If you are prepared to do so then, by all means, treating your deck with a good decking oil such as our Premium version is OK for you and will give you much pleasure. If, however, you are not into maintenance – and how many people are – then choose one of the new acrylic deck finishes which are easy to maintain with re-coating required anywhere from 2 to 4 years depending on your climatic conditions.
Flood Spa-N-Deck (100% Acrylic) will outlast oils up to 5 times and is the much more cost effective way to go in the long run. You will save both time and money. They finish is semi-transparent and some users have experienced years of good service before re-coating. Unlike other finishes Flood Spa-N-Deck is guaranteed for up to 4 years against peeling, cracking or blistering and re-coating is as simple as a good clean and another coat of product.
