    I need to prepand paint the external wooden cladding on a mock tudor house
    and am considering the following two products:

    Bedec barn paint

    Wood tec barn jacket

    Reviews on both seem to be good but was wondering if anyone on here has used either and how they rate them in terms of protection, durability and coverage?

    Cheers
    Rob

    I've used Bedec barn paint, though not the standard white or black stuff. (Eucalyptus) It sprayed on easily and is easy to clean up (being water based) 5 years on, still looks good only the knots are showing through - but not in the usual resinous way. More like the aluminium based paint that went on prior to the bedec. Plus being blue, it shows up easily. Are your timbers rough sawn? Get in touch with Bedec to find what they recommend for knot treatment and how long you should wait if painting tanalised timber. I can also buy Beded from at least 3 different places locally.

    I can't comment on Wood Tec, no experience with it
