Using Barn Paint Effectively

Barn paint is a very popular product, thanks to the versatility of the paint. Barn Paint is great for any outside structure, particularly those made from wood like, sheds, fences and of course barns. The range of barn paint colours available, makes this one of the most useful paints in the industry. No matter your style or colour preferences, there is a colour for you.

Protecting your wooden structures is essential, which is why barn paint is a water based acrylic paint, making it flexible (and less likely to crack), and UV stable for a longer finish, even in strong sunlight.

If you have a wooden structure that you would like to keep as natural as possible, but still protected, you can still use barn paints. There are a number of paints available that are slightly translucent, meaning you can still see the wood grain once the paint has dried. Our team will be able to advise you further on this, simply give them a call on; 01462 421 333.

Applying Barn Paint

Applying barn paint couldn’t be simpler. The low odour element of the paint makes it ever more of a popular choice. The paint is long lasting, so wont need reapplying as much as other outdoor paints.

Applying barn paint can be done with either a brush or a roller. Some variety are available in an easy-to-use spray can too. 1 litre of barn paint, on average, will cover between 10-13sq meters. We recommend applying two coats to any outdoor structure for a longer lasting finish.

You should first prepare the surface by cleaning, abrading and degreasing the wood or previous paint. Barn paint can be applied over the top of another paint coat that has been sanded down. Thanks to the paint being water based, it doesn’t cause a reaction with any other paint types.
