How To Use Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Stain

To prepare the deck firstly ensure that it is clean and dry.  If there is algal or fungal contamination this can be removed with Decking Cleaner and Reviver.  This will also restore the wood’s normal colour if it has greyed from sunlight and will help the stain adhere to the wood.  

If a deck has previously been oiled or painted then use a Decking Stripper to get back to bare wood.  This will also be necessary if you wish to use a light stain over a darker colour.

New decks sometimes have a basic waterproofing treatment.  If water beads on the surface then this will be the case.  You can either remove the treatment with the Cleaner and Reviver or simply allow the deck to weather for around 6 months.

Once the deck is completely dry, the stain should be applied on a dry day when the temperature is above 10 degrees C.  Stir thoroughly and apply by brush or applicator pad.  Allow 4 hours before applying the second coat.  The deck will be ready for use 24 hours after the final coat.

We’ve written a blog about things to consider when laying a new deck, how to treat different types of decking and some best practices for when applying a finish. Check it out here.
