What to use: Cabot’s Aquadeck
Why you should use it: Aquadeck is highly durable, low odour water based decking oil is lightly pigmented and has been designed to enhance and protect the natural look of your exterior timber. Hard-wearing, it lasts two times longer than other oil-based decking oils – no more constant re-application!
How it works: Aquadeck's advanced dual technology allows natural oils to penetrate and nourish timber, creating a durable acrylic barrier for a beautiful natural finish. It is ideal for use on decks, garden furniture, pergolas, fences and gates.
Before you get started, there are a few things you’ll need to do first – preparation is key!
Preparing the surface properly before you begin allows the oil to glide on smoothly for even coverage.
New Bare Timber: First up, scrub damp timber with Cabot’s New Timber Prep to draw out tannins and oils from the surface. Then, use Cabot’s Deck Clean according to the instructions on the pack. Remove excess water with the squeegee on Cabot’s Deck Prep brush and allow the timber to dry for at least one hour.
