Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Oil

Like a truly great film sequel, Ronseal Ultimate Decking Oil takes the resounding qualities of its original and refines them, offering something new and exciting. Derived from an alternative, water-base, Ronseals follow-up decking oil constitutes excellent value for money, offering up to twice the durability as its original counterpart.

Special, unique UV filters will also ensure your decking is protected from sun damage, expertly preserving its sense of colour in the long term. A superb repellency against water is also evident. A rainproof status is achieved in just 90 minutes following application, a full 30 minutes faster than its original counterpart.

One unfortunate reality of weathering is its ability to remove natural oils from treated wood over time, diminishing its finish. Fortunately, Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Oil is specifically designed with an awareness of this issue, actively replacing any natural oils that were previously lost. The nourishment of your decking, therefore, is a long-term guarantee.

Ronseal Ultimate Decking Paint

Ronseal’s water-based decking paint is designed to reinvigorate decking and bestow a tone of vitality. Application of this product will include a lease of life, creating a garden paradise of sorts that will help transform your garden into an idealistic summer retreat. 

Should there be a need for any renovation, this product will smooth down any rough surfaces, fill any visible cracks and lockdown any splinters lurking around your decking. Once applied, it will resist foot traffic on those social gatherings in the sun. Additionally, you’ll receive excellent durability against weathering, ideal for the otherwise unruly British weather. 

A range of attractive colours, such as Deep Blue and Willow, provide a vibrant sense of style and comfort to your decking. Ronseal Ultimate Decking Paint offers a safe, reliable pair of hands that will ultimately transform your garden aesthetic, once more validating the brand’s familiar slogan.
