Ronseal 10 Year Exterior Wood Paint has been specially formulated to ensure paintwork isn't spoiled due to changing weather conditions, making it perfect for outdoor projects where protection from the elements is a crucial factor.

Ensure surfaces to be painted are clean, dry and free from traces of dirt, dust, grease or any other surface contaminants.

Bare or New Timber

  1. Lightly sand to remove any loose fibres and remove all traces of sanding dust before painting
  2. Wood can be degreased by wiping clean with a lint-free cloth dampened with white spirit
  3. Fill in any small holes or surface defects with Ronseal Multi Purpose Wood Filler, or Ronseal High Performance Wood Filler for larger repairs
  4. Treat any wood knots with an appropriate knotting solution
  5. Remove any mould growth with a mould and mildew cleaner and leave to dry
  6. For the best results, apply Ronseal's Super Flexible Primer and Undercoat before applying Ronseal Weatherproof Paint

Previously Painted Timber

  1. Old paint that shows signs of cracking, peeling or flaking should be completely removed with a dedicated paint stripper prior to application of Ronseal gloss paint
  2. Paintwork in sound condition should be lightly sanded first to provide a key
  3. Ensure that all traces of sanding dust have been removed after sanding
  4. For the best results, apply Ronseal's Super Flexible Primer and Undercoat before application of Ronseal exterior wood paint

OId Timber

  1. Any instances of wet rot can be treated with Ronseal Wet Rot Wood Hardener, and any existing woodworm can be eradicated with Ronseal Woodworm Killer
  2. Use a suitable wood filler to repair any damaged areas and replace any decayed wood with sound timber
  3. Then treat as 'New Timber' above

Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product performance and end result. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the tin at all times.

Do not apply at temperatures below 10℃ or in high humidity. Ensure good ventilation. Stir Ronseal exterior gloss paint thoroughly before and during use to achieve a consistent finish.

  1. Apply the first coat evenly with a synthetic brush, finishing in the direction of the wood grain
  2. Apply the second coat 4 hours after the first in normal weather conditions
  3. Treat all sides and edges (if exposed) and ensure the painted surface remains free from dust, dirt and contaminants until fully dry

For best results, use lighter colours in areas exposed to high levels of sunlight. The longevity of the finish will vary depending on the paint colour and the type and condition of the timber or existing paintwork. A South-facing position and the level of shade will also affect durability.


To maintain the finish if it becomes worn over time, a fresh coat of Ronseal 10 Year Weatherproof Wood Paint can be applied once annually, following the Preparation and Application instructions, paying special attention to the end grain.

Q. Can I use the Ronseal 10 year wood paint without the flexible primer and undercoat?

A. To get the 10 year guarantee, Ronseal say you must use the flexible primer and undercoat. Plus it will make the top coat more durable and it will always give you a nicer finish.

Needs care and preparation in order to achieve a good finish given the high viscosity of the paint by Alan Griffiths

This product seems to be more of a technical coating than a simple paint. It needs a good compatible undercoat and then 3 or more thin finishing coats to get a clean finish. However, it does respond well to sanding to remove any small inter-coat runs.

Goes on easily, cleans off easily by JT

You must use the undercoat. No shortcuts. Come back in 10yrs to see if it does what it says on the tin.

Good quality product by MAp

Like most quality weather paints these days it is a little like painting with treacle because of the thickness but goes on well and gives good coverage. Pale when first applied but darkens slightly after a few days to the colour I was expecting

As it's 10 year paint I can't really comment for another 9 years and 11 months, but so far it looks really good!

Extremely poor coverage by Micael Chalk

I live by sea and liked the idea of the 10yr bit but after seeing the result on the bottom panel of the door I went out and bought an Albany gloss that covered really well with one coat.

A note from us...

We will appreciate hearing from you with a view to learning what it was you didn't like about this product.

Works well by Rogerf

Read the tin and benefit from no primer wood painting; brushes clean with water and a promised long life. I wouldn't normally use it on top of regular paints but I do use it on its own or perhaps on a well scratched surface. The paint is not at all cheap but it is very convenient.
