Hi Folks. Just about to buy a Keter outdoor shed and want to paint it once built. I've contacted them and they've advised to paint it with a water based acrylic paint for exterior use.

As a complete novice I don't want to get this wrong since shed is >£1000. Can someone recommend what paint I should be using for this job?

Thanks

Hi,

What is it made of? The specific plastic I mean.
You might want to prime with a good quality primer that adheres to the material (e.g. zinser 123) before using an exterior paint.

Ah that's quite straightforward then. You could still choose to use an acrylic primer, but those instructions make it sound like you can paint straight on.

Bedec MSP one tin of paint does it all, I have tried the satin which stick well but it does not have great opacity, there again the company spec sheet says "On sealed surfaces apply two to three coats, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly. Do not over spread", so 3 coats later the opacity will be fine. AFAIK there is gloss too but the choice of colours is limited.

If it helps a little.
