Frequently asked questions about shed paint

  1. What kind of paint do you use on a shed?

    It is important to use paint on your shed that is appropriate for garden use. Traditional paint for indoor use will be more prone to crack, flake or peel. Shed paint will be more flexible as it can move with the wood as it grows and contracts with changing temperature and humidity levels. Products such as Johnstones Shed & Fence Treatment offer protection from harmful UV rays and 3 years of colour retention. So it makes sense to choose a shed paint that has been formulated for outdoor use.

  2. Should I paint the inside of my shed?

    Painting the inside of your shed a white or light colour will make it easier to find things inside due to the contrast. It’s a great option if you have limited or no light inside your shed. It will also help brighten your shed and seal the wood.

  3. How do you paint an old wooden shed?

    It is important to clean an old wooden shed if you plan on painting it. Use a fungicidal wash like Mangers or Sandex to remove any algae, fungi, lichen or moss. Make sure to wipe any debris, mud, mould and spider webs too. The goal here is to ensure that the old wooden shed is as clean as possible, with all cracks in the wood cleaned.

    After the prep, you can go ahead and apply the first layer of paint. For the best results, paint in dry conditions when the temperature is above 5°C. Apply the paint using a 9” roller and spread along the grain of the wood. Make sure that the first layer of paint is dry before applying a second. Do not exceed three layers of paint to avoid peeling.

  4. How do you paint the outside of a shed?

    Once cleaned with a fungicidal wash such as Mangers or Sandtex, apply an oil-based primer to the shed. Not only will this help the paint spread smoothly, but it will also provide a layer of protection against the weather. After the prep, you can go ahead and apply the first layer of paint.
