You need to pressure wash your fence (with a propper jet washer, not a basic karcher), then fully dry (few days good weather), then repaint with a high quality stain, (Ronseal Trade or fence life plus). It peeled off because you painted a fence that wasn’t fully dry or clean.


If it needs to be removed then you can't paint over it can you?

I used this once, it lasted just over a year before it started to flake off in places, I then discovered that because its ducks back you cant paint back over it, this is a 30 meter fence so looks awful - never again.

I'm not sure why it flaked. I love this stuff and have never had a problem. I used this to cover a new workshop that I'd built in the garden. Gave it a top-up coat every couple of years and the workshop was still looking ace after 10 years. I've moved since then so can't comment on it's looks now. Dunno if it made a difference, but the wood I purchased to build was completely untreated.

I want to paint our fences but I’m actually quite nervous about picking a bad brand as it’s such a big job I don’t want to be regretting it after a year if it flakes or looks awesome
Great deal. The next closest price is 2 for £20 at Wickes. Don't forget 2.1% TCB!

I was going to use this on my fences as well, but now I'm unsure as well about it after reading that it 'flakes off' and can't be repainted over as somebody mentioned above.
if you have a good quality wood then use a stain rather than a paint, they will just fade rather than flake
product like this is good for hiding old wood though

Geez that's an awful lot of other to repaint a fence. It's a NO from me.
Would this be any good to cheaply water protect floor boards inside. I'm re-doing my bathroom (top to bottom) but there wont be tiles underneath the bath so was looking into a way to quickly/cheaply seal the floorboards from any general drips/leaks/slow water damage.

I know this ain't the best solution before I get flamed..just after a quick sealer...was looking at varnish before then saw this.

That's general rules of painting - you have to prepare properly - which includes removing flaking paint. If it's flaking from before, then it does sound like inadequate prep was carried out.
This is after two years of this Ducks back paint, ignore the damage we live in an area where the wind is very strong and damages it every year.

I painted it this time last year and it looked really good for about a month before it started pealing off at the bottom of each slat, and then over the year it gets worse to where it is now, I now have some one coat stuff to try.

These were cheap panels from Wickes.

I painted a new fence with Ducksback a few years ago. Had to rub down the panels first (loads of dust and weird chemicals left from the tanalising process), applied really well and it still looks fresh 3 years later.
Suspect those with peeling issues either had loose wood, previous paint/stain/oil on it or some other issue.
Mine still looks as good as the day I painted it (2 years ago)33737070-m2HXP.jpg

This video has some good info about painting and re-painting
The only thing that puts me off about a sprayer is the fact that the paint might seep through to my neighbour's side. Does this tend to happen a lot? Thank you.

I have recently painted some planters with this after heavy rain the water collected on top very similar to how rain collects on a highly waxed car, no horrible smell to this stuff either. im well impressed with the coverage and thick enough not to drip unlike their garden shades range, ( just wish they did the nice colours in ducks back)
This stuff is literally like water of a ducks back, because a) it's watery b) flakes off in next to no time.

Never again

Mine isn't at all watery unlike their garden colours which is really thin but is keeping its appearance very well now on its 3rd year since doing it .BUT its the most awful stuff to paint on The Ducks back is literally non drip, of course I cant comment on how long it will last.
Great deal, did my fence last summer and apart from the birds pooing all over it it looks good. Will buy some more to do the other side.
I've been using creocote from wickes on a new shed and it is far better than these waterbased products. Can see it protects well as the water beads well and just falls off the wood rather than absorbing into it. I bought 25 litres for £40 so works out same as this but should be far superior protection.

if its watery then try mixing it - its thick stuff
does flake with friction though
Rather buy from Wilko than Amazon so I don’t get conned into signing up to “ Prime “ AGAIN !

Had the grey on my shed for a few years back. Still going

Have a nosey at the bigger tins of ducks back as sometimes that works out better value for money
