  • Compared to softwood, hardwood doesn't absorb
    much oil which leads to a lesser intense finish.
  • Sanding will make timber more absorbent and
    will also improve its color depth.

  • Before applying protective oil to the timber be
    sure that it is dry and is sand planned for
    better oil penetration.
  • Prepare Your Timber
  • There are different kinds of timber and each has
    its own unique quality that needs specific
    process of maintenance.

  • Pressure-impregnated Pine
  • When delivered, wood pine contains high moisture
    and they need to be left dried for 204 months
    prior to oiling. Weather the timber for two weeks
    and sand prior to coating. Let the timber lose
    color through weathering and then start oiling.

  • 3. Continue applying oil until done.
  • 4. Let it dry for a day without load.

  • When the deck got wet with water within the day
    after oiling, another oil coating is ideal. Also
    if you observed light spots on the deck after it
    has dried, second coating is also needed to
    saturate it thoroughly.

    year. Decking should be checked for decayed wood,
    dry spots, and oil maintenance.

  • 1. Decking should be cleaned properly with
    alkaline cleaner. Let it dry.
  • 2. Use a short-haired roller or other applicator
    to apply oil. Make it a thin coating.
