Ronseal Decking Protector is a lightly pigmented, highly water repellent decking treatment that gives wooden decking a more natural looking finish.
Decked areas to be treated with Ronseal Decking Protector should be clean, dry and free from surface dust, dirt, oil, grease, wax and silicone.
For all bare wood decking including tanalised, pressure treated and preservative impregnated decking timbers.
Hardwood decking usually requires a period of weathering to allow the surface grain to open up. This allows for better absorption of the decking protector. Check the decking manufacturer's guidance on how long wood decking should be left to weather before treating.
Old 'coating' type finishes such as decking paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed back to bare wood before protecting. Depending on the condition and type of finish, it may require more than one attempt to fully remove the old coating.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply Ronseal Decking Protector in wet conditions or if rain, frost or snow is likely before the product is dry. Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application to achieve a consistent finish.
To preserve the look and performance of wood deck finishes for longer, it is recommended that decked areas are swept with a stiff broom on a regular basis. This is to remove loose leaves, dirt and other organic matter that can settle on the wood deck and in the grooves, which can degrade or damage the finish and decking timbers over time.
If signs of mould or algae appear, use an appropriate cleaner, such as Ronseal Garden Cleaner. Do not use any regular cleaning household detergent as this can be damaging to the finish.
Scuff marks, stains, grease and other surface contaminates can normally be cleaned with Ronseal High Performance Decking Cleaner. Stubborn marks and stains may require a light sanding and a thin application of Ronseal Decking Protector to restore.
The condition of wooden decking should be inspected on a regular basis and re-treated as required.
High foot traffic areas that start to appear worn or tired, or that are losing the ability to repel water effectively can be easily restored. First clean with a suitable decking cleaner then re-apply a thin coat of Ronseal Decking Protector to the affected area for an invisible repair.
