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.

Allow 24 hours drying time between coats of shed and fence preservative.
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.
Have used this preservative for many years on wooden fences that I erected twenty years ago wood is still perfect I just make sure to brush coat once a year although if your not to fussy I'm sure you could do it every two years if you don't want your wood to rot this does the job at an unbeatable price
The first batch of three tins was thick dispite shaking the tins as instructed and the colour is more of a dark brown/grey colour. The second batch of two tins to finish off the job was thinner, ran very easily and was more like a nice light brown. We mixed what was left of the first batch with some of the second lighter batch to finish the job. The fence is darker than expected. Time and some sunshine may help. Look forward to hearing from you with some constructive comments. Kind Regards, Anthony toon
Thank you for your feedback.
Ronseal have indeed changed the formulation of this product recently. Although most of the colour shades remain very similar to the old, It has been reported that the light brown is somewhat darker.
We have added some additional text to this product page to highlight that the consistency and colour shade of the new Ronseal formula differs from the old.
Thank you for sharing your experience with this product.
Used this product for years.
Easy to apply,great colour
Excellent however it will only be proven be by is longevity
Quick and simple to use. Agitate tin frequently to maintain a consistent colour.
I gave the tin a long shake but still failed to mix it thoroughly. Next time I'll decant it into a bucket and mix it with a stick. Otherwise, a really good product.
This is the second time I have purchased this product from Wood Finishers Direct and I am very pleased with the product and the the supplier and would recommend it to any of my friends and acquaintances.
Perfect for the job, and above all it was at the right price.
Did not drip, covered well with two coats. Easy to use.
Excellent, does do exactly what it says on the tin.
Well packaged goods which arrived very quickly.....Two coats of this wood stain cover very well, very pleased with the product.
Great coverage and very easy to apply.
I like this product very much. I coat the shed and fence panels ones every year, great coverage and very easy to apply.
Easy to apply. Good for smooth planed wood, as well as rough.
Great product that covers well and is easy to apply. I used it last year on a small section of fence but now have 15 fence panels to paint, so needed a good product that will last.
Excellent product, thin, very absorbent. Slightly translucent . Dark brown is a nice finish, not too dark.
use this product to keep all soft wood garden products in good nick,I used it on soft wood sleepers quick and easy, the colour is great, and it looks great.
