Cedar shed before and after Owatrol by Karen Park

Cedar shed renovation

Renovating an old shed can be a lot easier and a cheaper than buying and building a new one. And to prove it, one of our lovely customers recently sent in some pictures of them having used Owatrol products to restore their cedar shed.

As you can see they worked a treat and the shed looks almost as good as new – not bad considering it’s age!

Cedar shed before and after Owatrol by Karen Park

Here is what she had to say about it:

Cedar shed renovation. My 15 year old cedar shed had been left to weather naturally but unfortunately had not achieved an even weathered grey colour and was extremely dirty. I first cleaned it using Net-Trol, which instantly transformed it. I was totally amazed at the transformation by just using this product.

After using Net-Trol, I then gave it two coats of Aquadecks in colour honey to prevent the wood fading again. My shed now like it was when it was new 15 years ago!

Products used


Net-Trol 1L packagingNet-Trol is a powerful wood cleaner and brightener which restores greyed and weathered wood back to its natural colour – without damaging the wood’s fibres. It easily removes surface and ground-in dirt to leave the wood looking fresh and new again.

Net-Trol is fast-acting and can restore the colour of your wood in as little as 15 minutes. All without sanding!

It is also is biodegradable and does not contain solvents or bleach, making is safe to use in multiple environments.


Aquadecks 5L packagingAquadecks is a highly saturating water-based wood finish that leaves a long-lasting, rich, matt finish suitable for use on all woods, including exotic hardwoods. For easy application, Aquadecks is ready to use, dries quickly and has a low odour.

Aquadecks stabilises the wood from within to protect it from cracking, warping and other damage caused by harmful UV rays and moisture. As Aquadecks place is in the wood and not on it, it will not peel or flake.

This also means maintenance is easy as no sanding or stripping is required.

  1. Good afternoon, l have nice 8’ x 6’ pent roof garden shed, which is now 48 yrs old. I has been an excellent but needs a little special attention. It has been treated about every 10 years with Cuprinol, red cedar garden wood preserver and could now do with a little extra care and attention
    I would appreciate your advice on pre cleaning and follow up treatment
    Many thanks, Tony Bray, Cheltenham, Gloucs
