Problem Solver - Decking
Decking is a timber horizontal area in the garden and tends to be notched for better non slip properties. This means that when painting or staining it requires a thorough cleaning first. The timber is usually pressure treated so a decorative finish is often all that is needed. An oil can give the benefits of re-vitalising the wood while giving an attractive restored colour.
Stage 1 - Preparation
Use a suitable decking cleaner (following the manufacturers instructions) to remove any surface contamination and allow the surface to fully dry.
