New decking is usually pre-treated with a wood preservative. If using new un-preserved timber apply 1 to 2 coats of clear Barrettine Wood Preservative first. If renovating decking that hasn't been treated for a number of years, first ensure that the decking has been thoroughly stripped and cleaned before treating with Barrettine Wood Preservative. Allow the wood preservative to dry for 5 days before applying Barrettine Decking Treatment.

Ensure that the decking is clean, dry and free from dust, dirt and algae before applying Barrettine Decking Treatment. Any traces of fungi, mould or algae on the decking can be removed by using Barrettine Fungicidal Wash (Multicide) prior to treating the area with wood preservative and decking treatment.

New wood decking should be wiped down with White Spirit to remove surface resins and other contaminates. Highly resinous timbers and some hardwoods may effect performance and final results - Always do a test area first.

Barrettine Decking Stain must be stirred thoroughly before and during application. Decant contents of the tin into a paint container or tray.

For the best results, apply to all sides of the decking before construction. Brush or roller on in the direction of the wood grain. Normally, one liberally applied coat is sufficient, if however you require a deeper colour, a second coat can be applied after 12-24 hours.

  • Showerproof within 2 hours
  • Allow at least 24 hours before using your decking
  • Best results achieved with 12 hours between each coat. This allows for previous coats to fully absorb into the decking.

This decking stain cannot be used on decking that has been previously painted or varnished. All previous coatings must be thoroughly removed before this product can be used.

Quick, easy and great result by Mark

The product is great, applied one coat in about 45 mins, decking area was 22 feet x 11 feet. The oil had a stain within it and it was exactly what we were after. It also cost cheaper thans some other premium brands, so better on the pocket. One tip, apply with a decking brush on a broom handle, saves your knees!

Great product Went on really easily by Avril Moulds

I am not the greatest at DIY so the thought of giving my decking a new lease of life was not appealing. However Battenttine decking stain was easy to use and looked fabulous. It actually looks quite professional. I may even attempt more DIY in the future.

Excellent product, I have used barrettine a few times now and the level of protection provided to the decking leaves the competition standing...all I can say is don't waste your money on another brand and end up doing the job twice.. You won't be disappointed at the results

Best decking stain ever by Linda Maddox

This stuff is great. Having tried other products, (Ronseal, Cuprinol) in the past and been disappointed, I did a bit of research this time and was impressed by the reviews about Barrentine's deck stain. They were all correct; it went on like a dream and since we finished the job everyone has been very complimentary. Our decking looks good and I'm confident it will do so for a good few years.

Excellent Product by Paul Stroud

I had been looking for a good product to re stain my decking after having stripped it back to bare wood.Spent ages looking at the usual Cuprinol and Ronseal products then came across the Barrettine range that had very good customer reviews. Purchased the 5L Dark Oak decking oil stain from Wood Finishes Direct, prompt delivery and very well packaged. The first liquid coat easily soaked into the bare wood, simply to apply by brush. After 24 hours I applied a second coat which give a richer and darker finish. Once dried it looks lovely and still have quarter of the tin left. Very pleased with this product and will certainly purchase again when required. The previous water based decking stain had peeled and flaked but I am hopeful this oil based stain will not. (although I accept it will need a re coat every year or two).

Wonderful product - protects and colours your wood beautifully! by Debbie B

Having already used Wood-Finishes before I knew the company was very reliable. Plus I had bought the Barretine Wood Preserver (in Golden Brown) last time for my fence panels and it made them look like new. And with the decking stain I was not disappointed. The dark oak is a beautiful rich dark brown with a hue of red and now my old decking looks like it has just been laid. Highly recommend the company and the product.
