What paint do I need to use on exterior wood?

When working on wood outside, you’re either going to want an exterior wood paint or an exterior wood stain. Here is when you’d choose one over the other:

Exterior Wood Paints

You always want exterior paint to hold its own against the elements. Typically, customers will opt for the opaque finish when working with doors, frames & sheds, as opposed to having a glossy wooden shed. If it’s small pieces of panelling, a full gloss could work as it has better defensive properties against rain.

Exterior Wood Stains/Varnishes

When you have a wood surface that is already finished to a colour you like and want to keep, you’ll need an exterior varnish or clear stain. Please be advised that using oil based products can cause a yellowing over time. 

What paint should I use if I’m painting my garden wall?

If you’re painting with a mixture of wood and concrete, you could find that Demidekk Ultimate might be worth a look. This product is flexible and can also be applied to properly primed concrete. 

Can I use gloss and satin paints outside?

Yes, as long as the paint has been formulated for use outdoors. You might have some leftover gloss you used inside and this can be applied to furniture and walls, but many interior paints like emulsions will not be formulated to withstand the elements. Almost all external gloss and satin paints are made to help prevent any tannins in the wood from causing discolouration. 

If you currently have exterior wood painted and can see some browning coming through, it’ll be from tannins. In cases like this, it is advisable to use some exterior primer before you start painting over.

Priming exterior furniture

Outdoor furniture can be a tricky thing to get right at the best of times when you’re painting. Any missed areas on furniture outside are going to show much faster than those indoors. Make sure that you get furniture paint from trusted brands like Rustoleum and Sadolin
