Protect your decking with Liberon Decking Oil

During lockdown, many of us discovered gardening as a new hobby and now want to keep it up, not only for the pleasure that a pretty garden affords, but also in terms of the many benefits working outside brings. No matter how beautiful your garden looks, however, a decking area in need of TLC can prove a let down. Over time, due to exposure to sun, rain and the elements in general, decking can fade, begin to look tired, and also be weakened.

Liberon Decking Oil is the ideal product for protecting wood and making it look as good as it possibly can. This specific type of oil has been developed to withstand the demands imposed on wood by the elements. A high quality choice, Liberon Decking Oil is formulated to penetrate deep into the wood, is highly water-resistant with UV filters to prevent fading, and helps to restore colour and beauty to decking that's already weathered.


Liberon's Marketing Manager, Richard Bradley, comments: "We'd recommend applying one or two coats of Decking Oil once a year as routine maintenance. On high traffic areas, re-apply one or two coats as and when required. As oil brings out the timber's natural colours, it’s a good idea to test the product on a separate piece of wood before you start, which will allow you to gauge the finished effect. Another tip is to select an oil – such as one from the Liberon range - for use on fences, garden sheds or gates, to make your money go further."

Liberon Decking Oil is easy to apply:

1. Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from previous finishes and dust. Lightly sand new wood and clean old. Liberon's Tough Deck Clean & Revive is ideal for this.

2. Stir the oil well prior to use. Apply a generous coat of Liberon Decking Oil using a paintbrush or roller. Allow the oil to penetrate for 15 to 30 minutes, then apply a second coat without waiting for the first to dry. Continue to apply further coats until the timber no longer absorbs the oil. Wipe off any excess with a lint-free cotton cloth and allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours before using the decking.

Liberon Decking Oil is available in a choice of Clear, Medium Oak and Teak finishes, in either 2.5 or 5 litre sizes.
