Decked areas to be treated should be clean, dry and free from traces of dust, dirt, oil, grease, wax and silicone.

New Decking Preparation

For all bare wood decking including tantalised, pressure treated and preservative impregnated decking timbers.

New softwood decking

  1. Treat with Clear Ronseal Total Wood Preservative (as this is wax-free) for the best protection. (The coloured versions contain wax which will cause adhesion problems)
  2. If possible, preserve all sides including end grain prior to installation
  3. Sweep the decking with a stiff broom to remove all traces of surface dirt and debris
  4. Use a suitable decking cleaner if required before oiling

New hardwood decking

Hardwood decking usually requires a period of weathering to allow the surface grain to open up. This allows for better absorption of the decking oil. Check the decking manufacturer's guidance on how long decking should be left to weather before treating.

Old Decking Preparation

Old coating type finishes such as decking paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed back to bare wood before oiling. Depending on the condition and type of finish, it may require more than one attempt to fully remove the old coating.

  1. Ensure that all 'coating' type finishes have been fully removed to expose bare wood by either jet washing or using a dedicated decking stripper and remover
  2. Clean old decking oil finishes thoroughly with Ronseal High Performance Decking Cleaner Sachets
  3. For decking affected by mould, algae or moss, or to restore the colour of decking that has turned grey or silver over time, use a decking restorer or reviver gel
  4. For the best protection, treat with a suitable exterior wood preservative
  5. If possible, preserve all sides including end grain prior to installation
  6. Sweep the decking with a stiff broom to remove all traces of surface dirt and debris before oiling

Always do a small test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Do not apply in damp conditions, when rain is likely, or when are temperatures below 10℃.

  1. Shake the tin thoroughly before pouring the entire contents into a suitable metal or plastic container; if using more than one tin mix them together (Do not thin or dilute)
  2. Apply liberally to ensure that even penetration and complete coverage of the decking is achieved
  3. Treat 3-4 decking boards at a time to avoid overlap marks
  4. Redistribute any excess oil along the decking boards or wipe off with a clean cloth
  5. Allow 4 hours drying time between coats
  6. Apply an even second coat as above

Regular Cleaning

To preserve the oiled finish for longer, we recommend that wooden decking is swept with a stiff broom on a regular basis to remove loose leaves, dirt and other organic matter. This prevents a build up of organic matter that can settle on the deck and in the grooves, which can degrade and damage the finish and decking timbers over time.

Deep Cleaning

For deep cleaning, use Ronseal Decking & Garden Cleaner.

Maintenance

Inspect the finish on an annual basis and apply a fresh coat of oil as and when required.

Repair

Stubborn marks and stains may require a light sanding before re-applying a thin coat of Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Oil to the affected area.

Easy to apply by Stewart

First time I used the water based one, I usually use the oil based one but upgraded to the ultimate one. It was easy to apply and dried fairly quickly, the second coat was easier to apply than the first. It looks really good on the new decking.

Easy to use and gives an excellent end result. Used on decking for 6 years and there is very little sign of deterioration of the planks. All round a very good product and does what it says on the tin.

Great product at a good price by Michael Lynch

A very good product, easy to apply and a good choice of colours. Natural Oak chosen to apply on 10 year old decking which had been regularly maintained with clear decking oil but needed a 'make over'. Very pleased with result, so much so have ordered another 5 litre can to do an older area of decking, hope that ends up looking as good - I'm confident it will.
