Just fitted new decking in your garden?

Have you applied any decking oil yet? It'll be worth while because the decking oil will keep the wood protected throughout the year. You don't have to be an expert in decking oil to select the right product for your needs though. Take a trip to a DIY store and you'll be greeted with a whole host of oils that offer top quality protection to decking and outside wooden furniture. Pick a nice dry weekend and you'll soon have the decking oil applied, leaving your wooden flooring looking gorgeous and ready to enjoy. Once you have treated your decking to a spot of decking oil it should be good for a couple of seasons at the least.

How do you apply decking oil?

Most people simply paint the decking oil onto the surface using a decent quality brush. If you prefer, a foam roller could be used to apply the decking oil, it all depends on how much time you have. Use a foam roller and it will speed up the application process but you might experience spray from the head of the roller. Take your time with a brush and it'll take longer to paint the wood with decking oil, but it could also prove to be less messy. Either way is fine though and it produces great results. Not only does decking look beautiful once decking oil has been applied, it's well protected from the outside elements as well.

Upkeep of decking oil

If you have the time, apply decking oil each and every year to ensure the outside flooring doesn't fade. Quality decking oil contains special UV filters that prevent the sun from causing the finish to fade. Some manufacturers of decking oil also produce aftercare products that help to keep decking looking stunning once the oil has been applied. Maintenance foams are just one option to consider that are sprayed onto the wood at a later date to keep the decking oil in tip-top condition. It's not difficult to maintain decking. A decent coat of decking oil is all it needs to look lovely through spring, summer and into the autumn.
