New Formula Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver colours, preserves and waterproofs exterior wood. The 2-in-1 formula preserves and protects your investment against rot and decay.
Can be applied to rough, sawn and smooth timber. This solvent based product can be brushed or sprayed (although a spray system that is suitable for solvent based materials must be used).
Note: New improved formula for 2016 provides protection against wood discolouring fungi. New formula consistency and colour shades may vary to the old formula.
This specially formulated wood preservative gives long lasting colour and protection to sheds, fences, trellis and other rough sawn and smooth planed timber around the garden.
Note: Although Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver will help to prevent woodworm in the first place, it will not cure existing infestations. To kill existing woodworm infestations, use Ronseal Woodworm Killer.
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.
Always do a test area and allow to fully dry to assess product suitability and final colour before starting any project. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the tin at all times.
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.
Ronseal Shed and Fence Preservative should be given 24 hours drying time between applications if additional coats are required.
Avoid contact with bitumen, bitumen felt, mastics and plastics.
Clean brushes immediately after using this wood treatment with White Spirit.
Keep this wood treatment in its original container. Tin should be tightly closed and stored in a safe well ventilated place away from sources of heat and ignition.
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting - Seek medical attention immediately and show the container or label.
Allow 24 hours drying time between coats of shed and fence preservative.
Easy to apply and soaks into the wood quickly. It still allows the wood texture to be seen under the new colour..
I used this product a couple of year ago to treat a fence which had been neglected and was showing some early signs of rot. A couple of coats produced a good finish and I'm still pleased with the result. The preservatives which it contains help to prevent rot and eliminate woodworm. Cheaper, coloured water repellents are OK for wood in good condition but this stuff is probably better for older wood in need of attention. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. I bought this latest tin for similar projects.
Easy to use and clean brushes afterwards. Looks good - nice natural wood colour. Hope it can withstand the sun, wind & rain that it will be subjected to - only time will tell!
Easy to apply, good coverage, well pleased with the result and knowing it preserves as well as colours a rich dark shade.
Amazing forest green colour which if used yearly produceeass a waterproof seal on any shed or fence and colour lasts from year to year. Easy to apply and dries pretty quick. Soaks in well unlike some products. Use on new wood from the start and you wont use anything else.
Ronseal dose what it says on the tin?
This is my second order for the ronseal shed and fence preserver and being a professional decorator a long lasting good looking finish is essential to my customers , this product ticks all the boxes
An excellent product that again does exactly what it says on the tin, nice colour matching even after a few years between coats,very good at rain exclusion and sun discolouring,would most certainly purchase again.
Easy to use, good quality
We are still trying out this fence treatment as and when the weather permits, but so far it is looking as if we will be using it extensively in due course.
as a returning customer the product is great and great value for money a lot cheeper to buy from you than else where
The best on the market great price and firm to buy from
I would 100% recommend the product and the excellent service i received.
first class product at 1st class price.
The preserver went on well and had good penetration so I achieved what I wanted - a dense black finish. Three coats were recommended but I felt two coats were sufficient
Really easy to use. Nice, dense black. Great coverage with one coat.
Well pleased with the product, easy to apply, and beautiful finish. yes VERY WELL PLEASED
The shade of brown was just what I wanted.
We had bought a tin prior to ordering from Wood Finishes from our local diy store and already painted the shed and 3 panels. Unfortunately, although we purchased the exact same shade and product it came out much darker! So we would always suggest starting and finishing with the same purchase. A lesson learned, buy the complete amount from same supplier. Delivery was very prompt after order submitted. Would definitely purchase from Wood Finishes again.
Thank you for your feedback, Ronseal Shed and Fence have recently changed the formula of Shed and Fence and this has caused a difference in some of the colours from the old stock to the new, particularly the Light Brown.
Here at wood Finishes Direct we have had the new stock Ronseal in since Christmas but it may be that many stockist are still supplying the old formula. I am sorry that you have had this issue with your purchase and if there is anything I can help with please don't hesiatate to get in touch.
Kind regards Sam
Ordered four tins. Stirring in the tin was not easy so I had to shake the tin like fury to ensure the pigment was well mixed. Loved the colour which was near enough the same as the example shown on the website. Pouring from the tin was very awkward and messy. Ronseal really should address this problem - I think a pull-out pouring spout is needed. I opted to apply 2 coats by brush and managed well enough having poured an amount into a plastic bucket. Coverage was pretty much as described. Overall I am delighted with the colour, the finish and the waterproofing. An excellent product.
