How to Prepare & Clean


Sheds are prone to weathering due to their constant exposure to the elements. To keep that beautiful finish all year round make sure you prepare and clean any untreated wood surfaces.

  • Bare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver to prevent rot and decay.
  • Surfaces should be dry and free from dirt. Remove any algae, lichen, fungi or moss using an appropriate fungicidal wash.
  • Wood previously stained, painted or varnished should be stripped back to bare wood.
  • After use remove paint from the brush with a cloth and then wash with water.

How to Protect & Revive


Make your shed the focal point of your beautiful garden by protecting and reviving it with Cuprinol.

  • Apply only in dry conditions, above 5°C and when bad weather is not forecast.
  • Try a test area first to ensure adequate adhesion.
  • If using more than one can it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container.
  • If you want to add colour to your garden we would recommend using Cuprinol Garden Shades. This gives a beautiful, long lasting colour and protection to all garden wood.
