    Hi,

    I am buying a tiger shed which is not pressure treated but which will have an orange temporary treatment. I want to get rid of this and paint it grey using a quality treatment like Sadolin Superdec - can anyone advise how many litres I am likely to need for an 8 x 6 shed? It is expensive stuff!

    I work on the basis the manufacturer's stated coverage is about one third too optimistic

    Plus it usually leaves some spare for maintenance/touching up.

    I don't think that stuff is a timber 'treatment', it's just a paint to make it look nice?

    For the benefit of anyone else reading this thread. 5 litres was more than enough to do 3 coats all round. I probably have enough left to do another coat.

    As far as I understand Sadolin Superdec (when given 3 coats) will provide 10 years protection.
