Really Good Product
22 Apr 2014
By chochichek

"I hate the adverts but this product really did meet up to all expectations. Terrific value from Screwfix and we did the job over Easter. Very pleased with the outcome. Ordered it online and collected from High Wycombe store where the staff were really jovial and helpful despite working over Easter. Nice one!!"

This paint is just the job!!!!

By GardenQueen

"I brought this paint on special offer - 2 9ltrs for £18! It is brilliant stuff! Easy to put on and goes a long way. No horrible fumes, and the colour is rich. Have always used the smelly, watery stain before, but I am converted."

"Brought this at a good price for quantity from Screwfix after a little research & reading ALL the reviews. Ordered on-line collected within same day. Excellent service. Thank you Screwfix!!
Yes it does go on a shade of orange but dries to a brownish colour. It is the second time we / I have used this and the colour match is good after 2 years. It is water resistant in one day. Did get some overspray and I was using a 50mm paintbrush, took ages, but got best result. It is 'wet' and loose, and does need a stir occasionally as seems to 'skin' easily but SWMBO is pleased - what more could I ask?

"to be fair my wife volunteered to coat the fence. if you can get a thumbs up from her it must be a good product. Feedback, easy to use with a brush, good even coverage and an attractive shade (medium oak).
without wishing to rehash the cheesy adverts, it does do what it says!
getting two tubs at promotion price was the icing on the cake.

Does what it says on the tub
14 Jun 2013
By JTN01
, Barnet, Herts
"Medium Oak goes on light orange but dries slightly darker. Still a light oak colour when dry but we like it for the fence, raised bed boards and half rounds on the raised ponds.
Goes on very easily with brush and covered the dark oak from two years ago without a 2nd coat. You can spray it for inaccessible areas (behind netting etc.) but I don't suppose it is designed for this.
Really covers wood that looks old, dry and ready to crumble away and brings it back to life. You might get two years out of it but painting once every year is best for conditioning the wood and appearance.
Brushes and pots wash up very well and easily and the only con is removing it from old white plastic garden chairs when dry (spray went everywhere when using a gimmick lemonade bottle sprayer). Probably would have come off if I had wiped it straight away but I am now considering painting these old chairs entirely in medium oak.

"On opening the tub the product appears to be a bright orange colour - but don't worry it doesn't dry that way. Ronseal describe it as "Medium Oak" a fairly meaningless description to most people including myself. A more realistic description is "Mid Tan" or even "Chestnut". Before using stir the product well, and stir occasionally during use - a lot of the good stuff sinks to the bottom of the tub! I used a Harris 4" block brush to apply it and Ronseal are quite right when they say only one coat is needed. It's easy to apply (but beware of drips and splashes) and I left the fences panels to dry overnight. Rain just forms droplets on treated wood and runs off. An excellent product which I would have no hesitation in using again."

"First time I had purchased this product, and I have to say I am very pleased.
Very easy to apply with a brush, it soaks in and covers well.
The rain beads and runs off so I know it is doing it's job!
Excellent value for money and would recommend.

Does what it says
25 Jun 2013
By K9fencer

"It is a water based colouring agent and cannot be compared to the solvent based products. This product sits on the surface whereas the solvent based product soak into the wood to protect. If you want to improve the look of your fences it certainly does that but I'm not sure how much protection it gives and for how long.
I used it on some very grey fence wood that had been treated years ago with creosote, it certainly rejuvenated the fence and made it look really fresh and revived and I'm delighted with the result. The medium Oak colour at first appears very orange but dried to a nice medium brown (just what I wanted) however I suspect if you are painting yellow or untreated wood it could finish more orange.
I feel that it is not really "One Coat" but it dries very quickly so on a warm day I could give it extra coats in the same session rather than having to do it again another day.
It is a very thin watery product and splashes places that you wouldn't expect so if your fence is near a patio or furniture you'll need a dust sheet the size of Wembley Stadium!"

"I'm using this on planter boxes made out of softwood decking and it's coming out a rather orange for 'medium oak' (the photo is just about spot on for the colour) so I'm hoping it will weather in because right now it looks cheap and nasty.
Otherwise works fines. One coat covers with no effort and it dries quickly."

"This product has been applied over an aged original dark green colour. Despite applying 3 coats, the original colour still grins through. I bought a mixer paddle to go in an electric drill to make sure that the paint was thoroughly mixed. The paint was heavily applied on all of the 3 coats. I've found this product to be a complete waste of time and money. "Does what it says on the tin". I don't think so."

not what it says on the tin
2 Dec 2012
By notveryimpressed
, torbay
"I bought this 'medium oak' fence paint having seen the brochures and a sample of painted wood in a diy store. . The contents of the tin in no way resemble what is illustrated on the tin or the colour of the store sample. It turned out bright orange, not brown. Total waste of money, unless you are not fussy what colour your fence looks."
