Our barn and stables are painted with a dark black paint of some description. It is not a stain, nor is it creosote…..any ideas what this stuff is exactly?

Thanks

Umm, some sort of black paint?
Sorry.
Could it be bitumen based?

Was about to add I think it might be bitumen based, so yes could well be.

Have you had a chat with a local agricutural merchants? They may stock stuff that's often used by the local farmers or at least be able to suggest what's used.
