Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver

From: £11.01 Select options

Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver protects against wood destroying wet rot,  wood boring insects and contains superb quality water repellent resins. With a low odour, this deep penetrating oil/spirit wood preservative is ideal for use on treated and untreated wood and gives a semi-transparent finish allowing the natural wood texture to show through. Suitable for rough, sawn or smooth timber,  Barrettine Wood Preserver does not require over sealing for wood protection so can stand alone.  It can also however, be used as a preservative base for overcoating with protective treatments, wood oils and oil based paints/varnishes, for aesthetic purposes (allow for weathering period). If using as a stand alone product, seven colour shades are available.

Applying Barrettine Premier Wood Preserver

Use outdoors to preserve wooden fences, gates, sheds and for most external wood care tasks including window frames, external doors and door frames (internal & external sections).  The Barrettine clear wood preserver can also be used on structural timbers in unoccupied areas such as floor joists. This wood preserver is also suitable for use on animal housing including chicken coops, stables and kennels **keep animals away until the surface is completely dry**

While Barrettine premier wood preserver is available in seven UV fade resistant colours, it can also be overcoated for aesthetic purposes or for additional protection, with suitable paints and wood oils. NOTE: Before overcoating, allow the wood to fully ‘weather’ after applying the preserver. This is especially important for water based paints as  the wax contained in the preserver will repel the water and prevent adherence of the paint. The ‘weathering’ process can take several months.


  • Wood must be dry, and dirt free. Remove previous coatings such as paint or varnish and clean with a biocidal wash
  • Apply in dry weather conditions by brush, roller or spray (wood can also be dipped)
  • 2 to 3 coats are recommended. Allow 12 to 14 hours between coats, depending upon weather conditions

The sprayer must be thoroughly cleaned after application with white spirit and then oiled to protect the tip and moving parts (as per manufacturer’s instructions). This product cannot be sprayed with a traditional pump action garden sprayer.

Recommend using a biocidal wash such as Barrettine Knockout Mould and Mildew prior to treatment.
The final colour finish can vary considerably due to the age, type & condition of the timber being treated. We always recommend carrying out a test area first in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the final dried colour.

    After quite a bit of research I decided on Barrentine wood preserver and wasn’t disappointed, one large tin was just enough to do the inside of a new 8×9 pent shed.

  4. mark.d.clark (verified owner)

    Excellent product, easy to apply and provided a good coverage. I used the clear on a log cabin and I am very happy to recommend this wood preserver. I also contacted Palatine Paints for advice and found then very friendly and helpful.

    I ordered Barrettine wood protective treatment as needed to finish my large shed.
    I had already done porch, summerhouse and small shed.
    I was told it may be a long wait but this I was prepared to do. I was surprised to receive it after a few days.
    It went on very well, nice to use and very pleased with the colour red cedar.
