How to use Ronseal Shed and Fence Preserver
Before you start
Make sure the surface you’re protecting is clean, dry and free from paint, varnish or stain. Use a stiff brush to remove ingrained dirt. If you notice any mould, fungi or algae, use a garden cleaner to get rid of it.
If there is paint, varnish and stain on your wood, you will need to strip it or sand it away.
Decayed wood should be replaced with healthy timber. Replace at least 45cm past the rotted area to get the best results.
Give the tin a good shake so you get a consistent colour.
For the end grains of your fence, dip them into the preserver so the wood is completely soaked.
For the main sections of your fence panels, dip a brush and apply the stain.
Wait 24 hours for the first coat to dry. You will need three coats for the best protection. Leave 24 hours between each coat.
Avoid contact with bitumen, bitumen felt or mastics and plastics.
Low temperature and increased humidity will increase drying time.
The wood will now be protected against rot, decay and woodworm.
You can easily maintain your wood by applying another coat every year.
Scrape as much preserver off your brush as you can.
Clean the brush with a paint brush cleaner.
Don’t empty leftover preserver into drains or watercourses. Contact your local authority for more information on how to dispose of unused paint.
