How often to I need to treat my decking?
Hardwood decks needs to be treated every year. They tend to turn into a silver or grey colour in time, but by treating it every year you are protecting it from the UV rays.
When treating your Hardwood deck oils work better.To treat the timber oil is rubbed on with a cloth. The oil impregnates the timber which means it seeps into the timber so it is less likely to dry, you also do not have a peeling problem like you would with softwoods.
For a soft wood deck a wood stain like Ronseal is ideal.
