Are you planning on treating. painting or staining the exterior panels of your Cabin or Shed?

Here is a quick and easy way of working out the total coverage of your Cabin or Shed. (Please bare in mind that this is an approximate, due to the doors and any windows you may have.)

*This is just an example*

  • Front side of Cabin / Shed : 8m x 2m = 16 Square Meters
  • Back side of Cabin / Shed : 8m x 2m = 16 Square Meters
  • Left side of Cabin / Shed : 10m x 2m = 20 Square Meters
  • Right side of Cabin / Shed : 10m x 2m = 20 Square Meters

Then simply add these together 16+16+20+20 = 72 Square Meters

Once you have worked out the total area of your Cabin / Shed you can then use the Coverage Calculator on our product pages to work out an approximate amount of product required. If you prefer to work in 'Feet' then we have a function on our Coverage Calculator to change the equation to 'Feet'.
