Our Deck Care And Maintenance Tips

With decking care and maintenance, choosing a wood stain designed to maintain or preserve timber helps to keep your deck and timber outdoor areas looking good for longer. The wood stains in our range combine the very latest technology and formulations designed to protect and enhance the natural beauty of timber. 

Use a Quality Wood Stain

The Wood stains in our range include: 

Prepare the Deck 

One of the most important painting tips when it comes to deck maintenance DIY is to ensure you prepare and clean the surface prior to painting. With the right preparation and products, the job will be much easier, the finish will look fantastic and will also last for longer. 

Cleaning an Existing Deck

For DIY deck cleaning, we recommend our wood deck cleaner as it not only cleans, revives & prepares your timber surface for painting with wood stain, but also helps the timber to absorb the stain, ensuring maximum adhesion & performance. 

Preparing a New Deck

For new bare timber, our Woodcare Rapid Prep is ideal and makes deck maintenance DIY super easy as a one-step preparation product that allows for immediate coating of your timber.
