Paint System

We want you to enjoy your purchase for many years to come, so all our sheds, summerhouses and log cabins are treated with a preservative before they leave the factory. This not only looks great but means that your building is protected against the elements. We use a high quality, water-based product making it quick-drying, low odour and safe to use around pets and plants. We highly recommend that you treat your building each year to make sure that it continues to be protected.


6 Stage, 3 Coat Paint System

But if you want something really special, why not upgrade to a painted building?  We offer a 6 stage, 3 coat paint process that not only protects but looks fabulous for years to come.

Teknos are one of Europe’s leading suppliers of specialist industrial and decorative coatings, their paints offer a huge range of high quality finishes with a strong focus on being environmentally safe. Choose from our standard paint range or for a small extra charge, we can RAL match to any colour of your choice.

Each individual piece of timber is sprayed, firstly with a sealant and primer, it’s then sanded to create a key for the first exterior coat. The coated planks or logs are air dried and then sanded again before a final factory coat is applied. Our boards are sprayed three times in our state-of-the-art temperature controlled, dust extracted spray booth which provides a safe, consistent environment for our fully trained staff to complete a thorough job. They are then coated with an end-grain sealer and finally touched up on site. This thorough and lengthy application process creates a long-lasting seal and a smooth, smart aesthetic look.

 Sectional sheds and summerhouses painted with our Teknos range are also fitted with a breathable membrane between the studwork and the tongue and groove cladding, providing an additional waterproof layer.

Translucent Finish

Our translucent finish has the same 6-stage process but shows the natural grain through, maintaining a timber effect that’s hard wearing and beautiful. We try hard to ensure the colours shown are as accurate a representation of the paint as possible, but differences on screen and print can affect the colour you see. We can always provide a swatch of the colour on wood.
