I use those on my fence surprisingly they seem to last quite well for me, but although it says one coat I put 2. please feel free to recommend a better product.

I bought and applied some of their "5 year weather defence" Fence Life late last autumn. Already signs of wear/flaking after little more than 6 months.

Cuprinol 5l is £5 at Tesco at the moment usually £10.

Can confirm this stuff is rubbish.

Pretty much needs re-appling every year. 2 coats to get an even colour. Weird goopy but thin concistency which really likes to accumulate then drip, so you can walk away with it looking good, come back 5 mins later and theres runs all over the place.

When paints etc are cheap, they are cheap because they are rubbish.

You really do get what you pay for.

agree it's rubbish. comes off within a year. need at least two coats to look decent. I complained last year and they tried to blame my fence. which was new wood. but I explained it was rubbish on older fences too. like applying water so thin drips like mad.

What alternative do people recommend?

Try Johnstone's Trade Woodworks shed & fence treatment, it's so much thicker than Ronseal or Cuprinol which are like coloured water!
Go to their website to find a stockist - I bought some last year for £10 for 5 litres and well worth it considering the time it saves in the long run - would never now use anything else!

Agree with the Johnstones trade being superior.

They've got their 5L shed & fence on offer until Tuesday on their bonanza sale at £5 + vat nationwide. (The sale was meant to end Saturday but it has been extended)

I've just painted mine with a creosote substitute... Creocote.. Goes on easy, cheap and lasts ages...

Good to read these comments, we've just this week done all three gardens fences, our shed, and our pergola, using near enough a full 10ltr tub of this that we bought around FIVE YEARS ago lol! It was lovely quality, nice thickness, and lots of oil for protection (it needed some stirring mind you!), but perhaps their quality has gone downhill in those years? Johnstones is great quality, all their products are!

Also, talking of quality? Theres a paint on the market by "Valspar", this is, or at least was beautiful quality paint! It's all our house was painted in when i was growing up, as my Granddad worked in the factory that made it lol!

I painted my fence with this and had no problems with it

Three coats it took me using this stuff. I spent more using this than I would have done using decent fence paint. And the decent stuff lasts longer. Don't waste your money.

Used this late last summer and even now it's fading and coming off. I only did one coat so I'm going to apply another this summer, will hopefully last a lot longer than 8 months. Cheap though so can't complain too much.

Been to their website and followed links to local stockists. Also used google but unable to find it for £5 plus vat. Any links?

I can't find it anywhere near that price...maybe offer has ended?

Just what I've been looking for. Hopefully I'll find it but will hold of voting as it appears many cannot.

Do Johnsons make anything similar suitable for spray use? Ta

I used this last summer on a bare fence,it took two coats and the colour is solid,I plan to re coat once this summer .
At this price it's worth getting as long as Tudor Black is in the deal as it usually isn't in the cheap deals for some reason....

Maybe the normal fence stuff but colours range admittedly cost a lot more but last a few years, the Cuprinol ones I've used.
Home Bargains dark oak 9 litres for £5.99 same as last year.
