Find out more about how to protect your decking from the effects of weather and sunshine in our blog.

Decking oil is an essential product for keeping your garden decking in good condition, making it look good for longer and last longer, too. Our blog post about decking maintenance reveals more.

If your decking is not preserved we recommended that you treat with Barrettine Wood Preservative prior to oiling.

Before application it is important to ensure that your deck is free from any pre-existing algae and mildew. For best results, jet wash and apply a decking cleaner before applying the decking oil.

Drying times are generally between 12 and 48 hours depending on the type and condition of decking, application of the decking oil and environmental conditions.

Visibly fed oil into the wood by Iskra Holstein

My decking has had several different coats over the ten or so years it has been down. However I never considered that wood can be oiled to preserve it. This product has made a huge difference. I will still have to keep removing some flaky deposits left by previous coatings but at least the wood is showing signs of deep protection, like beading rainwater. I just wish I had gone to the internet earlier and read reviews of products rather that reading off the back of tins available in local DIY...

Good quality, but colour is not what we expected by Fang Li

This light oak gave some colour, however, it doesn't come out nicely with the Wicks premium decking. We are happy with the quality but will not buy this colour next time.

Good quality, but colour is not what we expected by Fang Li

We thought we'd try this colour, but it turns out to be too red for our garden scheme and decking. Otherwise, the oil quality is good. We will be happy to buy it again but perhaps different colour option.

Really nice finish by Chris

I didn't use this on decking but on the oak beams on the outside wall of my (old) house. On top of wood preserver and strain, it gave a really nice matt/satin finish just as I wanted. good value too.

Superior wood protection by Douglas Bremner

I'm using this product as a top coat of protection to a wooden summer house I have recently erected. Unlike paint this soaks into the wood and after it dries is offers what I think is superior protection to the wood. It is thin so it goes into all the cracks and joints and really soaks into the exposed cut ends of the wood. It also lubricates the wood so that shrinkage is minimised and it's so easy to apply. to recoat is simple also, just a light buff with a sanding pad and slap it on for long lasting protection. It's that easy. Buy and try. You wont be disappointed.

Very good by George Humphreys

Realy quick to apply with no trouble getting in the grooves. Used 2 coats on 1 yr old decking leaving it looking very fresh again. The light oak is a touch red in colour but not an issue. Would definitely recommend.

Great product and great service by Manubhai Patel

The product is exactly what I expected and received it well before the scheduled time of delivery.The best part of the product is that the consistency of the item is just right for me to use it in my spray gun and that made my work lot lot easier and very quickly too.I am thinking of using a similar product of different shade on my garden fences next year.

Great finish by Mike R

After a great deal of research I plumped for thus product. After two coats I'm pleased with the finish. I'd recommend applying with the Manns Decking Applicator and finishing with two coats. I applied it in late September without any problems. A slight bloom was remidied with a going over with white spirit. I'll see how it goes over winter and decide whether to apply a third coat to get an even darker finish. Colour on softwood reminds me if teak so very pleased. Service from Wood Finishes Direct was excellent and can't fault them. I'd certainly use them for all my future needs.
