1. Prepare to treat your deck with the following tools & products:
2. Prepare the surface prior to applying any treatment
With some water and a rag, wipe down the deck cleaning up any debris and dust.
Once you have finished wiping it down, ensure that the deck dries prior to applying the paint.
3. Apply the Australis to the timber
Pour the necessary quantity needed for the decking job in your paint tray. Apply the Australis decking oil generously to the wood with big sweeps using the Roller combined with the Roller Frame.
For the smaller areas, gaps and edges, make sure to use the paint brush to get into the small and harder to reach areas, including the gaps in between the planks.
4. Apply another coat of Australis
Leave the Australis Natural Decking Oil to dry for 24 hours as recommended. Apply a second coat.
Foot traffic can occur after 8 hours on each of the coats.
Things to note:
It is best to treat a wooden deck after it has been weathered a bit, however not entirely neccesary.
You are able to use a paint applicator instead of a roller if you'd like. Steps are exactly the same as with a roller.
