How to paint outdoor shed or log cabin

 Moose Färg , the ideal paint to paint outdoor shed and protecting your log cabin.

Good and regular maintenance is required to enjoy your garden shed as long as possible. UV rays, temperature fluctuations, rain and wind can really harass a wooden shed. This causes the wood cells at the surface to die down, which accelerates the ageing of the wood. Because the woods own oil disappears, the wood gradually gets stiffer. This increases the risk of cracking and even breaking. Therefore, many people choose to paint their garden shed with Moose Färg paint.

How to paint your outdoor shed with Moose Färg

The walls of an outdoor shed are often made of spruce or pine , whether or not impregnated or wolmanised. These have to be degreased with Moose Linsåpa natural linseed oil soap before painting. New wood has to be sanded with coarse grained sandpaper.

An existing coating, which is still in a healthy condition has no cracks and is not flaking. It is of great importance that the substrate underneath does not flake either. So, the substrate has to be checked thoroughly, and on places where it is flaking, all loose paint has to be removed completely. Use coarse grained sandpaper to make the old paint on your garden shed free of sheen. Sand in the direction of the wood fiber and remove the dust afterwards with soapy water. Allow the wood to dry and then roughen it slightly again, so that the protection system will adhere perfectly afterwards.
