Economic benefits of using Linseed oil paint

Although Linseed oil paint is more expensive by the litre than Acrylic paint, it's coverage is at least 30% more and it lasts for well over 15 years, so in the long-run Linseed oil paint is far more economical. See the Table below for a comparison of different types of paints applied to external timber, showing that Linseed oil paint is the best and least expensive option. Plus when the Linseed oil paint does fade, after around 15 years, a quick coat of linseed oil over the top of it will restore it back to new!
