• Sheds and Fences
    • Why do I need to protect my fence or shed?
      • Fences and sheds are made of wood. If you don't protect wood it'll turn grey in the sun or rot in the rain. At best it won't look good. At worse, it'll collapse. You can choose two different kinds of Fence Life to protect it. One Coat gets the job done fast. 5 Year Weather Defence needs two coats but will last year after year, after year.

    • How does the Precision Finish Power Sprayer work?
      • Our new Power Sprayer paints a fence panel in just 2 minutes. What's different is the power settings. You can control how it sprays. It has an accuracy setting so you can do the fiddly parts of your fence, with a small spray pattern. A control setting, that has a wider spray pattern, ideal for filling in gaps. Setting 3 is made for speed. Covering large areas, quick.

    • Can I use a brush to apply Sprayable Fence Life?
      • You don't have to use a sprayer to apply our Sprayable One Coat Fence Life, you can still use a brush. To get the job done as quickly as possible, we'd recommend using a wide brush. Get loads of Fence Life on your brush and put a thick coat on, be careful not to spread it too far. If your wood is very weathered, you may need to put another coat on, just make sure to leave about 4 hours between coats.

    • Can I use a jet wash to remove paint from my fence?
      • We wouldn't recommend using a jet wash to remove paint from your fence. The wood needs to be clean and dry, or the new paint won't stick properly. Use a stiff brush to get rid of any dirt. 

    • Can I use the non-sprayable Fence Life in a sprayer?
      • You can't use our standard Fence Life in a sprayer. If you do, you might end up damaging the sprayer by clogging it up. If you want to use your sprayer, pick up a tub of our Sprayable Fence Life or Fence Life Plus+

      • There is no best brush size, but get the job done as quickly as possible, we'd recommend using a wide brush, about 4".

    • How do I clean the Fence Sprayer?
      • To empty the sprayer, push the pump handle all the way down and lift the pressure release valve until no ‘hissing’ can be heard. Once the pressure has escaped, unscrew the pump unit and tip any liquid back into its tub. (Alternatively, spray the excess liquid back into its tub before releasing pressure). Remove as much product as possible before cleaning, some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings. Don’t empty into drains or watercourses. It’s important that the sprayer is cleaned thoroughly after use. Don’t leave the sprayer filled with product when not in use or overnight. Rinse out the sprayer several times with clean water, then refill with clean water. Re-pressurise and then spray through the nozzle until the water runs clear, it’s best to do this on the Speed setting. Unscrew the wand handle from the trigger and clean the filter with clean water. Remove the nozzle and white filter and clean with warm, soapy water and an old toothbrush. Make sure you don’t use a sharp object as this will damage the nozzle and ruin the spray pattern. Put the nozzle back together and take care to do this in the correct order.
