Timber needs protection from the elements if it’s to last and look good. Good
quality timber oils are the best way to protect deck timbers.
Step 1: Clean the deck with Cabot’s Deck Clean. Simply mix, scrub and rinse off.
Cover plants and other items under the deck to prevent damage.
Step 2: When the deck is completely dry, apply the Decking Oil with a lamb’s
wool applicator. Use a brush to cut-in around posts and along walls, then use
long strokes with the applicator to oil about 5 or 6 boards at a time.
Don’t stop partway along boards or you’ll get a “pause mark” in the finish.
Step 3: Apply a second coat, and then wait for it to dry!
Cabot’s Natural Decking Oil is available at all good hardware stores.
