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.

  • Wash any contamination from skin and eyes immediately
  • Do not breath wood preserver vapour / spray
  • Keep away from children
  • Keep away from sources of ignition - No Smoking
  • Keep Ronseal Wood Preservative away from food, drink and animal feed
  • Keep away from water storage tanks, drains and other water sources

If swallowed, do not induce vomiting - Seek medical attention immediately and show the container or label.

Good, but darker than expected by Reg G

I had previously used a different makers product which was described as Acorn Brown colour. I was very happy with that product but it is no longer available. I wanted to continue to use high VOC and not water-based, and the nearest seemed to be this light-brown product. However I was disappointed with the colour and have since ordered Autumn Brown instead.

Brilliant preserver, easy application by Neil J Stewart

This product is first and foremost a preserver against rot and burrowing bugs. If you want a nice bright and bold coloured shed/ fence, buy something else. If you want a pest and rot free shed with a stain that highlights the stunning grains,nots and natural beauty of wood then this is for you. The best finish will need 3 coats so bare this I mind.

Arrived on time and & well packaged easy to spray and brush on by John Williams

First class product and does not smell too strong. Time will tell how good it is. Word of warning the order and tin stated "light brown" turned out a rather dark oak type of colour rather than pine type of colour. It is a shed paint so is fine. What does their idea of dark brown look like?

Product ordered before 4pm and it arrived the next day as promised by DAVID PARKER

The product is oil based and only needed one coat. I prefer it to water based and think it will last a lot longer.

I have used this product for several years now, and it seems to do the job. Easy to apply with consistent quality and value for money compared with alternatives.

Provides good coverage but doesn't seem to last for as long as it says. Probably something to do with the prep we do beforehand.
