Untreated, weathered decking: For untreated grey and weathered wood use Ronseal Decking Restorer to restore the deck’s natural colour and provide a sound base for application which ensures the stain penetrates effectively.
Previously finished decking: Use Ronseal Decking Cleaner & Reviver to remove any dust, grease, oil, mildew, algae and other contaminants. Remove any loose, flaking or peeling coatings. To avoid patchiness, and if using a contrasting colour, make sure you remove all previous finishes using Ronseal Decking Stripper.Ensure cut ends are adequately protected using Ronseal Decking End Grain Preserver.
New wood: New decking should be allowed to weather naturally (usually 6 months). This will make sure any pre-treatment has eroded allowing the stain to penetrate and adhere to the deck.
Clean the deck with Ronseal Decking Cleaner & Reviver using a scrubbing brush to open the pores of the wood and remove any contamination from the manufacture of the timber. Rinse thoroughly with clean water ideally using a pressure washer. Allow to dry fully before overcoating. Test effectiveness of the cleaning by splashing the deck with water. If beading occurs, re-clean. Retest before applying any stain. The shade label indicates approximate colour only.
We recommend you test a small area to determine the final colour which may be influenced by the texture, grain, colour, porosity, type of wood and previous treatment.
