Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment is perfect for most exterior timber structures such as Sheds, Fences, Trellises, Pergolas and Timber Gazebos.

Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris, mould, algae and other surface contaminates.

New or Bare Timber

Previously Coated Timber

  • Any previous surface coatings such as paint, varnish or stain must be fully removed and sanded back to bare wood, unless it's a wood preservative treatment

Old Timber

  • Wood that has become decayed should be removed and replaced
  • Cut out and burn all decayed wood at least 45cm beyond the area of damage
  • Brush down the wood with a stiff broom or brush to remove any ingrained surface dirt and biological growth
  • Areas affected by mould, algae or fungi should be cleaned with a stiff brush or scraper then treated with Barrettine Mould and Mildew Cleaner

Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Shake or stir well prior to and during application to ensure a consistent colour.

Please Note: Wood should be dry for 24 hours before application and rain should not be forecasted for at least 48 hours after application to achieve maximum benefit. Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment is best applied in temperatures between 5℃ - 25℃. Do not apply below 5℃ or in direct sunlight.

  1. Apply Barrettine Wood Treatment evenly with a brush, in the direction of the wood grain
  2. Leave a minimum of 6 hours drying time between coats, longer with smoother wood or with less favourable drying conditions
  3. Apply 2-3 coats for optimum protection

Covers and protects well by Ned Wilsher

This treatment seems quite watery, but don’t be misled as to quality. It’s lack of treacleness means it is easy to apply with no sticky, pulling of the brush. I applied three test coats. Water did not penetrate after the second coat.

So far so good by David Rayfield

I bought this product on the recommendation of a local garden centre. I have now treated two sheds with it. The product was easy to apply and no problem cleaning brushes. The sheds look good six months later. I look forward to this continuing into the future.

Great company, great service, great product by John Cporfe

Great service all round. Excellent value for money, easy to order and couldn't have been easier to use. The next day the rain simply rolled off. Barrettine from Wood Finishes Direct was recommended to me by my son and I will certainly recommend both to others.

Should offer protection for a few years by John David Castle

this product I found is quite oily and seems to absorb into the wood quite well, I found the colour a bit darker than expected but overall was easy to apply, needs to be shaken very well before use

Easy to apply by Lin Ross

So easy to apply - at first i thought this wood protective treatment seemed a bit 'thin' and was not sure if it was going to be effective, however after one coat on the garden table , followed by a down-pour of rain the following day, i was delighted to see rain droplets did not penetrate the wood and just rolled off..!! I have since treated the garden shed and summer house. Very pleased with result.

Easy to apply, good finish, water repellant by Happy Householder

This is a thinnish liquid so be prepared for drips & splashes & don't use near your cherished car on a windy day! Have used it on fences & garden shed with good results. Easy to apply with a brush but probably thin enough to spray. Good coverage but it rapidly soaks up on previously untreated timber, so allow for this when ordering as a minimum of 2 coats will be required. Seems to be very good water repellancy once dry. A better product IMO than cheaper branded options & worth the extra money. Will definitely buy again.

Excellent; easy to apply; perfect for the job by Rev. Unseemly Horseposture

Well-packaged (4 tins). The colour is just right for the intended use (exterior & interior treatment - 2 coats - of 10'x6' flatpack shed, prior to final assembly). We used a pressure sprayer for large areas, followed by small emulsion-type roller/tray plus 1" paintbrush for the crooks & nannies ;-)

Easy to use and very good result by Margaret West

Ideal treatment for rough wood. Gives a nice slight wax finish and the clear finish evens out colour variation in the wood.

Great product by Allan Davies

Great firm to do business with. All was good with the order, good delivery communication, arrived when stated an on Tim. The product was used on my log cabin, was oh so easy to apply with a pump up garden spray and is a wonderful colour, not to dark just a nice golden glow. The cabin is 3x3mtrs and I had enough for four coates with 10 ltr of course the more coates the darker the colour but I found 4 coates was enough for a good look and protection.
