Last week we gave you the Top Tips for Sprucing up your decking, today we show you how to prep your deck to get an even better, long lasting look for your wood this Summer.
Bad weather damages the wood which will need to be restored each year after a tough Winter. Now is the perfect time to get a fresh wood look.
We stock dozens of decking products in your local Expert Hardware. One of our favourites is Rustins Textured Decking Oil.
Here’s how to prep before application
- Clean the bare wood of your decking and make sure it is smooth, dry and free of dust and contaminants.
“Oily woods such as Iroko and Teak will require washing down with white spirit to remove natural wood oils, as natural wood oils prevent absorption of Rustins Textured Decking Oil into timber, causing loss of adhesion.”
- Rustins Decking Cleaner can be used to clean the surface.
- Apply 3 coats of Rustins Decking Oil to get the perfect results for your wood.
TOP TIP: Fill holes and imperfections with a suitable timber putty.
