After a few winters, you then discover that the panels have gone beyond repair and you have to start all over again. Just like your shed, you “MUST” keep treating any timber structure with care and attention. Apply treatment or use another shed paint that is colourful and lasts the test of time: Here are some of the best shed paints that work just as well on wooden garages!

  1. Prevent any dirt build-up by sweeping and cleaning your wooden garage once a month or as many times as you see necessary.
  2. Use a premium stain, oil or paint to keep damp out and prolong the life of your timber and wooden panels
  3. Visually check the roof for leaks and clean off any moss or dirt buildup as this can cause leaks if left unchecked
  4. Check for rising damp! Especially if your wooden garage is new, this is a typical problem after installation because of concrete bases not having the correct membrane instaled at ground level!

Wooden Garage: FAQ’S

How long will my wooden garage last?

A wooden garage will last 20/30 years if kept in tip-top shape. Keep it clean, remove any debris off the roof and treat it once a year without fail! Always check for rising damp and leaks, if you discover any issue with rising damp or leaking seek an expert or rectify yourself.

Do I need planning permission for a wooden garage?

Planning permission is not (generally) not required for your wooden garage, but double-check with your local planning department if in doubt. There are a few rules for building a wooden garage without planning permission. It must not be higher than 2.5m, not a livable space and set back from the boundary of your property.

Will my wooden garage be treated already?

Yes, all wooden garages have a primary stain coating, which is not sufficient enough for winters in the UK. We always advise our readers to treat the structure yourself as think will prolong the life of your structure. A factory level dip in a staining vat is not enough to protect your timber structure against the elements!
