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 with 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 mould and mildew treatment
  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.

Wood knot use anything else by Bill Bradnock

After spending a lot of my hard earned cash on a man cave, I needed a top class finish on the wood to beat the weather. Found it with this product. An annual job, but well worth it. Now back to my man cave to watch sports.

Easy to use, great coverage by Christopher Anniwell

Purchased this for my new log cabin, spent ages online looking at all the different types from everywhere. Chose this from wood finish direct. Delivered next morning, was easier to apply than expected and even with putting it on heavily it went further than expected, have a whole tin left for next year. After allowing to dry a couple of days hadn't had any rain so hot the hose out to see if it dies what it claims? The water beaded up and rolled of the wood.

Excellent by Paul Douglas

Superb protection, very easy to apply, goes a long way. Two coats over Barretine Preservative is plenty. Leaves a slightly waxy finish.

This is my second can! Easy to apply Need to keep applying every year by Bill

Protects the wood well as long as you apply at beginning and end of summer. I applied this treatment to wood which I had treated with preservative. It is well worth applying 3 coats right from the start. It has enabled me to keep the natural wood finish on my summer house.
