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

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.”
