Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver is ideal for most exterior wood care projects, including sheds, fences, exterior windows and frames, doors, carports, shutters, garden gates and more. This product can be used as a standalone treatment or as a base-coat for a protective exterior wood oil or decking oil.
Barrettine Premier Wood Preservative contains a small amount of wax making it unsuitable for use with water-based paints, varnishes and stains. Instead we recommend the wax and silicone-free product Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative.
Please Note: The UV resistance only applies to the coloured variations, but not to the clear
Ensure that wooden surfaces to be treated with Barrettine Wood Preserver are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris and other surface contaminates.
Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Only apply in temperatures of between 10°C and 30°C. Shake or stir well prior to and during application to ensure a consistent colour.
*Although the solvent content of this product can perish the washers and hoses of some spray systems, it can still be a time and cost effective way to treat large areas. We recommend that if using a spray system you try to complete the project in one day. This said however, depending on the type and brand of sprayer, it may take longer than this.
After use, paint brushes can be cleaned with Barrettine Brush Cleaner or Barrettine Paint Brush Restorer.
To seal in the preservative and provide better weather protection, wood can be overcoated with a suitable wood oil or a decking oil
Wood treated with Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver can be easily maintained by applying a fresh maintenance coat on a yearly or 2 yearly basis as required.
Q. Is this all I need to protect my summer house?
This product is commonly used on its own on sheds and fences and other exterior items constructed of rough wood, however for a total treatment we recommend over-coating with Barrettine Log Cabin Treatment or Clear Barrettine Decking Oil for added water repellency and weather protection.
If protecting the natural colour of the wood is important, use the clear preservative then overcoat with Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra or Fiddes Exterior High Build Wood Oil.
Q. Can I use Barrettine Wood Preservative on a chicken shed and dog kennel?
Barrettine Wood Preservative is perfectly safe to use on any surface that comes into contact with animals when dry. This includes but is not limited to dog kennels, chicken sheds and houses, horse stables and more. It's important to remember that this wood preservation treatment should be over-coated with a suitable exterior wood oil or decking oil. Animals should only come into contact with the surface of the wood when both the wood preserver and oil have fully dried.
