This specially formulated wood preservative gives colour and protection to sheds, fences, trellis and other rough sawn and smooth planed timber around the garden.
How do you prepare your garden shed for preservative? What is the best wood treatment? How often do you apply it? All questions that we hear on a regular basis. Take a look at our blog post about garden shed maintenance, where we go into some of the finer detail behind keeping your shed in good tip top condition.
Ensure all wooden surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dirt and debris. Areas that have been affected by mould, algae or fungi should be treated with Fungicidal Wash prior to applying Ronseal shed and fence treatment. Any surface coatings such as paint, varnish or stain must be fully removed.
Wood that has become decayed should be removed and replaced prior to the application of Ronseal shed and fence treatment. Cut out and burn all decayed wood at least 45cm beyond the area of damage.
Ronseal wood preservative must be well shaken or stirred prior and during application to ensure a consistent colour.
Ronseal Shed and Fence Preservative can be brush applied or by dipping the timber into the product. Wood preservative can be spray applied with a suitable solvent spray system and safety equipment. Where possible, end grain should be dipped or given extra coats to ensure the best possible protection.
