Therefore, the following applies: Without painting, nothing works in the interior of the garden house either.

What to do if it has not yet been deleted?

Our advice: do this as soon as possible. Proceed as follows:

  • Clear the entire house and check the corners and walls thoroughly. Are there any mold stains?
  • Then you should also take a look at the roof, sometimes water seeps in here after just a few years. Seal the roof if necessary.
  • If water collects in the interior, it may also be necessary to seal the floor slab against moisture rising from the ground.

How is it deleted?

If the house is rebuilt, a first protective coat should be applied before assembly. Use breathable and moisture-regulating glazes for the interior. (€ 59.87 at Amazon *)

  • Before the renovation coat, remove old layers of paint pore-deep with emery paper.
  • First paint the walls, then the ceiling and finally the floor.
  • Depending on the surface and use of the arbor, conventional wall paints or glazes with a wood tone can be used, which give the garden shed (€ 7.70 on Amazon *) a rustic look.


Do you like to stay in the arbor even in the cold season? Then it is worth thinking about suitable insulation measures before repainting the interior.
