it says I will be happy to use again. Has only been applied in the last month, so too soon to tell.
Used this clear, spirit based, wax free product to protect a log cabin from rot and insect infestation. Viscosity very similar to water so recommend wearing hand and eye protection especially when coating items at/above eye level. Does not contain waxes so a top coat of paint/varnish etc is required. Smell not too overpowering compared to some other preservatives. Product easily cleaned from synthetic brushes using white spirit. If you do not want to use a top coat, use Barrettine Premier Wood Preservative
