I would value your help once more please.
We have a wooden garden shed and fences.
We do not like the colours of the wood preservers, ie red cedar etc, so the
question is, can we use masonary paint what we use on the external walls of
the house and would this give better protection than say using external
gloss / matt paint ..... ?
For timber out of doors I would always recommend micropourous/moisture
vapour permable paint or stain, this basically allows your timber to breathe
and release any moisture contained within it but stops any new moisture from
gaining access. Its not the cheapest paint/stain but it is well worth it if
you want your timber to last!

I'd go along with the other persons post. Sikkens is probably about the best
preservative to use and has much better pigments than many others. You can
get it in a range of colours and I would imagine that you could get any
colour you wanted mixed. Personally, I wouldn't paint anything that was
outside the house!!
