How to protect the wood in your garden like a pro

Wooden structures are integral to our outdoor spaces, but they need regular maintenance to stay in good condition. Fortunately, Barrettine can help with that

When it comes to materials, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that’s as durable, versatile and easy to work with as wood. That’s why it’s used for so many of our outdoor structures, including fencing, decking, furniture and sheds. Of course, like anything exposed to the elements, wood can become weathered and worn over time. The good news is, with a little help from Barrettine’s expert products, you can strengthen and protect your outdoor features, so they stay looking their very best.

For more than 140 years, Barrettine has been producing oil-based treatments that provide effective and long-lasting care for all types of wood, so you can continue to get the most out of your garden. Indeed, the brand’s chemists are constantly using the latest technology to develop and test new formulas, creating unique products that are trusted by traders, professionals and DIY experts to achieve incredible results.

What’s more, as a family-run business that’s won awards for its excellent customer service, Barrettine will ensure your experience is seamless from start to finish.

Just what you need

A structure’s age, function and timber-type are all factors to consider when choosing a treatment. Generally, wood protectors, which are often used on pre-treated timbers, help to defend against the elements, while wood preservers guard the woodwork from insects and fungal decay.

Barrettine’s extensive range includes something for every wood type. These are the brand’s most popular products:

Garden and shed

Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment

This best-selling protective treatment is ideal to use on pre-treated rough, sawn or smooth timber. As a wood sealer, it’s made with water repellent and UV fade resistant resins, which create a transparent finish without disguising the timbers grain.

The treatment also contains a film, biocide, which helps to prevent the surface growth of mould and algae, while also reducing wood decay, swelling and twisting. Plus, it’s free from insecticides, so it’s insect-friendly once dry.

Nourish and Protect Wood Preserver

As an oil-based, low-odour preserver, this product protects wood from insects and fungi. It works by deeply penetrating the wood fibres, helping to provide long-lasting protection from decay, infestation and the elements.

This effective preserver is available to buy in eight different colours including Clear, Natural Brown, Holly Green and Black, so you’ll be able to find a shade to suit all your wooden structures.

Outdoor decking can be prone to becoming worn and weathered, but with Barrettine’s All-in-One Decking Oil, you can make sure yours stays in top condition. This nourishing treatment repels water, UV rays and prevents mould.
