Give your decking some TLC & transform its appearance

Timber decking really benefits from some TLC at this time of the year in order to protect it from the elements and make sure it’s looking its best ready for the summer ahead. A great start would be to get rid of any build-up of mould, mildew and black spotting that have made an appearance over the autumn and winter months.

Tough Deck Clean and Revive

V33 specialise in innovative surface coatings, and have been coming up with leading high-quality products for DIYers for over 60 years. The company’s decking preparation product is called Tough Deck Clean and Revive.


Two factors make it particularly good value for money: it has a high performance, and affords an impressive 30m2/l coverage. Its formulation allows rapid and efficient deck cleaning, leaving it ready for a new finish to be applied. Available in 2 litre bottles, and priced at £17.50.

Once you’ve got your decking clean, applying the right decking oil will make sure it's water-repellent and UV-protected while also looking great for longer. This means money saved in the long run since failing to protect decking properly could result in having to replace it sooner.

High Performance Decking Oil

The V33 range includes two high quality decking oils, formulated to feed, protect and enhance the natural beauty of old or new exterior decking. While both decking oils in the new range are UV- and water-resistant, one also offers anti-slip properties, unlike other comparable options currently available.


This particular oil, called V33 High Performance Decking Oil, is a quick-drying, water-based version, ensuring long-lasting protection against sunlight and temperatures of -100C to +350C. It's available in four colours including Clear, Light Oak, Teak and Grey, and offered in 2.5 or 5 litre tins - 1 litre covers 12m2 and is is priced at £41 for the smaller size and £57 for the larger one.

UV-Resistant Decking Oil

V33 UV-Resistant Decking Oil is solvent-based, and efficiently protects and revives decking. It's available in Clear, Medium Oak and Teak in the same tin sizes as above and priced at £38 for 2.5 litres and £54 for 5 litres - 1 litre covers 8m2. Both the High Performance and the UV-Resistant Decking Oil formulations leave wood with a beautifully natural, translucent finish.
