How long does Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain last?

How to apply Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain

Before applying Ronseal Ultimate Protection Decking Stain, there is some preparation that has to be carried out:

  • Untreated, weathered decking: Use a decking restorer to bring out the natural colour. This creates a good base for the stain to penetrate into. Let the deck dry thoroughly before moving on.
  • Previously treated decking: Use Ronseal Decking Stripper to expose the wood again. Avoid covering a dark stain with a lighter one, as the two will not mix well.
  • New wood: Either let the wood weather for 6 months or use Decking Cleaner & Reviver to remove any waterproofing protection on the wood. Once finished, rinse with water. Check to see if any pre-treatment is on the wood by sprinkling on some water. If it beads, you need to clean the wood again. Once fully removed, let the wood dry thoroughly.

You can now apply Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain by following these instructions:

  • Stir the stain thoroughly and check you are happy with the colour by dipping in a brush or pad. Then try it on a small patch of wood.
  • Start in the corner furthest away, using a motion that covers the board length. Try to cover 3-4 boards as this helps avoid overlap marks.
  • A minimum of 2 coats is needed, with a drying time of 4 hours between each one. After the final coat, leave it for 24 hours before using the decking.
  • You can use warm soapy water to wash off any stain that has splashed onto you.

Is Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain oil-based?

Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain is water-based rather than oil-based.

Can you spray Ronseal Ultimate Decking Stain?
