Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver can be used as a stand alone treatment or as a pre-treatment. For added protection, It can be used on any garden wood and over coated with an exterior wood oil from Ronseal.

Take a look at our blog post on garden shed maintenance, where we go into some of the finer detail behind keeping your shed in good tip top condition.

New Bare Timber

  • Ensure all wooden surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dirt and debris

Previously Coated Timber

  • Any surface coatings such as paint, varnish or stain must be fully removed and sanded back to bare wood

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
  • Traces of mould, algae or fungi must be removed with a stiff brush or scraper
  • Areas that have been affected by mould, algae or fungi should be treated with a suitable exterior wood cleaner prior to applying Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver

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. Avoid contact with bitumen, bitumen felt, mastics and plastics.

  1. Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver can be brush applied or by dipping the timber into the product, and can be spray applied with a suitable solvent spray system and safety equipment
  2. Where possible, end grain should be dipped or given extra coats to ensure the best possible protection
  3. Apply 2 coats for eradication of woodworm in roof joists, floorboards, joinery and small timbers; 3 coats for eradication of dry and wet rot and insect attack in existing or replacement timbers
  4. Allow 24 hours drying time between coats

Once dry, this preservative can be over-coated with a suitable Ronseal exterior finish. When over-coating and for the best results, always follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Wood treated with Ronseal preservative can be easily maintained by applying a fresh maintenance coat on a yearly or 2 yearly basis as required.

Please Note: If this product is over-coated with a clear decking oil, it will last for around 5 years. This is only if the decking oil is re-applied and maintained on a yearly basis.

Good product! Shake well!!! by James Penman

Needs a good shake to mix up the waxy waterproofing ingredients, otherwise these will be left at the bottom of the can. I applied with a paint sprayer which did a good job, came out a bit darker in colour than I was expecting but nothing upsetting.

Excellent Product, Price and Service by M J Morgan

The product is quick and easy to apply by brush and provides good coverage. It is a little more expensive than water based products, but the recoating of my shed and fence panels will not be as frequent. The light brown colour I bought is perhaps a little darker than you might expect but looks very smart against the concrete posts and gravel boards.I am very pleased with the finished appearance which is perhaps more mid brown than light brown.

So much better than the same product that I bought 2 yrs before by Pam Hartley

I had bought this product 2 yrs before. I used it and had one tin left. I used it on my fence this year and it was very 'thin and sort of watery'. I ordered more and it was a totally different product- waxy and I was very happy. 2 coats and has repelled the incessant rain that we get in Wales.

Expensive but does what it says by A J Crawshay-Williams

We have extensive fencing and sheds so bought many tins of this. I covered well but must be shaken vigorously before and during use to keep the colour pigment mixed or you get varying shades

Lovely colour by Dionne Rooney

Needed more than 1 coat with brush when put on silvered aged fencing. However will last a season and will add another coat next year. Used 2 tubs for 13 panels, 1 coat, 1 side! With brush. But does look great.
