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.

Allow 24 hours drying time between coats of shed and fence preservative.

Arrived on time, does what it says on the can by Brian Jowett

Have used this product before. This latest version has more colouring pigment and covers well. Used on new unpainted fence (18 months old) and absorption was much more than expected and allowed for in calculating quantity needed. Would buy again but ignore coverage claimed by manufacturer.

Very good quality by Mike Plummer

Easy to apply and soaks into the wood quickly. It still allows the wood texture to be seen under the new colour..

Expensive but good stuff by David

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!

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
