Hello and thank you for your question. Our Barn and Fence Paint is available in Barn White and Barn Red, it is not a tintable paint and therefore, there is not room in the gallon for colorant to be added. If you would prefer a tintable coating, we would recommend our Solid Color House and Fence Wood Stain that is tintable, allows computer color matching and comes in over 1600 custom colors to match up to the Behr Color Solution Center in your local Home Depot store. Thank you for the inquiry!

Will this product work on heavily oxidized and aged fencing. The surface is very grayed, rough texted, and very dry, but is structurally sound, with no rot or mold. What type of prep work is necisary for a good bond? Maybe pressure wash first?

Yes, My shed was in very poor shape and the outdoor barn and fence paint coated well. We didn't power wash first but I wish we wouldn't have sanded some splintered sections before painting.

Hello and thank you for your question. Our Behr Barn & Fence Paint will work on old wood fencing. The wood needs to be properly prepared: Test the wood by placing duct tape on the surface and pulling off quickly. If any fibers or debris come off with the tape then the surface isn't ready. Clean the surface with Behr Premium No 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner, rinse and allow to dry. Be sure to follow all back label instructions and best of luck on your project.

Hello and thank you for your question. We suggest applying the paint with a nylon/polyester brush on smooth brushes, and only using a high quality airless sprayer or a 3/4" long nap roller for rough-swan or textured wood. If you are working on this type of surface, use an airless sprayer with a .015" tip at the packaged consistency. If absolutely required, you can thin the paint with no more than 1/2 pint of water per gallon, but we do not recommend it. Be sure to follow all proper preparation as well as application steps, and make sure to follow all back label instructions. Best of luck on your project.

Hello, and thank you for your question. We suggest that you do not use BEHR® Barn & Fence Paint for your door since this product is designed for wood surfaces. Instead, we suggest you do the following: Step 1: If it already has a coating, sand the paint down to substrate (or as best as you can), then clean. Step 2: Prime with a product such as Kilz L2111. Step 3: Paint with BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Exterior or BEHR MARQUEE® Exterior (designed for multiple surface types). Hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

Dear Brad,

Thanks for your interest in our Behr Barn & Fence Paint. Our Barn & Fence Paint is not formulated with a water resistant finish, however we would recommend our Exterior Wood Stains formulated with that performance feature instead. Please consider products such as, Behr Premium Solid Color Weatherproofing All-In-One Wood Stain & Sealer or Behr Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain.

Hope this helps, and best of luck on your project!

Thank you for your interest in our Behr Barn & Fence Paint.

Hi Kudos1004,

Thank you for your interest in our Behr Barn& Fence Paint. This product can be applied over a previously painted surface. Sand all glossy surfaces and apply directly over the clean dry surface. If the previous latex coating has started to peel or crack, use a product such as Behr Premium No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove the old coating. Follow with a product such as Behr No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner and allow to dry completely before applying your final coat. Please follow all label instruction for proper preparation and application. Please follow all manufacturers instruction regarding your power washer as strength and intensities may vary depending on model. Good luck with your project!
