PREPARATION – NEW DECKING
Most new decking is slightly waterproof, and this protection could stop the oil from soaking in properly. To oil new decking, you need to first clean off the waterproof protection. Do this with our Decking Cleaner.
PREPARATION – WEATHERED DECKING
Clean the decking first with our Decking Cleaner to restore it to its original colour. This will remove all dirt and green staining caused by mould and algae; greatly improving the results of the Decking Oil.
PREPARATION – PREVIOULSY STAINED DECKING
Remove any loose, flaking or peeling old finishes from previously coated surfaces. Our Decking Cleaner and a good scrub should achieve this, but you may need to use a Paint Stripper on some painted surfaces.
Surfaces must be clean and dry. Shake or stir thoroughly. Apply liberally with a suitable brush, moving in the direction of the grain. Be sure to cover all the wood, including any edges, for maximum protection. Leave for 5 minutes for the oil to penetrate into the wood and then wipe off any excess with a clean brush or lint free cloth.
The item will be showerproof in two hours, depending on temperature and humidity conditions. Allow four hours drying time between coats and apply a second coat in the same way as the first.
Simply remove as much product from your brush as possible and then clean in warm soapy water.
To conserve the performance and look of the oiled finish, you should sweep decked areas with a stiff broom on a regular basis to remove any loose dirt, leaves or any other contaminants which can degrade the decking finish or timber over time.
Depending on how much traffic the decking is subjected to, and how much weathering it receives, the decking should be inspected on a regular basis and be retreated with a maintenance coat of the Decking Oil once you can see it starting to look a little worn and tired or when water is no longer being repelled. Simply clean the area to be maintained and apply a thin coat of oil in that area.
