Liberon Decking Oil feeds, protects and enhances the natural beauty of old and new decking boards. It is perfect for reviving and restoring colour to weathered and greying decking, and is also suitable for use on garden fences, sheds, garden gates and hot tub surrounds.
Please note: Clear decking oils enhance the natural colour and character of the wood, giving an almost damp like appearance. To get an indication of how the decking would look once oiled, dampen a section of the deck with water.
Ensure that decking is clean, dry and free from dust, dirt and any other surface contaminants prior to applying Liberon Decking Oil.
Please note: Decking made from oily or resinous timbers such as Massaranduba, Bangkirai, Garapa, Larch and Douglas Fir usually require a period of 'weathering' prior to applying a decking treatment. Check the decking supplier / manufacturer's guidance on how long decking should be allowed to weather before applying a decking treatment.
Always do a test area before starting any project, to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Please note: The type and age of timber can have a dramatic impact on how much decking oil the wood needs. As an example, softwood decking that is old will likely require more oil than a relatively new hardwood decking that still retains a fair amount of natural oil.
To test how much oil your decking needs, apply one coat, then apply a droplet of oil in a corner. If the droplet of oil soaks into the wood then a further coat can be applied. Repeat this process until the droplet of oil sits as a bead on the surface of the wood and no longer soaks in to the timber. This is an indication that the timber has absorbed as much oil as possible and doesn't require any more.
To preserve the look and performance of the oiled finish for longer, it is recommended that decked areas are swept with a stiff broom on a regular basis. This is to remove any loose leaves, dirt and other organic matter that can settle on the deck and in the grooves, which can degrade or damage the finish and decking timbers over time.
For heavily soiled decks or decking affected by mould, mildew and grime, clean with Liberon Tough Deck Clean and Revive.
Apply 1 or 2 coats of Liberon Decking Oil once yearly as part of a routine maintenance schedule, to avoid decking finishes looking tired and worn.
On high traffic areas, re-apply 1 or 2 coats of Decking Oil as and when required, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
