Before you start
- Make sure the surface is clean and dry. Use a stiff broom to get rid of any ingrained dirt.
- If you have mould, algae or fungi, use a garden cleaner to get rid of them.
- Decayed wood should be strengthened with a wood hardener.
- If there is any paint, stain or varnish on the wood you will need to remove it. You can do this with a stripper or sanding the surface.
- Give the tin a good shake to mix the colour pigments.
- Dip the end grains into the preserver so it completely soaks into the wood.
- Use a brush to apply preserver to the rest of the wood.
- Wait 24 hours for the first coat to dry.
- Add a second coat, following the same process.
- If you need to carry out any repairs or gluing, wait until the second coat is totally dry.
To keep your wood in a good condition, apply a new coat every year.
- Remove as much excess product off your brush as you can.
- Clean it with a brush cleaner
You should never empty left over preserver into drains or watercourses. To find out how to properly dispose of your leftovers, contact your local council.
