Found 19th Aug 2013
Bought 9 litres of Dark Oak on the weekend for my fences and i must say it looks flippin marvellous. Going back for more. It went over my existing red fence paint in one coat. Offer was in 2 local stores, so it could be a national deal.

flipping cheap eh

Bought 2 of these 2 weeks ago [at this price] and it is very thin... it needs a lot of stirring before use. For the price it is ok but I am left wondering if the more expensive Ronseal versions still available in Wickes/B&Q are better value..?

It looks quite bright when you look at it in the tub and when you first apply it. but it does dry quite dark. As stated above though, you will need more than one coat to achieve the desired dark colour effect - I have done 2 coats on my new fence panels and am thinking about doing a third, so I disagree with the One Coat labelling.

I brought 2 tubs at this price a couple of months ago, very happy with it !!, yes you've got to stir it but thats the same will all large tubs as they all settle, I found the coverage to be excellent, so far I've painted 9 fence panels and a bench and still haven't started the 2nd tub . . . bargain . .

Excellent price, we have a large fence painted in this colour and the cheapest I had seen it elsewhere was £11 at Screwfix

I also disagree with the one coat claim. It's possibly one coat if you're repainting a fence in a similar colour, but on fresh wood I've found it's at least two coats, more often three. I've tried spraying it and using a brush and on various types of wood.

I have been buying these tubs from home base for a couple of years now.
Great value, I agree with the more than one coat quote above if you are painting over a different colour but to paint over the same its great.
I have painted a couple of sheds over 50 mtrs of fence, when you paint the sheds you can see the water running off.

Good quality paint..

If you read the tin it states you will need more than one coat on treated wood.

Hot from me. I've used this before, great stuff.

I've used it on untreated wood and it still needed two full coats and patches required a third going over.

No way! oO Everyone knows that Ronseal does exactly what it says on the tin!!

However, this does look more like a bucket than a tin...

I always wondered why just fence. Why can't you use this on a timber shed for instance?

This has been posted before.I bought mine a few months ago and they have always had stock since that time, at this price. Still a great deal, though.

Picked up my third tub yesterday, it's been a cost saver, although I'm a bit fed up of painting now. Splashes well mind you!

Thanks OP!
