What should you keep in mind when choosing exterior paint for your garden building? Designers advise that there are numerous elements to consider before committing to a new colour. After all, exterior paint is a longer-term investment than interior paint, and we all know how important it is for our garden buildings to compliment the rest of the garden. If you want to paint your home in the near future, you won’t want to skip reading the following suggestions to ensure a smooth procedure.

To protect your cabin, the Timber Eco Shield is a waterproofing wood stain, giving your garden building a traditional matt wood stain finish in a range of natural colours. The nanotechnology used results in a highly water repellent finish with a mould inhibitor and a fade resistant colour, which will keep the timber looking new for many years. It is especially recommended for use on pressure treated timbers. The eco shield is easy to apply and dries very quickly. Also, no primer or base coat is required.

At Dunster House we supply a range of wood stain and protect paints that would accentuate your garden! Coverage: 1 Litre will cover approximately 10-12m².
