About Decking Oils and Stains

Promain have seen an increase in questions relating to wooden decking treatment over the past 10 years. "How do I get the best finish?" or "Which product would be best to protect my wooden decking?" are just a couple of the questions that we regularly get asked.

As wood is a natural material it expands and contracts with varying moisture content in the atmosphere, which means it can be quite difficult to find the perfect decking oil, stain or even paint. Thankfully for you, Promain are the UK's leading suppliers of Wood stains, Decking Oils, and Coloured Paint for Timber Decking, and with quality hardwearing products like Owatrol Textrol, Osmo Anti-Slip Oil, Blackfriar Decking Stain, and of course Owatrol Aquadecks, there's no reason why you should look anywhere else when searching for Wood Stains or Decking Oil.

Timber decking is also affected by the UV rays from the sun.  This will dry out the timber and it splits, cracks and warps, again causing some issues in relation to choosing the best decking oil or paint to suit your aesthetic request. 

Promain recommend the use of Owatrol Seasonite as this will help the timber, including pressurised timber, to stabilise giving the best all year round result.  It will also reduce the amount of moisture your wooden decking absorbs. 

From these a range of Osmo or Owatrol, Blackfriar or Guard Industries products can be applied to enhance the natural colour or stain to a new colour giving you complete control over the appearance of your wooden decking paint colour and finish.  Owatrol even offer a Solid Colour Woodstain with 53 colours, such as blue, white, brown, mulberry and many more.  Please see our demonstration videos or give us a call for a completely impartial step by step walkthrough on how best to treat your wooden decking and which product will achieve your desired look by using any of our wood stains, decking oil or coloured decking paint.
