One of the best paints

If you think it’s a one coat and done think again, to achieve the colour on the tin follow instructions minimum 2-3 coats, I find untreated or older wood can easily take 4/5 coats you know when you’ve done your final coat and that’s when it dries with a slight sheen that’s when you’ve got a good ducks back finish.
Also it’s not like house paint the colour will always be slightly different in the tin.
I still top it up once a year as yes it lasts up to 5 years but I find it just tops it up and keeps it looking fresher

I’ve used this for many years to protect my garden fence and shed. In my opinion is it far superior than the other major competitor products.
As for the colour I’ve always been happy with the end result and matches the colour on the label. So don’t be alarmed if you open the tin and it doesn’t look the same. The colour always changes once it’s absorbed into the wood and dry.

Although more expensive than similar products it is well worth it - goes on well and stays looking good - some of our fencing has had this on for 3 years and still looks like we did it yesterday !
Ducksback is a clever comparison

I've only managed one coat so far but it looks good as it is and covered well. It has dulled down a bit which is good as it was a bit bright, especially in the tin but it's a good, rich colour. I am obviously not able to judge it's 5-year claim yet but then I've only put one coat on and they recommend at least 2 on the tin. So far, so good.
Misled by the colour shown on the Tin

Bought one for my fence thinking that the colour is more of brownish as shown on the Tin. But it turned out to be orangegy in colour when you opened it. Brought it back to B&Q and they said the colour is about right for rich cedar. They wouldn't do a refund as the tin was already opened and couldn't be resold.
How would you know what colour it would be without opening it and the colour is not the colour shown on the tin ? B&Q advised to contact Cuprinol directly which I did and awaiting their final response (already had a couple of email exchanges with them).
Be careful when you buy any of these as the colour shown on the tin does not reflect the actual colour of the paint.
