Decking and summer house restore

Post by london2day » Mon May 21, 2018 6:27 pm

Hi guys

I am looking for an advice from your experience regarding decking and summer house.

I have a weathered decking which left untreated for 4 years. I m looking to restore as the stain if flaking off.

I m going wash and sand it before applying anything .

The thing i m not sure about is if applying 2 costs maybe of wood presever first, and then oil would the best approach.

My goal is not only to restore it but also to protect it and provide longevity.

Although doing the above technic makes sense but i m a bit concerned about something. The wood might absorb the presever( clear colour ) and by the time we add oil ( green colour ), the timber might become saturated already and would not be able to absorb the oil .

I m considering using sadolin classic oil and barrettine premier universal preserver as a pre coat.

Your advice would highly appreciated and followed.

Kindest regards

OK, buy some decking cleaner. (Screwfix have it on offer this week) give it a good scrub down with a stiff brush, rinse. repeat.

leave to dry. (Day or two)

I would use 2 x coats of johnstones shed and fence stain in the colour of your choice ( exactly the same stuff as decking stain but half the price :wink: )

or decking oil if you want to keep the colour natural.
