Using Barn Paint Effectively
Barn paint, a very popular product for when you are looking to paint most external wooden structures: sheds, fences and barns of course. Where you've invested in a really nice looking wood but you still want to put a color on it, the barn paint is a little bit translucent so you can still see the grain of the wood showing through. It's not a completely solid color. Some of them, it's more of a bit of a stain as well. The barn paint, being a water-based acrylic, is UV stable. It doesn't lose its color in sunlight. It's also flexible as well. It's not a paint that's going to crack. Going on to bare wood, yeah, do thin the first coat just to help it get in there and then apply your second coat. Neat but for most of the woods used to construct a barn, it's fairly rough-sawn timber anyway. It tends not to be a plain wood. Which means you probably don't need to thin the first coat.
Applying Barn Paint
It will last many years. Very popular choice. Low odor, low smell etc. Nice and easy to apply as well, brush or roller or, of course, you can spray it on. Available now, a wide choice of colors but also it can be produced what color of your choice as well. Just call us for more details on how we go about doing that, but there is a small additional fee for producing that per batch. Where you do require a product that is more of a solid color, then you can always look to the Bedec Multi-Surface Paint. Available in a gloss, semi-gloss, and matte finishes, barn paint allows you to create the effect that you're looking for on your barn or extension.
You can, of course, apply barn paint over an object that's already been painted regardless of what type of paint it was. The barn paint, being a water-based product, doesn't cause any reactions between itself and the previous paint coating. Although preparation for surface is required still. You will still need to clean, abrade, and degrease any existing paint coat before this is applied. 1 liter covers around between 10 to 13 square meters per liter per coat. We do recommend 2 coats for any external job. Bedec Barn Paint is available in 20 litres.
