Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment is perfect for use on most exterior timber structures, including sheds, fences, trellises, pergolas and wooden gazebos.

Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris, mould, algae and other surface contaminates.

New or Bare Timber

Previously Coated Timber

  • Any previous surface coatings such as paint, varnish or stain must be fully removed by sanding back to bare wood or using a paint stripper, unless it's a wood preservative treatment

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 and biological growth
  • Areas affected by mould, algae or fungi should be cleaned with a stiff brush or scraper then treated with Barrettine Mould and Mildew Cleaner
  • Any existing instances of woodworm can be treated with Barrettine Premier Woodworm Killer
  • Fill any gaps or splits in the wood with a suitable wood filler

Always do a small test area before starting any project to assess compatibility and end result. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Please Note: Wood should be dry for 24 hours before application and rain should not be forecast for at least 48 hours after application to achieve maximum benefit. Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment is best applied in temperatures between 5℃ - 25℃. Do not apply below 5℃ or in direct sunlight.

Shake or stir well prior to and during application to ensure a consistent colour.

  1. Apply Barrettine Wood Treatment evenly with a brush, in the direction of the wood grain
  2. Apply 2-3 coats for optimum protection
  3. Leave a minimum of 6 hours drying time between coats, longer with smoother wood or with less favourable drying conditions

Cleaning Equipment

After use, brushes can be cleaned with Barrettine Brush Cleaner or Barrettine Paint Brush Restorer.


Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment can be easily maintained as and when required by adding a fresh coat, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.

Brilliant! Really pleased with it by Mrs J Dayman

Oil based so water resistant after a couple of coats. I’ll be buying some more!

Easy to use and covered well by Gareth Cooper

After using some water based products in the past this has performed better by being fully absorbed in to rough sawn timber. Two coats were used. The main test now is to see how the product performs over time. But I will also be trying it on previously pressure treated timber.

Easy to apply by Andy Noon

Easy to apply and finished clear as described and easy to follow the application. Seems very good and I am really pleased with the finish. The company who sold m the shed uses this on everything they buy which is why I got this but a bit difficult to rate a long term product so soon.

So easy to apply and works a treat highly recommended by Richard B

Used it on our summerhouse and wow came up just like new. As its oil based it tends to go deeper in to the wood and gives it a real lift....fab product and will be using it again. Don't think ill ever use anything else from now on.

This reminds me of the old Creosote product and being oil based should give extended lfe coverage.

Quick delivery by Mr Robert Murray-Willis

I found the labelling confusing. Which is the primer or undercoat and which is the finish coat?

A note from us...

Good Afternoon,

Apologies for any confusion that you have had with this product, many of the Barrettine products are very similar in name and appearance. To clarify the Premier Universal and the Premier Wood Preservative are preservatives that should be applied first and then the the Protective Treatment can follow with two or three coats for the best results.

I hope that helps and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us on 01303 213838.

All the Best Samantha.
