Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Stain

Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Stain
  • How to use Before you start :
  • Make sure your decking is clean and free of dirt, oil, grease, wax and silicone. Scrub off any algae, moss or mildew and leave your decking to thoroughly dry.
  • How to prepare decking for staining
  • Untreated, weathered decking -
  • Apply decking restorer to highlight your deck’s natural colour and provide a sound base for application to ensure the stain penetrates effectively.
  • Follow the instructions on the tin to apply your restorer.
  • Leave your deck to thoroughly dry out before applying the stain.
  • Previously treated decking -
  • If your deck has been painted or oiled, use our Decking Stripper to get it back to bare wood. It's not as hard as you think and it's definitely worth it.
  • If your deck has been previously stained, don't try to cover a dark stain with a lighter colour. You'll need to strip it first using our Decking Stripper.
  • New wood -
  • Most new decks come with a bit of waterproofing protection. This could stop the stain from sticking. To avoid this, give your new deck a good scrub with our Decking Cleaner & Reviver. Alternatively, leave it to weather for six months.
  • Rinse thoroughly with water, ideally with a pressure washer.
  • To check if any pre-treatment is remaining, sprinkle some water on the deck and see if it beads.
  • If it doesn't bead, you'll be ready to put on the stain. If it does then you'll have to clean it again until the water stops beading.
  • Allow the wood to dry thoroughly before applying the stain.
  • Application :
  • Your decking stain is best applied in temperatures above 10 degree C. Be sure to pick a day with a clear forecast and make sure your deck is thoroughly dry before you begin.
  • Give the stain a good stir and dip in your brush or pad. Check you’re happy with the colour. Find a small hidden patch of wood and try it.
  • Start in the furthest corner, brushing along the length of the boards. Work on 3-4 boards at a time so you don’t get any overlap marks.
  • You’ll need to put on 2 coats. Leave 4 hours between each coat. After 24 hours you’ll be able to get your furniture out and use the deck.
  • If you get any stain on yourself, wash it off with warm soapy water.
  • And that’s it! Your decking is now protected against all weather conditions and heavy footfall – so there’s no need to worry about a summer BBQ ruining it.
  • Cleaning :
  • Sweep your decking with a stiff broom to help your stain looking it’s best for longer.
  • Use a broom to remove debris, leaves and dirt that can work its way into the grooves of your decking.
  • If you notice mould or algae, clean it to prevent it getting worse.
  • Repair :
  • You should regularly inspect your decking for signs of dirt or damage.
  • If you notice a spot that’s not quite up to standard, all you need to do is lightly sand it and reapply a thin coat of the stain to the problem area.
